Google has launched its latest health and fitness tracker, the Fitbit Charge 5. The smartband which is the company's first band-style fitness tracker to come with an ECG feature also features built-in GPS, personalized heart rate features, and an EDA (Electrodermal Activity) sensor which measures the body's response to stress through the tiny changes in the sweat glands on your fingers.
The Fitbit Charge 5 features a 1.04-inch AMOLED color display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and an always-on display option. Its display is two times brighter than its predecessor, the Fitbit Charge 4.
The fitness tracker's impressive sensors include an ECG scanner, a heart rate sensor that calculates Heart Rate Variability (HRV), and Resting Heart Rate (RHR). There’s a blood oxygen saturation sensor (SpO2) as well as a sleep tracker and a breathing tracker.
It provides 20 exercise modes and access to over 200 workouts from certified trainers with Premium. If you are into High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) there are pre-programmed workouts from BODYPUMP BODYCOMBAT and LES MILLS GRIT.
When connected to an Android phone, you can receive and send notifications from your smartphone.
Without the Always-on Display (AOD) and the SpO2 sensor active, the battery life of Google's Fitbit Charge 5 is up to 7 days. Continuous GPS tracking will deplete the battery in 5 hours. The Fitbit Charge 5 charges full in 2 hours.
The Fitbit Charge 5 is available in Black with Graphite Stainless Steel case, Lunar White with Soft Gold Steel case, and Steel Blue with Platinum stainless steel case at a retail price of USD 179.95 (Rs. 13,350 approx.).
