Review: Fitbit Charge 3

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

The new Fitbit Charge 3 fitness tracker may look like a dead ringer of its predecessor but closer inspection reveals a thoroughly refined and rethought personal fitness device. Now touting 7-day use on a single charge, the Fitbit Charge 3 is the wearable you can wear 24/7 and which you can even swim with.

The Fitbit Charge 3 has undergone a Zen makeover. The design is sparer and more unobtrusive, the buttons are now capacitive and the display and menu are simplified so that you’re only two or three swipes away from starting an exercise, reading notifications or checking the time.

Built form lightweight but durable aerospace-grade aluminum that has a smooth slightly curved case and a durable Gorilla Glass 3 cover make this one of the tougher Fitbits in the market.

You can buy the Fitbit Charge 3 starting October 7

Fitbit is calling the Charge 3 its “smartest tracker yet” and its coming soon. The company’s latest fitness tracker will be coming to major retailers worldwide, online, and at Fitbit.com starting October 7th. Here the Charge 3 will cost $199.95 for the Black/Graphite Aluminum or Blue Gray/Rose Gold Aluminum models and $219.95 for the Lavender Woven/Rose Gold Aluminum or Frost White/Graphite Aluminum models.

This tracker features a swim-proof design and has a large touchscreen display. Aside from the company’s usual slew of sensors that helps track your health and fitness activities, Fitbit is bringing its relative SpO2 sensor to its tracker form factor for the first time with the Charge 3. The data it gets from this sensor will be fed to the upcoming launch of its Fitbit Labs Sleep Score beta, which lets you better understand sleep-related metrics such as sleep quality and breathing disturbances. This beta program is coming first to the US, Australia, and the UK this November. And when they get FDA approval, this data can even be used to screen and detect more serious health conditions like sleep apnea.
