Google’s new fitness tracker, the Fitbit Charge 6, has been officially revealed. This advanced tracker is designed to accurately monitor health and fitness levels. According to Google, the Charge 6 is their most accurate fitness tracker yet. It also has the ability to connect to compatible gym equipment and allows users to control YouTube Music, Google Maps, and Wallet directly from their wrists.
To ensure accuracy, Google has added advanced health sensors and a new machine learning algorithm to the Charge 6. This combination provides users with the most accurate heart rate tracking on a Fitbit wearable device to date.
The Charge 6 offers more personalized ways to track and stay motivated during workouts compared to previous Fitbit trackers. It features over 40 exercise modes, including 20 new options like HIIT, strength training, and snowboarding. Additionally, for the first time, Google is bringing its tools to a tracker, meaning the Fitbit Charge 6 will have Google Maps and Google Wallet. It also includes Google’s first Accessibility feature on a Fitbit device with Zoom + Magnification.
In terms of specs, the Charge 6 includes an optical heart rate monitor, 3-axis accelerometer, built-in GPS + GLONASS, vibration motor, NFC support, ambient light sensor, and various sensors compatible with EXG and EDA Scan apps.
The fitness tracker has a water protection rating of 5 ATM but is not waterproof. Fitbit Charge 6 is expected to offer up to 7 days of battery life, though using the always-on display and SpO2 features will drain the battery faster.
The Fitbit Charge 6 is now available for pre-order online for $159.95 at the Google Store, Fitbit, and select global retailers. It comes in three color options: Coral, Obsidian, and Porcelain.
