Fitbit has finally made its newest fitness tracker Charge 3 available for purchase in India. It was introduced for the Indian market earlier this year but did not go on sale until now. It has been a long wait for all Fitbit fans in the country but the fitness tracker can now be purchased in time for one's new year fitness resolutions.
The Fitbit Charge 3 features an OLED touch-screen display panel. It shows all the relevant data which prevents the user from relying on the connected smartphone to check details all the time. The display is said to be about 40% larger and brighter than the previously released Charge 2. Like many other such products from the company, it is water resistant up to 50 meters which means it can be taken out for swim sessions. It even has a dedicated mode called Swim Mode aimed at showing relevant data related to one's swimming activity.
One of the highlighting Charge 3 features is support for goal-based exercise modes. There are more than 15 goal-based exercise modes for all sorts of exercises like biking, running, swimming, and yoga. It has inbuilt GPS support so that one can go out on for walks, runs or any other activity without having to bring his smartphone all the time. It is the first Fitbit fitness tracker to feature SpO2 sensors meant for monitoring blood oxygen levels.
For female users, the Fitbit Charge 3 comes with female-specific health tracking features. These features are aimed at helping them get a better understanding of their menstrual cycle by using the Fitbit app to log period and ovulation (coming soon), record symptoms, and compare cycle trends over time.
It is further claimed to last for up to 7 days on a single charge. It has been priced at Rs. 13,999 with the option to choose from Black with an aluminum case and Blue Gray with Rose Gold aluminum case. There is also a Fitbit Charge 3 Special Edition with NFC payment support for Rs. 15,999. It also has Classic band, Woven band, and Leather band options priced at Rs. 2,990; Rs. 3,490; and Rs. 4,490 respectively.
