Fitbit Charge 3 specs and images leaked ahead of launch

15 August 2018 2

A few days back we saw some leaked images of the Fitbit Charge 3 fitness band, however, there were no further details available at that time. However, now we have a lot of details like the official renders and specifications of the upcoming Fitbit fitness tracker that may launch sometime later this month in IFA 2018.

Unlike earlier rumors, the current leaks suggest that the Fitbit Charge 3 will not feature a built-in GPS and you would need to pair it with your smartphones to allow it to tracks your fitness activities that include running, swimming or cycling etc.

It is said that the Charge 3 will feature a full touchscreen display unlike the previous fitness trackers from Fitbit. Once paired with an Android device, the Fitbit Charge 3 may also let you send quick messages if someone calls or texts you.

Reports suggest that the Fitbit Charge 3 may be swim-proof and water resistant at up to 50 meters. The 5ATM rating is a first for the Charge line.

The Charge 3 may be available in two variants a standard one and a special edition which may include a built-in NFC chip that can be used to make payments via the Fitbit Pay. Apart from NFC, the special edition may also feature a special casing design and straps.

Though both the variants are said to feature basic features like heart rate monitoring, exercise/workout tracking, sleep tracking and interchangeable strap etc.

There is no confirmation about the expected pricing of the upcoming Charge 3 fitness band and we will have to wait for an official announcement from Fitbit. Till then do let us know what do you think about its pricing?

This is not good news to hear that Fitbit Charge 3 won't have a built-in GPS. Needing to pair with your phone for that reason is a sure downside.
