“We’ve seen amazing consumer reception and strong pre-orders for Charge 3, which are even better than Versa in its first six weeks”

Part of the Charge franchise, the intelligently crafted Charge 3, available for $149.95 (USD), can be worn around the clock to help users take action thanks to its health and fitness sensors and algorithms. “We’ve seen amazing consumer reception and strong pre-orders for Charge 3, which are even better than Versa in its first six weeks, underscoring why the Charge family has been our most popular product line for the past few years,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit. Capable of assisting with goal-based exercise modes and swim tracking, the device has also been designed to help with female health tracking and sleep Insight.

Why Fitbit Charge 3 Is The Smartest Tracker Yet

As the first wearable brand to introduce sleep tracking in 2009, Fitbit also announced that its Fitbit Labs Sleep Score beta program would be open for enrollment to qualifying Fitbit users starting in November. Fitbit users who are accepted into the beta will receive a nightly score that provides a complete picture of their overall sleep and what factors affect it based on critical metrics tracked by any Fitbit device with advanced 24/7 PurePulse heart rate tracking.vi For devices with a relative SpO2 sensor, including Fitbit Charge 3TM, Fitbit IonicTM and Fitbit VersaTM, Fitbit will also be testing for breathing disruptions. In the future, with FDA approval, the data from this sensor technology could indicate more serious health conditions, like sleep apnea.

On what the Charge 3 has to offer Park said: “Charge 3 is our most innovative tracker yet, featuring our most advanced sensor technology, bringing the relative SpO2 sensor to the tracker form factor for the first time. Data from this sensor will feed into the upcoming launch of our Fitbit Labs Sleep Score beta, which will allow users to understand metrics like their sleep quality and breathing disturbances better. In the future, with FDA approval, this data could be used to screen and detect more serious health conditions, such as sleep apnea.”
