Fitbit has gotten into the smartwatch space but is still mainly known for its fitness features. Yesterday, Fitbit had introduced an update to their most expensive Fitbit Charge series. In October this year, we should be expecting it to be released to the public. But for now, we can pre-order it with a starting price tag of $150. When you first look at the device, it looks like the Fitbit Charge 2. But, this new watch has a better screen, better durability than the previous versions, and more new features. We know that many smartwatches can last a couple of days between charges but this one can run up to a week – I’ll believe it when I see it.

This device has a touchscreen grayscale OLED display that is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. According to Fitbit – the Fitbit Charge 3s screen is about 40 per cent brighter and larger than the previous versions. The screen also supports shades of grey instead of just black and white and touch navigation instead of having physical buttons.

The Fitbit Charge 3 has a vibrations motor, an altimeter, a 3-axis accelerometer, a relative SpO2 sensor (which shows you your oxygen saturation) and an optical heart rate monitory. Like many other smartwatches, the activity tracker has the ability to sync with your phone and/or computer via Bluetooth. You can also get your regular notifications on your watch and Android users will be able to use quick replies to respond to messages directly from the device.

The Fitbit Charge 3 will have a starting price of $150 but you can pay $170 to get the Fitbit Charge 3 with an NFC chip and to support Fitbit Pay.
