Fitbit has announced the Fitbit Charge 3 fitness tracker with a slew of upgrades that include an improved heart-rate sensor, an enhanced grayscale touchscreen OLED display and waterproof design.
Priced at Rs 13,990, the latest Fitbit wearable will be available across Amazon India, Reliance Digital, Croma, Helios and other major retailers offline and online in India starting January 1, 2019.
The smart band is available in two colours – black with graphite aluminium case and blue-grey with rose gold aluminium case.
Fitbit is also offering a Charge 3 Special Edition tracker for Rs 15,999. Besides, the company also revealed a range of accessories priced between Rs. 2,990 and Rs. 4,490 – including bands in different materials, colours, and finishes.
Upgrades in Fitbit Charge 3
The Fitbit Charge 3 fitness tracker looks a lot like its predecessor (Charge 2). However, the new fitness tracker has got a new aluminium body and Gorilla Glass 3 protection for the display which features grayscale colours instead of just plain black and white.
Compared to the last generation Charge band, the OLED screen of Fitbit Charge 3 is 40 percent larger and brighter.
The Charge 3 smart band also comes with an improved heart-rate sensor, waterproof design, and a SpO2 sensor for estimating differences in blood oxygen levels, automatic exercise recognition and sleep tracking.
The company claims that the fitness tracker can be submerged in water to up to 50 metres, which means it can be used for swim tracking.
In addition, the tracker also supports goal-based exercise modes such as biking, swimming, running, yoga, and weight training. The battery on Charge 3 can last up to 7 days on a single charge, claims Fitbit.
