For those still unconvinced about the promises of smartwatches and just want a good fitness tracker, Fitbit just announced the latest addition to its Charge line. The newly-unveiled Fitbit Charge 3 doesn’t seem like much of an upgrade from Charge 2 at first glance but does come with a few serious upgrades. You probably already noticed the new aluminum body but there’s also the new touchscreen display, 40% larger than the one its older brother. It’s also protected by Gorilla Glass 3 just like the Fitbit Versa.
Furthermore, you can now go for a run without carrying your card or cash, as the Fitbit Charge 3 also brings Fitbit Pay in both the regular and special edition models. The Fitbit Charge 3 also lets you see smartphone notifications, so feel free to leave your phone at home without missing out too much.
Going back to the fitness tracking functions, since that’s the bread and butter of this device, the Charge 3 will let you track fifteen different exercises, including swimming. Yes, it’s water-resistant! Even better, you can now set calorie and distance goals instead of time goals for better results in your training.
To save battery, Fitbit went with connected GPS instead of built-in GPS so, if you really want to track a long run, the Fitbit Ionic might be a better choice. You can pre-order the Fitbit Charge 3 already on the company’s website for $149 (regular edition) or $169 (special edition).
