Fitbit’s Next Device Might Be Called The Fitbit Charge

Gizmodo obtained what appears to be early marketing materials for FitBit’s upcoming product line.  Their new tracker will reportedly be called the “Fitbit Charge”.

The Fitbit Charge appears to basically the same as the recalled Fitbit Force, but presumably without the skin irritants.  The feature set gleaned from the leaked images include:

  • Tracks steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed, & active minutes
  • Displays stats, time, & caller ID
  • Monitors sleep quality
  • Silent, vibrating alarm
  • Water resistant

An upgraded model is also shown, called the “Fitbit Charge HR”, which will likely include heart rate monitoring capabilities.  The feature set includes:

  • PurePulse continuous, wrist-based heart rate for better calorie tracking & cardio training
  • Tracks steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes & 24/7 heart rate
  • Use with MobileRun on the Fitbit App to see run stats
  • Displays activity + run stats, time, & caller ID
  • Monitors sleep quality
  • Silent, vibrating alarm
  • Water resistant

Hopefully we’ll see an official announcement from Fitbit soon (that hopefully includes plans for HealthKit integration!).
