Just last week, pictures of the new Fitbit Charge 5 fitness tracker were released. Now more information has leaked out. In addition to the price, the first functions of the wearable are now also known. The device should be on the market by the end of October at the latest.
While the render images were posted by Evan Blass (Evleaks), the details about the price and the functions come from the new Leaker Snoopy. A marketing video about the Fitbit Charge 5 was shared in a tweet. The fitness tracker is said to cost $179 and has GPS tracking. In addition, the wearable should enable monitoring of the heart rate and recognize EDA reactions on the skin and thus stress. The ‘Daily Readiness Score’ is a premium feature.
This is a value based on the individual behavior of the Fitbit owner. In addition to sporting activities, sleep and the measured heart rate also play a role in the calculation.

Fitbit Charge 5 buyers have the option to connect the wearable to their smartphone and access the Health Metrics Dashboard. All activities and measurements are displayed here so that users can find out about their current fitness status at any time.
Release expected on October 23
A reference to the release date can be found on the pictures of the future fitness tracker. The display shows October 23, which suggests a release in two months. Of course, the notice is no guarantee that the wearable will actually be offered from October 23rd. It is conceivable that Fitbit will introduce the device at an earlier point in time. There is no official statement yet.
