Fitbit Charge 5 Fitness Tracker

In August, the Google-owned Fitbit introduced a new fitness tracker called Fitbit Charge 5. This new fitness tracker is compatible with both iOS and Android mobile devices. Fitbit Charge 5 benefits with a seven-day battery life and built-in GPS to track your workouts without carrying your phone. It also comes with an ECG app that can be used to take ECG readings, an EDA Scan app that can be used to measure your skin conductance, can calculate a daily Readiness score that tells you how well-rested and ready you are to work, and has several stress management tools, such as guided breathing sessions and relaxation exercises.

The Fitbit Charge 5 has various workout features, including pace and distance tracking, which is useful when running on a gym treadmill. This slim smartwatch also has built-in exercise modes and automatically starts recording when exercise is detected. The Fitbit Charge 5 is water resistant to 50 meters and has a swimming mode to track your exercise in the ocean or a gym pool.
