What it can do for you:

  1. Enhanced Heart Rate Monitoring: The Fitbit Charge 6 takes heart rate tracking to a new level. With the aid of an improved machine learning algorithm borrowed from the Pixel Watch, its accuracy is unparalleled among Fitbit trackers. Notably, during high-intensity activities such as HIIT, spinning, and rowing, heart rate tracking is up to 60% more accurate than its predecessor. This enhancement provides users with more accurate readings for calorie counting, active zone minutes, and daily readiness and sleep scores. An EKG app also aids in atrial fibrillation assessments.
  2. Connectivity with Fitness Equipment: Users can connect the Charge 6 to popular fitness apps and compatible exercise equipment via Bluetooth, offering real-time heart rate monitoring.
  3. Detailed Sports and Fitness Monitoring: The Charge 6 supports tracking for over 40 sports and workout regimes, including 20 new activities such as HIIT, strength training, and snowboarding. Its built-in GPS ensures outdoor workouts are accurately tracked even if the paired phone is left behind.
  4. Musical Motivation with YouTube Music: Those with a YouTube Music Premium subscription can access YouTube Music directly from their Charge 6, receiving music recommendations based on their workouts.
  5. Integration with Essential Apps: The Charge 6 stands out as the first Fitbit fitness band that incorporates Google Maps and Google Wallet. This feature facilitates contactless payments and step-by-step directions right from the wrist. A new zoom-in function allows for easier text reading on the device.
  6. Advanced Health and Well-being Features: The device tracks oxygen saturation (SpO2), heart rate variability, respiratory rate, sleep quality, and stress levels. Its electrodermal activity (EDA) scanning assesses the body’s physical responses, offering insights for stress management.

With a complimentary six-month Fitbit Premium subscription, users gain access to thousands of workout and mindfulness sessions via the Fitbit app. The daily readiness score, a premium feature, provides guidance on workout intensity or when it’s time for a rest day.
