After a long wait, the new Fitbit Charge 5 has finally been officially presented and we already know all its features in detail. After its recent purchase by Google, Fitbit has just launched the renewal of its most advanced smart bracelet, a new model that includes many improvements over the Charge 4.
The main change we see in a new, much more refined and current design, the incorporation of the well-known EDA sensor for stress measurement and even the possibility of performing EKGs in true Apple Watch style.

An obvious redesign with internal news
Without a doubt, the design is one of the most obvious changes in this new generation of Fitbit Charge 5. The monochrome display and raw design that we saw in its previous generation has gone a long way, and it has given way. to a much more premium look. And be careful to be a smaller and lighter bracelet with a 10% reduction in its thickness.
Its body is built in stainless steel and on its sides we find the two new sensors of this fifth generation, the EDA sensor and the electrocardiogram. In addition, on its front side we find a new color AMOLED panel that is also fully tactile, so that the interface of the device has been completely redesigned to resemble the rest of the company’s products.
This panel features the well-known Always On Display mode to keep it always on, has an automatic light sensor built in and we can even swap your watch faces right from the Fitbit app.
Another interesting detail to comment on is the battery section, where we find an autonomy of up to seven days (always taking into account the use we make of it), in addition to being fully compatible with Google Fast Pair for faster pairing speed. , of course, we can receive notifications from our smartphone, being able to respond to them with quick responses predefined by the system itself.
Finally, if we talk about the sensors built into the device, one of those that are not at all common in smartbands is the GPS chip, something that will be very useful in monitoring our sports activities with greater precision.
It integrates up to 20 different exercises with the possibility of optimizing our training with the minutes of the active zone and, as a novelty, it launches the Daily Readiness function, a system that uses various parameters to understand the fatigue present in our body.
In addition, we will also have other sensors available such as the EDA sensor for stress measurement, the skin temperature sensor, heart rate, oxygen in the blood and even the aforementioned EKG machine.
