The new Fitbit Charge 4 is now available in SA for R2999
Fitbit this week unveiled its new device, the Fitbit Charge 4 featuring a new feature called Active Zone minutes.
The new Charge 4 is a built-in GPS, which means you can now leave your phone at home when going for a run.
NFC also makes its debut on the Charge, allowing users to complete payments using Fitbit Pay.
The band’s now water-resistant up to 50 metres too, while the traditional Fitbit sleep tracking features are also included on the Charge 4. Spotify support also features.
According to Fitbit, the new added feature Active Zone Minutes uses your personalised heart rate zones to track one's effort for any energizing activity, whether doing a HIIT workout, power yoga or taking a vigorous walk outside.
“Earn credit for each minute of moderate activity in fat burn zone and double the credit for vigorous activity in cardio and peak zones — Active Zone Minutes does the math for you so you can quickly understand how many you need to reach your daily and weekly goals," said Fitbit in a statement.
The Charge 4 will be available in SA once the lockdown is over from R2999.
The company added that there will also be a special edition retailing for R400 more and includes an exclusive granite reflective/black woven band plus a classic black band to easily swap out for workouts or a sportier look.
