Fitbit Charge 5 review: The best Fitbit you can buy

 

The Fitbit Charge 5 takes the best parts of Fitbit's recent smartwatches and packs them into a smaller size for a lot less money.

Bright color screen is easy to read ; High and low heart-rate alerts ; Strong sleep tracking ; Built-in GPS

Daily Readiness Score and ECG not available yet ; No altimeter for elevation tracking ; No music playback control

Fitbit Charge 5 Review

 

Color touch screen with always-on display option ; Attractive design with metal case ; Automatically tracks certain activities ; Excellent companion mobile app ; Robust stress management and sleep tracking features ; Tracks overnight HRV, breathing...

No Spotify support ; Limited exercise shortcut list ; Clock faces aren't customizable

With an always-on color touch screen, a sleeker design, and new health tracking features, the Charge 5 is a significant upgrade over the previous model and Fitbit's best fitness tracker yet.

Fitbit Charge 5 review

 

A review of the Fitbit Charge 5 - Fitbit's new fitness tracker.

Bright, always-on display ; Fast connecting GPS ; Addition of an ECG monitor

Lack of buttons on the Fitbit makes usability frustrating ; No Spotify compatibility

, which is far more user-friendly on the run and still allows you to track multiple sports zones and your sleep, see suggested workouts and get accurate recovery data.

Fitbit's Most Advanced Fitness Tracker Is Pretty Underwhelming

 

With a mish-mash of features, some that aren't even ready for primetime yet, Fitbit's Charge 5 might not be worth the upgrade—yet.

The display. Sleeker design. Addition of EDA and ECG sensors. Improved activity-tracking accuracy from the Charge 4.

Battery life with always-on display is dismal for a Fitbit. Yet another proprietary charger. ECG and Daily Readiness Score not ready.

Fitbit Charge 5 review: Supercharged fitness tracker

 

This tracker brings some of the best features across the Fitbit portfolio into one package, making it a very appealing choice.

Lovely OLED display ; Solid performance ; Built-in GPS ; Good battery life ; Fitbit app is excellent ; Comfortable to wear ; Great heart-rate monitoring and sleep tracking

No music control ; Exercise options could be expanded ; Display could be bigger ; Some features not available at launch

Not the cheapest fitness tracker available, but it's definitely Fitbit's best - offering a fantastic blend of features, design, battery life and price.

Fitbit Charge 5 review

 

Fitbit's flagship tracker finally goes full-colour

Finally gets a screen upgrade ; Comfortable to wear 24/7 ; Easy to use interface ; Solid heart rate monitoring

ECG sensor is not usable (yet) ; Daily Readiness Scores not live yet ; Data insights locked behind Fitbit Premium ; Iffy sports tracking accuracy

When the Charge 5 gets its most exciting health features turned on, it’ll be a tracker with big appeal for anyone that wants to pay closer attention to their health beyond tracking steps and runs
