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

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

Fitbit Charge 5 review: From basic band to pseudo smartwatch


Fitbit's latest fitness tracker, the Charge 5, is easily the company's best band yet. Have we reached peak fitness band?

Stylish and comfortable new design ; New EDA and ECG sensors ; Google Fast Pair for Android ; Solid battery life ; 6 months of Fitbit Premium included

Not compatible with previous Charge bands or chargers ; Touchscreen can be a bit finicky ; $30 price increase over Charge 4

With advanced health sensors, a bright color touchscreen, and a stylish new design, the Charge 5 is Fitbit's best tracker ever. However, those jumps in performance and price have put this device closer to the realm of smartwatches than basic fitness...

Fitbit Charge 5 review: A great fitness tracker but is it the best?


The Fitbit Charge 5 is a fitness tracker that costs a lot of money. Is it worth the price? Find out in this Fitbit Charge 5 review.

Bright, beautiful full-color OLED display

The Fitbit Charge 5 is an excellent fitness tracker. It has features that most other trackers don’t have, such as an EDA scanner. It has features reserved strictly for premium trackers, such as NFC payments support. It also features a bright,...

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 Charge 5 Review – If you don't need the most premium-looking Fitbit like the Fitbit Versa 3, the Fitbit Charge's tracker line is a great buy. Fitbit Charge 5 is Fitbit's latest and most advanced tracker that can scan your heart health and...

More modern design compared to predecessors ; Brighter, colourful screen with always-on display option ; Comes with sensors for ECG & EDA ; Tracks your hearth health, along with your exercises, goals, sleep qualities, etc ; Built-in GPS ; Good battery...

Some might miss that quick and handy physical button ; Some features are locked under the Premium subscription ; Pricey if you don’t need all those fancy sensors ; Yet another different charger design. Why can’t Fitbit make every device charge the same?

Fitbit’s latest tracker now comes with a brighter, colourful screen and on-wrist ECG for heart health, and EDA for stress management

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 | Trusted Reviews


The Fitbit Charge 5 makes an big upgrade by adding a colour screen – something Fitbit should have brought to the Charge a long time ago.

Vibrant colour display ; Comfortable strap ; Added ECG sensor

Screen responsiveness a little temperamental ; ECG and Daily Readiness Scores not available (yet) ; GPS accuracy not great
