The company changed a lot in the construction of the device, and additionally put a lot of new things inside. All this to better care for the health of users who live under increasing stress. So what does the new Fitbit Charge 5 bring?
The premiere of Fitbit Charge 5
Before we get into the features of the new Fitbit tracker, there are a few things worth mentioning. The first is that some functions known from the company’s devices, will soon appear on smartwatches from Google Wear. This is, of course, the result of the fact that Fitbit already belongs to Google, so the giant from Mouintain View intends to use it. Such cooperation may bring some interesting things, but we will have to wait for its details. Especially that the new version of the system from Google is still being developed and in fact it will only be available on Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch 4 Classic.
Another curiosity brought by the premiere of Fitbit Charge 5 is what can already be seen on the web, namely Will Smith. The actor gave up practicing a while ago and generally did not look like Hollywood actors. Now Will Smith, together with Fitbit, is to return to his form and at the same time encourage fans and users of the equipment to exercise with him. Quite an interesting idea for a marketing campaign that can actually bring a lot of interest in the subject of the dispute. The actor is supposed to take up all kinds of challenges (e.g. 10,000 steps a day, etc.), so it can be interesting.
