Fitbit announces Charge 5 advanced fitness tracker and Daily Readiness Score


In 2020, Fitbit released the Fitbit Sense with the world's first electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor on a smartwatch. The new Fitbit Charge 5 is Fitbit's first tracker to include this EDA sensor to help measure your body's response to stress. Wearables collect an amazing amount of data and while the trends and results are interesting to view, it's not always clear what to do with the data or how to modify our behaviors to improve our overall health and wellness. Soon Fitbit Premium members with a Fitbit Sense, Versa 3, Versa 2, Charge 5, Luxe, or Inspire 2 will have access to Daily Readiness. This score will help guide you on whether or not your body is ready for a workout and how much activity is recommended.

Fitbit Charge 5 review: New look, same tricks


Fitbit went back to basics with last year's Charge 4, reinstating a fitness tracker with onboard GPS into its lineup after many years of leaving that hole unfilled. With the introduction of the $180 Charge 5 this year, the company is trying to modernize its most capable band. It's thinner, lighter and less bulky than the Charge 4 and it now has some features previously reserved for Fitbit's full-fledged smartwatches, the Versa and Sense. That translates to a $30 increase in price, and on top of that, Fitbit's hoping you'll pay $10 each month to access your historical health data (and more) through Fitbit Premium. The Charge 5 certainly feels more polished than the Charge 4, but those who prefer bands to smartwatches will find that most core features remain the same -- and you'll have to decide if the perks of Premium are really worth paying for.
