When it comes to wearable fitness trackers, Fitbit has become the most recognizable brand in the market. They’ve slowly evolved their fitness trackers with a diverse range of models, and now they have updated two of their most popular models and introduces the Charge 2 and Flex 2.
The Fitbit Charge 2 now comes standard with PurePulse heart rate tracking, a feature that was previously only available in the HR model. It also keeps track of your cardio fitness level and will guide you through breathing exercises through the Fitbit app. The refreshed design also incorporates a larger screen for more information and better smart notifications. On the design front, it takes a page from its sibling’s book (the Fitbit Alta), and includes interchangeable bands so you can utilize the many accessory bands that Fitbit offers.
The Fitbit Flex 2 is the ultra-slim everyday tracker that also gets an update. It’s the first-ever fitness tracker from Fitbit that can track your swims automatically. The tracker itself is removable, so you can mix and match a variety of bands, bangles, and pendants — a similar approach to the Misfit Ray that attempted to capture the market with its accessory-like high-end design.
Both fitness trackers are available now on Fitbit’s website.
