The company announced the Fitbit device Surge, which we wrote about a few days ago. And with it was announced two more new items: Charge and Charge HR.
Charge Devices line are, in fact, not even a fitness trackers, but only so-called pedometers. New items are practically no different from the previous model Force. They are equipped with a small display, which can be displayed, data on your walks and number of the incoming call.
In addition to keeping track of your steps (including stairs), bracelets are able to follow the phases of sleep. Differences between the models lies in the presence in the version of the scanner HR heart rate. For this reason, a model HR is powered by a full charge of 5 days, whereas the usual Charge 7 days. The cost is $ 130 bracelets and $ 150.
But Fitbit Surge able to somewhat more. The company calls the device “fitness super watch”. Novelty is equipped with a small monochrome touch screen diagonal of 1.26 inches. As model Charge HR, Surge constantly monitors the pulse of the owner. Of the distinguishing features is worth noting the presence of the module GPS, as well as protection from water, which deprived the younger unit.
Surge can display information about incoming calls and text messages, allows you to manage music and can act as an alarm clock. The battery should be enough for 5 days of battery life. When you activate the GPS-tracker, charging will have to look after 5 hours.
The top of the new product will cost $ 250. By the way, Surge and Charge HR arrive on the shelves until early next year. Each bracelet is available in three versions, differing in length of the strap.
