Why choose the Fitbit Charge 6

Fitbit Charge 6 is the latest in the evolution of the Fitbit series and offers a multitude of feature enhancements to improve how you exercise.

Track your exercise

The most accurate HR tracker ever, the Fitbit Charge 6 features over 40 exercise models, twice as many as the previous model, can monitor your heart rate during vigorous types of exercise, including HIIT workouts, rowing, and spin classes. The enhanced precision can assist you in aligning your goals with your exercise ambitions and staying informed about steps, distance, and calories. Additionally, you can track various health metrics, such as blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), heart rate variability, breathing rate, and more.

Personalise workouts

Charge 6 can be connected via Bluetooth to a variety of compatible exercise machines such as treadmills, exercise bikes, rowers and more so heart-rates can be monitored in real-time. You can also discover when you are in fat burn, cardio or peak zones to tailor your exercise.

Get motivated with more music

Do you have a favourite playlist or artist to listen to maintain your motivation when in the gym or out running? Users can sync their workouts with the huge catalogue of tracks offered by YouTube music, meaning you can select your own soundtrack to keep you going when the going gets tough.

Keep on top of your stress

If you’ve had a bad day at work or a poor night’s sleep, then these factors can hamper your performance. By monitoring stress, sleep and activity, the Daily Readiness Score* can provide recommendations on what your body is capable of. This can ensure you don’t over do it or know when the time is right for you to hit the treadmill as hard as you can.

Pairs with other useful Google features

The Charge 6 is compatible with Android and iOS and can be paired with Google Maps which helps runners when navigating new courses or unfamiliar territory. It also allows users to utilise Google Wallet** so they can tap, pay and go without the inconvenience of carrying cash or a credit card.

Keep exercising for longer

The seven-day battery life can keep monitoring performance for longer without the need for regular charging. Please note, this is dependent on what features and functions are used.

Water resistant

Whether it’s through swimming or sweating during strenuous exercise, water resistance up to 50 metres can be invaluable in assisting you to monitor your performance and stay focused on your exercise goals.

Stay connected

Just because you are exercising doesn’t mean you are unreachable. Instead, the Charge 6 enables you to receive notifications for calls, texts and smartphone apps like Google Calendar, Gmail and WhatsApp.
