In 2016, Fitbit announced the Fitbit Charge 2 which was the company’s latest fitness tracker for those who wanted to track their activity, but didn’t really see the need to get a smartwatch. Now it looks like Fitbit could be preparing a successor to the Charge 2 because according to Nieuwemobiel.nl, renders of the upcoming device have been leaked.
The Fitbit Charge 3 is said to be announced at IFA 2018 which will be taking place later this month, so we probably won’t have to wait too long to find out if these renders are the real deal. From what we can tell, for the most part the design of the Charge 3 doesn’t differ too greatly from its predecessor.
There are some design changes, of course, such as what appears to be the removal of the button on the side. Presumably Fitbit might have gone with a soft key or virtual buttons. There also seems to be more band options for users to choose from, but other than that at a glance it seems to be similar to what the Charge 2 offered in terms of design.
It is unclear what kind of changes there will be to the features, but presumably there will be. We’re hoping perhaps more accurate tracking, further improvements made to the battery, a better display, and so on. Either way we should find out more come IFA 2018 so do check back with us then for the details.
