Fitbit’s fitness trackers have adopted a pretty distinctive design where upon seeing it, you can more or less tell it’s a Fitbit device. However, as with most designs, things need to change over time and be improved upon and be refreshed if it hopes to generate renewed interest, and that’s what Fitbit might have done.
In a series of leaked renders shared on Twitter by Evan Blass, it looks like Fitbit has a new fitness tracker in the works in the form of the Fitbit Charge 5. This will be the successor to the Charge 4, and if the renders are accurate, Fitbit will be adopting a different design with more gentle curves.

With the Fitbit Charge 4, the device was rather edgy and used flat and sharp edges, which is fine, but the renders reveal that the Charge 5 be heading in a different and more “organic” looking direction. We expect that functionality should more or less remain the same, maybe with some improvements here and there.
Fitbit hasn’t officially announced the Charge 5 just yet, but the company’s CEO did state during Google I/O that they are working on a new model, but other than that, not much else is known about it.
