Fitbit Tracker is preparing an update to its line of Charge fitness trackers, and newly-leaked images offer our best look at what will likely be the refreshed design. The renders, from leaker Evan Blass, purportedly show the upcoming Charge 5 model.
The new Fitbit tracker looks like it shares design notes with Fitbit recent Luxe tracker, released in April. There’s an organic feel to the tracker, with a curved screen that blends into a more rounded body. Two slim panels on either side of the device look like they will offer capacitive controls, letting users tap and slide to navigate the tracker’s settings.
The other specs are not revealed yet, but they are not expecting any big departures from Charge 4. Expect to see the usual array of heart tracking, sleep tracking, GPS, oxygen saturation monitoring, and the like. Fitbit has partnered with diabetes tracking company LifeScan, offering users the chance to keep tabs on blood sugar trends within the Fitbit app. LifeScan offers cloud-based tracking of glucose levels, which are detected using a prick of the user’s blood and now the two ecosystems will be synced together.
