In any case, the image material published by WinFuture looks as if it came from a marketing department. The following tweet by editor Roland Quandt contains an informative video on Fitbit Charge 4.
Fitbit Charge 4 with GPS
The most important new feature is a GPS module, which in addition to the standard model also distinguishes the Fitbit Charge 4 SE. In fact, that would be a welcome change. Because a GPS module makes fitness trackers more independent of smartphones. That means, for example: You can record your running routes precisely even if you don’t have your mobile phone with you. The battery life with activated GPS should be five hours. The Fitbit Charge 4 can last a maximum of seven days without charging and keep an eye on your heart rate around the clock. The device is waterproof to a depth of 50 meters (IPX8). It also supports – as suspected – NFC and contactless payment via Fitbit Pay.
Fitbit Charge 4 (SE): prices
The price for the Fitbit Charge is 149 euros, the technically identical SE model costs 169 euros. The only difference between the two variants is apparently that the more expensive two instead of four bracelets are included. With the current models, on the other hand, there is a good reason to choose the SE version: only this offers NFC support. The release date of the Fitbit Charge 4 is unfortunately not shown in the report.
