How will the Charge 3 be different to the Charge 2?

We haven’t had a chance to get our hands on the new device yet, so we’ll update this when we’ve reviewed Fitbit’s latest offering.

Fitbit say the Charge 3 will have a 40 per cent larger screen than the old model, while it’ll also be slimmer and more comfortable on the wrist.

We weren’t the biggest fans of the Charge 2’s fit when we reviewed it, so hopefully the new device will be an easier wear.

One of the biggest upgrades is that the Charge 3 is now completely waterproof to 50m, meaning wearers can track their exercise in the pool if they fancy.


The overall design of the model is relatively similar to the Charge 2 which is no bad thing considering the Charge 2 is one of the better looking trackers from Fitbit.

Other differences include an expanded set of exercise modes and inclusion of Fitbit Pay on the special edition (although we’re not sure that’s worth spending an extra £20 for.)

Where can I buy the Fitbit Charge 3 from?

You can already pre-order the Charge 3 from Fitbit’s official website here.

Once it’s released, it’ll also be available from: Amazon, Argos, Currys PC World and John Lewis, among others.
