This fitness tracker hits now multiple new markets, with more to be added next month, and a Special Edition Series to launch in December.

Fitbit Charge 2 has been around for a while, but now this fitness tracker is finally available for purchase on a global scale. Even more, a Special Edition Series is expected to hit the market just in time for the holiday shopping season, but we will talk about that one once it becomes official.

Fitbit Charge 2 features a vibration motor, altimeter, optical heart rate tracker, as well as one 3-axis accelerometer. It uses Bluetooth LE wireless technology to send smartphone notifications and to sync with more than 200 Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

Fitbit Charge 2 is priced at $149.95 USD, and the bands range from $29.95 USD to $69.95 USD. The retail package contains the tracker, a classic wristband, and a charging cable. Next to North America, the markets that get this smart wearable now are Europe, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and China. Next month, Japan, Latin America, and South Korea should receive it as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
