An image dug up by 9To5Google, possibly extracted from app code, has revealed a new Fitbit tracker device that has the codename “Morgan”. The same source has opined that this could be a first look at the successor to 2020’s Fitbit Charge 4, which unsurprisingly would most likely be called the Fitbit Charge 5. The most obvious difference from the Fitbit Charge 4 here is the presence of a color display.
The tracker market has become a very crowded and competitive space over recent years, and although Fitbit products are noted for their quality and build, they are also more expensive than the cheap and cheerful rivals from Xiaomi and Honor. At the official Fitbit webstore, the Fitbit Charge 4 is priced from US$129.95 while the Fitbit Luxe starts at US$149.95. To justify a similar price tag, the Fitbit Charge 5 will have to offer more than a color screen and sleek and straight-edged design.
Unfortunately, most of the features of this mysterious Fitbit “Morgan” tracker are currently unknown, although 9To5Google does state that NFC support will be available, and it seems likely blood oxygen measurement (SpO2) will also be onboard. As for a release timeframe, the Fitbit Charge 3 was launched in October 2018 and the Fitbit Charge 4 came out in March 2020. If more leaks about the potential Fitbit Charge 5 tracker start appearing soon, including live images and specs, then the device could see the light of day within the next three months.
