Fitbit filed patents for the Charge 2 and Flex 2 monikers, which is always a sign that a company intends to bring a product(s) to market. Photos leaked two weeks ago which confirmed Fitbit CEO James Park's statement about bringing new devices to market by the end of 2016. Finally, after all the suspense, Fitbit unveiled the Charge 2 and the Flex 2 a few days ago.
The Fitbit Charge 2 has a display that is four times larger than the previous generation, interchangeable band swappability so that you can match your mood or your outfit, as well as a breathing exercise Relax app and a Cardio Fitness Level app that uses user exercise data to give a score of the wearer's heart performance. The Fitbit Flex 2 is 30% smaller, has a removable tracker that will work with other bands, water-resistant and tracks swimming activities, and comes in an array of colors.
The Fitbit Charge 2 will cost $149, while the Fitbit Flex 2 will set you back $99. Pre-orders start today, Monday, September 5th, and you can dive in today or wait until these new devices hit retail stores this Fall.
