The Fitbit Charge 2 has gone from patent to product photos to public announcement, which confirms that the leaks we received about the product were right on the money all along. Now that the device is out, however, the question is, as always, comes down to price on one hand and availability on the other. Fortunately, Fitbit is wasting little time getting the new wrist wearable out and about for consumers who don't want to wait for weeks on end. A new report says that Fitbit has released the Fitbit Charge 2 for North America, Hong Kong, China, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, and Europe. As of next month, Fitbit looks to bring the Charge 2 to South Korea, Japan, and Latin America. The Charge 2 allows users to substitute bands, and Fitbit says that its accessory bands will be available for purchase as of next month (October).
For those who are having to wait for the Fitbit Charge 2, do not despair: the company is working on a Special Edition Series featuring fitness trackers made of 22-karat rose gold and matte-black gunmetal. These two new fitness trackers with premium build materials will be available in December for $179.95. For those who just want a basic accessory band for their Charge 2 can expect to pay anywhere between $29.95 and $69.95.
