Fitbit has been deliberate about its devices for the global market. The company filed a trademark patent for its Fitbit Charge 2 back in May, with photos leaking just three months later of the wearable. The Charge 2 was announced with pre-orders beginning shortly after, and finally, after a long wait for Charge users, Fitbit released the Charge 2 to North America (among other markets) a few weeks post-announcement. After a few months, the company has finally decided to bring an update to the Charge 2 that adds features such as Guided Breathing, Workout Pause, Enhanced Do Not Disturb, and more.
First, the new Guided Breathing feature will appear when you're in Relax mode and either look away from the wearable or close your eyes. Workout Pause now allows you to, as the name says, pause your workout by pressing the button to the side of the Charge 2. The same side button used to pause your workout can also pause turn off all notifications when you're at the notifications screen or in Do Not Disturb (DND) mode.
In addition to these welcome changes, the Fitbit Charge 2 update also brings improvements to the heart rate sensor that let you see your heart rate zone in a fitness session as well as the inclusion of a new dedicated battery life screen, new clock face, a one-hour workout recap viewing after your workout is finished, and a "plus" sign to signal you have more than one notification.
Fitbit released the Charge 2 update one week ago, so you should have it by now. If not, head on over to the device settings and prepare to update your Charge 2. Then come back here and let us know that you received the new update and what new feature you're liking so far.
