Investing in a good fitness tracker, such as the Fitbit Charge 3, could boost your daily workout routine and give you important stats on your heart rate, sleep, and more.According to our sister site PCMag.com, the Fitbit Charge 3 is one of the best fitness trackers you can buy at just $149.95. A longer battery life, new sensors, a sharper screen, and more detailed phone notifications make the Fitbit Charge 3 a great pick if you’re looking for an everyday wearable that monitors your wellness and exercise sessions. The Fitbit Charge 3 is available on Amazon and Fitbit’s website.The Fitbit Charge 3 is a slight upgrade from the Fitbit Charge 2: Its monochrome OLED touch screen is much larger, so you won’t struggle to read text messages and other phone notifications that come in on your smartphone. Appearance-wise, it has a more streamlined look that’s not bulky and allows you to interchange straps to dress it up or down.Using the Fitbit Charge 3 is seamless, since the screen’s touch sensitivity is pretty good and provides easy navigation. From the main screen, swipe up to see your daily stats. Swipe left to move around the app menu and swipe down to access notifications. Short presses on the left button take you back to the previous screen, while a longer press enables you to tweak notification and screen settings.Now, for the cool specs: When you’re working out, your most likely not thinking about your heart rate or SpO2 (also known as the peripheral capillary oxygen saturation in elaborate bio terms). The Fitbit Charge 3’s sensors will monitor your heart rate and estimate the amount of oxygen in your blood with an SpO2 sensor.It also logs in your daily steps, so you’ll be able to see how much you’ve walked or ran throughout the day. An important note is that the Fitbit Charge 3 doesn’t do as well with indoor distance tracking, so you might want to keep that in mind for your fitness activities. While you’re on the move, the Fitbit Charge 3 syncs up with the Fitbit app, which will tell you about calories, daily sleep quality, and other wellness stats.To top things off, this wearable device also packs in about seven days worth of battery on a single charge, which is a plus if you’re going to wear it frequently. The one downside is that you’ll have to shell out cash if you need to replace a Fitbit Charger.For more specs on the Fitbit Charge 3, be sure to read the extensive review over on our sister site PCMag.com.
