Along with the new running-centric features and some general bug fixes, Fitbit is also adding a new birdie goal celebration and new Clock Faces to choose from. There's also good news for Windows smartphone owners, with notifications now able to be received and viewed on the Charge 3's display.
Unlike Fitbit's smartwatches, the Charge 3 doesn't run on Fitbit OS, but is instead based on something entirely different that takes inspiration from its siblings. So, while you shouldn't expect the ability to download and use apps, Fitbit is trying to offer more of a smartwatch experience on its flagship tracker.
The Charge 3 is the company's most feature-packed fitness tracker adding waterproofing and swim tracking, a significantly more attractive design than previous Charges and contactless payments through Fitbit Pay (on the special edition model only). We scored it a four stars out of five and praised it for its rich fitness tracking support, big battery life and sleep tracking features.
You should know if the latest Charge 3 update is available when you head to the companion app on your phone. If it's not there right now, it should be with you soon.
