Fitbit Charge 3 comes with so many yummy strap options

It also has a 7-day battery life!

Published

The best trackers are the ones that are always on your wrist and running. Though there are a number of impressive ones in the market, so few of them perform in terms of battery time.

Fitbit’s newest health wearable, announced just last August, promises to remedy that. The Fitbit Charge 3 boasts a battery that will last you seven days.

This sleek little thing features an improved touchscreen display that’s made of aluminum and Gorilla Glass, plus an inductive side button (yep, no physical buttons on this baby!). The Charge 3 comes in two colors: Black with a graphite tracker or Blue-gray with a rose-gold tracker. But, if you don’t like those colors, there are a number of strap options available:

For those who want a less sporty look, there are leather strap options, too.

These woven straps, similar to the Fitbit Versa straps, are also looking pretty good.

Aside from looking nice with the benefit of having a slew of straps available for this wearable, the Charge 3 can do a whole lot of things. This fitness band connects to the Fitbit app and tracks your pace and distance in real time, allows for continuous heart rate tracking, and even records sleep.

There’s even automatic exercise recognition which means you don’t have to manually input activities like running, swimming, or certain sports. It has Fitbit Pay, and it’s the first fitness tracker that has smartphone notifications and quick reply for Android.

The Fitbit Charge 3 retails starting at US$ 150 for the basic version and US$ 170 for the special edition NFC- and Fitbit Pay-enabled one. It’s also available in the Philippines for PhP 9,990 and PhP 10,990, respectively. The different bands retail for US$ 30 to US$ 50 or PhP 1,690 to PhP 2,990.
