Fitbit Charge 5 Review | Trusted Reviews


The Fitbit Charge 5 makes an big upgrade by adding a colour screen – something Fitbit should have brought to the Charge a long time ago.

Vibrant colour display ; Comfortable strap ; Added ECG sensor

Screen responsiveness a little temperamental ; ECG and Daily Readiness Scores not available (yet) ; GPS accuracy not great

Fitbit Charge 5 review: handy AMOLED fitness tracker with ECG and stress tracking


The feature-rich Fitbit Charge 5 dazzles with its AMOLED screen but might be too expensive for most

AMOLED screen is pretty ; 6-month Fitbit Premium subscription included in the price ; Excellent sleep tracking capabilities ; Comfortable to wear ; Daily Readiness Score is a good addition

HR tracking/GPS issues ; Expensive

The Fitbit Charge 5 is not a cheap fitness tracker but for the price, you get a fitness wearable that can track ECG and stress, tells you your Daily Readiness Score, counts Active Zone Minutes and has a beautiful (albeit a bit small) AMOLED screen.

FitBit Charge 5 Review


FitBit is back with an updated version of its ubiquitous fitness tracker. Does it still offer enough features to be considered as one of the best in the business?

— Vibrant display, and plenty of fitness and health features for a tracker

— Some promised features still missing

The FitBit Charge 5 packs in just enough upgrades to give it an ideal level of versatility as a fitness and health aid. There’s still room for improvement, notably to features that were promised but not implemented at launch, but it’s still a winner of...

Fitbit Charge 5 review


With the Charge 5, Fitbit is addressing some major gripes with its predecessor and bringing in more features from its smartwatches

Finally gets a screen upgrade ; Comfortable to wear 24/7 ; Easy to use interface ; Solid heart rate monitoring

ECG sensor is not usable (yet) ; Daily Readiness Scores not live yet ; Data insights locked behind Fitbit Premium ; Iffy sports tracking accuracy

When the Charge 5 gets its most exciting health features turned on, it’ll be a tracker with big appeal for anyone that wants to pay closer attention to their health beyond tracking steps and runs

Fitbit Charge 5 smartband


The Charge 5 brings a whole lot of features to the smartband space. Is it worth the R4 000 asking price?

A range of extras including ECG and EDA, Decent stainless steel design, OLED display better for outdoors, Decent battery life of 6/7 days

Could still do with a few user experience improvements, Premium subscription needed for certain functions, Display could be bigger, Fitness experience can improve
