This year’s Black Friday deals have started to arrive, with Amazon Black Friday deals already offering significant discounts ahead of the annual shopping holiday. If you’ve been looking through Black Friday smartwatch deals but nothing’s caught your eye, you might want to consider a device that’s similar — a fitness tracker like the Fitbit Charge 4, which is on sale with a $50 discount to bring its price down to $100 from its original price of $150.
The Fitbit Charge 4 looks clean and simple with its 1-inch monochrome OLED display, with a haptic button at the side of the fitness tracker. The device is water resistant down to 50 meters, allowing it to track swimming as an activity.
In addition to swimming, the Fitbit Charge 4 can track running, biking, treadmill, and many other activities, with the option to assign shortcuts to six activities for easy access. The fitness tracker comes equipped with built-in GPS, so you don’t have to carry your smartphone if you want to track your movement. It can also track your heart rate, sleep, and menstrual cycles, and can help with mental health through the built-in Relax app.
The Fitbit Charge 4 is a fitness tracker, but it integrates features you would expect from a smartwatch such as displaying notifications from your smartphone and enabling mobile payments through Fitbit Pay. Also, unlike most smartwatches that will last only a day or two on a single charge, Fitbit promises up to a whole week for the Charge 4, though that will be affected by how often you activate the device’s GPS features.
While smartwatches offer a wide variety of features, fitness trackers have their own advantages, and they’re not just for gym buffs. The Fitbit Charge 4 stands out among other fitness trackers because of its light and stylish design, long battery life, and incorporation of some smart features. The Fitbit Charge 4 is available for $100 on Amazon, in an early Black Friday deal that slashes $50 off its original price of $150. There’s no telling how long stocks of the fitness tracker will last, so if you want the Fitbit Charge 4 in time for the holidays, you should click the Buy Now button as soon as you can.
