Fitbit Unveils New Versions of Its Charge & Flex Trackers

The best-selling wearables get larger displays, 50 meter water-resistance and more.

Fitbit’s two best-selling wearables are getting an upgrade, the company announced today, in the form of brand new trackers — aptly dubbed the Charge 2 and Flex 2. While the brand new Charge 2 adds a larger screen to the original and brings over the likes of the Charge HR’s heart rate tracking, the slim Flex 2 boasts water-resistance up to 50 meters — thus making good on a promise that the Jawbone UP3 made and failed to keep — while LED lights readily display alerts and daily progress. Both deigns are also modular, meaning wearers can pop out the trackers from the bands themselves and use them in Fitbit’s more upscale, jewelry-like bangles and bracelets.


The Charge 2 hits retailers this September for $150 USD while the Flex 2 is set to follow in October for just $100 USD. Both bands can be pre-ordered now via Fitbit’s website.
