Our new Active Zone Minutes feature helps you get your recommended daily dose of heart pumping activity, whether you’re working out indoors or outdoors.

Plus, Charge 4 offers a plethora of features, both new and improved, that you’re sure to love. Those include sleep tracking, Spotify – Connect & Control, 20+ goal-based exercise modes, and more. You asked and Fitbit delivered! Read on to discover everything we’re excited about. 

What’s New?

Active Zone Minutes. Get your heart pumping with Active Zone Minutes, a new personalized feature that uses your heart rate to measure the intensity of your activity, helping you get the most out of every workout. Learn more about AZM here. Available now on Charge 4, and coming soon on Versa 2, Versa, Versa Lite, and Ionic.

Built-in GPS for pace and distance. Use the new built-in GPS feature during runs, hikes, rides, and more to see pace and distance on-wrist—all without your phone. Track anything from your walk around the neighborhood to your paddleboarding route, and see a map of your route afterward in the Fitbit app. 

Workout intensity map. So what exactly is Fitbit’s new in-app workout intensity map? Simply put, after you do a GPS-enabled exercise (like a run, walk, or bike ride) you now see new data on top of your route map, with the option to select either heart rate zones or pace. If you select heart zones, it’ll show you HR zones shaded throughout your route. More curious about pace per mile? You can opt to view that instead.  

20+ goal-based exercise modes. Add exercise shortcuts to your wrist like run, hike, bike, and more to quickly track your workout. Guess what else? You can now use our new outdoor exercise mode for a variety of activities, such as kayaking and cross-country skiing. And, it is GPS-enabled, so you’ll get a map of your workout afterward in the Fitbit app. 

Insights to Know Your Body Better

Sleep Score, plus time in light, deep, and REM stages. There’s more to a good night’s sleep than just clocking in the requisite 8 hours of shuteye. Sleep Score combines multiple factors, looking at your sleeping heart rate data, time asleep, and restlessness throughout the night, every night you wear your Charge 4 (and any Fitbit device with Sleep Score) to bed. 

This gives you a quick, easy way to see how well you’re sleeping, watch your trends over time, and keep yourself accountable to your sleeping goals. (Find out more about Fitbit’s advanced sleep tools here.)
