Google has announced the Fitbit Charge 6, a fitness tracker watch with more smartwatch features than ever. It includes smarter features like YouTube Music, Google Maps with built-in GPS, and Google Wallet with NFC, yet costs $160, less than half the cost of a Pixel Watch. The Charge 6 has heart rate tracking that's 60% more accurate than previous Fitbits. It also performs sleep tracking and has a Daily Readiness Score, "a Premium feature that helps you understand your body’s readiness to tackle a tough workout or take a day to recover, with daily activity recommendations based on your score." It can also measure electrodermal activity and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2). The Charge 6 can connect to compatible gym equipment via Bluetooth, so your heart rate can be displayed on machines from NordicTrack, Peloton, Concept2, and Tonal. Pre-orders start today, with delivery this fall.
