Fitbit Charge, Charge HR and Surge do heart rate and much more

Culture
[MUSIC] Continuous heart rate tracking, and a completely redesigned app. I'm Scott Stein, and you may have been wondering where Fitbit has been. Well, three new trackers may help explain that. Two of them have continuous heart rate tracking. The Fitbit Charge HR and Fitbit Surge both engage in 24-hour heart rate tracking to calculate your resting heart rate, and also to be used during workouts and general activity, to find out what your target heart rate zones are, and get you there better. Fitbit's app has also been completely redesigned to incorporate this heart rate measurement technology, in addition to step counting. Now, you may wonder what happened to the Fitbit Force. Well, the Fitbit Charge, which is coming out this November, is a replacement to that. It looks a lot like the Force, is a little bit wider, is made of different materials. And still does basic step counting and also shows information like elevation, and calories burned. It will also get caller ID, a feature that was supposed to be on the Fitbit Force in the first place. Now the Fitbit Charge HR looks almost exactly like the Charge. It costs $20 more at $150, and you probably want that one. But it's, coming out early 2015. SO is the FibBit Surge, which is a $250 fitness minded GPS watch that will be able to get smart watch notifications like text and phone call, but also be able to calculator your various activities, track your runs, and you can use it all with the passive touch screen or buttons. In a more watch-like mode. Would you want to pay 250 dollars for that? There is a lot of competition for that including the Basis Peak and don't forget the Apple's watch and others coming out next year. So Fitbit will have its competition cut out for it. But this certainly shows some promise and the idea of continuous heart rate tracking is pretty interesting. I'm Scott Stine with the look at Fitbit's three new products. Coming soon. [MUSIC]
