Not long ago details about a Fitbit “Morgan” tracker came to light, which included a render of the wearable, with some speculation that this was a first look at the Fitbit Charge 5. New marketing renders shared by leaker Evan Blass have confirmed this to be the case, with the noted tipster posting numerous shots of the Fitbit Charge 5 sporting three different colors.
The Fitbit Charge 5 in the leaked renders naturally comes in all black while there is also a choice between blue with a silver case and pink with a gold case. While no Fitbit Charge 5 specifications are listed, it’s clear to see the most obvious change from the predecessor Fitbit Charge 4. The 2020 activity tracker has a monochrome OLED panel whereas the likely 2021 successor has a color upgrade.
The color display in the images below shows the clock and heart-rate tracker, and it also reveals what could be the Fitbit Charge 5 release date: October 23. The Fitbit Charge 4 was released in March 2020 with the Fitbit Charge 3 being launched in October 2018, so an October 2021 release date for the Fitbit Charge 5 does follow. Expected features include GPS, NFC support, and oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring.
