New sleep and GPS features on Charge 4

· 1 min read

The Fitbit Charge 4 is getting a bunch of new features and we are super psyched! The most prominent is a Smart Wake feature, which will wake you at the optimal time in your sleep cycle that is when you are well-rested, and not at a specific time. So, you will wake up fresh and not groggy due to insufficient sleep.

It’s a feature available on various devices for a long time, for instance Jawbone included it on its devices back in 2014. Fitbit sleep tracking is already commendable, so this is a great way of leveraging it. Dynamic GPS is the other update and it allows you to connect with the GPS in your smartphone phone if it’s in range. The benefit is dual – location accuracy and better battery life. If your phone is not in vicinity, the tracker will use the internal GPS.

The final new feature offers more control over the screen display, you can have it stay illuminated for longer once the Fitbit has been awakened. The update is rolling out now, so if you have a Fitbit Charge 4 you can experience the changes.
