The wearable device maker FitBit seems to be all geared up to launch the sequels to its existing fitness bands - Fitbit Flex and Fitbit Charge.
While there is no clear information on the exact launch date, a slew of leaked images suggests a late November launch date. From the leaked images, we can say that the Fitbit Charge 2 might arrive with a larger screen than the existing model that has a small OLED screen.
The Fitbit Flex 2 appears to retain the status created by its predecessor. It might be priced a bit lower than the Fitbit Charge 2 and it could be the first one to feature a waterproof build. Do have a look at the leaked Fitbit renders from here.
Fitbit Charge 2 to have a bigger screen
The Fitbit Charge 2 is rumored to arrive with a larger screen than the original Fitbit Charge as mentioned above. It is speculated that the display will be too big that it will be akin to what is seen in the Gear Fit from Samsung.
Charge 2 to feature the PurePulse tech
The rumors claim that the Fitbit Charge 2 will arrive with an improved heart rate sensor than the one on its predecessor. It is also likely to come with the PurePulse technology that the Fitbit HR featured and interchangeable wristbands.
Fitbit Charge 2 features to expect
The Fitbit Charge 2 is claimed to list out the smartphone notifications, track multiple sport performances, and more.
Fitbit Flex 2 to be waterproof
The Fitbit devices that were launched earlier have mostly been resistant to water and dust, but the first one from the company to be fully waterproof could be the Fitbit Flex 2. We say this as the company refers to the fitness band as swim proof.
November 27 launch pegged
While there is no specific launch date on when we can expect the Fitbit Charge 2 and Flex 2 fitness bands will be launched, we can expect a November 27 launch as the date is seen on the screen of the Charge 2.
Price and other details remain unknown
As of now, there is no detail on the battery life and pricing of the upcoming Fitbit wearables. If these get launched on November 27, we can get the details beforehand.
