Fitbit Charge 4 regular and special edition variants leaked in retail listing

Last year, Google offered to buy Fitbit in a whopping $2.1 billion all-cash deal. While that acquisition is still not set in stone, Fitbit seems to be charging ahead with its first wearable launch of the year. Thanks to some sleuthing done by folks over at 9to5Google, we are almost certain that new Fitbit fitness trackers are on their way.

UK-based accessories store MobileFun has listed two models of a device called the Fitbit Charge 4 on its platform. It has also separately listed two silicone strap options for the new tracker. The listings details all the features of the alleged Charge 4 as well as pricing for its different variants.

Interestingly, the new fitness band has also appeared in an FCC listing with the same model number as the one mentioned in the retail listing. This tells us that the company might be on the verge of launching the new Charge 4 trackers.

Fitbit Charge 4 specs and pricing

The two models listed on MobileFun include a vanilla Fitbit Charge 4 and a Fitbit Charge 4 Special Edition. The good news is that both versions support NFC for Fitbit Pay this time around. 2018’s Fitbit Charge 3 was also sold in two variants: regular and special edition. However, only the pricier special edition sported NFC for around $20 more.

That said, the standard Fitbit Charge 4 is listed with a price tag of £139.99 (~$160). It is available for pre-order on the website in Black, Rosewood, and Storm Blue/Black colors. Meanwhile, the Fitbit Charge 4 Special Edition is listed at £159.99 (~$183) with a Granite colorway. The optional silicone strap is priced at £29 (~$33) in a Frost White color. Sadly, no product photos are available in any of the listings.

Other features on the new Charge 4 seem pretty consistent with what we saw on the Charge 3, such as a 24/7 pedometer, sleep tracking, IP68 water resistance, and Bluetooth connectivity. Looks like the new trackers will once again miss out on a dedicated GPS, so you’ll still have to carry your phone along on your runs.

Remember, there is still no official word from Fitbit on these new trackers so we can’t really be sure of the information coming from the listings. However, it’s been two years since the Charge series was updated so launching new devices only seems logical.
