The Fitbit Charge 4 is on the way, which we would have assumed anyway, but the fitness tracker’s features and price have been leaked online thanks to one retailer.
Mobile Fun, purveyor of various accessories, happened upon the listing from one of its official suppliers, and proceeded to dump everything on its own site. According to the information it grabbed, the Fitbit Charge 4 will be available in four colourways: Granite, Rosewood, Black, and Storm Blue/Black.
Unlike the Fitbit Charge 3, which offered NFC capabilities as a feature limited to the Special Edition of its wearable only, it looks like the Fitbit Charge 4 will have NFC as standard on all models. The FCC filing lends further credence to the leaked listing, as the part number for the device (FB417) is the same on both the retailer’s and the FCC’s site. The one difference is that the FCC filing includes an IP68 rating.

That being said, there’s still a Special Edition – the Granite model – priced at Â£159.99 ($320). The standard edition has a price tag of Â£139.99 ($280). There are also a number of straps listed alongside the wearables, with the premium leather band strap coming in at Â£69.99 ($140), woven straps for Â£34.99 ($70), and sport straps for Â£29.99 ($60).
If you wake up during the night feeling like you can't breathe, or if you roll out of bed each morning wondering why you slept like shit, you might have sleep apnea. An estimated 22 million American adults have the disorder, and many of them don't know it. A diagnosis usually requires undergoing a supervised sleep study at a clinic, which is an entire ordeal that most people want to avoid. But Fitbit thinks it might soon be able to tell you if you have sleep apnea using data collected on your wrist.Read more
Now that the FCC filing has surfaced, it shouldn’t be too long before we have an official announcement, so with this heads up, you can budget accordingly if you’re looking to upgrade from your Fitbit Charge 3.
