Fitbit is quickly becoming the Xerox or Kleenex of fitness trackers, but its popularity hasn't come without a few hurdles. With the Fitbit Charge 2, we finally get a device that's polished enough to justify the hype.

After two years in the wilderness -- so to speak -- Fitbit has a replacement for its now-middle-aged Charge and Charge HR fitness trackers. The new Charge 2 adds GPS tracking for your workouts -- although not built into the wristband itself -- and a host of other fitness tracking software features, like a new Cardio Fitness Level metric for you to base your overall fitness on. The hardware has evolved, too, with a bigger screen and removable wrist straps. One of the best fitness trackers you could buy is now even better.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
After two years, Fitbit has reinvented the Charge and the Flex, its two most popular activity and fitness trackers. Australia gets the Charge 2 before anywhere else in the world -- to capitalise on the Father's Day gift-giving frenzy -- and the upgrades it makes are pretty significant.
