Fitbit Charge 3 updated with Quick Replies for Android users

The Fitbit Charge 3 is the best fitness band Fitbit's ever released, and thanks to a new software update that's available for the tracker right now, it's being made even better.

One of the biggest new features is specific to Android users and allows you to send off Quick Replies to text messages, WhatsApp messages, and more right from your wrist. Similar to the Fitbit Ionic and Versa, you can create custom messages in the Fitbit app and then use these as replies from the Charge 3. Similarly, all users can now accept and reject phone calls.

Moving over to fitness-related features, there are now weight, hydration, and exercise tiles on the Fitbit Today dashboard along with all of your other health info, and when you meet your main goal for the day, you'll see a new fireworks celebration animation.

In addition to all of this, the Fitbit Charge 3 Special Edition is also available for purchase. The Special Edition has all of the same features as the regular Charge 3 but also comes with NFC for Fitbit Pay and an exclusive band for $20 more.

  • The Pebble Time was having that functionality over three years ago................................. And I sill use it regularly.
  • Same here.
  • Just replaced my dead Sony Smartband with this. So far so good I guess.
  • Have they updated the clock faces to highlight date/day yet? That oversight was very much a lol/fubar moment.
