Fitbit Charge Unboxing

The new Fitbit Charge has hit the streets and is ready for action. It was announced along with the Charge HR and Surge, both of which will be available for purchase in a few more weeks. The Charge is essentially a revamped Fitbit Force, so anyone that had (or still has) one should be very familiar with the Charge. We'll give it a full review soon after we play with it for a bit — but for now — let's unbox it!

The Charge brings along the standard Fitbit features like step counts, calories burned, steps climbed, and active minutes. It also grabs some data while you're sleeping, so you can scope out your total sleep time, times awakened, and even set a vibrating alarm to wake you up.

You can view all of your stats on the built-in OLED screen right on the device, or you can check things out in the companion app on your smartphone. The Charge even has caller ID so you'll be able to see who is calling you when your device is connected to your phone.

Hit the video and check out our unboxing — and stay tuned for more on the Charge as we put it to the test!
