- A new leak gives us our first look at Fitbit's next fitness tracker.
- The device is codenamed "Morgan" and is expected to be a follow-up to the Charge 4.
- It is tipped to come with a color screen and support for NFC payments.
If a new leak is to be believed, the Fitbit Charge 5 will be a significant upgrade over the Charge 4, which is one of the best fitness trackers on the market. The folks over at 9to5Google have accessed a render of an upcoming Fitbit tracker codenamed "Morgan," believed to be the Fitbit Charge 4 successor.
The render reveals the upcoming tracker will look a lot like the Fitbit Luxe. Like the Luxe, "Morgan" will have a color screen with rounded corners and relatively thick bezels. It also looks like the fitness tracker will not have any physical buttons.
Although the exact size is yet to be revealed, the renders suggest the wearable will have a much bigger screen than the Fitbit Charge 4. The larger display will enable additional functionality such as a weather app, Spotify control, a calendar client, and "richer notifications." It will reportedly include support for NFC payments and an oxygen saturation (SpO2) sensor as well.
There's no word on when Fitbit could announce "Morgan," but it could arrive sometime before the end of the third quarter. Last year, Fitbit announced the Versa 3 and Sense smartwatches in August. It is also unclear if the fitness tracker will be marketed as the Fitbit Charge 5 or if the company plans to introduce an all-new series with "Morgan."
