Google is pushing a bevy of new features to several Fitbit smartwatches and trackers as part of its June 2023 Pixel feature drop, marking the first time this line of fitness wearables gets in on the action that's usually reserved for Pixel-branded devices.
First up is an exciting update for the Fitbit Charge 5, Luxe, and Inspire 3. These models now have four new clockfaces that you can choose from in the Fitbit gallery app. The Luxe and Inspire 3 are also getting a previously Charge 5-exclusive watch face, Google said in a blog post.
In addition to these new clock faces, the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4 now let you change your watch face with a long press on the home screen. All exercise modes are also now visible on the Charge 5, Luxe, and Inspire 3 under the Exercise menu. Your most recent workout modes show up at the top, and you don't need to launch the Fitbit mobile app to switch up the list.
You can now view your Daily Readiness score on any Fitbit device without needing to navigate to the Fitbit app. Meanwhile, a new menstrual health tile has made its way to the Sense 2 and Versa 4, allowing you to log periods, view your cycle state, or edit information without reaching for your smartphone.
Fitbit has also rolled out support for global characters and right-to-left reading to the Sense 2 and Versa 4, Charge 5, Luxe, and Inspire 3. This allows you to view and read notifications in more languages, including Hindi, Arabic, Vietnamese, and more.
The Fitbit Charge 5, the newest member of the Fitbit family, combines a slim and sleek tracker design with premium features typically found only in a smartwatch, such as built-in GPS and an ultra-bright display. Furthermore, it is reasonably priced.
