During 2020, a record-high 40% of adults said they experienced a lot of stress. To help you better manage stress, Charge 5 is Fitbit’s first tracker to include an EDA sensor, which measures your body’s response to stress through tiny changes in the sweat glands on your fingers. Fitbit first launched EDA last fall with Fitbit Sense and has found 70% of users reduced their heart rate during a two-minute EDA Scan session, showing these tools can help reduce stress.2
Deep dive into your holistic health
Charge 5 tracks your heart rate 24/7 and provides notifications when you are above or below your personal ranges, and while many factors can affect your heart rate, a high or low heart rate may be an indication of a heart condition that requires medical attention. In addition to managing your heart health, Charge 5 provides a holistic view of other key wellness metrics via the Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app, including breathing rate, skin temperature variation, and SpO2. With Premium, you can also track long-term trends and personal ranges. And because sleep is also critical to your wellbeing, you’ll continue to receive industry-leading sleep tools like daily Sleep Score, Sleep Stages, and SmartWake alarms. Premium members also receive a deeper analysis and guidance to improve sleep quality.
