Fitbit Charge 5 review: Supercharged fitness tracker

A slim, premium design - with a stainless steel body and no buttons - is a big step-up over the Charge 4 from yesteryear. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The standard silicone strap that comes with the Charge 5 is lovely and soft, making it very comfortable to wear, both day and night. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are 20 exercise shortcuts to choose from, including automatic exercise recognition too. We would like to see yet more, though, as indoor cycling lacks. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's some excellent features, including EDA for stress management, built-in GPS, and an ECG app coming soon (as not everything is there on day one). (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's Fitbit Pay on board, allowing you to pay from your wrist using NFC, if you have a compatible bank and card. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Excellent heart rate tracking, as well as great sleep tracking, puts this Fitbit on par with the Apple Watch Series 6 based on our testing. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Interchangeable straps add to the look, with a simple mechanism to allow you to change them out easily. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Fitbit Charge 5 has a brilliant battery life, with a full week from one charge. It's a fantastic tracker, offering some of the best features available. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
