The Fitbit Charge 4 Special Edition has all of the features of the standard model, but fabric (rather than rubber) granite strap, adding a little additional touch of luxury to the tracker. With $50 off its original price, it's a stylish addition to your workout routine.
The Fitbit Charge 4 first came on to the market last March and was an update on the previous models. The most significant update was that the Charge 4 comes with full GPS built-in, so you can track walks and runs without relying on your phone. It also offers heart rate tracking.
The Fitbit Charge 4 also records activity including when you walk, run or do a workout. Even sleeping is accurately tracked with a nightly sleep score giving you insight into how you're doing at rest.

During lockdown she found her love of running outside again and now attempts to run around 50 miles a month. When it comes to other fitness, she loves a sweaty cardio session – although since she’s been working out from home she’s sure her downstairs neighbors aren’t too happy about it. She also loves to challenge herself - and has signed up to do hiking holidays, intense bootcamps and last year she went on her dream activity holiday: paddle boarding around deserted islands in Croatia. On her rest days, she loves to recover with a simple yoga flow session – the perfect antidote to her active fitness schedule.
