Google Fitbit Charge 6 Now Available in New Zealand

Charge 6 helps you stay on track with your goals thanks to advanced health sensors that, combined with a new machine learning algorithm, bring you our most accurate heart rate tracking on a Fitbit tracker yet, and the ability to connect to compatible gym equipment and fitness apps to see your real-time heart rate during workouts.


Plus, it’s helpful when you’re on the go with its new haptic side button, seven days of battery life, and the ability to do even more right from your wrist — like control YouTube music and use Google Maps and Wallet. 


Charge 6 debuts the most accurate heart rate on a Fitbit tracker yet, thanks to an improved machine learning algorithm that brings over innovation from the Pixel Watch and has been optimised for a tracker. Heart rate tracking during vigorous activities — like HIIT workouts, spinning and rowing — is up to 60% more accurate than before, giving you added confidence in your health stats. Better heart rate accuracy means even more precise readings for you — from calories and Active Zone Minutes to your Daily Readiness Score and Sleep Score. You can still assess your heart rhythm for atrial fibrillation on-wrist with the ECG app, and get high and low heart rate notifications, keeping your beat in check at all times.


You can connect your Charge 6 to compatible exercise apps and machines to stay motivated at home or at the gym. Quickly and securely connect to compatible exercise equipment with encrypted Bluetooth — from partners like NordicTrack, Peloton and Concept2 — to see your real-time heart rate displayed live during a workout. You can also connect to see your real-time heart rate within popular Android and iOS phone or tablet fitness apps such as Peloton. 


Charge 6 will have Google Maps and Google Wallet on board, making it convenient to go from workouts to errands and everywhere. Navigate on the go using Google Maps to get turn-by-turn directions right on your wrist, or grab a post-workout snack using Google Wallet to make contactless payments. 


Charge 6 also features Accessibility features with Zoom + Magnification. With just a couple of taps anywhere on the screen, you can magnify on-screen words if it’s difficult to read small text or you prefer a larger font. 


You can order the Charge 6 online for NZ$ 289.95 at the Google Store, or major retailers. It comes in three colour options: Obsidian, Porcelain and Coral.
