The Charge 2 was splash-proof, which meant it could ward off sweat and rain, but wasn’t built for a swim. Well, the Charge 3 changes all of that: it has proper water resistance for up to 50m, letting you dive in and track your aquatic exercise with ease. You can also keep it on in the shower.
Of course, the Charge 3 is designed as a fitness wearable, so that’s just the start of its tracking talents. It can automatically recognise exercises like runs, swims, and elliptical training, plus it provides goals and real-time stats for more than 15 exercises.
The Charge 3 doesn’t have its own GPS, but you can pair it with your phone’s GPS to get pace and distance on the screen when you’re outdoors. It’ll also give you Apple Watch-like nudges to get up and move every once in a while, or do some guided breathing here and there.
