Google has just announced their latest health and fitness tracker, the Fitbit Charge 5 with personalized heart rate features, and a built-in GPS. The Fitbit features a stylish and aerodynamic design, and Google claims that this fitness tracker is sleeker than ever before as it is over 10% thinner than the Fitbit 4. One of the main highlights of the Fitbit Charge 5 is the presence of an EDA sensor. This sensor was first seen on the Fitbit Sense, and it measures your body’s response to stress by analyzing tiny changes observed in the sweat glands present in your fingers.
