Overcame the Mi Band? Fitbit Charge 4 gets update with dynamic GPS, Smart Wake and more

The smart bracelet market is busy in 2020 with the launch of the Mi Band 5 in the global market soon, but before that one of its main competitors is getting an update with several new features. We’re talking about Fitbit Charge 4, which will now feature dynamic GPS, Smart Wake and more customization on the screen timeout.

The update comes with version number 1.96.29 and brings all these interesting news. One of the most interesting is the Smart Wake, which until now was only available for smart watches of the brand and allows you to use the sleep monitoring of the bracelet to wake you up when your sleep is lighter, more precisely in the 30 minutes before the programmed for the alarm sounds. If you do not enter a light sleep mode until the preset time, the alarm sounds normally.

Now it is also possible to customize the time limit for which the screen will remain on, which can vary between 3, 5 or even 8 seconds so that it automatically turns off. If the longer time is selected, a warning about high battery consumption is displayed, after all, the screen is one of the components that most consume energy in these accessories.

Speaking of energy consumption, Charge 4 now also has more settings for GPS in order to avoid excessive battery consumption if you do not use this sensor frequently. In addition, the dynamic GPS mode allows you to use the positioning of your cell phone to ensure greater accuracy if you are carrying it with you.

If you do not have the phone nearby, the wristband automatically activates the GPS built into it.

Finally, the update brings some corrections not specified by Fitbit and internal improvements to the device. If you have not yet received the new version on your Charge 4, the update should arrive soon, since it is still being distributed in waves, so keep it connected to the your phone whenever possible.

Now, answering the title question, the answer is still: no, since the Mi Band 4 has a much superior screen, more customization options, in addition to a battery that lasts longer and all the functions mentioned so far since its launch. So, for now the Xiaomi bracelet is a better choice, even more for the price.
