Fitbit Charge 4 Review Philippines: Final Thoughts


  • Great design with no price increase from Fitbit Charge 3
  • Faster and accurate GPS
  • Tracking of Heart Rate


  • No updates in Design
  • Display (Monochrome)
  • No Inbuilt Music

The Fitbit Charge 4 is really an improved version of its predecessor, the built-in GPS feature is an excellent addition. The Monochrome Screen isn’t a drawback in general use. But it does make the watch face less attractive than we would have liked.

The interface is superb, and you get used to it, which provides enough information at once without making the screen cluttered. The app is also very useful, even though you’ll have to pay for Fitbit Premium to get the best out of it, but you can also try the free trial before investing in the Premium services. Whether you are using it for the first time, or you are an amateur athlete, the Fitbit Charge 4 functionality guides you to improve your everyday habits.
