The New ‘Fitbit Charge 4’ Proving To Be Remarkably — & Impressively — Accurate.

Yesterday, after my 1st day with it, I noticed that the step count on the Fitbit Charge 4 was within 1% of those measured on my Garmin Fenix 6.

This was my 5th Fitbit & I have never had one that tracked so close to a Garmin. SMILE.

Wow. I was amazed and impressed.

This morning I did this SHORT GPS comparison. Today was my ‘day-off’. In terms of exercise I have been on a 3-days ON, 1-day OFF routine for ever. It works for I. I get 6-days of exercise a week with 1-day off. I am cool with that. On my day off I do not do my 4+ walk (in the morning) or my 23-minutes on my exercise bike. Hence, this short walk.

The GPS map track is GOOD. Distance is about the same as that on the Garmin. The time difference is explainable. I can’t turn them both on/off at the same time.

I just checked the step counts for the day. 110-step difference between the two at 7,800 steps. That is good. Very good.

I am impressed. Best Fitbit, in terms of accuracy, yet.

Well done, Fitbit.
