I Am Sure Garmin Already Has Something Close To The ‘Active Zone Minutes’ Feature In The New Fitbit ‘Charge 4’.

Yes, yes, yes, it is a $149 Fitbit band and NOT a $300 – $800 Garmin Vivoactive, Forerunner or Fenix 6. I appreciate that.

So, Fitbit has added GPS and a VO2 max capability. Those of us who have mid- to high-end Garmin’s take that for granted.

The new feature being promoted with the new Fitbit Charge 4 is this ‘Active Zone Minutes‘.

From what I see this looks pretty similar to, if not the same as, ‘Intensity Minutes‘ on the Garmin.

OK, I will admit & confess. It is not a feature I bother with. At 67 I am more than happy with my fitness. SMILE. So, I have never looked at that. But, I just checked the menu to see what it was called. If it is not the same, Garmin will be able to tweak it, in the next software rollouts, to match Fitbit or even go beyond.

So, I am not sure that this Fitbit is of any interest to us with Garmins. [Yes, my wife wears a Fitbit Versa 2 and loves it. I realized about a year ago that I am a Garmin man and that I shouldn’t bother even looking at Fitbits.]
