AH Reader's Choice Awards 2020: Best Fitness Tracker – Fitbit Charge 4

AH Readers Choice 2020 Fitbit Charge 4

The best way to take charge of your health and wellness

Fitness trackers are a dime a dozen but the Charge 4 is the winner of our 2020 Reader’s Choice award, and with good reason. Fitbit has long held its position as one of the top brands for fitness devices, and it’s not stopping anytime soon.

The Charge 4 is Fitbit’s best tracker yet. With built-in GPS, a longer battery life than the previous Charge tracker, and things like do not disturb mode so you can be in control of your mental health just as much as your physical health. This year Fitbit really honed in on what made its other Charge trackers so popular and refined those features. So it’s easy to see why the Charge 4 won the Android Headlines Reader’s Choice award for Best Fitness Tracker in 2020.

It stays charged all week so you can stay charged all day

Battery life is not the most important factor to all users. But it is the most important for a majority of them no doubt. Because what good is a fitness tracker if it has no battery life?


The Fitbit Charge 4 has a battery life that lasts for up to 7 days on a single charge. Which means you can worry less about when to plug it in and more about how you can make it work for you the next day and the next day and the next day.

It also lets you take full advantage of letting you personalize it to make it your own. Thanks to swappable bands and personalized clock face options to help make yours unique. It also has built-in GPS. Making this the first tracker from Fitbit that features this capability.

That alone is a big step up from past Fitbit trackers and other trackers on the market. As it allows you to leave your phone at home. Though it does also offer Spotify control, so you may still want to take your phone with you if you like to listen to music during your workouts.


A comprehensive multi-tool focused on helping you improve your health

No matter what improved health is to you, chances are the Fitbit Charge 4 can help you achieve those goals. If it’s strictly physical fitness related, the Charge 4 can help with that with its all-day activity tracking and goal-based exercise mode.

If you like to incorporate more than just physical fitness into those improvements, this also tracks sleep and lets you turn on do not disturb mode so you won’t be bothered when you need some time to relax and recharge yourself.

It can even help you more easily pay for things with the Fitbit pay contactless payment system. All-in-all, the Charge 4 is a tracker that helps get things done. And it’ll be hard for even Fitbit to top.
