We wouldn’t have been totally surprised if Google axed Fitbit entirely after recent woes, but it sounds like the company might be listening instead! 9to5Google is reporting that a Fitbit Charge 6, coming this year, will bring back the physical button.
9to5Google doesn’t have a lot of details about the new wearable, but “sources familiar with the matter” tell the publication that it “looks exactly like the Charge 5 except for the addition of a physical button on the left edge.”
Google is launching its Pixel 8 phones at an event on October 4th. While Fitbit wasn’t mentioned, I suspect we may see the new Fitbit Charge 6 at or around that event.
