The Fitbit Charge 5 is ready to receive new Daily Readiness Score, ECG app

Fitbit finally rolls out long-awaited features on the new Charge 5.

What you need to know

  • Fitbit brings its new ECG app to the new Charge 5.
  • Fitbit is also introducing its Daily Readiness Score for Fitbit Premium members.
  • The new features are arriving with an update to the Fitbit app and the device.

When the new Fitbit Charge 5 was launched in August, it touted its built-in ECG sensor and new Daily Readiness Score. Both features, however, were not available at launch, but more than two months later, Fitbit is finally bringing the features to its latest health tracker.

The Charge 5 is getting a new ECG app to compliment the first ECG sensor on a Fitbit device. With the app, users will be able to check for atrial fibrillation by opening the app and holding their fingers to the side panels for 30 seconds.

The Daily Readiness Score is also coming to the Charge 5 and more of the best Fitbit devices for users with a Fitbit Premium subscription. With this, Fitbit will take various metrics like sleep, activity, and heart rate variability and use them to determine how users can enhance their fitness and recovery.

For example, if you have a moderate or high score of 30 or more, the Fitbit app will encourage users to hit their goals. With a low score, the app will encourage ways for you to rest and recover so you can get back on track for an optimal workout session.

This is exclusive to Fitbit Premium members and will also be available for other devices besides the Charge 5, including the Fitbit Sense, Versa 3, Versa 2, Luxe and Inspire 2. For Android users, this will require version 3.50 of the Fitbit app.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds.
