Fitbit’s on a roll this year, and we has already seen the release of both the Alta and Blaze. Now the company’s offering up sequels to classic models with the Charge 2 and Flex 2. The Charge 2 is priced at $150. Making it more expensive than the Fitbit Alta but cheaper than the Fitbit Blaze and just about the same price as the old Charges when they first launched.

Fitbit Charge 2 Fitness Tracker Design:

The Fitbit Charge 2 retains a very Fitbit-esque look. Taking cues from its predecessor, as well as the Fitbit Alta and a little from Surge. It is actually much sleeker than the others, with a larger black and white OLED screen that is four times bigger than on the old Charge devices. It is also more fashionable looking with a polished silver body that’s similar to the Alta’s.
