Fitbit Brings Smart Alarm to Fitbit Charge 4

In a recent firmware update 1.96.29, Fitbit brings new features to Fitbit Charge 4, including Dynamic GPS, Smart alarm, and screen display time out.

The smart alarm in Fitbit Charge 4 is likely to wake up the user more energetic and refreshed.

When you set the alarm on Fitbit Charge 4, Fitbit Ionic, and Fitbit Versa series, it automatically identifies the best time to wake the user 30 mints before the alarm time. Actually, the device is trying not to wake up the user at the deep sleep stage. Waking up at a deep sleep stage makes the user feel sleepy and less active.

For example, if you set the alarm at 6.30 AM, the Fitbit Charge 4 will wake up the user during the lighter sleep stage between 6 & 6.30 AM. If the device can not find a better time to wake you up, the alarm will wake up the user at the set time.

Another feature that comes along with this update is the custom screen timeout. Like in smartphones, this feature allows the Fitbit Charge 4 to set a screen timeout time in the settings. But setting a more extended time duration will result in draining the battery faster.

The custom screen timeout option is available in the settings. By default, 10 seconds is the default time for screen timeout in Fitbit devices. But just by tapping on the “Screen timeout,” you can select 15s, 20s, 45s, or 60s. But remember, the longer time you set, the faster the battery drains.
