Days after Dutch tech site nieuwemobiel published purported photos of the upcoming Fitbit Charge 3, Android Authority received more information and photos of the fitness tracker.

Sources told Android Authority that the Charge 3 is likely to have a completely touchscreen interface which will bring the interface navigation in line with the Fitbit Ionic and Versa smartwatches. Another significant upgrade is water resistance; the fitness tracker has a rating of 5ATM which means you can wear it for swimming up to 50m of depth. The Charge 3 is stated to come with a 7-day battery life on a single charge. 

Fitbit is also said to be introducing a "special edition" of the Charge 3 which comes with a NFC chip to support its native payment service, Fitbit Pay. The company is also believed to be removing a key feature, built-in GPS from the Charge 3 for unknown reasons. This means that you have to bring a paired phone along with the Charge 3 to track your outdoor activities such as walks and runs.
