Fitbit Charge 5’s receives a helpful feature with the latest update
Key requirements for the “Find Phone” feature
The report has also mentioned some key requirements that are essential for the “Find Phone” feature to work in Fitbit Charge 5. Firstly, the wearable has to be paired to the phone you want to locate and the handset must be switched on, have its Bluetooth turned on and be within 30 feet (10m) of the Fitbit device. Moreover, the phone needs to have the Fitbit app running in the background as well.
How does the feature work
As per the report, the new feature can be found “between Screen Wake and Water Lock when swiping down from the clock face.” Tapping the icon will open an app that will have the “Find Phone” option which when pressed will emit a loud tone on the paired device. Then, the users get a “Cancel” button to stop the tone.
Earlier, this feature was available on the Sense, Versa 3, and other Fitbit smartwatches. The report also states that the latest update is also expected to include bug fixes to a phone connectivity issue that “some owners were experiencing with the wearable” However, the company has not published the release note yet.
