Fitbit has released a new update for its Charge 4 fitness band. The update brings GPS improvements, Smart Wake alarms, and few other changes to the smart band.

The update comes with firmware version 1.96.29 and can be downloaded through the official Fitbit app.

The first one is Dynamic GPS, which allows Charge 4 to detect if it is near the user’s paired smartwatch or not. If your phone is nearby, Charge 4 uses the GPS sensors on your phone to capture your route, pace, and other stats. If you don’t take your phone, Charge 4 uses built-in GPS. It manages new GPS settings on Charge 4 to preserve your device’s battery life or to enhance GPS performance.

The second feature is Smart Wake in the Alarms app which avoids waking you during your deep sleep and finds the best time to wake you starting 30 minutes before the alarm time you set. It adjusts how long your screen stays on with the new Screen Time Out setting.

The Settings app now also shows the date on which the Charge 4 was activated. Art from these, the update also includes bug fixes and improvements.
