Fitbit has overhauled their top-of-the-line Charge model with the Charge 5, and the latest iteration of the fitness tracker is so packed with health features that it will make you question whether or not you actually need to spring for a full-fledged smartwatch.

For its fifth generation, the Fitbit Charge has a sleek new rounded design centered around a full-color touchscreen. The brilliant display is a first for the line, and it’s also two times brighter than the color-challenged screen of the Charge 4. But the Fitbit Charge 5 got much more than an aesthetic overhaul. The new tracker also adds some serious new health features, with the most notable being ECG and EDA sensors. The new sensors can detect heart rhythm irregularities and measure your stress levels, respectively, giving you a better overall picture of your health. The Fitbit Charge 5 also features built-in GPS, a daily readiness score that advises how hard you should work out each day, and measurements for metrics like skin temperature, breathing rate, and oxygen saturation. It’s available to pre-order now from Fitbit for $180.

Purchase: $180
