Fitbit’s Charge line of fitness trackers are extremely popular — even more so than its recent smartwatches. The company announced its latest activity tracker, the Fitbit Charge 3, back in August, and now we have an official launch date. Fitbit has confirmed that the Fitbit Charge 3 release date is Sunday, October 7.

You can pre-order the Charge 3 now from Fitbit.com, Amazon, Best Buy, Macy’s, Verizon, Target, and Walmart. You can buy it from Kohl’s too, but it’s listed as “coming soon.”

The standard Charge 3 starts at $149.95, while the special edition model — the one with Fitbit Pay — costs $169.95. It’s worth noting that the model without Fitbit Pay will ship out in one week, while the special edition won’t ship until November.

Also, at launch, the Charge 3 won’t support Quick Replies on Android — the Fitbit website says that’s coming at a later date.

Fitbit has also announced that it will soon open enrollment for the Fitbit Labs Sleep Score beta program in November. Sleep Score will give users a score based on their quality of sleep and how much sleep they’re getting. 

We just got the Charge 3 in for review, so be on the lookout for a full review in a week or so. For now, I can say I’m pretty excited for this device. The software and hardware seem to have been improved quite a bit compared to the Charge 2.
