The next iteration of Fitbit’s Charge fitness tracker could be getting a new look. The Fitbit Charge 5 may feature a new rounded design and color display, according to renders from leaker Evan Blass posted to Twitter on Saturday. 

If it does include a curved screen, the Fitbit Charge 5’s possible new design could be similar to that of the Fitbit Luxe, which was released in April. 

Although the render from Blass didn’t share any specs for the new fitness tracker, they did show three different color options for the purported Fitbit Charge 5 including teal, cream and black. 

The Fitbit Charge 4, released last year, features a black-and-white display with built-in GPS, improved activity tracking and more sleep health data compared with the Fitbit Charge 3.

Google acquired wearable maker Fitbit in January. The $2.1 billion deal was announced in late 2019 and was scrutinized by European Union officials over privacy concerns about how Google could use Fitbit’s collection of health data. Google received conditional approval from the EU in December after promising not to use health data for targeted ads. 

Google didn’t immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
