As per Fitbit, the Charge 3 is made from lightweight materials and also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection of the display. Speaking of which, the OLED display on the Charge 3 happens to be 40 percent larger and brighter than the previous generation. There is no word on when the Fitbit 3 will be coming to India.
