Fitbit's Charge and Flex sports trackers are two and three years old, respectively, so a recent trademark listing stoked rumors that new models would come soon. We can now see what the Flex 2 and Charge 2 probably look like, thanks to a leak from TechnoBuffalo. The smartwatch-like Charge 2 has a bigger screen and interchangeable bands in blue, violet and black. It also comes with a PurePulse heart rate monitor, and as before, it supports smartphone notifications and multi-sport tracking, according to the listing below.

The Flex 2, meanwhile has re-oriented the indicator lights and is listed as "swim-proof" (below), where it was only splash- and rain-proof before. Previous features, like sleep tracking and all-day battery life, remain intact.

The wearable company has famously battled skin rash issues with its trackers, but has taken measures to eliminate those and still holds a slim lead in the fitness wearable market. Given the earlier trademark leak and images (if accurate), we'd assume the product will be arriving soon.
