It's not very often that you see one of the world's best fitness trackers priced closer to the $50 mark than $100, and even though the Fitbit Charge 3 is a couple of generations behind the times, a killer new Woot deal arguably brings the 2018-released device in line with this year's Charge 5 as far as its mass appeal is concerned.
Charge 5 normally costs $180 (again, brand new), while the Charge 4 starts at a little under $130 on Amazon at the time of this writing.That's because the Amazon-owned e-tailer is currently charging (no pun intended) a measly $69.99 for a "factory reconditioned" unit with a 90-day manufacturer warranty included.

In case you're wondering, a "factory reconditioned" product is apparently "as close to new as you can get without technically being new", with the original manufacturer itself or a "certified partner" having handled the process of restoring your dirt-cheap Fitbit Charge 3 to fully working condition after receiving it from its first owner and carefully inspecting it.
