Fitbit Charge 4, Powerbeats reviews, and we talk to Forest Carbon - Pocket-lint podcast ep 47

Season 2, Ep. 47

This week, the Fitbit Charge 4 has launched and Pocket-lint's editor Chris joins host Stuart to discuss the new fitness tracker. It add GPS for the first time, so is a big deal for Fitbit. 


Also, as part of Pocket-lint's Sustainability Month, Stuart chats with the co-founder of Forest Carbon, Stephen Prior, about how we can all plant many more trees to offset our carbon footprints and help save the planet. 


And finally, our contributing editor Cam Bunton gives us his verdict on the all-new Beats Powerbeats wireless earphones. 


While we have your attention, we also want to tell you about our plant a tree initiative we've launched: 


Pocket-lint has teamed up with Resideo - the new home of Honeywell Home - to plant trees in your name for free. We've already planted 1,000 trees, but we want to plant 3,000 more with your help and on your behalf.


If we can reach our target of 3,000 trees, it will mean we're offsetting around 900 carbon tonnes. That's the equivalent of over 1,000 return flights from Los Angeles to London, or the average CO2 a family of four uses over 150 years!


To help us help the environment, all you have to do is tell us the Mac address of a Honeywell smart thermostat that is active in your home or office. The thermostat can be already installed and being used or completely new - but it must be active and you must tell us before the end of April (30 April 2020).


You can find out more details here.
