Fitbit Charge 5 users experiencing sudden battery drain after a recent update

If you own a Fitbit Charge 5, you may want to hold off installing the latest patch. Numerous reports from angry Fitbit users claim their fitness tracker no longer works properly after installing firmware version v194.61.

Released in late June, the update was only supposed to introduce new features and (ironically) bug fixes. It saw the introduction of right-to-left text notifications for various Asiatic languages as well as having all exercise modes become widely available in the Exercise app.
