Fitbit has announced this year’s autumn lineup featuring two new smartwatches, the Versa 4 and Sense 2. Plus, an affordable fitness tracker the Inspire 3.
Google might have bought the fitness tracking company but it looks like it still has some good stuff to offer.
The wearable company has upgraded its Sense to create its most advanced smartwatch focused on managing stress. Heart health gets a spotlight on this device which has sensors that can detect signs of atrial fibrillation through its ECG app and PPG algorithm.
The Sense 2’s brand new Body Response sensor with the on-wrist continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) sensor, monitors things like heart rate variability and skin temperature for all-day stress management. The Sense 2 is available for £269.99.
With the upgraded Versa 4, Fitbit has added over 40 exercise modes, real-time stats, built-in GPS and Active Zone Minutes, plus Premium features like Daily Readiness for £199.99.
Finally we have the Inspire 3 that boasts an impressive 10-day battery life. For just £84.99 it’s an attractive entry-level device that still does the job of monitoring vital health information.
Fitbit is also bringing a new heart health feature to the UK with the Irregular Heart Rhythm Notifications which uses the company’s PPG (photoplethysmography) algorithm.
This feature passively assesses your heart rhythm in the background while you’re still or sleeping. If there’s anything that might be suggestive of AFib, you’ll get notified via the Fitbit app so you can alert your doctor.
With the Google’s Pixel smartwatch just around the corner, it looks like Google is still banking on people picking up the more affordable and familiar option with the new range of Fitbits.
