Fitbit has recently unveiled 3 health-focused wearables, namely Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Inspire 2, & Fitbit Versa 3, at a virtual product launch event. These products consist of sensors that help track essential health data.
The consumer electronics & fitness company has cited that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increased awareness for maintaining both physical and mental health. The company will be relying on its algorithms and sensors to provide meaningful data to users. They can also gain access to its Fitbit Premium for a limited period of time.
Out of these three products, Fitbit Sense is the flagship fitness wearable of the company. The EDA sensor in this smartwatch can be used in stress management. The sensor is also capable of measuring electrodermal activity responses, which can help check electrical changes in the users’ sweat levels. An ECG app in the new Fitbit Sense can also detect atrial fibrillation and other heart issues. Moreover, it comes with a skin temperature sensor that help detect the early signs of fever or commencement of the menstrual cycle. The product can detect SpO2 levels during day & night as well as early symptoms of the COVID-19 disease.
Additionally, Fitbit is introducing a Stress Management Score. Based on the health metrics such as sleep patterns, heart rate, and other activities of the users, it will provide information on how their bodies respond to stress.
Fitbit Versa 3 comes with PurePulse 2.0, an in-built GPS, as well as an in-built speaker to enable users to make phone calls. The product supports Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and other virtual assistants. Both Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 can be powered using the same magnetic charger and can run for 6 days on a full charge.
On the other hand, Fitbit Inspire 2 can help track nearly 20 goal-based exercises due to its heartrate sensor. It has a battery life of over 10 days and comes with a 1-year subscription to the Fitbit Premium service.
