Fitbit introduces four new and cheaper wearables, including two trackers and a new smartwatch. You should know this.
These are the 4 new Fitbit wearables
Less than half a year after the release of the Charge 3, Fitbit is launching four new wearables: two fitness trackers and a new smartwatch. With these wearables, the company clearly focuses on the price-conscious consumer. Later this year a new version of the Fitbit app will be released.
1. Versa Lite Edition
The Versa Lite Edition is cheaper and stripped down version of the already available Fitbit Versa. In contrast to the Versa, the Versa Lite, for example, can not measure climbed floors or swimming sessions. Nor is it possible to listen to music through the watch. However, the Versa Lite keeps track of your activities, heart rate, and sleep. Fitbit promises a battery life of more than four days.
The Versa Lite can’t connect to Wi-Fi. To receive updates, a small amount of data from an update is placed on the smartwatch with each synchronization.
The Fitbit Versa Lite Edition costs 159 euros and is available from 15 March in the colors white, lilac, magenta, and sea blue.
2. Fitbit Ace 2
The Fitbit Ace is a wearable made for children, to keep track of how much they move and motivate them to take extra steps. Although this tracker according to Fitbit in the Netherlands was not a great success, the company tries again with successor Ace 2. This time the wearable is suitable for children aged 6 years and older. In the pastor that was 8 years and older.
The Ace 2 now has a rubber sheath, is water-resistant and has cheerful dials. Think of a monster or a flower that grows when children get closer to their target. Fitbit promises more than four days of battery life.
Interestingly, the Ace 2, as children age, can be transformed into a wearable for adults. The rubber cover can be exchanged for a normal strap. The dial can also be adjusted. This will change the Fitbit Ace 2 into a limited Fitbit Inspire without notifications, calorie burning, and registration for female health.
The Ace 2 costs 69 euros and is available from March 15 in the colors coral red with turquoise and night blue with neon yellow.
3. Fitbit Inspire and Inspire HR
The Fitbit Inspire replaces the Fitbit Alta. It is a thin wearable that can be worn as a bracelet or on the waistband of a pair of trousers. The standard Fitbit Inspire can’t measure heart rate, has no GPS and can not keep up with sleep. The Fitbit Inspire HR can do all that. Both versions need to do about 5 days with a battery charge.
The Inspire HR is similar in appearance to the Fitbit Charge but is somewhat thinner and cheaper. Unlike the Fitbit Charge 3 Special Edition, it is not possible to use Fitbit Pay with the Inspire HR.
The Fitbit Inspire costs 69.95 euros and is available in the colors black and sangria from 15 March. The Fitbit Inspire HR costs € 99.95 and is available from the same day in the colors black, lilac and black with white.
These new wearables are available next to Charge 3, Versa and Ionic. Read our Fitbit Charge 3 review and Fitbit Versa review for more information.
