Fitbit launches new fitness trackers and smartwatches

Three major Fitbit wearables are getting an upgrade. These are the Sense 2, Inspire 3 and Versa 4, which are being sold for the first time under the “Fitbit by Google” brand. The American tech giant acquired Fitbit at the beginning of last year for 1.8 billion euros.

The updated entry-level model is the Inspire 3. This fitness tracker features an improved always-on color display and now offers a battery that can last up to ten days on a single charge. The waterproof gadget costs €99.95, is available with straps in different colors and comes with a free six-month trial of Fitbit Premium. This service, which can also be tried for free with the new Sense 2 and Versa 4, provides additional insights into your health, for example through your daily recovery score and sleep profiles.

Maps and wallet

Fitness is key on the Versa 4. For example, there are more than forty (previously half) sports modes available, with newcomers like HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), weightlifting, CrossFit and dancing. The device also offers built-in GPS, minutes in active zones, real-time heart rate zone statistics and other statistics. Another useful feature is direct access to Google Maps (with navigation directions) and Google Wallet. Target price: 229.95 euros.

Finally, there is the renewed Sense 2, the top model of the Fitbit line at €299.95. We remember in particular the body response sensor of this smartwatch, which continuously records your so-called electrical activity (cEDA) through your skin.

signs of stress

Based on your heart rate (variance) and skin temperature, Sense 2 indicates when your body shows signs of stress. The goal is for the wearer to become more aware of potential triggers and thus build a stress management routine. Tools include a guided breathing session and mindfulness exercises, either from your wrist or via the Fitbit app.
