All new Fitbits are available for pre-order today, with pre-shipment in early September.
Replacing the previous high-end Fitbit Ionic, a feature of the Fitbit Sense Active Zone Minute – first seen on Fitbit Charge 4, which Fitbit described as “10,000 steps taken to the next level.”
And, as Ionic takes over, the new smartwatch has built-in GPS. There are a ton of new features, many of which are not available on some Fitbits.
Sense has a new sensor, which Fitbit claims to be the world’s first electrodermal (EDA) sensor smartwatch.
EDA exists, yes, sympathetically and helps users manage stress.
Using the EDA Scan app, users need to place the palm of their hand on Sense’s face so that it can detect small electrical changes in the level of sweat on the skin.
It can also be paired with targeted sessions of to think in the Fitbit app to see how your body responds during meditation or relaxation. The EDA response graph, both on screen and in the mobile app, measures your emotional progress over time.
The integration of EDA, heart tracking technology, a new ECG app, and a warmer skin sensor helps users identify potential illnesses and stress.
A new stress management system, available on the new anxiety management tab in the Fitbit app, calculates how your body responds to data-based stress at your heart rate, sleep, and activity level.
The score is calculated using multiple biometric inputs, including effort measurement (performance effect), response (heart rate, heart rate fluctuations, and electrodermal function from the ScA Scan app), and sleep patterns (sleep quality),
Fitbit continues to maintain some of these health insights for Fitbit Premium members only. New Fitbit users get six months of free Premium, but existing users will have to pay 7.99 per month to get a detailed skip.
However, all Fitbit users will have access to a new care tab in the Fitbit app, where they can set a weekly maintenance goal and reminders, consider stress levels, record their post-session status, and meditate. as part of a form of care.
Sense also introduces a new skin sensor to detect changes in your health that may be a sign of a fever, illness, or the onset of a new menstrual cycle.
Sense features a heart rate monitor for Fitbit PurePulse 2.0, with a new multi-mode heart rate sensor and an updated algorithm.
This results in personal, device, and heart rate notification. Fitbit sensor can detect and send a notification if your heart rate is outside your normal range.
Many factors affect your heart rate, such as pressure or temperature, but high or low heart rate can be an indication of a condition that requires medical attention, such as bradycardia (slow heartbeat) and tachycardia (slow heartbeat). heartbeat very fast).
Fitbit Sense is the company’s first tool with an ECG app, to check your heart rate to detect symptoms of atrial fibrillation (AFib).
Fitbit Sense has six days of battery life, and is working with Alexa and Google voice assistants for Amazon – Google is in the process of acquiring Fitbit for $ 2.1 billion, so Alexa days can be calculated. .
Fitbit Versa 3
The Fitbit Versa 3 builds on the versatility of the Versa 2, but adds some of the features we first saw with the Fitbit Charge 4.
When you compare Fitbit Sense with Fitbit Versa 3, there are many similarities but there are also significant differences.
These include Hot Spot Minutes and built-in GPS, as well as working Alexa and Google voice assistants.
Like Sense, embrace the new PurePulse 2.0 heart card technology.
The most surprising thing for all Vitbit Fitbit users and news reviewers is that Sense and Verse 3 will use the same compression charger. Since the start of the Fitbit era, every tracker and smartwatch has been demanding its charger, making switching between models as frustrating as it burns.
In fact, Sense and Vers 3 share the same decorative beauty and battery life of the same days, so Fitbit enhances their efficiency.
The accessories will be interacting between the two new devices, Fitbit promises a molded way for a quick switch after complaining that Versa’s heavy hardware was hard to install. We will report this when we have samples for testing and review.
The differences between Versa 3 and Sense include Sense’s electrodermal function (EDA) sensor and skin temperature sensor.
Fitbit 2 recommendation: new tracker
Tracker firmness The entry level used as the Fitbit Inspire Clear, with Fitbit Inspire HR add heart rate sensor and other technical features.
Both of these products will now be replaced by Fitbit Inspire 2.
It has all the benefits of Inspire HR (including heart rate monitor) and adds Active Zone Minutes, like the new Vera 3 and Sense smartwatches.
The design is “pure” and the display is clearer and brighter. Also, we will test these claims when we have Inspire 2 for review.
The company claims that the Inspire 2 has a 10-day battery life, the longest in the Fitbit that can be repaired.
Thanks to the annoyance of new Sense customers, Inspire 2 comes with a one-year free Fitbit Premium subscription. Also, this is for new customers.
As we well say at Ionic, Inspire and Inspire HR, because all we know is that the Versa 2 will remain in the Fitbit family, as well as the Ace 2 children’s tracker. Charging 4 also remains.
