The Fitbit Versa 4 focuses on fitness. More than 40 sport modes are available (previously there were 20), including new options such as HIIT, weightlifting, CrossFit and dancing. The smartwatch also offers built-in GPS, minutes in active zones and real-time insight into your heart rate zone and other statistics, so that you can train even more specifically. Finally, with the daily recovery score of Fitbit Premium, you can determine whether it is better to exercise or rest. Each score comes with an action, such as a recommended number of minutes in active zones.
The Sense 2 is all about stress management. The Body Response sensor continuously monitors electrodermal activity (cEDA). Together with the cEDA sensor, Sense 2 analyzes your heart rate, heart rate variability and skin temperature to help you understand via notifications when your body is showing signs of stress. This will help you become aware of potential triggers and build a routine to manage your stress. When you receive a notification, your Sense 2 offers you several options, such as filling in your mood or doing a guided breathing session or mindfulness, both from your wrist and in the app.
The Fitbit Inspire 3 is a tracker that helps you stay on top of your health with a thin, lightweight design, 10-day battery life and water resistance to 50 meters. The Inspire 3 tracks your activity (steps, calories burned, distance, activity per hour), workouts (minutes in active zones and weekly goals), heart rate, heart health, stress and sleep quality (duration, sleep score, oxygen level) 24/7. You can also start a workout, set an alarm or start a stopwatch from your wrist. It’s an entry-level model with a new bright, always-on color display that keeps track of key insights at an accessible price. Inspire 3 comes with a colorful assortment of classic, translucent and stainless steel straps.
Starting today, Fitbit Sense ($299.95), Versa 4 ($229.95) and Inspire 3 ($99.95), which includes a six-month Premium membership for both new and returning customers, are available to pre-order. With worldwide availability of Inspire 3 in September and Versa 4 and Sense 2 in the fall.
