Fitbit Plans Rewards To Incent Fitness 03/07/2019

Fitbit Plans Rewards To Incent Fitness 03/07/2019”

On the consumer side, the sharper focus on health maintenance has led a upcoming redesign of the Fitbit app which will make it easier for users to track fitness and health measurements and goals.

What the Versa Lite won't get, however, is the ability to track swimming laps, nor can it store or control music, making a little like a slightly stripped back Versa, though one that will come with a more affordable price, down from the Versa's $299.95 to the Versa Lite's $249.95.

Fitbit has also released its Inspire HR and Inspire devices - which were previously only available to enterprise customers - to the general public.

Global wearables maker Fitbit on Thursday refreshed its wearable line-up in the USA and other markets with Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, Fitbit Inspire HR, Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Ace 2.

The company is yet to announce the availability of the devices in India. The Fitbit Versa Lite Edition is a smartwatch which comes with nearly every feature of the fitness tracker.

The four in question are the Versa Lite Edition, Inspire HR, Inspire and Ace 2. The Versa Lite Edition is an affordable version of the Fitbit Versa. The products have a starting price of Rs 6,999 going up to Rs 15,999, with the devices aimed at developing countries. Both Fitbit Inspire and Inspire HR have a comfortable and swim proof design with a touch screen display, smartphone notifications (when your phone is nearby), and up to 5 days of battery life for day-to-night wear. The Inspire trackers feature all-day activity and sleep tracking, a 50-meter water resistance, and Fitbits' female health tracking.

Fitbit is also outing a new wearable for kids with this announcement, talking about the Ace 2 and its swim-proof design, though it won't be available until later this year, arriving for $129.95 when it does.

The Ace 2 has a fun and kid-friendly design. It comes with animated clock faces, swim-proof design, bumper to guard the watch and many other features.

For that much, buyers can look forward to all the features that they'd expect of a smartwatch, or for that matter, a fitness wearable.

The Fitbit Inspire HR is priced at Rs. 8,999, comes in black, lilac and two-tone black and white colours.

Next up we have the Fitbit Inspire HR which can be considered an upgrade to the Fitbit Alta HR. The cost of the Ace 2 band is Rs 6,999.
