Fitbit Sense. Fitbit today unveiled three new health-center wearables at a new virtual launch event. The new wearables – Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 3, and Fitbit Inspire 2 – build many sensors that help users track the essential data that helps maintain a healthy lifestyle. With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, Fitbit says people need to take care of their physical and mental health. The company’s new fitness wearables offer acclaimed access to a Fitbit premium for a limited time. Both Fitbit sensors and its mechanisms rely on providing meaningful data to users to live an overall healthy life.
Fitbit Sense is the company’s primary fitness wearable of these three. The smartwatch comes with an EDA sensor, which is used for stress management, Fitbit tells anyone who can wear it. The sensor can measure a user’s electrodermal functional responses, which basically checks for small electrical changes in the skin’s sweat levels. Sense comes with an ambient light sensor with a large AMOLED display.
Fitbit says users can use data from the EDA sensor to provide relevant stress-related data to help them manage their stress. The company also introduces a new stress management score that tells users how their bodies respond to stress based on certain health measurements, including activity, heart rate, and sleep patterns.
The new Fit Sense ECG also comes in handy, which can help diagnose heart problems such as atrial fibrillation. The company claims that its new Pure Pulse 2.0 technology, which uses a built-in heart rate sensor, is an even more advanced heart rate technology. It can notify the user when the heartbeat is too slow or too fast.
Sense stands alone with its stress detection features, which is one of the main requirements – especially in today’s increasingly stressful world. To take a reading, hold your palm to the screen and begin to breathe. Sense measures your heart rate and, uniquely, collects your skin’s temperature through its electrodermal activity (ETA) sensor. If your skin feels hot, cold, or bitter, it makes sense to understand why it happens over time. The use of Fitbit will score you on your stress level, the higher the score the better.
Besides, Fitbit Sense comes with a new skin temperature sensor that can detect the early signs of the flu or detect the onset of a new menstrual cycle. The smartwatch constantly monitors skin temperature and keeps its record. Fitbit Sense can detect a user’s SpO2 levels day and night. Fitbit says it has learned from a study on COVID-19 that some health measurements found by Fitbit wearers, such as respiration rate and resting heart rate, can be used to detect early COVID-19 symptoms.
Fitbit Versa 3 is the second wearable fitness center to be launched today. The smartwatch comes with built-in GPS, Pure Pulse 2.0, and a built-in speaker. Versa 3 comes with support for virtual assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Users can use Fitbit Pay to make payments to selected merchants, which are now available in select countries.
Both the Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit Sense use the same magnetic charger and guarantee up to six days of battery life at full charge. The company claims that users can quickly charge 12 minutes for a full day of use. Fitbit’s smartwatches and fitness bands are compatible with Android and iOS smartphones.
Fitbit Inspire 2 is a combination of Fitbit Inspire and Inspire HR. It is the most affordable fitness wearable of the three new products announced today. The Inspire 2 heart rate sensor comes with a functional monitor that can monitor more than 20 target-based exercises, and guarantees up to 10 days of battery life. Fitbit Inspire 2 comes with a one-year free subscription to Fitbit Premium
