The Inspire 3 fitness tracker and two other high-end smartwatches are part of Fitbit’s newly unveiled “autumn lineup,” which was announced today. The Google-owned business avoided making any major design shifts with its latest smartphones, the Versa 4 and Sense 2, opting instead to refine the existing styles. Unless you consider the actual button that replaced the capacitive one last year.
On the inside, the motif is largely maintained. The new continuous EDA sensor gives the Sense 2 improved stress management throughout the day. By doing so, you can identify potential sources of stress and develop a routine for dealing with those sources, which can ultimately increase your resilience. More than 1,000 workouts and mindfulness sessions, along with the Fitbit Premium paywall-protected Versa 4, are available on the Ionic. The Ionic also has GPS and the 40 exercise modes that the Versa 4 lacked. With that, you get the most comprehensive sleep tracking and the Daily Readiness Score, which tells you “whether to push hard or take a rest day,” and it appears that Fitbit has no intentions to eliminate the subscription model.
Since these products were likely already in development when Google bought Fitbit, they do not support Wear OS. However, Google has stated that the Versa 4 and Sense 2 will soon have access to the Maps and Wallet apps.
These two also include 24/7 heart rate monitoring, real time metrics, and “more than six days of battery life”. The battery can be charged to full capacity in just 12 minutes with the help of fast charging, which will keep you going for a full day.
The Inspire 3 is the latest edition of Fitbit’s entry-level tracker, and it monitors activities, heart rate, calories, distance, sleep and stress in a redesigned thin, light, and more vibrantly colorful compact. It can last up to 10 days on a charge depending on your usage, and 3 or more days with the always-on display mode.
The Versa 4 costs $229.95, while the Sense 2 is $299.95 and the Inspire 3 is $99.95. A Premium account that renews every six months is always free. Pre-orders for all three variants can be placed now at fitbit.com and “chosen global retailers.” In September, you’ll be able to get your hands on one Inspire 3, and “this fall” will bring you the other two.
