Fitbit Sense Goes After Apple Watch With ECG, Stress and Temperature Detection


Fitbit has launched its new health-focused wearables- Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 3, and Fitbit Inspire 2 in India.

The Apple, Samsung, and Garmin-rivaling trio is already available for pre-order starting today, but early adopters of any of the three health-centric gadgets will have to wait until "late September" for "broad worldwide availability".

"Our new products and services are our most innovative yet, coupling our most advanced sensor technology and algorithms to unlock more information about our bodies and our health so you can be in control", said James Park, co-founder and CEO, Fitbit.

This is Fitbit's flagship wearable and apart from the usual jazz, it features an EDA sensor to enable users to measure their stress levels.

Fitbit says it's the first smartwatch with an "electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor" for stress management.

The Fitbit Sense is the company's premium offering and is priced at Rs 34,999. And you can summon Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant with a voice command. Along with that comes the Fitbit Versa 3 with some significant upgrades over its predecessor, and the new (and still relatively affordable) Fitbit Inspire 2.

Prices for the Versa 3 and Inspire 2 have been set to RM1198 and RM498 respectively. You calso get a one-year free trial of Fitbit Premium (worth €79) with it, which is nearly as much as the cost of the device itself.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their travel requirements Friday, according to multiple media reports . Last week, the Africa CDC launched a campaign to carry out 20 million COVID-19 tests across the continent by November.

The new Fitbit health smartwatch called the Sense comes with an ECG app that can detect an irregular heart rhythm.

This smartwatch will also keep you up to date with all of your texts and calls - when it is connected to your phone via Bluetooth.

Fitbit Inspire 2 is one of the company's most affordable health-tracking wearables. The Versa 3 will come in at $229.95 and the Sense will run $329.95. With the Versa 3 we get the addition of Global Positioning System in the watch and with the Fitbit Sense, we're getting a ton of new, handy features like an ECG monitor, skin temp sensor, and a speaker for taking/making calls right on your wrist.

It is tricky to say if it's value upgrading if you presently personal the 1st-technology Encourage, but $99 appears to be like a superior selling price for a discreet, h2o-resistant product that can track your exercise and slumber, watch your heart amount, and press your phone's notifications to your wrist.

First up we have some of the usual suspects such as NFC payments, always on display, active zone minutes tracking and built-in Global Positioning System.

The most notable change is the battery life, which Fitbit has doubled to last ten days.

Fitbit is getting smarter, healthier, and a little fancier, too. The Sense is reportedly the brand's most advanced smartwatch yet. The advantage here is a more discreet size and better battery life (up to 10 days, according to Fitbit). The first is a bit more obvious than the second: the Sense's spec sheet puts it squarely in competition with other premium smartwatches and features like EDA and ECG measurements emphasize its potential as a long-term health device. The other two equipment thorough previously mentioned involve six-month trials of Fitbit Top quality.
