Fitbit Versa, the latest “economic” smartwatch of the company, has had a good sales success and it seems that the company has decided to continue to focus on competitively priced devices: in fact, Fitbit has just presented three new wearables with a relatively low price: Versa Lite Edition, Inspire and Inspire HR. To these is added also Ace 2, a new variant of the smartband for children launched a year ago.
Fitbit Versa Lite is a “lightened” version of Versa: not so much in design (really very similar), when in function. Compared to the standard version, this Lite variant loses the possibility of playing music (so the keys for volume and internal memory to save the tracks also disappear), swimming and climbing tracking and the Fitbit Coach, the screen assistant that helps with the coaches. But, besides gaining the two new colors (magenta and blue), it reduces the price and maintains all the other functions that we have appreciated of Fitbit’s smartwatch, including color display with customizable watchface, tracing steps, calories and sleep, continuous monitoring cardiac arrest, notifications, 4 days autonomy and much more.
Fitbit Versa Lite Edition
For those who prefer the discretion of a smartband to the large display of a smartwatch, Fitbit proposes the new Inspire and Inspire HR: it is an activity tracker with touch screen, waterproof, 5 days autonomy and with all the usual activity monitoring functions, calories burned and sleepy. As the name suggests, the main difference between the two is the presence (or not) of a heartbeat sensor.
Fitbit Inspire HR
The new Inspire line replaces the company’s previous activity trackers, Zip, Flex 2 and Alta, which will no longer be available.
Finally, Ace 2 is a new smartwatch for children aged 6 and up, designed to encourage the little ones to physical activity: it has a new water-resistant design and a frame that protects it from impacts.
