Today (25-August), Fitbit has unveiled three new health-focused wearables at a virtual launch event. The new wearables – Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 3, and Fitbit Inspire 2 – come with several sensors that can track essential data to help users maintain a healthy lifestyle. Fitbit Sense is priced at $330 while the Fitbit Versa 3 will cost $230. The Fitbit Inspire 2 fitness band is priced at $100. While all the three new fitness wearables are available for pre-orders in the US, the global release will kick off by the end of September.
Fitbit Sense is the company's flagship fitness tracker among the three. The smartwatch comes with an EDA sensor that is used for stress management, which Fitbit claims is the first for any wearable. The sensor can measure a user's electrodermal activity responses, which is essentially checking for tiny electrical changes in the sweat levels of the skin. Fitbit Sense has a large AMOLED display with an ambient light sensor. The company is also introducing a new Stress Management Score that will tell users how their bodies respond to stress based on certain health metrics including activities, heart rate, and sleep patterns. The new Fitbit Sense also arrives with an ECG app that can detect heart issues such as atrial fibrillation. The company claims its new PurePulse 2.0 technology, which uses the in-built heart rate sensor, is its most advanced heart rate technology yet. In addition, Fitbit Sense also comes with a new skin temperature sensor that can detect early signs of a fever or the start of a new menstrual cycle.
