What you need to know
- Fitbit's new Sense, Versa 3, and Inspire 2 wearables are now available to purchase in the U.S.
- All three wearables were announced last month.
- Fitbit has also announced a new OS 5.0 update exclusively for the Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches.
Fitbit expanded its smartwatch lineup last month with the Sense and Versa 3. While both watches went up for pre-order on the same day of their announcement, they are finally hitting store shelves today, along with the low-cost Fitbit Inspire 2 fitness tracker.
The Fitbit Sense is one of the company's impressive smartwatches yet, featuring improved heart-rate tracking, built-in GPS, Google Assistant, six-day battery life, as well as ECG and electrodermal activity (EDA) sensors. Fitbit Versa 3, on the other hand, looks similar to its predecessor but comes with improved health monitoring features and built-in GPS. It also gets an upgraded PurePulse 2.0 system for more accurate heart-rate tracking.
The Fitbit Inspire 2 has a more streamlined design compared to its predecessor and offers over 20 workout modes. Battery life is another area where the Inspire 2 is a major upgrade over the Inspire. Fitbit claims the fitness tracker can last over 10 days on a single charge.
Fitbit has also announced a major update to Fitbit OS, which it says has been designed exclusively for Versa 3 and Sense smartwatches. Fitbit OS 5.0 comes with several new UI elements, faster navigation, and a bunch of general usability improvements. Unfortunately, Fitbit has confirmed that it has no plans of bringing OS 5.0 to any of its older devices.
