Yesterday, Fitbit really showed off the updated wearables we’ve been waiting for. Sense, Inspire 2 and Versa 3 debuted in 2020, and since then the manufacturer has only had Charge 5 and Luxe. Today, however, the Google-owned company is sharing details on three new devices: the Inspire 3, Versa 4, and Sense 2. As usual, Fitbit’s focus is on comfort and battery life, along with some much-needed extras. It makes sense to talk about the Sense 2 and Versa 4 as the same device, since both are getting a lot of useful iterative updates. Both offer continuous heart rate monitoring paired with activity, stress and sleep tracking for over six days of battery life.
But these new models will also soon connect to Google Maps, allowing you to see turn-by-turn directions on your wrist. Devices are also getting access to Google Wallet, and while it’s not mentioned in the release, Fitbit Pay will be marginalized as a result. Sense 2 also features a body response sensor that measures electrodermal activity and is designed to track your response to stress. Naturally, with wearables becoming more popular these days, Fitbit hopes it will have an edge over the competition in software and services. Premium subscribers with both devices can check out the Sleep Profile, which uses 10 different metrics to determine how you sleep and suggests ways to improve your sleep.
