Fitbit 2

The 2020 Sense 2 is Fitbit’s most sophisticated health-tracking gadget. Fitbit claims new device is 10% slimmer and 15% lighter than its predecessor, with the same 6-day battery life.

The original Sense was the first smartwatch with an EDA sensor, which monitors electrical changes in sweat to assess stress. This year’s model has a cEDA sensor for all-day stress monitoring.

When the Sense 2 detects a “body response,” it tells you and asks how you’re feeling: delighted, peaceful, frightened, upset, etc. When stressed, it suggests taking a walk or conducting a guided breathing exercise. The Fitbit app tracks your stress statistics, including charts of your body’s two-hour and 24-hour reactions.
The Sense 2 may inform you in real time or at the end of the day or week about bodily reactions. Fitbit disables body-response notifications at night to save sleep. When worn to bed, the Sense now tracks sleep consistency and time to fall asleep.

Like the original, the Sense 2 delivers irregular heart rhythm warnings and an ECG app for on-demand heart health assessments (AFib). The Apple Watch has comparable functionality, and the watchOS 9 upgrade coming this autumn adds a new AFib History feature.

Versa4 Fitbit

The Versa 4’s mechanical button is a nice boost for athletes with sweaty palms over last year’s haptic one. Fitbit claims the Versa 4 will soon support Google Maps and Google Wallet.

Fitbit revamped the Versa 4 and Sense 2 interfaces and added 40 workout modes. The Versa 4 has a built-in GPS, Bluetooth calling, SMS alerts, and rapid responses, and a 6-day battery life.

Fitbit Inspire 3

Fitbit’s Inspire 3 is a cheaper alternative to the Charge 5 and Luxe.
This year’s model boasts an AMOLED colour display with an always-on option, a smaller design, and a SpO2 sensor, while maintaining its predecessor’s 10-day battery life. The Inspire 3 tracks heart rate, stress, sleep, Active Zone Minutes, and Daily Readiness.

The New Fitbits

Fitbit’s fall 2022 wearables are available for pre-order and due in September. All three come with six months of Fitbit Premium (usually $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year), which includes 90-day health metric trend graphs, more than 1,000 exercises, and more.

Now available: Charge 5 and Luxe accessories. Fitbit has vegan leather bands for both models ($49.95), woven Charge 5 straps manufactured with recycled fibre ($34.95), and a golden dawn Charge 5 sport band ($29.95).
