Fitbit casually dropped three new fitness trackers this week and all of them are available in Australia. This is what you need to know and how much they’ll cost you.
New Fitbit devices
The flagship of the new line up is the Fitbit Sense. Looking at the spec sheet it sounds damn impressive.
First up we have some of the usual suspects such as NFC payments, always on display, active zone minutes tracking and built-in GPS. It has also added Google Assistant (which isn’t surprising since it, you know, bought the brand) and bluetooth calls can be made on the wrist with Android-paired phones.
But there are some even more interesting health tracking inclusions that have been added this time around. These include stress tracking, a skin temperature sensor and ECG functionality. However, much like the Apple Watch, the latter with need Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approval before that feature will work in Australia.
It also boasts a six-day battery life and a 12-minute fast charge that will get you an entire day of juice.
Fitbit Versa 3
The Versa 3 is a far more impressive upgrade compared to its predecessor, at least on paper.
This time around it has been blessed with built-in GPS, new pace and distance heat maps, bluetooth calls with Android and active zone minute tracking.
It also has the same battery life situation as the Sense, which is a big bonus.
Under the hood the UX has gotten a complete overhaul, allowing for a more intuitive experience, as well as widgets.
Fitbit Inspire 2
If you’re looking for less-involved (and cheaper) Fitbit experience, the Fitbit Inspire 2 may be more your jam. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the larger devices, but it does have an insane battery life.
Fitbit claims the Inspire 2 will last over 10 days with continuous heart rate monitoring. This is its longest-lasting device to date and good news for anyone who prefers a Fitness tracker there is a little bit more hands off. And as an added bonus it comes with a free year of Fitbit Premium.
Fitbit Australian Pricing
The Fitbit Sense costs $499.95 and comes in in carbon/graphite stainless steel and lunar white/soft gold stainless steel.
The Fitbit Versa 3 costs $399.95 and comes in black/black aluminium, pink clay/soft gold aluminium and midnight/soft gold aluminium.
The Fitbit Inspire 2 costs $179.95 and comes in black, lunar white and desert rose.
All three new fitness trackers are available for pre-order in Australia now. They will go on sale world wide in September.
