Google’s parent company Alphabet is reportedly looking to acquire Fitbit. The latter has been struggling to stay relevant in the fitness wearable while Google is struggling to make inroads in the smartwatch market.
Fitbit today announced the Versa 2, the successor to the original Versa launched in 2017. The Versa 2 is more of a sophisticated fitness tracker that tries to pass itself off as a smartwatch. However, if the Apple Watch does not interest you or if its too expensive, the Fitbit Versa 2 is definitely worth a look.
In the recent past, Fitbit is trying hard to strike the right balance between fitness and smartwatch features. The Fitbit Ionic and Versa lineups serve the purpose by offering compelling smartwatch feature whilst retaining fitness quintessential. Fitbit is already readying Versa 2 and the packaging along with the device have been leaked.
Unlike Apple Watch, Fitbit offers no-nonsense fitness tracking devices with limited smartwatch-like functionality. The company has a range of products that work as intended and rarely throw up any issues. However, if things ever go wrong and you are looking to restart or reset your Fitbit tracker, follow this guide.
At $400, Apple Watch isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking for a simple fitness tracker which counts steps, tracks workouts and your sleep, a $100 Fitbit is a great option. But the only problem is the lack of native integration. By default, Fitbit doesn’t sync your sleep, workouts, weight or steps to the Health app. But it’s possible to do using a third party app. Here’s how you can sync Fitbit with Apple Health app.
Fitbit today announced a ‘lite’ version of the Fitbit Versa which skips on some features found on the regular model. Dubbed Fitbit Versa Lite, the fitness-oriented smartwatch is priced at $159.95. Fitbit hopes the lower price tag and the attractive new colors will help attract customers to Versa Lite.
Fitbit Charge 3 With Bigger Display, 7-Day Battery Life, Advanced Sleep Tracking, and Sp02 Sensor Launched
Just a week after the first set of photos of the Fitbit Charge 3 leaked, the company has gone ahead and made the wearable official. Fitbit is billing the Charge 3 as its “most advanced tracker ever.”
Fitbit today unveiled its latest mass oriented smartwatch, the Fitbit Versa. Compared to the Ionic, the Versa sports a design that will attract more consumers. It also carries a far lower price tag than the Ionic which should help it better compete with the Apple Watch.
Images of Fitbit’s upcoming “mass appeal” smartwatch have leaked for the first time. The design language of the smartwatch is similar to that of the Blaze, though it does look a bit more modern and sleek which should help it attract more consumers. While packed with features, the Fitbit Ionic was not particularly a looker which is why it did not appeal to a wider range of audience.
Back in December of 2016, Fitbit officially acquired Pebble, a company that basically brought on the smartwatch craze several years back.
