Fitbit Sense, Versa 3, and Inspire 2 leaked renders reveal Fitbit’s next set of wearables
It’s been a while since Google announced its intentions to acquire Fitbit for $2.1 billion, and that is mainly due to regulatory, antitrust investigations by the USA and the EU. In the meantime, the smartwatch company has been preparing to add software features such as Google Assistant integration into its fitness bands. But that apparently is not all, as newly leaked renders indicate that Fitbit is working towards launching the new Fitbit Versa 3, Fitbit Sense, and Fitbit Inspire 2.
The Fitbit Sense is speculated to be the first smartwatch-fitness tracker product from the company to launch with the ECG function, as the symbol on the back of the watch indicates; though this could also be for continuous heart rate monitoring. You are also likely to get other features such as temperature, GPS support, and water resistance. The build is expected to be of metal, so you can expect to see higher pricing on it.
Fitbit Versa 3
The Fitbit Versa 3, on the other hand, is expected to be cheaper and will come with support for voice input (and perhaps Google Assistant), GPS, and water resistance. The build is expected to be of polycarbonate, positioning it as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Sense.
Fitbit Inspire 2
The Fitbit Inspire 2 will be a fitness tracker foremost, and likely the cheapest device out of these three.
There isn’t any more information available on these devices yet. Google Assistant integration is also not confirmed, so there remains a tiny possibility that we might see Amazon Alexan integration continue for another generation, depending on the OEM’s contract. It will also be interesting to see how Fitbit positions these products in the market, in light of the increasing competition from other smartwatch makers such as Xiaomi and Garmin, and Apple and Samsung of course.
