One factor we wouldn’t typically take into account Fitbit’s gadgets to be is fashionable, however it appears like the corporate may be attempting to vary that, with leaked renders exhibiting a beautiful watch that’s supposedly the successor to the Fitbit Blaze.
A supply apparently acquainted with Fitbit’s plans informed Wareable that “it needs this to be one thing that can attraction to a bigger, extra common semartwatch viewers,“ and that particularly Fitbit needs a watch that appeals extra to the feminine market.
They added that the brand new watch, which is claimed to be a successor to the Blaze however could or will not be known as the Fitbit Blaze 2, is shut in dimension to the unique Fitbit Blaze and smaller than the Fitbit Ionic.
Characteristic-packed however missing GPS
The brand new Fitbit can be supposedly waterproof to 50 meters, runs the identical Fitbit OS software program because the Ionic, and just like the Ionic has a relative SpO2 sensor, which might monitor blood oxygen ranges and can enable the system to watch for sleep apnea. One function it apparently received’t have although is GPS.
Lastly, the supply claimed the Fitbit Blaze 2 – or no matter it finally ends up being known as – will probably be accessible a while this spring (within the US, so March-Might) in black, silver, rose gold and charcoal colours with quite a lot of completely different straps, and that it’s going to price lower than the Fitbit Ionic – though on condition that the Ionic is Fitbit’s most costly wearable but at £299.95 / $299.95 / AU$449.95, that’s not saying a lot.
As at all times, we’d take these rumors with a pinch of salt, however the renders are high-quality, so they appear convincing.
