They are among our favourite wearables, transforming Fitbit fitness trackers into smartwatches that we can use to monitor our health and fitness goals. A 2020 release date means we’ll have to wait for an upgrade. Fortunately, it appears that we’ve just gotten some good glances at Sense 2 and Versa 4, two upcoming movies.
Some of the photographs, a tech news site, which claims that they were taken from a regulatory agency. The images show two square-shaped smartwatches, but the Sense 2 appears to have a few noteworthy upgrades.
Fitbit looks to have modified the design of the metal frame surrounding the display, which now appears to be incorporated into the display bezels, to capture ECG readings. This is evident from the photographs.
It also appears that the back sensors have been rearranged, but the purpose of this adjustment is unknown.
However, Fitbit’s initial Sense customers will be pleased to hear that the fake button is being replaced by a genuine one. For anyone who were unhappy with the original Sense’s capacitive button, this should be a pleasant improvement.
To be honest, there aren’t many new features in the Versa 4. There’s a new physical button on the watch, but that’s about it. This was already showed shown in a leak, confirming the new design even further.
Although it doesn’t support ECG, which may be an issue for certain users, the lack of the metric is likely to help keep the price down for those who don’t worry as much about it.
However, because the Versa 3 is one of Fitbit’s greatest products, its replacement probably won’t need to reinvent the wheel in order to succeed.
These timepieces are almost certainly going to be released in the near future, given the availability of regulatory photos. With the Christmas season just around the corner, it makes sense to launch the next generation of the Sense and Versa 3 in September 2020.
