Fitbit had so far limited itself to offering solutions in the field of “wearable” devices and had set aside smart watch manufacturers, but its new product seems to want to tempt users of these devices with a curious offer.
According to tucsonsmartwatches, the new Fitbit Blaze continues to focus on monitoring our physical activity, but this time the design and format is that of a smart watch in which we find a color screen but eye, no store applications.
Neither Smartwatch Nor Quantifier Bracelet
That differentiates Fitbit’s platform from competitors like watchOS or Android Wear, but we still find tools that make clear the ambition of these new devices in terms of connectivity and notifications: we will know who is calling us and also what calendar appointments we have pending, for Example, but there will be options as broad as in the solutions of Apple and Google.
The Blaze will have different types of straps ( including a plastic, a leather and a stainless steel strap), and like other Fitbit devices, the role of monitoring our physical activity.
The heart rate sensor, or the sleep monitor are for example some of the modes of operation that we will find in this “quantizing clock” in which also emphasizes that unique hexagonal design of the chassis in which is embedded the square touch screen Of the device.
Those responsible for Fitbit have indicated that the Blaze will be available during the month of March at a price starting at $ 200 and to which must be added the cost of the aforementioned belts. We are faced with a supervitamined version of the Fitbit Charge HR , but unlike the Fitbit Surge does not have GPS receiver, as it makes use of the receiver of the mobile to which we have connected.
