Fitbit introduced new wearable lineup: Sense 2, Inspire 3, Versa 4
Fitbit introduced a new lineup of wearables: The Sense 2, Inspire 3, and Versa 4. All of these are the successors of the previous generation of wearables. The Sense, Inspire 2, and Versa 3 are launched in 2020, after that the Charge 5 and Luxe are launched in between. On 24 September, Google the parent company of Fitbit lifted the covers from this fresh set of wearables. For this new set of wearables, Fitbit has focused on battery life and comfort.
Before we begin, we have sad news for those who are looking for a premium smartwatch from Fitbit with Wear OS, you’ll have to wait for a little longer as all of these watches still come with Fitbit’s own Operating System instead of the parent company Google’s Wear OS. But this is fine for most of the users, especially the current ones. As Fitbit software is popular, easy to use, and attractive at the same time, all of these things are the strengths of Fitbit over Wear OS for years. The reliable software experience of Fitbit makes it easy to recommend.
Since Google acquired Fitbit, we have all been waiting for a device with Fitbit hardware excellency and Googles Wear OS software, but we have to wait to see that happening in real. It would be interesting to see a Fitbit device with Wear OS.
