Fitbit Versa Lite, Inspire, Inspire HR and Ace 2 Wearables Announced

Fitbit refreshes wearable line-up, launches four new devices

The battery life too is the same 4-days, which again is quite commendable.

The company also announced the new Inspire and Inspire HR activity wristbands that replace the Zip, Flex 2, High and High HR models.

Versa Lite's $160 cost seems created to get smartwatch technology onto more wrists at a lower price point than competitors like Apple Watch, which retails for $400 for its latest version.

The Fitbit Versa Lite Edition has a touch screen and offers a clear view of the outside.

The Inspire and Inspire HR come in multiple stylish colors.

The Inspire and Inspire HR are billed as something as a lower-priced follow up to the Alta, and indeed, if there's a theme to Fitbit's spring device lineup, it seems to be simplicity. The Inspire HR also features 24/7 heart rate monitoring, a Cardio Fitness Level tracker, sleep stage tracking and 15 goal-based modes. The new devices, Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, Fitbit Inspire, Fitbit Inspire HR and Fitbit Ace 2, have pricing ranging from $70 to $160.

These apart, another way the new versa Lite differs from its predecessor is the single physical key it comes with instead of three buttons for original Versa. These include most of the core fitness and smart features Versa is known for, including automatic activity, 24/7 heart rate, and Sleep Stages tracking, 15+ goal-based exercise modes, connected Global Positioning System, smartphone notifications, 4 day battery life and relative SpO2 sensor that can estimate changes in blood oxygen levels and help track new health indicators about health, such as sleep apnea. It has the essential health and fitness features to help you stay motivated, including automatic activity, exercise and sleep tracking, goal celebrations, Reminders to Move, and timer and stopwatch features to stay on track. The Ace 2 is an update to the company's existing child-friendly tracker. Ace 2 will have a new swim-proof design with a bumper to protect the screen during playtime. They are geared more towards people who are new to fitness tracking and are just starting out, looking for something simple and affordable.

The Versa Lite Edition is available for US$159.95 in white, lilac, mulberry and marina blue.

Designed for kids aged 6 and above, the Fitbit Ace 2 aids healthy habits through motivating challenges.

Fitbit's first smartwatch, the Ionic, cost $300 and received mediocre reviews. The cost of the Ace 2 band is Rs 6,999.
