Fitbit updates its Sense 2, Versa 4 and Inspire 3 watches with Google Wallet and road navigation

DAY

Let's just say it's taken a while to upgrade Fitbit watches with solutions that have been around for a long time from the competition. Recall that Fitbit is a brand officially owned by Google since January 2021, but announced earlier in 2019. 

Originally, the best arguments for these watches were limited to monitoring sports activities, their great autonomy and their lightness. But this is no longer enough to ensure sales in line with the ambitions of a giant like Google.

The Sense 2, Inspire 2 and Versa 3 models were all launched in 2020 and only the Charge models&nbsp ;5 and Luxe appeared in the meantime.

The Versa 4 watch

Regarding the Sense 2 and Versa 4 watches, the new models will be able to connect to Google Maps and indicate turn-by-turn directions directly to your wrist. They will also have access to Google Wallet contactless payment.

The Sense 2 watch has a body response sensor capable of measuring electrodermal activity and stress reactions.

< p>To exploit all the capabilities of the watches and the services offered by Fitbit, the Fitbit Premium subscription (the first six months free of charge) brings sleep tracking with ten different measurements and a stress management score.

The Inspire 3 watch

The Inspire 3, the manufacturer's entry-level watch, offers a slimmer design, solid 10-day battery life, but no new payment features without contact or navigation  GPS.
