Fitbit Sense: Fitness Smartwatch presented for 329.95 euros
Fitbit today announced its new fitness smartwatch, the Sense. The price goes up a bit, because the wearable should change hands for 329.95 euros. Fitbit wants to offer a lot for this – such as the EKG measurement (initially only USA) and EDA scans, which measure the electrodermal activity of the skin and can thus provide conclusions about your current stress level.
A heart rate monitor is logically on board. Fitbit also advertises the scythe with its stainless steel housing and integrated GPS, which should be very helpful to athletes. Because then the running route can be recorded correctly even without a smartphone. The smartwatch can also warn you if your heart rate is particularly high or low. The smartwatch also tracks sleep or REM phases and also has the new active zone minutes – see also my test of the Charge 4.
The Fitbit Sense can measure your skin temperature, even at night, to provide information on health. The purchase price also includes 6 months of Fitbit Premium. This gives you extended statistics and, for example, access to video workouts and more. The smartwatch also forwards notifications to you and, thanks to the microphone and speaker, even allows calls to be made directly on the wrist – but a connection to the smartphone is still necessary.
The Sense can record over 20 workouts – automatically via SmartTrack or when you start it manually. Swimming is also possible because the smartwatch is waterproof to a depth of 50 meters. You can also use the scythe to use the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to e.g. For example, you can call up the weather or control smart home devices. According to Fitbit, music can also be controlled directly on the Sense via Spotify and Deezer.
The Fitbit Sense is based on an AMOLED display, protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and should offer up to 6 days of battery life. All kinds of different bracelets are also planned – the bracelets of the new Versa 3 will also be compatible with the Fitbit Sense. You can pre-order the new fitness smartwatch from today. The Sense should be available in stores from the end of September 2020.
Accessories for Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 are available separately and in different versions, including woven Repreve recycling ribbons in the colors dark gray, coral, camouflage and rainbow as well as sports ribbons in the colors black / moon white, camouflage green / moon white, gray / mint green, melon / Rose and sapphire / fog gray, infinity bands in the colors black, moon white, midnight blue and old pink, from € 24.95.
