Fitbit is ready to attack the premium market with the new Fitbit Sense, its most advanced health smartwatch, says the company. Given the merits that the Apple Watch has received in terms of health monitoring functions, Fitbit decided that it could not be further behind.
Therefore, Fitbit Sense is equipped with several additional sensors in addition to the normal ones, such as skin temperature meters and electrocardiogram function. Health is a sensitive topic in 2020, due to the global pandemic and Fitbit wants its technology to assert itself as an aid in everyday life.
Probably the most interesting feature of this Fitbit Sense is the EDA function, a detector that uses the skin’s electrical impulses to record data. The user places the palm of the hand on the watch face, where the system analyzes the levels of sweat on the skin.
The system is supposed to return biometric data about the user, including quality of sleep, heart rate and exercise level. Fitbit Sense will be a whole wellness and health monitoring tool. Fitbit wants the device to be used to measure stress, although this is too subjective to be analyzed by a watch.
Still, Fitbit Sense can be a device with the potential to help users create more favorable routines, such as meditation and exercise. In addition, being a smart watch, all data is recorded for later consultation. Fitbit Sense arrives in September with a value around $ 330.
