The Fitbit Cost four is receiving its second main replace. Whereas the earlier one was targeted on positioning, this one (first noticed by Wareable) is all about well being information as a number of Fitbit Sense options have been ported over.
First off, the Cost four now reveals correct readings from its SpO2 sensor on the sensible band itself. You need to use the brand new blood-oxygen watch face to control that. Additionally, the band will now observe your pores and skin temperature (one thing solely the premium Sense watch might do).
Even higher, Fitbit is making the Well being Metrics dashboard free for Cost four, Versa 2 and Encourage 2 customers. Beforehand, you wanted a Fitbit Premium subscription to view the detailed biometric information (now together with respiration fee and coronary heart fee variability).
There’s a catch, although, free customers solely get to see the information for the final week. In the event you pay for Premium – that might be $10 a month or $80 a 12 months – you get to see information for the final month.
The Fitbit app can now additionally observe your glucose degree. It is advisable to enter that manually into the app as Fitbit doesn’t (but) have a tool to trace glucose ranges routinely. Nonetheless, this creates a helpful log, which assist customers determine patterns over time.
In the meantime, Fitbit is increasing the supply of the ECG characteristic for Sense house owners. It might probably now be utilized in Canada, New Zealand and US territories. This was already out there to customers within the US mainland and choose areas in Europe and Asia (it’s a matter of regulatory approval).
