Fitbit would like to bring a Fitbit first Smartwatch to the market this year and now the first picture of this (and the new headset) is also on the net.
The wearable company Fitbit is mainly known for its fitness tracker has done itself in recent months but hard with a Smartwatch. These models, however, are also in the trend and therefore one would like to bring in the autumn a competitor for the Apple Watch and Co on the market.
The model was actually planned for the spring, but there were problems with the development of project “Higgs”. A very bright display (1000 bits), GPS, NFC, a pulse meter and possibly an IP certification (it is still uncertain if the final model will be waterproof) are currently on the list.
Fitbit wanted to win Spotify as a music partner but had to be satisfied with Pandora. You can store music locally on the Smartwatch.
Fitbit first Smartwatch costs almost 300 euros
Visually, Fitbit has oriented itself to the Surge and Blaze. This fitness tracker has a watch design, however barely smart features. However, we do not yet know how the functionality of the first Smartwatch will look. Fitbit should have worked on his own OS. We do not have a name yet.
In price terms, we will move at 300 dollars (that is, nearly 300 euros) and Fitbit would like to offer separate tapes for the Smartwatch. This could be a bit expensive because in this price class Fitbit expects hard competition. On the other hand, Fitbit will make a lot of advertising for the model.
In addition to the Smartwatch, the Bluetooth headset “Parkside” is planned, which costs 150 dollars and is available in two retails.
