Fitbit unveils Sense 2, Versa 4 and Inspire 3 in smartwatch and fitness tracker refresh

It’s been a hot minute since Fitbit really showed off an updated wearable that wasn’t a slim fitness tracker. The Sense, Inspire 2 and Versa 3 all debuted in 2020, with only the Charge 5 and Luxe coming out between then and now. Today, however, the Google-owned company is sharing details about a trio of new devices: the Inspire 3, Versa 4, and Sense 2. As usual, Fitbit’s focus is on convenience and battery life, as well as some much-needed additions for life on the go.

It makes sense to talk about the Sense 2 and Versa 4 as a unit, as both are getting plenty of useful iterative updates. Both offer continuous heart rate monitoring paired with activity, stress, and sleep tracking, and come with over six days of battery life. But these new models will also soon hook into Google Maps, so you can see turn-by-turn directions on your wrist. The couple will also get access to Google Wallet, and while it’s not mentioned in the release, you’d think Fitbit Pay would be left behind as a result. The Sense 2 also features a continuous electrodermal activity sensor, similar to that of the Charge 5. Oh, and the pusher that was cut out of the Versa 3 has returned for the 4.

Given that wearable hardware is very popular these days, Fitbit is naturally hoping it has an edge over its competitors on the software and services side. Premium subscribers with both devices can take a look at the Sleep Profile, which uses 10 different metrics to understand how you’re sleeping and gives you ways to improve your sleep. Similarly, a stress management score will help you keep track of your tension at work and tell you when to take a breather.

The Sense 2 and Versa 4 are available to order now, with the former returning $299.95 and the latter $229.95 – buyers can expect a six-month trial of Fitbit Premium – with deliveries expected to start in the fall.

Meanwhile, the Inspire 3 tracker is the company’s newest entry-level device, with a sleek design, 10 days of battery life, and six months of Premium thrown in on top. As before, don’t expect many of the Gee Whizz features found on Fitbit’s other devices, and you’ll be relying fairly heavily on the companion app to log your vital stats and check your vital signs. That will set you back $99.95 and will start shipping sometime in September.
