Should Apple be worried? Because Fitbit Sense is encroaching on Apple’s territory with its steep ₹34,999 price and features to rival the Cupertino giant. The Fitbit Sense comes with a promise of six day battery life for a plethora of tracking features. Heart rate and sleep monitoring have made their way here but Fitbit is also claiming the title to the world’s first electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor. You can place your palm over the face of the device to detect small electrical changes in the sweat level of your skin which measures your EDA responses. This helps to understand your body’s response to stressors and helps you manage your stress. It can even detect your skin temperature for signs of a fever, illness or the start of a new menstrual phase. Pretty neat. Fitbit Versa 3 (₹26,499) is dropping for serious fitness fanatics who want a dollop of smartwatch features too. The built-in speaker should make answering calls and reply to text with voice a breeze. The Fitbit Inspire 2 (₹10,999) is your traditional tracker with a host of tracking features. All three products will be available in the coming months. Fitbit hasn’t given us an exact date but we’ll update you when we get it. All these devices will work with a Fitbit Premium subscription that breaks down your activity and gives you a personalised report/analysis of your well-being with possible ways to improve it. Along with interesting challenges and guided programs.
