Fitbit has made several new software updates and advancements to its popular smartwatches and Fitbit Premium membership service.
The new FitbitOS update – version 4.1 – for its smartwatches powers new sleep features and greater functionality right from your wrist.
The recently released Fitbit Versa™ 2 will boast an enriched always-on display mode, now in colour, showing features like full health and fitness stats, with faster transitions between always-on and active views, all powered by the device’s AMOLED display.
A new advanced heart rate algorithm featuring the best tracking yet, all while giving you 6+ days of battery life to make the most of your days and nights.
Fitbit is also continuing to roll out new content and tools to enhance your Fitbit Premium membership, including a personal wellness report, developed in consultation with leading medical professionals from institutions like the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, San Francisco.
In coming months, Fitbit will also roll out new programs, challenges and wellness content, plus workouts from popular global brands like Daily Burn, Down Dog, Gaiam, POPSUGAR and Whil.
More essentials, right on your wrist
Among the latest in Fitbit’s innovative sleep tools, OS 4.1 delivers smart wake, a silent on-device alarm you can set to wake you with subtle vibrations at an optimal time in your sleep cycle so you can start your day feeling more refreshed.
You’ll also receive your nightly Sleep Score on-device, giving you a glanceable view of the quality of your night’s rest alongside all of your sleep stats and data.
OS 4.1 goes even further to help you maximise your day, adding more innovative new features that provide enhanced functionality and improved usability.
The new agenda app will help you take on the day to live your best life and help manage your daily schedule on-the-go.
One of the most requested updates, the new clock face switcher, lets you store up to five of your favourite clock faces from nearly 4,000 available in the Fitbit App Gallery directly on-device so you can quickly and easily swap clock faces to match your outfit, your activity or mood.
These updates, along with the full suite of Versa 2 features like 24/7 heart rate tracking, connected GPS, swim-proof design, the Spotify app and Fitbit Pay™ are available across all Fitbit smartwatches.
FitbitOS 4.1 will begin rolling out to Fitbit smartwatch users in the first week of December. Fitbit Premium members can already access and enjoy many of the latest updates, with the rest rolling out on an ongoing basis in the coming months.
