Here are the new Fitbit smartwatches – a sneak peek

On Tek you will find cases with advertisement links, where you can either buy the products we have mentioned or compare prices. We believe this is relevant information for our readers.

What products Tek will write about, and what we will write about, are chosen by journalists and no one else. But it is also important to know that if you click on this ad link to compare prices on Prisjakt, or buy a product after clicking on a store from one of our articles, Tek earns money. These ad links are always marked with an ‘ad link’ tag.

It’s important to stress that when we mention the products on Tek, it’s because we think they’re journalistically interesting. Nobody can buy publicity in our cases.

In tests or product manuals, the main rule at VG is that we buy or borrow the product. If this is not feasible, we base the review on the product samples we have sent. If so, we will tell you about the product and why.

We took a look at the new Versa 4 and Sense 2.

The Fitbit Sense 2 has an extended health sensor to be able to take EKG measurements, for example.  Otherwise, it is very similar to Versa 4. during the year IFA معرض Exhibition Much of the focus in the exhibition halls was directed towards environmental measures and foldable screens. But people’s health is still a hot topic, too, with Fitbit among the companies carrying the news in its bags.

True, two new watches of the company, Versa 4 and Sense 2, were launched before the show. But since we didn’t get to look at them during launch, it was a short walk from the podium to get a look at the new models.

If we start with the Versa 4, this has some noteworthy changes compared to the current version 3.

One obvious difference is that the physical button that was removed from the Versa 3 is now back on the new model. At the same time, the physical size of the watch itself has become somewhat smaller. But the screen size remains the same.

It’s also worth noting that this year’s new Versa 4 models come in several different colors than the Versa 3 did.

The Versa 4 has been closely linked to Google’s own Wear platform, after it purchased Google Fitbit some time ago. We’re told that, among other things, it gives you more options to make changes to your screen’s appearance, and that Google’s payment system is coming soon.

We’ve been experimenting with the watch a bit, despite not having it on hand, but the new platform seems to make the watch a little faster in use than before. As mentioned, the screen is the same, which means a good OLED screen that’s easy to read even in brightly lit rooms.

Most activity hours have some form of activity loop that you can fill out to let you know that you did something you didn't do for the day.  So does Fitbits.

Fitbit’s new top model will be the Sense 2, and the physical differences aren’t too big from the Versa 4. They’re very similar all the way around, both in terms of weight, size, battery and screen.

The big difference between the two lies in the number of sensors you get. Because here, the Sense 2 has more to offer than the Versa 4. You get, among other things, ECG and stress measurements that give you an indication of how things are going in everyday life.

The Sense 2 on the left has additional sensors that can tell how stressed you are, while the Versa 4 has the regular heart rate sensor.

Emphasize the goal by having the watch be able to see how much you are sweating, and based on that draw conclusions about how stressed you are.

Then it is up to you whether you are willing to pay an extra 700 kroner to get a Sense 2 instead of a Versa 4.

The first impression here on the show floor is that both watches look well designed and faster than before, so it will definitely be interesting to see how practical they are when we get them to test.
