Fitbit Inspire, Inspire HR Fitness Trackers Quietly Launched, Meant for Business Users

Following the company's return to profitability a year ago, the goal of expanding their corporate deals is likely a smart one, with consumers becoming more interested in full-fledged smartwatches with health features, and less with simpler fitness trackers. The slightly more advanced Inspire HR also offers heart rate tracking and Global Positioning System.

The Fitbit Inspire features daily activity and sleep tracking and alerts for calls, text, and calendar events. It comes with a touchscreen display and can be used while swimming.

Pacers sign veteran Wesley Matthews
The 32-year-old wing player signed with the Pacers on Sunday after he received a buyout from the Knicks, the team announced . In 45 games with Dallas, Matthews made 44 starts and averaged 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

While the Fitbit Inspire might not be the most innovative tracker that the company has ever put out, it could be important for the future of Fitbit: company orders could make up a significant chunk of future income as consumer sales tail off. The Fitbit Inspire HR can also track sleep stages (light, deep, REM) and can record real-time pace and distance via your smartphone's Global Positioning System. That means you're looking at an elongated monochrome brain in a rubber band, but the company says it can be worn as a clip to be hidden under clothing like the old Fitbit One (which if anything proved a little too discrete when it invariably ended its life in a 40-degree hot cycle).

"These special release trackers are available exclusively through Fitbit corporate, wellness, health plan, and health systems partners and customers of their organizations, participants, and members", Fitbit said on the official site for Inspire, though the product didn't get much of a flashy launch, probably because its heavy focus on commercial customers. A handful of pictures leaked by TechnoBuffalo reveal what appears to be a kid-friendly fitness tracker.
