Fitbit Versa Lite Edition is now Fitbit’s cheapest smartwatch

Fitbit introduces new Inspire ($70) and Inspire HR ($100), Versa Lite ($160), and Ace 2 for kids ($70)

Fitbit introduces new Inspire ($70) and Inspire HR ($100), Versa Lite ($160), and Ace 2 for kids ($70)

But it's not the only tracker the company is announcing today.

But the Fitbit Versa Lite Edition isn't the only new Fitbit and despite its name it's also not the cheapest of the new arrivals.

This is the Versa Lite Edition in Lilac.

The Inspire HR adds several more features to its list over the Inspire like the Alta HR did over Alta, including heart rate tracking. However, it skips the altimeter (it can't measure floors climbed), swim laps monitoring, music storage, and on-screen workouts with the Fitbit Coach.

The Fitbit Inspire HR will cost £89.99, while the Fitbit Inspire will cost £69.99 and both will be available at some point this month. The company is also introducing tons of new watchbands to customize the look of the Versa family.

German Ambassador expelled from Venezuela after supporting 'interim President' Juan Guaido
At the country's main airport, Kriener spoke to journalists and said he hoped the leader of the National Assembly would be safe. There were concerns that the opposition leader might face detention, but Mr Maduro's government did not move against him.

You can also pop the tracker out of the bumper and pop it into bands for the new Inspire and Inspire HR, so should your kid get exhausted of the kiddy look, they can go for something a little more adult eventually. Fitbit says the battery on the Inspire and Inspire HR is good for up to five days of continuous use, but as always, that quoted battery life will vary from user to user. Better yet, like the older Fitbit One, the Inspire can be removed from its band and placed in a clip, so you can wear it inconspicuously under your clothing if you prefer.

As the names suggest, the main difference is a heart rate monitor integrated into the pricier model, enabling 24/7 tracking of that crucial health parameter, as well as other neat features like cardio fitness scores, real-time pace & distance (with the help of your phone's Global Positioning System chip), sleep stages, guided breathing sessions, and various goal-based exercise modes.

The band will be available soon in two colors (Watermelon/Teal and Night sky/Neon), plus optional printed bands.

In addition to the four new trackers, Fitbit announced a major redesign to its mobile app that should make it easier to view your stats, but also put more emphasis on the community, challenges, and tips/recommendations.

Other features include automatic exercise tracking, a cardio fitness level and female health tracking. Read about these new products below. Currently, Deezer, Adidas, and Blue Apron appear to be taking part of the initiative.
