Fitbit OS 5.1 adds Google Assistant integration to the Sense and Versa 3

The Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 smartwatches are receiving a new update that brings features like Google Assistant support, improved blood oxygen readings, and more.

The keen-eyed amongst you will have spotted that this means that both devices will now be able to offer Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, the latter of which was already available on the Versa 2 and 3. In fact, the bulk of these activities could only be achieved with your phone, as there is very little Google Assistant functionality in the watch itself- all voice prompts are routed via Bluetooth back to the phone for processing. The latest features are rolling out with the version Fitbit OS 5.1, that comes almost two months after the smartwatch maker released the Fitbit OS 5.0 for the two devices. It's rolling out a Fitbit OS 5.1 update in the USA starting 19 November 2020.

American consumer and fitness electronics company Fitbit has announced that Google Assistant will be part of some of its devices when its next firmware update commences. However, it may change with future Fitbit devices as the software giant is now in the process of buying Fitbit. Your smartwatch has a speaker, so you can hear Alexa's responses, rather than see them displayed. Once you've received Fitbit OS 5.1, you can switch to the Assistant in the Fitbit app, where you'll have to enter your Google account credentials to get started.

"As we head further into the flu season amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, keeping an eye on changes to your day-to-day health metrics is more important than ever", Fitbit co-founder and CEO James Park said in a prepared statement. Fitbit will also be adding seven new SpO2 clock faces dials by the end of the year. The Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit Sense users can answer calls directly via the built-in speakers and microphones.
