Fitbit is about to launch three new devices – the Fitbit Versa 4, Sense 2, and Inspire 3 – and new government listings spotted by Advnture reveal that the three could arrive any day now.
It's been an open secret for some time that these three watches are on their way. As 9to5Google (opens in new tab) reports, renders of the trio leaked earlier this month, showing designs that are very similar to their predecessors. Now, however, we can say with confidence that they're nearly ready to fasten around your wrist and start tracking your daily workouts.
Before it can be sold in the US, any device capable of wireless communications (such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) must be registered with the Federal Communications Commission, which will examine and test it to make certain that it meets standards and won't cause interference with other equipment. Today (August 12), three listings have appeared for new Fitbit devices, showing that the new Versa, Sense, and Inspire are nearly ready.
Three, two, one...
The listings (XRAFB521 (opens in new tab), XRAFB523 (opens in new tab), and XRAFB424 (opens in new tab)) don't give official names for the devices, but the leaked renders mean we're 99% sure what they are.
Not much is known about the three watches' specifications yet, but both the Versa 4 and Sense 2 appear to have a new physical button on one edge (rather than the touch-sensitive controls of their predecessors), while the Inspire 3 has received a major upgrade with a new color display. There's no indication of whether it will have its own GPS module for tracking runs and walks without piggybacking on your phone, but since it appears to have the same super slim case as the Inspire 2, we doubt it.
We'll keep our ears to the ground for more news and bring you further info as soon as we have it.
