San Francisco (ots) -

  • Fitbit also launches Versa 3, now with GPS and speakers; Inspire 2 comes with a streamlined design and Active Zone Minutes (AZM).
  • Fitbit Premium launches in Germany with a new health metrics dashboard and partner content for the mindfulness app 7Mind and Greator, the platform for personality development [3].

Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) announced today that it brings cutting-edge sensor and software technology to market with Fitbit Sense, the company's most advanced health smartwatch. This includes the world's first sensor for electrodermal activity (EDA) built into a smartwatch to support stress management. In addition, the smartwatch has advanced technology for heart rate measurement, a new ECG app [2], a skin temperature sensor on the wrist [4] and a battery life of more than 6 days [5]. In conjunction with a free six-month trial subscription to Fitbit Premium [6], an extension of the Fitbit app that is being launched in Germany, you can use the new Health Metrics dashboard to track important trends for your health and well-being such as heart rate variability, respiratory rate and SpO2 Track values. [3] Fitbit is also introducing Fitbit Versa 3 with new health, fitness and voice control features such as GPS and Google Assistant integration. [7] In addition, Fitbit has improved its cheapest tracker, Fitbit Inspire 2, increased the battery life to over 10 days [5], added extended health and fitness functions such as active zone minutes and combined it with a one-year free premium trial subscription. By making these powerful tools available and affordable for everyone, the Fitbit platform is helping users better understand and manage their health in this unprecedented time.

"Our mission to make everyone in the world healthier has never been more important. COVID-19 has shown us all the importance of taking care of our physical and mental health and wellbeing" said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit. "Our new products and services are our most innovative to date. They combine our most advanced sensor technologies and algorithms to provide more information about the body and health. We enable users to stay in control. We are breaking new ground in the field of wearables and helping You will better understand and manage factors such as stress and heart health. We bring your most important health data together in a simple and traceable way to record values ​​such as skin temperature, heart rate variability and SpO2. So you can see how everything is connected. [ 3] Most importantly, we provide access to your health and provide you with new data that you would otherwise only get once or twice a year from your doctor, so that now when it is particularly urgent you can get your take care of holistic health and wellbeing. "

Coping with Stress for Better Health

Stress is a global problem: one in three people suffers from great anxiety, stress or psychological and physiological symptoms caused by stress. [8] If left unchecked, stress can lead to a variety of health problems, including an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and mental disorders such as anxiety or depression. [9] Through the combined experience on the device and in the app, Fitbit Sense gives you insights into your body's reaction to stress and provides you with tools that you can use to cope with physical and mental stress. This unique experience in dealing with stress was developed by Fitbit's team of experts, made up of behavioral practitioners with decades of experience in diagnosing and treating mental disorders. In addition, advice from medical experts was sought from leading academic institutions.

Fitbit Sense's new EDA sensor measures electrodermal activity directly on the wrist. When you place your palm on the front of the device, it will detect small electrical changes on your skin. [10] This can help you understand your body's response to stressors and help you manage stress. You can do a quick EDA scan to watch your reactions or combine it with guided mindfulness exercises in the Fitbit app to see how your body reacts during meditation or relaxation. At the end of each exercise, an EDA response graph is displayed on the device and on the mobile app [11] to help you measure your progress over time and to encourage you to reflect on your emotional stress.

Fitbit's new Stress Management Index calculates your daily physical stress level based on your heart health, sleep and activity data. It is available exclusively with Fitbit Sense and is located in the new stress tile in the Fitbit app. Values ​​range from 1 to 100, with a higher value meaning your body is showing fewer physical signs of stress. The score is linked to recommendations for better stress management, e.g. breathing exercises and other mindfulness tools. Fitbit Premium members receive a detailed breakdown for calculating the score, which lists over 10 pieces of biometric data, including exercise balance (effects of activity), responsiveness (heart rate, heart rate variability and electrodermal activity from the EDA scan app) and sleep patterns (sleep quality).

All Fitbit users have access to the new mindfulness tile in the Fitbit app. [12] Here you can set a weekly mindfulness goal and reminders, reflect on your stress levels, record your mood after the exercise sessions, and meditate as part of your mindfulness practice. Premium members can choose from meditation sessions from the mindfulness app 7Mind, listen to various relaxation music from Fitbit and see how the exercises affect their mood over time.

"Regular meditation has both physical and emotional benefits, from reducing stress and symptoms such as anxiety and depression to supporting cardiovascular health such as improving blood pressure and heart rate," explains Dr. Helen Weng, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. "Meditation is an exercise for the mind. As with physical activity, consistent practice is required to develop the mental ability to meditate. However, positive effects can be seen in as little as 5 minutes a day. It is important to find a meditation practice that works for you to have long-term health and wellness benefits and to better understand the signals the body sends during times of stress or illness. Fitbit can help you achieve this with mindfulness content and tools like the new stress management Index and the EDA scan app. These will allow you to see your progress and build a personalized meditation practice that is effective and sustainable. "

Take control of your heart health

Fitbit Sense is part of a new era in the company's heart health innovation. Fitbit pioneered this area by offering the first 24-hour heart rate tracking on the wrist in 2014 and introducing active zone minutes earlier this year. [13] Fitbit Sense is the company's first device to feature an EKG app, 2 that allows you to check your heart rhythm for signs of atrial fibrillation, which affects more than 33.5 million people worldwide. [14] Simply hold your fingers on the stainless steel ring around the clock for 30 seconds to get a reading that you can download and send to your doctor.

Fitbit's new PurePulse 2.0 technology with a brand new reusable heart rate sensor and updated algorithm represents the company's most advanced heart rate technology to date. It also supports another important heart health feature - personalized high and low heart rate notifications on the device. [15] If you wear Fitbit devices around the clock, your heart rate data can be continuously analyzed. As soon as you exceed your thresholds, this will be easily detected and you will receive a notification on Fitbit Sense. [16] A high or low heart rate can indicate a heart condition that needs medical evaluation, such as bradycardia (heart rate too slow) or tachycardia (heart rate too fast). [17]

Track your most important health data for better wellbeing

Not only is Fitbit able to detect heart conditions like atrial fibrillation, but it also brings together new health data in the mobile app, which you can use to identify trends and changes in your wellbeing. Fitbit Sense has a new skin temperature sensor that can detect changes that could indicate a fever, illness, or the beginning of a new menstrual phase. [18] In contrast to an instantaneous temperature measurement, this sensor tracks the fluctuations in your skin temperature overnight in order to better recognize small changes over time. This is a quick way to tell if something is outside of your norm.

Get the most out of Fitbit

Fitbit Sense also includes all the important health, fitness and smart functions of the other Fitbit smartwatches, including integrated GPS, more than 20 training modes on the device, automatic SmartTrack® activity tracking, cardio fitness level and score, and advanced Sleep tools. Stay connected with a range of smart features that add convenience: including a built-in speaker and microphone to take calls and reply to text messages using voice commands, [19] Amazon or Google voice assistants, contactless payments [20], thousands apps and watch faces, etc. - all with an impressive battery life of more than 6 days. [5]

Smart design for maximum performance, style and comfort

Fitbit Sense was created using many unique and innovative design processes, such as miniaturized nano-molding and laser-bonding technology. This has allowed us to create our most powerful and intelligent device to date. Fitbit Sense offers a new design language that is inspired by the human body and combines appealing silhouettes with a beautiful shape and functional materials. The surfaces are physically and visually light, of high quality and durable. Aviation-grade aluminum and stainless steel ensure a polished high-tech look. The new Infinity Bands are flexible and comfortable, and offer a secure fit for better sensor performance. The quick-release fastener makes it easier to change the look, for example if you want to wear a different look during the day than in the evening. The robot-made housing consists of glass and metal fused together, using techniques from submarine construction to ensure water resistance up to 50 m. The biosensor core contained therein houses most of the sensors of all Fitbit devices. It contains most of the intelligence of a Fitbit smartwatch, while users benefit from the sleek aesthetics and long battery life at the same time.

The larger AMOLED display has an integrated ambient light sensor for automatic dimming of the screen for better visibility and an optional permanently active display mode. [21] The almost borderless display reacts faster, has a brighter screen and a higher resolution. The user interface and faster processor have been completely redesigned to offer our most intuitive and focused on-screen navigation. New customizable widgets have been introduced, and notifications and screen apps have been created for greater clarity. At the same time, you can customize your favorite tools and shortcuts for more personalized information and a smooth smartwatch experience. You can find more information about Fitbit Sense here.

Fitbit Versa 3 - More that you'll love

Fitbit is also launching Fitbit Versa 3, adding new health and convenience features to the company's most popular smartwatch family. Integrated GPS, exercise intensity map, improved PurePulse 2.0 technology and active zone minutes make it easier than ever to track your fitness goals and not just count your daily steps. Versa 3 offers even more smart functions for additional convenience, including a built-in speaker and microphone that you can use to make quick calls, send calls to voicemail and adjust the call volume - all from your wrist.19 You can choose between different voice assistants: In addition to Amazon Alexa Built-in you can also choose Google Assistant [22]. You can set reminders for your workouts, mindfulness exercises or bedtime, check the weather forecast, add hand sanitiser to your shopping list, control your smart home devices, etc. All of this by speaking to your smartwatch. Use Fitbit Pay, 21 to make fast, secure payments without touching any public surface and access thousands of apps and watch faces. New curated playlists from music partners Deezer, Pandora and Spotify make it easy to choose the right music for your workout intensity. [23] The updated design and user interface are based on Fitbit Sense, with smoother lines, increased comfort, greater responsiveness, and faster, more effortless interactions. All Fitbit Versa 3 features are also available on Fitbit Sense. You can find more information about Fitbit Versa 3 here.

For the first time, both Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit Sense use the same magnetic charger. Each device has a long battery life of more than 6 days. When the battery is almost empty, you can continue using the device for a full day after a 12-minute quick charge. [24] Cross-compatible accessories include a simple, quick-release strap fastener that is available in many different colors and styles, including in designer partnerships with Pendleton and Victor Glemaud. The Pendleton ribbons are patterned and woven. They reflect the brand's bond with nature and Native American style. The Victor Glemaud collection shows the playful, gender-neutral, body-positive approach of the Haiti-born designer in sustainable knitwear with a striking design.

Get even more with Fitbit Inspire 2

The Fitbit Inspire 2 builds on the success of the company's stylish, yet affordable Fitbit Inspire and Inspire HR trackers. It offers advanced features such as active zone minutes, an improved, stylish, slim design and a brighter, more colorful screen, as well as the longest battery life of any Fitbit device (10 days). [5] The user-friendly fitness tracker helps you develop healthy habits with motivating functions.

In addition, you will receive encouraging messages directly on your wrist every day.

Fitbit Premium Service starts in Germany

Fitbit today announced the launch of Fitbit Premium in Germany, a paid subscription service in the Fitbit® app that offers users the most personal Fitbit experience yet with individual insights. With helpful instructions and coaching, Fitbit Premium motivates you to achieve your own health and fitness goals. The offering is based on more than 10 years of experience and uses academic and medical expertise to help users move more and sleep better. This includes personal insights, numerous workouts, extended sleep functions, mindfulness exercises, new challenges, an individual health report and much more - all in one place and individually tailored to the individual user. Fitbit Premium is available to every Fitbit user via in-app purchase and is included for new Premium users when purchasing the Fitbit Sense for 6 months and when purchasing the Fitbit Inspire 2 for 12 months.

Fitbit's most individual solution to date

Fitbit Premium will include guided health and fitness modules that will help users sleep more restfully, start the day full of energy, increase their own activity levels and adopt healthy behaviors over the long term. The offer includes daily tips and tricks, training units, coaching, relaxation tools and an individualized health report that contains all important health statistics. Fitbit will launch more activity, sleep, and nutrition programs in the future. Regardless of their own health or fitness level, users always have additional options available with which their own goals can be achieved.

All Fitbit users who use the free app will also receive learning content and tips to help them stay engaged, informed, and motivated. With Premium, the analyzes and tips in the Fitbit app are personalized. Trends in the individual Fitbit statistics of the users are made visible so that the user can see when he is on the right track. Otherwise, the user receives tips on how to make their own habits better and healthier. In addition, connections between the tracked values ​​are shown: For example, users find out to what extent the quality of their own sleep has improved if they were particularly active during the day. Statistics on activity, sleep, and heart rate are currently being analyzed, but more data will be added over time to provide more insight.

  • "A consistent bedtime is important! The time you go to bed varies by more than 40 minutes from day to day. Try to go to sleep at the same time every evening to get enough sleep."
  • "In the past week you took 8,376 more steps than your last weekly average of 56,792 steps. Your resting heart rate has dropped 2 beats per minute compared to your monthly average of 67 beats per minute. Keep up the good work!"

Motivation for more exercise

In addition to extended, individual analyzes and findings, the premium membership offers access to numerous dynamic video and audio workouts by certified personal trainers, known from the Fitbit Coach app, as well as qualified fitness influencers. The workouts are selected individually and according to your own fitness goals and can be completed anytime and anywhere.

New local collaborations complement the premium offer

Fitbit also cooperates with an exclusive selection of German companies that also contribute content for Fitbit Premium:

Numerous mindfulness exercises and meditations of the mindfulness app 7Mind are available to premium users for the launch in Germany. The contents last between five and thirty minutes and include basic exercises on the subject of mindfulness, sleep stories, as well as meditations on the subjects of sleep and stress. Fitbit and 7Mind are pursuing the common goal of strengthening the mental fitness of their users in addition to physical fitness and using simple tools to help them sleep better and generally become more mindful and relaxed. The partners are also interested in promoting a holistic understanding of health that includes exercise and nutrition as well as sleep hygiene and stress management.

In cooperation with the company Greator, Germany's largest platform for personality development, Fitbit Premium also offers its own users content from the field of coaching. Our shared mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves and to take their life - and health - into their own hands. The content that can be used as part of Fitbit Premium includes short motivating and inspiring video and audio sequences that simply give you that special positive kick in the everyday life or in the morning to wake you up.

In addition, the offer will also be expanded in the future with exciting partner content.

New health report for proactive health management

Fitbit provides additional tools in Fitbit Premium that link the individual health and fitness data of the user in such a way that their own health can be better controlled: With a health report, users can easily forward their Fitbit data to their family doctor, nutritionist or personal trainer forward in order to have more informed conversations. Selected experts participated in the development of the health report, which is available with Premium, including general practitioners and emergency doctors, intensive care and sleep medicine specialists as well as medical specialists from leading institutions such as the University of California. The report provides an easy-to-understand overview of your own health and fitness data and includes detailed analyzes and diagrams on trends relating to activity, heart rate, sleep and weight. Over time, we will add additional metrics, trends and analyzes to the health report.

New Health Metrics Dashboard in Premium tracks skin temperature fluctuations and more

Fitbit Premium's new Health Metrics dashboard goes one step further. It helps you track breathing rate (average breaths per minute), resting heart rate (an important indicator of cardiovascular health), heart rate variability (variation in time between each heartbeat) and fluctuations in skin temperature (through the dedicated sensor on Sense and existing sensors in all Fitbit smartwatches). [25] If you are a Premium Member with a compatible device, [26] these daily metrics and trends are shown over time so you can see how they affect your wellbeing. For Fitbit smartwatch owners, we also offer new insights into the SpO2 values ​​(oxygen saturation of the blood). [27] Various free SpO2 dials show both the previous night's SpO2 range and the nightly average. Premium members can track SpO2 trends over time on the Health Metrics dashboard to get cues of important changes in their fitness and wellbeing.

Initial results from our COVID-19 study suggest that changes to some of the metrics included in the new Premium Dashboard, such as breathing rate, resting heart rate, and heart rate variability, can be detected by Fitbit devices concurrently with the onset of COVID-19 symptoms, in some cases even before.

"We believe that wearables can play an important role in the early detection of infectious diseases by acting as an early warning system for our bodies. This is critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19 and better understanding the progression of the disease," said Eric Friedman, Co-Founder and CTO of Fitbit. "To date, over 100,000 Fitbit users have joined the study. We found that we can detect nearly 50 percent of COVID-19 cases the day before symptoms appear with a specificity of 70 percent. This research looks promising to But better understanding and detecting COVID-19 can also serve as a model for future detection of other diseases and health problems. "

New project with rehabilitation provider MEDIAN

Fitbit is increasingly focusing on health issues. As part of a pilot project, Fitbit is cooperating with the largest German rehabilitation provider MEDIAN and is committed to providing the best possible support for patients on their way to a healthy body. Within their rehab program, cardiac patients are motivated to move more by tracking the daily active minutes and the steps taken. The doctor to be treated will then precisely assess the progress of your performance. The project is initially starting in the pilot phase at two clinics, with the aim of expanding the partnership to other MEDIAN rehabilitation centers.
