The first rumors of work underway on two new Fitbit smartwatches date back to last March, two months later the names of these devices were leaked, and today we can show you the first images of the expected Fitbit Sense 2 And Fitbit Versa 4.
Fitbit Sense 2: design and info from the leaked images
Fitbit Sense 2 it will be the brand’s new premium smartwatch and therefore the most advanced in terms of sensor equipment. The publicly available images from regulators show how the design is generally not too different from the 2020 model: it’s still a square smartwatch, but with rounded corners, and the renovation work mainly concerned the bezel.
In the first Fitbit Sense, there was a thin stainless steel ring around the screen where you can place your fingers for about 30 seconds to take advantage of the ECG function through the relevant app. Well, it looks like Fitbit has integrated the necessary components this time inside and under the display glass, which is therefore connected to the cash register without interruption. The sensor is still perfectly visible and therefore easy to distinguish for use, but the surface to touch is smooth and uniform.
The other big difference is the presence of a physical button on the left side. Some users had complained about the previous one, so the manufacturer decided to listen to the feedback.
Unlike the upper part, the lower part of the smartwatch is instead much less smooth, with much more visible metal cutouts, probably functional for the use of sensors. The pictures confirm the presence of the feature EKG on board the Fitbit Sense 2, which will not even lack a sensor for body temperature, GPS and water resistance up to 50 meters.
Fitbit Versa 4: design and info from the leaked images
The first images of the new one also come from the same source Fitbit Versa 4, which is set to be the brand’s next mainstream smartwatch. From the dedicated images, it is clear that the wearable will not be equipped with either an EKG or a body temperature sensor; instead, there is the microphone to take advantage of the Google Assistant voice assistant and for other functions such as registration of the night snore. There is no shortage of GPS and water resistance up to 50 meters, very important features for a sporty use of the device.
As for the design of the Fitbit Versa 4, the similarities to the model discussed in the previous section are very clear, including the new physical button. Furthermore, in light of the location of the pins, it seems possible to confirm with a good amount of certainty that the manufacturer will also confirm the same magnetic charger that has already been seen previously on the new models.
At present, there is no information about the probable time of the launch of the new Fitbit Versa 4 and Fitbit Sense 2 smartwatches, which are clearly performing all the usual practices necessary to obtain the various certifications. With the spring launch window now behind us, the most likely period for the official presentation and for the arrival on the market of the two new wearables seems to be at the end of summer and the beginning of the fall season; After all, Fitbit (i.e. Google) certainly doesn’t want to be caught unprepared during the most important shopping periods. It is not unlikely that the timing in question will also be examined in order not to obscure the autumn launch of the first Google smartwatch, which Google Pixel Watch predicted at the last developer conference, which will debut together with the Pixel 7 series. on the market, these products will in any case give rise to “internal” competition.
