Fitbit unveils new Fitbit Versa smartwatch and Fitbit Ace activity tracker for kids

Fitbit has announced two new products –  the Fitbit Versa, a modern smartwatch, and the Fitbit Ace, the company’s very first wearable that’s designed especially for kids.

The Fitbit Versa will be an Apple Watch competitor when it launches in April.

The device will be Fitbit’s lightest smartwatch with a sharp easy-to-read screen and changeable bands.

Fitbit Versa, which will be priced at $299.95, will have a four-day battery life along with 24/7 heart rate monitoring and the ability to upload music for phone-free listening.

It will also be able to provide personalised on-screen workouts that can coach you through each exercise.

Uses will also be able to track specific workouts in more than 15 different exercise modes whether you’re on the road or in the gym.

And, of course, Fitbit Versa will also be able to track your sleep and relay notifications from your smartphone as well.

The Fitbit Ace is an activity tracker designed just for kids aged eight and older.

Parents will be able to set up a family account as well as an account for their child and see all their activity and progress.
