Fitbit Enhances Smartwatch Experience with OS Update and Debuts Best Heart Rate Tracking Yet for Versa 2
New FitbitOS 4.1 update delivers enriched always-on display mode for Versa 2, innovative sleep tools like smart wake and more functionality right from your wrist
New advanced heart rate algorithm for Versa 2 uses machine learning to deliver best HR tracking yet
SAN FRANCISCO – November 13, 2019 – Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) today announced several new software updates, bringing advancements to its popular smartwatches so you can put your health and fitness goals front and center this Christmas and into the new year. The release of OS 4.1 for its smartwatches powers new sleep features and greater functionality right from your wrist. Fitbit Versa 2TM will boast an enriched always-on display mode, and a new advanced heart rate algorithm featuring the best tracking yet, all while giving you 6+ days of battery life to make the most of your days (and nights).
“Staying motivated to maintain your health and fitness routine is really hard around Christmas. We’re focused on making it more achievable through a combination of affordable devices, engaging software to help you stay on track,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit. “The new FitbitOS update gives users even more support with innovative smartwatch tools.”
More essentials, right on your wrist
The OS 4.1 update brings highly-anticipated features announced with Versa 2 to Fitbit Ionic™ as well as the entire Fitbit Versa™ family of smartwatches. Among the latest in Fitbit’s innovative sleep tools, OS 4.1 delivers smart wake, a silent on-device alarm you can set to wake you with subtle vibrations at an optimal time in your sleep cycle so you can start your day feeling more refreshed. You’ll also receive your nightly Sleep Score on-device, giving you a glanceable view of the quality of your night’s rest alongside all of your sleep stats and data.
OS 4.1 goes even further to help you maximize your day, adding more innovative new features that provide enhanced functionality and improved usability. The new agenda app will help you take on the day to live your best life and help manage your daily schedule on-the-go. One of the most requested updates, the new clock face switcher, lets you store up to five of your favorite clock faces from nearly 4,000 available in the Fitbit App Gallery directly on-device so you can quickly and easily swap clock faces to match your outfit, your activity or mood. A new five-star rating system has been updated within the Fitbit App Gallery, allowing users to rate and recommend their favorite apps and clock faces with the Fitbit user community.
Specific to Versa 2 users, Fitbit has doubled-down to enrich the recently-launched always-on display mode to deliver five additional clock face options. Now in color, these feature full health and fitness stats, with faster transitions between always-on and active views, all powered by the device’s AMOLED display, touting a 2+ day battery life. In fact, the battery life is so strong on Versa 2 that even when it’s in always-on display mode, it lasts more than double what that other smartwatch does, so you can keep tracking vs. charging.
Known for long battery life across all its devices, when you do finally need to charge, a new feature will kick-in to notify you when your battery is running low and automatically disable select features so your smartwatch can stay on your wrist, not the charger. That means you can do even more, 24/7, so even when you’re sleeping, your fitness companion is working hard for you to track your stats and equip you with useful information about your health and wellness. These updates, along with the full suite of Versa 2 features like 24/7 heart rate tracking, connected GPS, swimproof design, the Spotify app and Fitbit Pay™ are available across all Fitbit smartwatches.
Advanced heart rate algorithm uses machine learning to deliver best tracking yet
Fitbit’s advanced 24/7 PurePulse® heart rate tracking keeps users motivated and informed with an easy way to track your heart rate throughout the day. The technology also powers essential Fitbit features, such as Sleep Stages and Cardio Fitness Score, that provide you with deeper insights into your overall health and fitness.
Today Fitbit is announcing it has been working on a highly innovative algorithm that will deliver the best heart rate tracking experience yet on a Fitbit device to Versa 2 as part of the OS 4.1 software update. The new PurePulse algorithm, designed in-house by Fitbit R&D experts, uses machine learning to recognize the unique signature of heart rate in the optical sensor, leading to higher accuracy overall.
FitbitOS 4.1 will begin rolling out to Fitbit smartwatch users the first week of December, just in time for Christmas to stay on track with goals, and as you look ahead to set new ones in 2020.
