Smartphones may have dominated the news this week, but Fitbit, creators of the Fitbit Ultra smart fitness tracker and the Fitbit Aria smart wireless scale, today unveiled two new fitness trackers (which will both sync to said smartphones, by the way).
First up is the Fitbit Zip. It’s a petite tracker (about the size of a quarter coin) that comes in five fun colors and measures your everyday activity stats in real time, including steps taken, distance traveled and calories burned. It has a unique tap interface to switch between different stats and is “oops-proof”, meaning it’ll survive a stroll through the rain or a good sweat.
Fitbit’s second new product is the Fitbit One. The Fitbit One will actually be replacing the Fitbit Ultra, but has been updated to make it even better. It still has all of the features of the Fitbit Ultra, such as tracking your steps and calories, monitoring your sleep, and gently waking you up with its silent alarm. But the Fitbit One has been redesigned to make it even more sleek, easier to read, and easier to wear.
As we mentioned earlier, both the Fitbit Zip and One will be able to sync to iOS and Android devices and smartphones equipped with the new, low-energy Bluetooth 4.0 and Bluetooth Smart Ready technology, but iOS users will have the added capability of being able to sync their stats on the go. Of course, both the Fitbit Zip and One will integrate with the Fitbit.com online tracking portal which contains social networking and motivational tools.
Fitbit Zip is available now for $59.95, and Fitbit One will be available soon for $99.95.
