Fitbit Sense : World’s Most Advanced Health Smartwatch?

Fitbit Sense is said to be the most advanced health smartwatch in 2020, featuring the world’s first EDA sensor in a smartwatch!

Find out what else is new about the Fitbit Sense, its key features, as well as its price and availability!

 

Fitbit Sense : World’s Most Advanced Health Smartwatch?

Unveiled today, 26 August 2020, the Fitbit Sense introduced the world’s first electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor in a smartwatch, to help manage stress.

On top of that, it comes with advanced heart rate tracking technology, a new ECG app and an on-wrist skin temperature sensor.

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) Sensor

The new EDA sensor in Fitbit Sense measures electrodermal activity responses, just by placing your palm over the watch face.

Measuring your EDA responses using the EDA Scan app can help you understand your body’s response to stressors, and help you manage stress.

You can also pair it with guided mindfulness sessions in the Fitbit app to see how your body’s EDA responses change with meditation and relaxation.

Track your EDA responses on a graph on-device, as well as in the mobile app, to gauge your progress over time.

Fitbit Stress Management Score

Fitbit is also introducing a new Stress Management Score, which is available in the new stress management tile in the Fitbit Sense.

Your Fitbit Sense can calculate how your body is responding to stress based on heart rate, sleep, and activity level data, giving you a Stress Management Score ranging from 1-100.

A higher score would indicate that your body is showing fewer physical signs fo stress. Fitbit Premium members will get a detailed breakdown on how the score is calculated based on over 10 biometric input :

  • exertion balance (impact of activity),
  • responsiveness (heart rate, heart rate variability and electrodermal activity), and
  • sleep patterns (sleep quality)

Improved Heart Care Technologies

Fitbit Sense is their first smartwatch to feature an ECG app to assess your heart rhythm for signs of atrial fibrillation – a condition that affects more than 33.5 million people globally.

Simply hold your fingers on the corners of the stainless steel ring around the watch, and hold still for 30 seconds!

Fitbit Sense also comes with PurePulse 2.0 technology, with an all-new multi-path heart rate sensor, and updated algorithm.

This improved heart rate technology powers other critical heart health features like personalised, on-device high and low heart rate notifications.

With 24/7 continuous heart rate tracking, Fitbit Sense can detect and send a notification if your heart rate falls outside normal thresholds.

Design + Build

The Fitbit Sense are built to last, using aerospace-grade aluminium and stainless steel for that polished, high-tech look, and water resistance – at up to 50 meters.

It comes with a larger AMOLED display, which not only has a higher resolution but is also more responsive. It also comes with an integrated ambient light sensor to automatically dim the display for easier viewing in low light.

The Sense will last over 6 days on a single charge, with a new magnetic charger that is cross-compatible with the Fitbit Versa 3. A quick 12 minute charge will provide you with a full day of use.

Fitbit Premium

Every Fitbit Sense will come with 6 months of access to Fitbit Premium, which unlocks deeper analysis of your data and more personalised insights.

It also delivers advanced sleep tools, hundreds of workouts from brands like Aaptiv, barre3, Daily Burn, Down Dog, as well as trainers and influencers like Ayesha Curry, Charlee Atkins and Harley Pasternak.

Also launching today in the US is Fitbit Premium + Health Coaching, a new virtual one-on-one coaching service that gives you access to a certified health professional and a personalised plan using your Fitbit data – all through the Fitbit app.

You will have unlimited check-ins with your coach, a personalised action plan to help you stay on track, as well as all the benefits of Fitbit Premium.

HTC & Under Armour Unveil UA HealthBox

January 5, 2016 – Today, HTC and Under Armour unveiled UA HealthBox, the world’s first connected fitness system that measures, monitors, and manages the most important drivers of health and fitness – sleep, fitness, activity and nutrition.

Designed and manufactured by HTC and powered by UA Record, UA HealthBox includes a fitness band, heart rate monitor and a smart scale that all connect seamlessly with UA Record to provide insights that empower individuals to improve their health and fitness. The new UA Record is available for download from the Google Play store and App Store.

With a HTC smartphone, or other Android or iOS smartphone, UA Record serves as the dashboard for daily activities that dictate how you feel. Following the same philosophy HTC takes when designing smartphones, UA HealthBox removes the barriers and complexity of technology with a simple to set up and easy to use system.

“This system contains everything a consumer needs to better manage their health and fitness,” said Wolfgang Muller, Executive Director – Connected Products, HTC. “Whether you are a high performance athlete or simply committed to improving your health, UA HealthBox is the only system that delivers the complete picture and provides the information and motivation needed to achieve your goals.”

 

The UA HealthBox

UA BandTM is designed to be worn all-day, every day. It tracks daily activity, workouts and sleep. All day activity capture allows you to set a daily goal and track progress on the band. UA Band utilizes a seamless exterior shell with a display that is discreetly hidden under an outer layer allowing the technology to disappear when it is not in use. Designed with athletes in mind, the band offers an advanced workout mode with a display that stays on during the workout, as well as an LED that indicates heart rate zone when paired with UA Heart Rate. UA Band comes in black with a red textured underside to allow moisture wicking.

UA Heart RateTM is a compact heart rate monitor with an innovative micro snap technology designed to make it undetectable during workouts. The chest strap and removable sensor helps individuals monitor intensity and train smarter. The UA Heart Rate was created to provide an accurate calculation of calories burned. Combined with the UA Record app, UA Heart Rate allows you to customize your heart rate zones.

UA ScaleTM is a beautifully crafted, Wi-Fi enabled scale with an iconic circular design. The scale utilizes a sheet of glass with advanced conductive paint technology that enables weight and body fat percentage readings. The hidden LED display behind the glass makes technology invisible when not in use. The scale can support up to eight users and syncs with the UA Record app for individuals to view trends with weight as part of their overall dashboard. UA Scale comes in black with a red textured underside.

“There are several options for consumers today when it comes to monitoring their daily activity, but no option when it comes to capturing and presenting information in a meaningful way. Most of us know more about the health of our car than we do about our own bodies,” said Robin Thurston, Chief Digital Officer, Under Armour. “Under Armour and HTC sets out to change that by going far beyond the automation of data tracking. UA HealthBox provides custom health and fitness experiences designed to guide you towards your goals.”

[adrotate banner=”4″]Because of its unique approach, UA HealthBox is intended to be an integral part of an individual’s daily life, and as such the importance design was paramount. UA HealthBox has been designed to unify the portfolio of products and the experience of using them.

“At HTC, design is an uncompromising part of our culture. It is our DNA and we have an obsessive focus on delivering beautiful design not just on the outside but on the inside too,” said Muller. “UA HealthBox is beautifully designed with no detail overlooked or thought through, but it was also designed to be a comprehensive connected system that is easy to use throughout the day and every day. This is what sets it apart from anything on the market today.”

 

UA HealthBox Availability

UA HealthBox will be available on January 22 in the U.S. with pre-orders beginning today on the HTC and Under Armour websites and at Under Armour Brand House locations. UA HealthBox (including UA Band, UA Heart Rate and UA Scale) will cost US$400. UA HealthBox will roll out to additional US retailers in the first quarter and internationally throughout 2016.
