Fitbit Ionic, the first smartwatch from the wearables pioneer, offers a highly personalized experience

Wearables brand Fitbit has announced its first smartwatch. The Fitbit Ionic aims to improve the wearer’s health and fitness with a range of smart features including a relative SpO2 sensor for estimating blood oxygen levels, making it possible to track deeper health insights like sleep apnea.

There is also a personal trainer with Fitbit Coach, running companion, new swim exercise mode, GPS tracking, contactless payments using Fitbit Pay and on-board music (over 300 songs on the device, plus access to Pandora stations).

The Ionic smartwatch has water resistance up to 50 meters and a four-day battery life on one charge. Ionic offers personalized insights and guidance, along with an engaging experience and sleek design, to help encourage meaningful behavior change and better health outcomes.

James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit, said in a press release, “With Ionic, we will deliver what consumers have not yet seen in a smartwatch—a health and fitness first platform that combines the power of personalization and deeper insights with our most advanced technology to date, unlocking opportunities for unprecedented health tracking capabilities in the future.”
