Accessories are also available to purchase such as classic Fitbit rubbery bands, leather and stainless steel (silver or black) bands as well as some designer bands. Versa will hit retailers starting this April and Ace will follow later in 2018.
There's no on-board Global Positioning System, however, the Versa relying on a Bluetooth connection to your phone for that.
As this is a new smartwatch from Fitbit - a brand known for health and fitness wearables - you should probably only consider buying this if you're interested in fitness features. With the smaller design, the Versa's is the lightest weight smartwatch made of metal now on the market, Fitbit says.
The kid-friendly fitness tracker device appears to function similar to existing Fitbit devices but will have several features that appeal to kids such has interchangeable wristband color and multiple clock faces that allow kids to choose from 10 ways to display Fitbit information. Fitbit sold only 5.4 million total devices in the fourth quarter, down from 6.5 million a year earlier and 8.2 million sold back in 2015. US users can also listen to Pandora.
They'll also be able to connect with others in a community section.
Additionally, if the child has a phone, parents will be able to view call notifications that are displayed via the Fitbit Ace, TechCrunch noted.
All that hardware pairs with Fitbit's OS 2.0 software.
Plus, if Fitbit's survey is right and 80 percent of respondents really didn't know how many phases are in menstrual cycle, an app like this might be beneficial in simply helping to educate more women about the ins and outs of their cycle.
In a press release by Fitbit, it says the tracking feature enables menstrual cycle logging and recording of symptoms such as headaches, acne and cramps. There'll be reminders to log your food intake or take medication, celebrations for hitting goals and milestones, insights into your activity, sleep summaries, social challenges and prompts to take action on your data. Melanie Chase says the closed nature of iOS doesn't allow them to offer the same functionality, but that it's looking at workarounds for specific apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
According to the CDC, childhood obesity affects about 12.7 million children and adolescents in the U.S. Even if your child doesn't have a weight issue, a sedentary lifestyle can create health issues and eventually become a pattern that follows them into adulthood.
Both products are available for pre-sale today; the Fitbit Ace is priced at $99.95, and the Fitbit Versa starts at $199.95.
