Fitbit Has a New Activity Tracker. But You Can't Buy It in Stores

Fitbit's upcoming fitness tracker leaks in colorful images

Electronic equipment manufacturer Fitbit has recently launched its new activity tracker that can also track sleep time and patterns. The slightly more advanced Inspire HR also offers heart rate tracking and Global Positioning System. As for the pricing, since the device is aimed at kids, we expect it to be priced lower than other Fitbit fitness trackers.

James Park CEO of Fitbit stated that its revenues hinge on corporate customers and now there are 6.8 million patients along with employees and insurance plan members that have signed up for wellness programs which use device of Fitbit. It also has more advanced sleep tracking, goal-based exercise modes and can be paired with a phone to use its Global Positioning System for more accurate real-time pace and distance information.

There are two models for the Fitbit Inspire, which can be worn as a wrist band or as a clip-on like the discontinued Fitbit One. A clip accessory is sold separately.
