The smartwatch is a lowered-down and inexpensive version of the Versa Edition smartwatch and can track the users' heart rate, sleep, walk and more.

The new models to be launched include the FirBit Versa Lite, the Fitbit Inspire HR, the Fitbit Inspire, and the Fitbit Ace 2.

Fitbit has been in this market for long enough, and that means it has a few choices for you to pick from, though this week, there are a few more, all aimed at bringing its technology to more wrists at slightly easier price points. Ace 2 will also feature new animated clock faces, and has motivating challenges to keep kids moving, and colorful avatars and cover photos to personalize their profiles within the Fitbit app. Parents will have to create a Fitbit family account to set up Ace 2 with a child account and to stay on top of their kids' activities. It features a simple one-button, lightweight, swim-proof design in new bold color choices for the young at heart. If the Versa Lite is still a little too rich for your blood, something like the Inspire or the Inspire HR might be worth considering instead.

The Versa Lite Edition is available for US$159.95 in white, lilac, mulberry and marina blue. It has swim-proof water resistance and would be available in the second quarter of 2019 for Rs 6,999.
