Fitbit Ace Fitness Tracker For Kids Revealed

Fitbit Versa brings female health tracking and a much-improved design

In fact, this new watch is the lightest metal smartwatch in the USA, and measures just 11.2 mm thick.

Fitbit has released its lightest and most innovative smartwatches for both grown-ups and kids with the FitBit Ace and the Fitbit Versa.

The revamped version 2.0 of the software also gained hundreds of new apps and clock faces that weren't available when the Ionic debuted, including programs from United Airlines (ual), Yelp (yelp), and Google's (googl) Nest. The feature will be supported by the Fitbit Versa and Fitbit Ionic, and in the Fitbit app as early as this spring, for all users who have identified as females during setup. It also limits what children see in the app, including stats like calories burned, friend requests, and Fitbit's social community. It also now allows you to swipe down from the top of the watch to get your notifications - the Ionic made you swipe up from the bottom.

It comes in a choice of finishes: black, silver or rose gold.

Little is known about the internals of the Fitbit Versa, but so far in our short testing time we've found it to load apps and dash between screens speedily.

The Versa has numerous same core functions as Fitbit's first full-featured smartwatch, the Ionic: fitness tracking, wrist-based heart-rate detection, guided on-screen workouts, and an automatic recognition system that knows when you've begun exercising without the need to press Start. That's an omission serious athletes will have to consider.

The special editions of the Versa have NFC capabilities for Fitbit Pay in the U.S., but all Versa models sold in Asia will be able to use Fitbit Pay. I don't make payments from my wrist all that often, but for some buyers, the $30 premium for the special edition may be worth it.

Fitbit is taking another shot at the smartwatch game with their new Versa smartwatch.

This Kid's aimed smartwatch is available for a more affordable $109, and despite being less sophisticated, its value can be measured by its ambition since it encourages kids to build more active and healthy habits with their families.

Fitbit is looking to rectify this with its second smartwatch.

It'll let you log your menstrual cycle data, recording symptoms like headaches and cramp.

The next strategy: Put women first-a not-so-common move in tech products. "We wanted to be the first to give women a complete picture of their health". You'll get a three-month Deezer trial with the Versa. While Fitbit has been a staple in fitness technology for years at this point, they have yet to make a significant dent when it comes to luxury smart devices. But Fitbit is obviously hoping that you will. The new Fitbit for kids will be available in stores worldwide in Q2 2018, including major North American retailers like Amazon.

Fitbit today introduced Fitbit Ace, an activity tracker for kids.

Fitbit Ace is available for presale today on Fitbit.com for $99.95.

Bands for the Fitbit Versa come in gray, peach, periwinkle, black and white. The chunky and inelegant Ionic was unlikely to appeal to all, so the more attractive design of the Versa will certainly help in this regard. The most obvious of these is Global Positioning System, which isn't included on the Versa.

"Fitbit Versa [is] a modern, intuitive smartwatch at an approachable price", reads the blog post.

Fitbit also plans to allow you to use quick replies to apps including Messenger and WhatsApp.

Arguably, the Versa's most interesting capability is what Fitbit calls female health tracking.
