Fitbit Ionic Watch now official




Fitbit has unveiled its newest smartwatch called the Ionic, and it’s said to be a lot different from the company’s other smartwatches for several reasons.

For one, the Ionic runs on a different wearable OS which may remind you of design cues from Pebble, which they acquired in the past. The device still packs in the usual makings of a smartwatch: accelerator and motion-detecting sensors, optical heart-rate monitor, GPS, NFC chip, a SpO2 sensor for blood oxygen saturation levels.

It also has water resistance that lets you do more such as track time when swimming, features guided breathing for meditation, and has a 2.5GB of storage onboard to store music. Support for Pandora Premium is also present.

Despite being billed as a smartwatch aimed for fitness, the device is equipped with NFC which can be used for contactless payments. Fitbit also claims that this device can last up to four days on standby, or up to 10 hours with GPS and music use.

Fitbit Ionic specs:
1.42-inch LCD display @ 348 x 250 pixels
Sapphire Glass
3-axis accelerometer
3-axis gyroscope
Optical heart rate monitor
Altimeter
Ambient light sensor
Vibration motor
WiFi antenna (802.11 b/g/n)
Bluetooth 4.0
GPS
NFC
SpO2 sensor
water resistant to 50 meters
Up to 4 days battery (standby), 10 hours (GPS, Music)

Fitbit isn’t new to the smartwatch game as it had released the Blaze last year. Nonetheless, the company moves into full throttle with the Ionic with a full accessory line that includes the company’s first audio gear and several straps (classic, leather and sport) with a USD299.95 retail price, or roughly Php15,300.

Support for Pandora Premium is also present, should you need to download songs and leave your phone when you want to make a quick run.”
