Fitbit has been rumored to release a new smartwatch for quite some time especially after acquiring Pebble's assets after the company went out of business. There have been some leaks in the past, but Wareable has published what they claim to be official renders of the device in its final version:
The design isn't all that impressive and frankly looks a lot like their Blaze Fitness Watch which is currently on the market for $198 (Amazon). With buttons on both sides and sensors on the bottom of the chassis, the model stays true to its fitness-inspired routes and is expected to offer all of the features from their Charge 2.
According to the CEO on a recent investor's call, this model will launch with an app gallery that allows select partners and developers the chance to integrate software directly with the Fitbit smartwatch. Further rumored specs include GPS, waterproofing (up to 50m), and red/blue sensors for tracking the most accurate heart rate along with measuring oxygen levels in the blood.
This is all we know for now, but stay tuned for any updates on the official announcement along with confirmed photos, specifications and pricing details.
