While wearing a Fitbit might not be up everyone’s alley, these minimalist wearable tech are quite good. Sure, there are a number of options to choose from when it comes to fitness trackers, but Fitbit has its own presence in the market. And there are quite a lot of Fitbit itself. But now, Fitbit has unveiled two new fitness bands – Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Inspire HR.
The new Fitbits, however, are only for the corporate world, it seems. What does it mean? Well, it means that these Fitbits are not for you to just walk into the store and buy. These are only available through Fitbit Corporate, wellness, health plan, and health system partners. So, you can buy these only if you’re an employee enrolled in a fitness plan by your organization. What difference does it make? We don’t know…but it is what it is.

Out of the two fitbits, the Fitbit Inspire is the lesser version. It has a water-resistant build, so, it is swim-proof, and has a touchscreen display.
It tracks your normal activities, periods of sleep, amount of calories burnt, and will also prompt you to move if you sit in a position for a long time. Plus, it also supports notifications for texts, calls, and calendar alerts. Also, it claims up to 5 days of battery life.
Fitbit Inspire HR
The other one, the Fitbit Inspire HR does all the things that the Inspire does, but with a few tweaks. The HR, probably meaning Heart Rate, includes a Heart Rate Monitor that measures your heart rate continuously. So, you can use it for workouts heart-rate zone based workouts. In addition, it has over 15 exercise modes, cardio fitness level data and GPS features.
These seem to be the standard features we can find in most mid-range to high-end smartwatches like the Samsung Galaxy Watch or Huawei Watch GT as well. So, what sets them apart? We don’t know that either. For now, there are no price reveals. Probably, that is also only revealed to the corporate buyers. And by the looks of it, it won’t be made available for other users.
