What is special about Fitbit Sense?
The Fitbit Sense was originally designed as a step tracker, and all Fitbit devices still offer step tracking. But these small, wrist-worn devices also boast distance tracking, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, GPS, and other nifty features.
The Fitbit Sense is Fitbit’s flagship health-focused smartwatch. It has built-in ECG, GPS, and heart rate sensors, plus a new EDA Scan app that measures your body’s stress levels. This is by far Fitbit’s most advanced health watch so far.
Use the built-in speaker and microphone in Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Sense 2, Fitbit Versa 3, and Fitbit Versa 4 to take calls from your wrist.
Use quick replies to send customized responses to text messages and messages from certain apps with Fitbit Charge 3, Fitbit Charge 4, Fitbit Charge 5, Fitbit Inspire 3, Fitbit Ionic, Fitbit Luxe, Fitbit Sense series, or Fitbit Versa series. This feature is currently available on devices paired to an Android phone.
itbit is attempting to challenge the dominance of the Apple Watch with the Sense: a smartwatch packed with advanced health sensors for stress, heart rate and ECG wrapped up in a neat and tidy package. But be careful, because if you damage the watch, it appears you can’t even pay Fitbit to fix it.
It costs £300 and is Fitbit’s top model above the £200 Versa 3, which is essentially the same smartwatch without the advanced sensors, plus a cheaper line of fitness trackers.
Fitbit is a name synonymous with fitness tracker. So, when I tell you that the Sense is one of its most advanced smartwatches. There can hardly be any doubts regarding its health monitoring capabilities. Sense is a simple, thoughtful, yet powerful name for a device like this. The smartwatch falls in the premium league, and with other compelling options around, does it make sense to buy one? Let’s take a closer look and find out.
One of the main features that sets the Sense apart from both competitors and other Fitbit devices. This is its ability to perform a quick ECG scan to help keep a closer eye on your health.
The scan can also alert you to potential signs of atrial fibrillation (Afib). A serious condition that should be discussed with a healthcare professional.
To use the feature, start by enabling the ECG widget in the phone app. Next, open the widget on your watch.
Is the Fitbit Sense worth buying?
The Fitbit Sense is easy to use and packed with features.
In fact, my biggest issue with the watch is that the number of features is overwhelming. As a result, while the initial setup is easy, you’ll need to spend time , Other is researching to fully take advantage of everything that the Sense has to offer.
