As it is known for several weeks, Fitbit is working on a smartwatch capable of competing with the competition featured by Apple Watch , Android Wear 2.0 and Tizen OS of Samsung. To do this, the US giant will rely on an operating system and a proprietary application store where third-party developers can publish their creations.
In the past few hours, some images have appeared on the net, making it show us the smartwatch (we still do not know what the trade name will be) in different angles and reveal some details about its aesthetics.
As you can see, the design of this smartwatch looks much like the Fitbit Blaze, a hybrid between smartwatch and smartband introduced a couple of years ago. The colors that will be set will be three: silver with navy strap, pink gold with blue and black strap with black strap.
From the point of view of the physical buttons configuration, again here is the Fitbit Blaze design, with two buttons on the right and a button on the left .
The heartbeat sensor brought to a new level by Fitbit
The bottom of the device is quite protruding but this is good to ensure a more accurate heart rate monitor.
About the heartbeat sensor, unlike its smartband, the American giant will use two red LEDs along with an infrared sensor . This is probably also to ensure the maximum VO2 monitoring in the blood .
Considering that the IFA in Berlin is approaching more and more, we are inclined to think that the presentation of this smartwatch will be in the German capital.
