Fitbit Ionic: Features, Colors, Price and Reviews
Fitbit’s first smartwatch with GPS, heart rate sensor and advanced activity monitoring capabilities. The Fitbit Ionic is more of a fitness watch than a smartwatch and can monitor all kinds of sports, including running, weightlifting, swimming and many more.
Smartwatch sports Fitbit IonicThe Ionic is Fitbit’s most complete smartwatch. It was launched in October 2017 as the company’s first smart watch. However, it was not as successful as expected due to its high price and limited capabilities when it comes to smartwatch functions.
The company’s SmartTrack technology will automatically recognize different types of activities, although runners, cyclists, swimmers and treadmill fans will have dedicated modes inside the watch. And for those who need better organized workouts, the Ionic Coach application will provide training plans with different difficulties and durations.
In addition to the activity, Fitbit has also added its sleep monitoring technology in the Ionic, as well as a large battery with up to 4 days of autonomy and the Fitbit Pay contactless payment system.
In conclusion, the Fitbit Ionic is the best Fitbit has to offer right now. It is the company’s most expensive watch and yet it falls short in several respects compared to other smartwatches, such as the Apple Watch Series 4 or the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus, which provide many more applications and richer notifications.
