On this Wednesday, the Fitbit has said that they have full faith that growth represents "a large opportunity" to attract new customers into this market by providing wearable devices such as smartwatches and trackers at a reasonable price. The Versa Lite Edition is an affordable version of the Fitbit Versa. It offers heart rate monitoring, sleep stage tracking and automatic activity reading. These include most of the core fitness and smart features Versa is known for, including automatic activity, 24/7 heart rate, and Sleep Stages tracking, 15+ goal-based exercise modes, connected Global Positioning System, smartphone notifications, 4 day battery life and relative SpO2 sensor that can estimate changes in blood oxygen levels and help track new health indicators about health, such as sleep apnea.

Finally, the Ace 2 is designed for kids aged six and up.

The last device is the Fitbit Ace 2, and this is the fitness tracker for kids at the age of 6 and above. Its features include a new swimproof design, a bumper to protect the screen, animated clock faces and a variety of motivating activity challenges.

For that much, buyers can look forward to all the features that they'd expect of a smartwatch, or for that matter, a fitness wearable. Inspire HR will be available in black, lilac and two-tone black and white colors at Rs. 8,999.

Fitbit Inspire will cost Rs 6,999. Aimed towards kids, the Ace 2 comes in two color combinations: watermelon pink with a teal clasp, and night sky blue with a neon yellow clasp. It has swim-proof water resistance and would be available in the second quarter of 2019 for Rs 6,999.
