Fitbit has unveiled the Ionic, its first smartwatch – and its first device built on the Pebble platform.
Fitbit acquired Pebble and its “key assets” for around $40 million last year.
The Ionic features a battery life of four days or more, automatic activity and sleep tracking, and cross-platform compatibility.
It also has a new SpO2 sensor, which Fitbit said makes it possible to gain deeper health insights by tracking conditions like sleep apnea.
The Ionic also supports contactless payments, GPS tracking, on-device dynamic workouts, improved heart rate tracking, and water resistance of up to 50m.
The Ionic is available for pre-order for $299.95, and will be available from retailers from October 2017. A Fitbit Ionic Adidas special edition is also scheduled for 2018.
Fitbit added that its app software development kit will open to developers from September 2017.
