Fitbit Ionic smartwatch – South African pricing

The Fitbit Ionic smartwatch will be available in South Africa from the middle of October at a recommended retail price of R5,499, Core Group told MyBroadband.

Fitbit’s first smartwatch is the company’s first device built on the Pebble software platform after its acquisition of Pebble’s “key assets” for around $40 million in 2016.

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.

Fitbit added that its app software development kit will open to developers from September 2017.
