Fitbit Unveils First Smartwatch
Say hello to Fitbit’s first smartwatch – the Fitbit Ionic.
The fitness smartwatch – Fitbit’s first foray into the smartwatch market – comes complete with music player, GPS, personal coaching and a multi-day battery life. Encased in a waterproof Corning Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen, the Ionic has customizable clock faces, is bluetooth compatible and even allows users to make payments via the integrated NFC chip.
Fitbit say their new Fitbit Ionic smartwatch uses GLONASS to tap into global satellites giving users a stronger connection and more accurate stats.
I'm so excited to finally share what I was up to last week! I was at the beautiful @Fitbit house in Montauk trying out the all new #FitbitIonic. The Ionic is the first smartwatch from Fitbit. My favorite thing about it? It's waterproof! I had a killer pool workout with @gabbyreece and I was very impressed by its performance in the water. Ionic is available today for presale on Fitbit.com, with retail availability starting in October 2017. . . . . . #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightwatchersmagazine #wwmagazine #weightwatchers #wwfamily #smartpoints #wwcommunity #wwsisterhood #wwbros #healthyeating #healthyliving #livelifefully #fitbit
