Latest news about Fitbit Charge and Mi Band:
04.01.17. Fitbit integrates with virtual reality bikes. Fitbit is rolling out new integrations to its top-selling fitness trackers. Peleton, a stationary bike company that offers live streaming classes, will feature Fitbit integration, letting users track their progress on the bike with their wearable, including a full post-workout break down. Ditto for VirZOOM, the indoor VR bike that we tried out at E3 last year, so users can track all of the time they’ve spent peddling around as a Pegasus or tank. Data collected includes distance pedaled (or, one assumes, miles flown in the case of the flying horse), workout time and calories burned. The partnerships will be on display this week at CES.
29.08.16. Fitbit unveiled waterproof Flex 2 and smarter Charge 2. Fitbit is updating two of its most popular fitness trackers - the new waterproof Flex 2 and heart rate-tracking Charge 2. With the $150 Charge 2, Fitbit redesigned its Charge HR with a larger display that makes the tracker look and feel more like a fitness watch. The Charge's fitness-tracking abilities have also been upgraded with new features that are able to record specific types of workouts, like weightlifting, runs, bike rides and interval sessions, and the tracker will automatically recognize some types of activities like yoga and running. If the Charge 2 is more fitness tracker than you need, Fitbit is also releasing a new version of its smallest tracker, the $99.95 Flex 2. It became much slimmer and water-resistant (at depths up to 164-feet). Like the Flex before it, the Flex 2 eschews a traditional display in favor of a series of LED lights that indicate your progress throughout the day.
02.06.16. Xiaomi Mi Band 2 - display-equipped fitness tracker for $23. Xiaomi launched a successor to its popular Mi Band fitness tracker: the Mi Band 2. Unlike the previous model, Mi Band 2 has an OLED display, but the price has also risen significantly: from $15 to $23. The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is a fitness, heart rate and sleep tracker. It sports an ADI accelerometer and an optical heart rate monitor, a 20-day battery (according to Xiaomi), and Bluetooth 4.0 support. It's water and dust resistant up to IP67 specifications. Its 0.42-inch OLED screen is not a touchscreen, which is probably one of the secrets behind the Mi Band 2's low price. Instead, you can tap on the device's button beneath the screen or flick your wrist to switch from time, step count and heart rate mode.
09.11.15. Xiaomi Mi Band Pulse - $16 wearable heart rate monitor. Xiaomi announced an upgrade to its $15 fitness band - Mi Band Pulse, the new wearable that adds a heart rate monitor to the mix, again at a pretty amazing price: $16. For comparison, Fitbit's cheapest activity-tracking bracelet, the Flex, costs $99.95. Though very similar in appearance to the original Mi Band, the Pulse is a little heavier and just a hair larger, though the differences are likely too small for most people to notice. Mi Band Pulse also features new strap material that won't be as prone to breaking as the last one, as well as a 45mAh battery.
28.10.14. Fitbit unveiled fitness wristbands Charge, Charge HR and fitness watch Surge. Fitbit unveiled three new devices: the Fitbit Charge (a reboot of the Fitbit Force), the Fitbit Charge HR (which comes with heart-rate monitoring) and the Fitbit Surge, a device specialized for runners (with some smartwatch capabilities). The Fitbit Charge ($129.95, launching in mid-November) is the replacement to the Fitbit Force, but it also added a feature to track sleeping without needing to put it in sleep mode. The Fitbit Charge HR is nearly the same as standard Fitbit Charge but it comes with continuous heart rate tracker, that adds $20 to the price. And Fitbit Surge is a fitness smartwatch, which comes with continuous heart-rate monitoring, built-in GPS, sleep analysis activity tracking and promises up to 7 days of battery life on a charge. The Fitbit Surge will launch in early 2015 for $249.95.
