Latest news about Fitbit Flex 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.
29.07.14. Fitbit becomes the first activity tracker that syncs to Windows Phone. Fitbit has decided to add Windows Phone to its list of supported platforms. A Windows Phone 8.1 version of the app is set to debut in Microsoft’s app store on Monday (here’s the link though the app wasn’t live at publication time), offering direct Bluetooth synchronization and the full set of features offered on the Android and iOS versions. Fitbit for Windows Phone pairs with a wearable activity tracker like the Fitbit Flex, keeping track of the wearer's activity. When you launch the app, you'll be able to see how many steps you've walked, the number of calories burned and — assuming you wear it to bed — sleep quality, too. The advantage of the Windows Phone version is in the app's live tile. Thanks to background syncing, you'll be able to see some "glanceable" information about your activity, such as the steps you've taken, just by looking at the tile.
