Fitbit is adding a wrist-worn The Force fitness tracker to its line of fitness trackers which includes the popular Flex, Fitbit’s other wrist-worn tracker. Force offers an OLED display and altimeter on top of the features included in the Flex, says Engadget. It’s similar to the company’s One tracker, but with a wristband so you don’t have to clip it to your pants.
The Force is available in black or bluish-gray for $129.95, slightly more than the $99 Flex, which is remaining in Fitbit’s lineup.
The new OLED display on the Force is more informative than the Flex’s blinking lights, without having to look at the app. The Force has a proprietary charging port and can sync with your computer wirelessly with the new USB dongle. It can also still sync with your Android or iOS device over Bluetooth 4.0. Fitbit also recently revamped its apps for Android and iOS, offering a cleaner design that’s easier to use
Self-monitoring and self-sensing, which combines wearable sensors and wearable computing, is also known as The Quantified Self.
The Best Wrist Fitness Trackers of 2013 can quantify your fitness (for better or worse).
