The Fitbit Ace kid-focused fitness tracker is now available

Monday, June 11th, 2018

Fitbit has been in the business of making fitness trackers and wearables for years, but they've all been designed for adults. Now, there's a kid-specific fitness tracker called the Ace. It's available for purchase now, and it'll cost you $100.

So, what makes the Ace a kid's fitness tracker? For one, it's a little smaller and has a single adjustable band. It has a small monochrome display like the Alta, but there's no heart rate sensor like the more expensive Alta HR.

Fitbit Ionic review: Not the smartest smartwatch

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

The last few wrist-based Fitbit devices have been vaguely smartwatch-like, but the true Fitbit smartwatch has been elusive—until now. After acquiring some bits from the now-defunct Pebble, Fitbit has its very own smartwatch called the Ionic.

Huawei is one of them, and even though the Watch 2 Classic and Watch 2 Sport weren't quite as impressive as had been hoped, they still make for a good introduction to the Android Wear ecosystem if you can get a good deal on them.

Fitbit’s upcoming smartwatch leaks with ugly design and potentially improved fitness sensors

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Fitbit took mercy on Pebble last year, acquiring parts of the company when it came crashing down last year. While Fitbit isn't building any more Pebbles, it is in the process of creating a new Fitbit smartwatch. A few images have leaked before, but the latest round of leaks show this watch off from every (ugly) angle.
