All new Fitbit fitness devices will go on same beginning this month in Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe, Middle East, and Africa.

Fitness tracking company Fitbit has added four new wearables to its lineup. The Lite edition is - no surprises here - the company's most lightweight smartwatch yet, although we don't now know the exact size of the device.

About the new launch, James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit said in a press release, "Since founding Fitbit nearly 12 years ago, we've focused on making health fun and achievable for everyone-regardless of fitness level or goals". It also features connected Global Positioning System.

As with the Alta HR, Inspire HR is in many ways a slimmed down Charge 3. Both of those wearables are swim-proof and have up to five days of battery life.

If you're willing to do without the heart rate tracking (though, we'd argue that's the most useful part of a fitness tracker) you can get the regular Inspire for R1,300.

As compared to Versa, the Lite edition lacks music, Swim laps, and Fitbit pay features. They track your active periods (with 15+ goal-based exercise modes) and your rest periods (sleep tracking plus Relax guided breathing).

The Ace 2 will launch in Canada sometime this summer.

As for the all-new Fitbit Ace 2, its target audience is extremely specific and now untapped by companies like Apple or Samsung, but unfortunately, interested young buyers will need to wait until summer to get their little hands on this fun, colorful, and robust wearable device. The Fitbit Inspire carries a $69.95 price tag making it one of the more budget-friendly Fitbit solutions, while the Inspire HR is available for $99.95 in Black or Sangria.

Following the success of its smart-wearable devices, Fitbit has today announced four new wearables, Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, Fitbit Inspire, Fitbit Inspire HR, and Fitbit Ace 2, that offer better health and fitness accessibility at relatively affordable prices.

In Australia, the Fitbit Versa Lite will retail for an RRP of $249.

Fitbit Ace 2 is the successor to the firm's activity tracker that is designed for kids.

Fitbit today debuted the Inspire and Inspire HR, a fresh line of fitness trackers that replace the Alta and others in Fitbit's range of products. Other features include smartphone notifications, apps, and relative SpO2 sensor to estimate changes in blood oxygen levels. Its features include a new swimproof design, a bumper to protect the screen, animated clock faces and a variety of motivating activity challenges.

Between all of this, there's a new-look Fitbit app with a beta testing of a rewards system that can end up with users getting discounts and perks from partners like Blue Apron.

At launch, the Ace 2 will be available in two fun colours: "Watermelon" and 'Night Sky.' Parents will also be able to buy two separate printed bands to allow their kids to further customize their Ace wearable.
