Smartwatch and sports tech digital news outlet Wareable has posted a few images that are supposedly leaked renders for the Fitbit Blaze 2, the next smartwatch from Fitbit. #objectmagic
The new Fitbit design, if it’s indeed real, looks very sleek and a bit Apple Watch-like, although it also bears resemblance to the Pebble. As you might recall, Fitbit bought Pebble after the former company struggled to gain significant market share. From the leaked Fitbit Blaze 2 renders, it seems they could be expanding their reach; according to Wareable’s source, Fitbit “wants this to be something that will appeal to a larger, more general smartwatch audience.”
In the images leaked, we see two potential options – a pink denim-printed bracelet with a pink-gold watch and a matte gray bracelet and watch.
According to the leak, the Fitbit Blaze 2 has the same FitbitOS and Sp02 oxygen-monitoring and sleep apnea sensor as the Fitbit Ionic. It will also be waterproof up to 50 m. However, it won’t have GPS, something that will be reflected in a somewhat lower price.
If you don’t want to wait for the Fitbit Blaze 2, check out the recently revealed Fitbit Ionic Adidas Edition.
It has the same Ionic features but pleases fans with an Adidas-branded watch face, wristbands, and Train app for runners. We particularly love the water-resistant, perforated wristband for improved airflow.
You can pick up the Fitbit Ionic Adidas-themed smartwatch on March 19th for $329. As for the Fitbit Blaze 2, we’re still waiting on a price and release date, but we’ll be sure to update you all as soon as we find out!
