Fitbit introduces a new line of affordable wearables

Fitbit introduces a new line of affordable wearables

Fitbit says the India launch date for all four products will be confirmed soon.

On the consumer side, the sharper focus on health maintenance has led a upcoming redesign of the Fitbit app which will make it easier for users to track fitness and health measurements and goals.

If those features aren't as important to you and you want just want something that can track your activity and calories, you can save a little bit of money and opt for the standard Inspire instead.

While the Inspire tracker is priced at $70, the Inspire HR retails at $100.

The Inspire and Inspire HR are billed as something as a lower-priced follow up to the Alta, and indeed, if there's a theme to Fitbit's spring device lineup, it seems to be simplicity.

On this Wednesday, the Fitbit has said that they have full faith that growth represents "a large opportunity" to attract new customers into this market by providing wearable devices such as smartwatches and trackers at a reasonable price.
