Apple Watch may have a new rival. Fitbit has announced the launch of its new Fitbit Sense which, due to its design, has already been compared to the device of the Cupertino giant. In fact, the aesthetic characteristics favor comparison but what makes Fitbit Sense particularly interesting is the attention to the user’s health; and therefore the functions it is able to perform in this perspective.

One of the functions that is most attracting attention concerns the ability to detect electrodermal activity : it will be sufficient to place the palm of the hand for about 30 seconds on the smartwatch which will detect the electrical changes in the level of sweating of the skin. The result, together with the additional parameters measured, will offer an overview of the user’s stress condition and will provide suggestions about the various relaxation techniques to be practiced.
The device will be able to sense heart rate and monitor users’ sleep quality. In addition, it will offer the possibility to follow 20 different training plans. Fitbit Sense also introduces another particularly important innovation, it refers to its ability to detect atrial fibrillation signals.
As for what the design of the device will be, we know that it will have a 1.58-inch AMOLED panel ; and that the smartwatch will be available in three different colors.
Fitbit Sense can be purchased starting from autumn 2020 but the official date has not yet been announced. The cost of the device will be 329.95 euros.
