Fitbit for Kids Lets Parents Track Activity Levels, Sleep

Fitbit Versa brings female health tracking and a much-improved design

It's also £100 cheaper.

So what's good or new about Fitbit Versa? The lack of Global Positioning System feels like a big omission-the beauty of the latest breed of smartwatches is how they don't need to be tethered to a phone-but if it means a cheaper watch that lasts longer it might be survivable.

"We've been panning our entry into smartwatches for a while", Fitbit CEO James Park told Mashable.

Fitbit has yet to confirm the exact size or specs of the display on the Versa, but it's a smaller one than on the Ionic and reminds us quite a lot of the screen on the Fitbit Blaze. The majority of smartwatches are designed primarily with men in mind, and according to Fitbit, that's reflected in the customer base. Becker explained that numerous parts of the design that interact with your skin are curved and made to appear and feel softer. It will be sold in black with a black aluminum case, gray with a silver aluminum case, and peach with a rose gold aluminum case.

In addition to that limitation on iPhone users, the Versa and the revamped Fitbit software won't fix all of the problems that held the Ionic back. Additional bands and accessories will range from Rs 2,499 to Rs 8,999.

Tillerson, formerly the CEO of ExxonMobil, was out of the country, finishing a week-long tour of several African nations. Instead, Tillerson's side of the story came later from Steve Goldstein, undersecretary of State for public diplomacy.

Fitbit itself will also offer bands.

The watch comes with a silicone band as standard (worth $30/€30), but you can buy a Horween leather band for $50/€60 or a metal or mesh band for $80-$100/€80-€100. There's no GPS on the watch, so if you want to track your location you'll need to use the Connected GPS feature and go running with your phone. You can load around 300 of your favorite songs on the device, listen to stations from Pandora, and now listen to curated playlists and Flow from Deezer.

When it comes to Fitbit Pay, the company's wearable payment service, the situation is a little. unusual. It has NFC for making payments with Fitbit Pay, but only in the special edition models.

The company said the device "fills a critical need in the market", offering a full-featured, well-designed smartwatch at a competitive price. You'll be able to log your cycle and record symptoms like headaches and cramps.

Fitbit is targeting a new kind of customer, one that probably isn't even old enough to have a gym membership.

Kim meeting only if N. Korea fulfills promises: White House
The U.S. side has dropped its condition that North Korea take real measures to end its nuclear program before talks can begin. Mr Chung expressed thanks for China's role at a meeting earlier with China's top diplomat, State Councillor Yang Jiechi.

The most exciting thing here is what Fitbit is doing in software.

Fitbit has just announced the Fitbit Versa, a smartwatch that's light and elegantly styled but still packed with workout apps for the fitness-focused. First, there's the Fitbit Versa, a $199 smartwatch that can do nearly everything that the Ionic, Fitbit's $299 smartwatch that was released this past October, can do. Many women already use period-tracking apps, but Fitbit is building period-tracking into the Versa, so women can see how their periods affect their sleep and activity. Essentially, Fitbit has replicated the smartphone app's dashboard on your wrist. The sensor has the potential to track blood oxygen levels, which can be applied to monitoring health conditions such as sleep apnoea.

Fitbit OS 2.0 is a big step in the right direction, and it's only going to get better over time. Melanie Chase says the closed nature of iOS doesn't allow them to offer the same functionality, but that it's looking at workarounds for specific apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. This will show a simplified version of the user's health and fitness data.

As for price, the Versa is set to cost £199.99 ($199, about AU$350) in the United Kingdom, which is much cheaper than the Fitbit Ionic, as that started off at £299.95 / $299.95 / AU$449.95.
