September is a month in which technology companies usually present many new features, and in the current case it is the turn of Google, which now presents the new version of its Fitbit 6 sports bracelet, although in this update looks like a smart watch for only 160. euros.
Fitbits have been Google’s sports bracelet for more than ten years, and in all this time, they have gone from a simple heart rate monitor to a more intelligent device that offers many functions and tools.
And the Fitbit 6 is an activity bracelet, or at least that is its official title, however, and although it has improved its measurement capabilities to make it more accurate, there are other aspects that attract attention. .
While the device itself is very similar to its predecessors, it is the interior and the capabilities it has that make it special. For example, for the first time since the launch of this bracelet, Google has included some of its services such as Google Maps to get you to your destination or Google Wallet so you can pay for a bottle of water after training.
Another aspect that is well thought out is the YouTube Music app, because who doesn’t like to practice music? Now you have more than 100 million songs to choose from for your training.
When it comes to exercise equipment, this bracelet allows you to choose from more than 40 exercise modes, of which 20 are new, such as skiing, snowboarding or surfing. Instead, you can see your heart rate in real time on other devices such as the running machine in your gym because it is compatible with machines from manufacturers such as NordicTrack, Peloton, Concept2 and Tonal.
It also measures and marks your sleep and your stress level, it’s waterproof and you can submerge it up to 50 meters and Google claims it has a battery that lasts up to seven days.
And of course, this sports bracelet is compatible with the main training applications for Android and iOS products. You can get it from 159.95 euros and receive up to 6 months of Fitbit Premium.
