Fitbit might soon launch a fitness tracker for kids

The basic version simply tracks steps and delivers basic phone notifications, while a more advanced version - the Inspire HR - adds heart-rate monitoring and exercise modes to the mix, along with the option to piggyback off phone Global Positioning System for accurate run tracking. Interestingly, both the devices will be sold to a few companies and health insurance members.

James Park CEO of Fitbit stated that its revenues hinge on corporate customers and now there are 6.8 million patients along with employees and insurance plan members that have signed up for wellness programs which use device of Fitbit.

The Fitbit Inspire is nowhere close to as superior because of the Fitbit Versa, a health tracker that acts rather more like a smartwatch in comparison with the corporate's earlier units. Showing activity and sleep tracking, calories burned, and prompting wearers with reminders to get up and move, the features are quite basic. The tracker comes with a touch screen for interaction and can be used while swimming. However, the Inspire base model does not come with heart rate monitoring and has slightly shorter battery life at five days instead of seven.

Samsung Galaxy M30 detailed specs leak
The Samsung Galaxy S10 , Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10e are three models that will be unveiled at the Samsung's Unpacked event. For the first time ever, Samsung will be offering its latest flagship in a variant with a ceramic back.

The Inspire is said to be Fitbit's cheapest wearable yet, but there are no prices listed, as the idea is that it will be issued by employers and insurance providers. The Fitbit Inspire HR can also track sleep stages (light, deep, REM) and can record real-time pace and distance via your smartphone's Global Positioning System.

As their names suggest, the Inspire HR features a heart rate monitor, while the stock Inspire lacks this feature.

It's also availalble in black with white a lilac options, too. This would mark Fitbit's second venture to producing kids band as the company already sells its Ace fitness tracker, aimed at kids.
