Leaked photos show final design of Fitbit's upcoming smartwatch with new sensors
Although Wareable is not the first to publish the photos of Fitbit's upcoming smartwatch, the tech site manged to get hold of images that show the wearable from different angles. Its source also said that this is the finalized version of the smartwatch.
The set of photos show the smartwatch in three base color variants: silver case with navy strap, rose gold case with blue strap, and a darker case with a black strap. The button layout and the back of the watch are similar to the Fitbit Blaze.
What's more interesting than the final design is the pair of red optical sensors. Most fitness trackers generally use green optical sensors for measuring heart rate, which makes Fitbit's choice of red more intriguing. Wareable believes the new smartwatch has a pulse oximeter for measuring oxygen levels in the blood and the red optical sensors are likely to give more accurate readings on the heart rate.
Fitbit CEO James Park is confident that the smartwatch will "deliver the best health and fitness experience in the category". He also confirmed that the smartwatch will launch with an app platform and an app gallery, and that development of the device is "on track".
