Fitbit OS 4.1 has been announced, which will bring new features to the company’s range of smartwatches. Fitbit was recently acquired by Google for $2.1 billion.
Fitbit says the update adds new sleep features, more functionality straight from the home screen, along with new capabilities for Amazon Alexa. The new Versa 2 smartwatch will also get a new advanced heart rate algorithm with this update.
Fitbit also claims that the new OS update will not impact battery life on Versa. The new OS 4.1 update is bringing features to Versa 2, Fitbit Ionic and the entire Fitbit Versa family of smartwatches.
Things to be excited about
Fitbit on Thursday announced new OS 4.1 software update for its smartwatch which adds new sleep features, more functionality straight from the home screen, along with new capabilities for Amazon Alexa.
The OS 4.1 update also adds a battery-related feature, which will kick-in to notify when the battery is running low.
All new features made for you
Fitbit OS 4.1 will have a new smart wake feature, which is a silent on-device alarm that the user can set to wake them up with subtle vibrations.
Users will get their nightly Sleep Score on the device, giving them a quick recap of the quality of the night’s sleep, along with other sleep stats and data.
But wait, there’s more
There’s also a new agenda app to help users manage their daily schedule on-the-go. A new clock face switcher will let users store up to five of their favorite clock faces on the device itself and these can be easily swapped from the device in the new OS, instead of relying on the app.
The new OS also brings a five-star rating system within the Fitbit App Gallery, allowing users to rate and recommend their favorite apps and clock faces within the Fitbit user community.
