Fitbit unveils its latest tracker device

10 OCT 2013

Fitbit is launching its second wristband which, in addition to tracking activity and sleep, also shows the time and will, in the future, display caller ID.

The Fitbit Force will cost $130, which is $30 more than the previous Fitbit Flex. The device will be available in the coming weeks. However, the caller ID feature is not included at launch but will come with the next software update for the wristband.

Like its predecessors, the Force syncs with a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth. It will however offer more data to the users than past models. Its OLED display shows how many steps have been taken, the distance travelled, as well as stairs climbed and calories burned. It also displays a watch face.
