The latest FitbitOS release is rolling out to Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 devices.
Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 users can now hear audible responses from Google Assistant, track SpO2 levels from the Today dashboard on-wrist, plus get access to new clock face switcher functionality and see new celebrations.
Versa 3 users will also join Sense users in being able to better understand their heart health with high and low heart rate notifications.
Hear audible responses from Google – With this latest update you can now get audio responses from Google—if you ask to set an alarm, Google responds with: “Done. Your alarm’s set for tomorrow at 7am.” If you ask Google how you slept, Google responds with: “Since yesterday, you slept a total of 8 hr and 15 mins.” You’ll see replies in text format and with audio responses as well. (Note that the audio response is optional and can be turned off).
Oxygen saturation (SPO2) tracking – You can now access your SpO2 (the level of oxygen in your blood) from more places. In addition to the SpO2 clock face and within the Health Metrics Dashboard in the Fitbit app, you can now see your nightly average and trends from the past week in the on-wrist Today dashboard. If you pay for Fitbit Premium, your Health Metrics dashboard shows your trends from the past month and personal ranges to help you interpret your data.
High and low heart rate notifications – Now Versa 3 users can better understand (or can stay even more informed on) their heart health with high and low heart rate notifications. Versa 3 now offers on-device high and low heart rate notifications. With 24/7 continuous heart rate tracking, Versa 3 can detect and send a notification if your heart rate is outside of your set heart rate thresholds. If you receive a notification, you can also take a survey in the Fitbit app to help you better understand what’s going on.
Clock face switcher. Changing your clock face from day to night from gym to work or all of the above is now easier but still limited to 5 clock faces, to access more you have to use the Fitbit app. This new feature lets you swap your clock face without leaving the main screen. Simply press and hold the clock face for a few seconds to open the Clocks app to choose from a selection of your favourite clock faces.
New celebrations. Stay motivated throughout the day as you crush your health and fitness goals with new on-wrist celebrations that keep you inspired along the way.
