Get a little help throughout the day with Google Assistant 

With the latest release of FitbitOS you now have access to Google Assistant on your Fitbit Versa 3 or Sense in the U.S..* Excited? Us, too. 

Ask Google to help manage daily tasks, plan your day, or get answers, all while on the go. Use your voice to check the weather, set an alarm, get your sleep duration, or even start an exercise on your Fitbit smartwatch. 

Google Assistant offers live transcription of your query to indicate that Google Assistant is receiving your question. Once your query is received, it will also provide suggested follow up questions to help you dive deeper into what you’re inquiring about. For example, ask Google “what’s the weather today?” and see the response plus additional suggestions for what you can ask next, such as, “what about this weekend?” or “what about tomorrow?”

Hear audible replies from Alexa 

Alexa is also getting an update on Fitbit smartwatches. Now, the built-in microphone and speaker enables the option for audible replies. Ask Alexa a question, and she not only answers via text on your watch, but also with an audio response.* You can choose to turn off the audio replies by going to Amazon Alexa in the voice assistant tile in the Fitbit mobile app.

Staying connected just got easier

Ready to take calls right from your wrist? The built-in microphone and speaker enable Bluetooth calling on Sense and Versa 3, making it even easier to stay connected while on the go. 

When you receive a call, Sense and Versa 3 alert you of the incoming call, let you answer it on device or send the call to voicemail. Phone must be nearby. This feature requires more frequent charging.  

Elevate your SpO2 experience

New to SpO2? Also called oxygen saturation, SpO2 refers to the level of oxygen in your blood. With Fitbit’s SpO2 on-wrist app and clock faces, your watch will track your average SpO2 levels while you’re sleeping, then, with Fitbit Premium, you can use the Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app to track your trends over time and see when there may be indications of important changes in your fitness and wellness.**

With this new software release, we’ve expanded our SpO2 clock face assortment, so you can customize your clock face with a variety of new options to match your style and still receive the SpO2 stats on-wrist. The clock faces are available for Fitbit Sense, Versa family, and Ionic smartwatches (note that you’ll need Fitbit Premium to track SpO2 trends in your Health Metrics dashboard).

If you’re a Sense or Versa 3 user, you can now track your SpO2, regardless of which clockface you are using, by using the new SpO2 app. Like the SpO2 clock face, the SpO2 app enables backend night-time monitoring so you can see your SpO2 levels in your Health Metrics dashboard in your mobile app. 

Note that using the SpO2 feature affects battery life. 

Here at Fitbit, we’re always striving to bring you quality experiences that will help you reach your health and wellness goals. So, don’t wait! Discover all this new OS update has to offer today.
