Fitbit’s first smartwatch is also its most expensive product. On the surface, Ionic might look like the older Blaze but from the inside it’s been completely overhauled, starting with a new relative Sp02 sensor, on-device dynamic workouts and improved PurePulse heart rate tracking. The new sensor helps estimate blood oxygen levels to track deeper health insights. Contactless payment through the band will be introduced in the near future. The company has developed their own operating system which is fully functional coming with its own App Gallery, letting users directly download and install an app on the Ionic without needing to bring in a smartphone thereby reducing outside dependency. The Ionic is swim proof and 5ATM certified for water resistance. Internal storage of 2.5GB can store approximately 300 songs to be played during workouts. It is available in 3 colour options like silver gray-blue gray, smoke gray-charcoal and burnt orange-slate blue.
T3 SAYS: Ionic will really need to justify the price bump so that it does not limit it to only the most serious of fitness enthusiasts
