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
