Fitbit unveiled a new smartwatch on Monday, called the Fitbit Ionic.
As Fitbit’s answer to the Apple Watch, Ionic can handle fitness tracking, sleep tracking, contactless payments, music, and more.
The watch costs $A449.95 and will be available in October.
While Fitbit refers to Ionic as its first smartwatch, the company has released two other smartwatches in the past — Blaze and Surge. But unlike those two smartwatches, where the industrial design was outsourced, both Ionic’s hardware and software were designed entirely in-house by the Fitbit team.
While we’re still testing the Ionic smartwatch (we have it in our offices and will publish a full review in a few weeks), here’s everything we can tell you so far.
