These are the innovations in Fitbit OS 3.0
In a one-year cycle, Fitbit publishes updates for its own Fitbit OS platform, which runs on the Fitbit Ionic, among other things. We have now reached Fitbit OS 3.0. That's what the new version has under the hood.
Since the beginning of this week, Fitbit OS 3.0 has been distributed to the first users of a Fitbit Ionic, Fitbit Ionic Adidas Edition and Fitbit versa rolled out. Owners of a Fitbit Charge 3 are (for the time being) looking into the tube, an update to version 3.0 is unfortunately not yet in sight. It should also be noted at this point that this update will be expanded at the beginning of next year. Fitbit is currently still working on supporting fitness apps such as TRX and on an expansion for the health functions for women.
Fitbit OS 3.0: These are the innovations
In Fitbit OS 3.0, goals can now be set for individual training sessions. For example, you can define that you want to jog five kilometers or that you plan to burn a certain number of calories while cycling. Something has also happened with the supported apps. There is now sometimes the app "MySwimPro".
I criticized Fitbit OS 2.0 for the fact that there are no views for, for example, the amount of water consumed or the last sleep data. There are such views now. It is also possible to add amounts of water or food consumed directly via the clock. The detour to the Fitbit app on the smartphone is no longer necessary.
