Leaked renders of Fitbit’s upcoming kid-oriented health tracker, the Ace 3, have leaked on-line, exhibiting off a slight design refresh and a few enjoyable new colors.
WinFuture shared the renders, together with a purple and black color and a light-weight purple and inexperienced combo. Aside from the color, the trackers characteristic a extra rounded design in comparison with the Fitbit Ace 2’s squared-off look. On high of that, the Ace 3 appears to be like barely much less cumbersome.
Another change between the Ace 2 and the leaked Ace 3 tracker is that the Ace 2 appears to be like to have a aspect button, whereas the Ace 3 makes use of an inductive button much like what you’d discover on Fitbit’s Charge trackers.
As for the spec sheet, it appears to be like like Fitbit didn’t change a lot with the Ace 3. According to WinFuture, the Ace 3 sports activities a pedometer for step monitoring and a 1.47-inch greyscale OLED show. Like the Ace 2, the Ace 3 received’t supply a coronary heart fee sensor. Battery life reportedly gives about 192 hours on a cost, or about eight days.
Given the similarities, the value possible received’t change a lot both — the Ace 2 at present retails for $99.95 in Canada, and I’d count on the Ace 3 to value about the identical.
One fascinating word in regards to the Ace 3 is it might be the primary system launched by Fitbit since Google accomplished its acquisition. The Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 launched final fall, and the Charge 4 got here earlier than that.
Considering that the Ace 2 is the one Fitbit system not at present bought on the Google Store, that possible confirms a refresh is on the way in which. It appears that, at the least for now, Google hasn’t modified a lot about Fitbit, though the Ace 3 possible was in improvement earlier than the acquisition completed.
