According to German blog WinFuture, Fitbit will release the Ace 3, a children’s smartband, on March 15, which is an upgrade of Fitbit’s Ace 2, which debuted in March 2019.
WinFuture has released some leaked images of the ACE 3, which, like the ACE 2, has a two-color design. The wearable has a 1.47-inch OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 240×240 pixels and supports an animated clock desktop.
The Ace 3 case is made of engineering plastic and weighs 70g. The wristband is removable and the body is waterproof to a depth of 50 meters. The Ace 3 comes with a physical button, as well as a pedometer that supports sleep monitoring and movement monitoring modes, including running, hiking and cycling. As a cheap wearable device, the Ace 3 doesn’t come with a heart rate sensor.
Fitbit Ace 3 will be compatible with Android and iOS devices, and all data will be available to kids and their parents through Fitbit’s app. Sources say it will have an eight-day battery life and take two hours to fully charge. Compared with the previous generation, the charging speed and battery life are improved.
Google officially acquired Fitbit for $2.1 billion on January 14 this year, we have learned. Fitbit has sold more than 120 million devices worldwide and has a broad audience.
