Fitbit quietly launched a new health tracking wearable that comes with a bit of a disclaimer: unlike its other device lines, the Inspire and Inspire HR are not available for purchase.
Instead, the wearables are chiefly available through Fitbit’s Health Solutions which deploys its fitness products in the corporate environment.
This means that if you really want one, you’ll need to ask your boss or insurance company.
“These special release trackers are available exclusively through Fitbit corporate, wellness, health plan, and health systems partners and customers of their organizations, participants, and members,” the company explains on its marketing page.
As their names suggest, the Inspire HR features a heart rate monitor, while the stock Inspire lacks this feature. It also lacks GPS support too, but does come in two spiffy colours.
The HR is the more feature-rich option, boasting heart rate monitoring and support for GPS if connected to your smartphone. But it’s not clear if you can store music onboard its internal storage.
Both however feature sleep, calories, steps and other trackers. Up to five days of battery life is also promised, with water resistance of up to 50 metres too.
It’s not clear how much these devices are worth.
