The run may be long and the training tough, but you don’t have to do it alone. The newly released Fitbit Ionic smartwatch is an amazing workout partner, motivator and all-round timepiece that keeps up with your daily active lifestyle.
As one of leading wearable technology brands today, Fitbit has introduced some pretty impressive fitness trackers and watches in the past. But the Ionic is its first official venture into the smartwatch race. Built on Fitbit’s expertise, the Ionic is packed with personalised features that any fitness fan will love – and it’s now available at Sun & Sand Sports online. Let’s see how Fitbit Ionic can help us work out in a new way.
Most fitness watches look the same at first glance, but what sets the Fitbit Ionic apart is the intelligent frame and streamlined design. The body contains eight different sensors and a built-in GPS antenna for stronger satellite connection. The hi-res touchscreen has amplified brightness for outdoor and indoor use. It displays crisp graphics, is scratch-proof and made of tough and damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The watch case is water-resistant up to 50m and it boasts up to four days of battery life on a single charge.
Whether you’re a beginner or experienced athlete, the Fitbit Ionic has a personalised fitness guidance feature to help you reach your daily goals, and produces comprehensive data of all your results. The pre-loaded Fitbit Coach recommends dynamic workouts and step-by-step coaching based on your feedback. The automatic Run Detect recognises whenever you’re running or taking a break, tracking every step. The multi-sport mode follows your progress when cycling, hiking, weight training and even when you’re playing sports like basketball or swimming, then the SmartTrack records your distance, stroke style, calories burned, pace and more – storing everything in the Fitbit app.
Cool down after a workout with the guided breathing session based on your heart rate. Ionic has an improved and more accurate PurePulse® heart rate monitoring technology that tracks health, optimises exercise time and monitors sleep quality. Ionic also introduces the relative SpO2 sensor for estimating blood oxygen levels in the body.
Powered by the new Fitbit OS (operating system for smartwatches), its smart features include smartphone notifications for received calls and texts, calendar reminders, and also for third-party apps like Gmail, Facebook, Instagram and more. It also features the pre-installed Strava function, connecting you to runners and cyclists around the world, and AccuWeather for real-time weather forecast. Music can motivate you to move and boost performance, and the Fitbit Ionic can store more than 300 songs, so you can listen to your workout playlists without your phone. It has a customisable clock face in unique designs and the bands are interchangeable to suit any personality or style.
