Fitbit sense is without a doubt making some of the most technologically advanced fitness trackers on the market right now. Furthermore, the American brand regularly creates cool and trendy timepieces. And the brand-new Fitbit Meaning is no different!
The Fitbit Sense smartwatch or fitness tracker has a somewhat larger screen than previous ones, measuring about 40 mm, but it retains the same common pressure sensor on the side of the watch and a supportive strap that hugs your wrist.
The so-called infinity band, which is made of silky smooth silicone and covers the end of the band under the rest of the band to avoid irritations while giving the appearance of an endless band, has also improved the latter.
Aside from making the display easy to read, the wider screen makes the Fitbit Meaning appear more like a futuristic smartwatch than a conventional fitness tracker (like the Fitbit Charge and the Fitbit Inspire). I’m blown away by how bright and crisp the show is, even in intense sunshine, where glares would usually make reading difficult.
Fitbit Sense Fitness Track:
Like any other Fitbit activity tracker, the Fitbit Sense smartwatch is a great watch for both everyday activities and sports. For example, the watch can show notifications from your phone, notify you of incoming calls, and can be used as a payment tool. You do not need to take your phone out of your pocket, all these features will help you in your daily life.
The Fitbit Sense menu is surprisingly intuitive and easy to navigate.
Fitbit Sense has a single button to activate and deactivate the screen. And it’s not even a button, instead, it’s a pressure-sensitive sensor on the back of the watch case that responds to light-touch. All other features of the watch are navigated through the touch screen.
The response of the touch screen is relatively fast, but I have noticed that wet gestures or touching too hard can affect the gestures of the swipe.
With Fitbit Sense, you will get classic activity-tracking features like step counters, heart rate monitors, and boarding planes. Fitbit Sense also measures intensity minutes, which is a high level of your heart rate due to training.
The activity tracker vibrates whenever you touch a specific heart rate.
Tracking gives you a good idea of how to compare your daily goals. If you are more / less active than the default goal for your age, you can set daily goals in the Fitbit app.
Compared to my Garmin watch, the results are quite accurate. However, there is one exception that involves step-wrong tracking, the Step Counter 100 is displayed as I experienced it when I woke up in the morning.
Until I fall asleep, I feel that the step counter is a little more sensitive to my nightly movements, such as walking or jogging at night. It is worth pointing out that I experienced the same thing with my Garmin watch, so it was impossible to get rid of completely.
Fitbit Sense Battery:
The Fitbit Sense has a battery life of up to 6 days, which is approximately in line with my personal experience. Naturally, when I use the GPS feature, the SpO2 dial, and the ‘always-on’ settings – particularly when I use them all at the same time – the battery life suffers.
Fitbit Sense GPS:
The big news around Fitbit Charge 4 is the built-in GPS introduction, which is only included in a select few activity trackers. Naturally, this feature is also included in the Fitbit Sense and focuses heavily on physical activity and mental health (see both sections).
I’m excited to test Fitbit Sense’s built-in GPS because one of the disadvantages of the Fitbit Charge 4 is that it makes reading harder when running a smaller screen.
Before I first used the GPS feature of Fitbit Sense, I had to be patient, because the first watch was to detect and locate satellites. After this initial step, it is now a very time-consuming process and I can go for a run right away.
My runs are a much better experience whenever I use Fitbit Sense compared to Fitbit Charge 4. The screen size makes it easy to read the time, tempo, distance, and heart rate on the display. Additionally, the larger display now makes it easier to start/stop time correctly.
It was working flawlessly except for the time I lost in the woods without any reception. The GPS signal is lost in a flash, but Fitbit Sense automatically restores the signal. But that should not discourage you, because even the most accurate GPS watches can sometimes have trouble establishing a connection or even stop for a while when you are walking in the woods.
The ability to map tension with the EDA and ECG scans is undeniably Fitbit Sense’s biggest asset. This is where the Fitbit distinguishes itself from other fitness trackers, which normally only measure the heart rate as a tension predictor.
