The holiday season is a wonderful time filled with family reunions, dinners with neighbours, and parties with friends, but it can also be the time when we most neglect our overall health and wellness – whether it’s dropping all forms of exercise, binging on unhealthy food, or failing to get the right amount of sleep.
With Christmas just around the corner, what better way to celebrate (and survive) the holiday season than with the gift of health and wellness? If you’re looking for a stylish but thoughtful gift option, you can’t do much better than surprising your loved ones with a new smartwatch or fitness tracker.
When you gift a Fitbit device, you also give the gift of its proprietary platform and technology which has proven to help users perform at their best, stay active, and fight weight gain. This Christmas, Fitbit has a range of innovative products, catered to all budgets and lifestyle needs. From the new premium Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch, to the friendly fitness tracker for everyday – Fitbit Inspire HR and the advanced health and fitness tracker, Fitbit Charge 3 – Fitbit has something for everyone!
Furthermore, with Fitbit’s newest OS4.1 software update, you can expect an even more enhanced Fitbit experience, from the always-on display mode of the Versa 2 to new innovative tools like Smart Wake, and even a new-and-improved heart rate tracking algorithm!
In celebration of the Christmas season, Fitbit will be offering their products at special discounted prices from December 9 to 27, 2019, at leading retailers including Digital Walker and the Fitbit Official Store on Lazada.
Here is a guide to help make your holiday shopping just a little bit easier:
Premium smartwatch for all your fitness and health tracking needs
Spread the magic of Christmas with this all-in-one premium health and fitness smartwatch. In addition to a stylish AMOLED screen and always-on display mode, Fitbit’s newest OS 4.1 update arriving this December makes this the most effective Fitbit smartwatch yet:
Tired of hitting the snooze button? A new feature called ‘Smart Wake’ will gently begin to wake you with subtle vibrations during the optimal part of your sleep cycle within a 30-minute window prior to your pre-set alarm, letting you start your days more refreshed.
Keen on tracking your sleep and activity with even greater accuracy? The new OS4.1 update brings with it a new-and-improved algorithm for Fitbit’s proprietary 24/7 PurePulse® heart rate tracking technology – now using machine learning to recognize the unique signature of heart rate in the optical sensor.
Want a new look each day? Apart from a whole host of customizable straps, the upcoming OS4.1 update can now let you store up to five clock faces right on your device and easily switch it up whenever you’d like.
With new and advanced features being introduced in its next software update in early December 2019, this smartwatch is designed to help you live your best life.
