Despite regulatory bodies continuing to hover over the merger, Fitbit is currently part of the Google team. And as such, Google is now responsible for the advancement of its ecosystem of connected devices, although some, such as the case at hand, do not yet have WearOS on board. In fact, we talk about devices with Fitbit OS.
Specifically, the devices that we now have in hand are the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3, two smart watches that currently have Fitbit OS 5.0 and that already They start making the leap to Fitbit OS 5.1, and with the new version come interesting improvements. Among them, for example, the new function to measure oxygen in the blood when we sleep.
Voice calls and dictation of messages
As we say, Google has already made Fitbit OS 5.1 official and its deployment has started in the United States of America with a view to more landings. For example, support for Google Assistant on the Fitbit Versa 3 and Sense will arrive in Spain in early 2021, Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and other countries, thus completing the deployment.
With this Fitbit OS 5.1 will also come the option that both Fitbit are capable of measure blood oxygen saturation at night automatically, taking advantage of the calm of sleep to make more precise and stable measurements. With the arrival of Assistant, it will also be possible to select which smart assistant we want because, remember, both Fitbit already have the Alexa integration.
Fitbit OS 5.1 also brings the ability to make voice dictations to both watches so that they are translated into text to use to reply or send messages. Y voice calls also arrive to our wrist taking advantage of both the microphone and the speaker of both smart watches. It only remains to wait for the update to reach all the countries in which the Fitbit Versa 3 and Sense are marketed.
