Smartwatch or fitness tracker?
How about both?
Introducing the Fitbit Ionic.
This is the watch you have been waiting for. It includes all the features from previous Fitbit trackers, plus new technology that rivals any smartwatch on the market.
Thanks to the awesome Fitbit Ionic features, you can get the best of both worlds and have a smartwatch and fitness tracker all in one.
Here are 8 of the best features of the new Fitbit Ionic.
1.Best of Fitbit Ionic Features: Battery-Life
Like kryptonite to Superman so is battery-life to technology.
There is nothing worse than having a battery go dead in the middle of a busy day. Fitbit Ionic is known to have a battery life of 4 days!
FOUR DAYS people! That’s 96 hours or 5,760 minutes. Either way, that’s a long time to not have to worry about charging your smartwatch. Any long marathon run of full day hike will definitely be covered.
And if the battery does get low, just a quick 15-minute charge will get you a few more hours.
Finally, Fitbit has a device that is waterproof up to 50m. That means it is safe for any swim workout you can imagine. (Unless you are diving for treasure at the bottom of the ocean.)
It is made of an aluminum unibody. Basically, that means the entire unit is made of one piece so there are no cracks to let water in.
But the best part is you don’t have to worry about switching it to “swim mode” like in previous models of Fitbit. You can just jump into the pool and go.
Hard workouts make you sweat a lot? You don’t have to worry about ruining your Fitbit. It’s covered.
