The latest offering from Fitbit – Ionic


From time to time we at UTB cover wearables- and we’re no stranger to the Fitbit. Many of us have owned them over the years but their latest offering, the Ionic, is truly something to behold.

While the case is the same dimensions as the Blaze, it has been incorporated with the strap-holder. There are #3 styles of cases to choose from and a myriad of bands (my favorite is the Sport as it is perforated).

Now here’s where it gets really exciting –  the functionality is great. The Ionic offers:

  • Personal Coaching
  • Built-in GPS
  • Stores music
  • Heart Rate
  • Multi-day battery
  • Sleep monitoring
  • Water resistant
  • And my personal favorite “The Fitbit Challenge

In addition to these features Fitbit is slowly rolling out an app store including some of the apps from their latest acquisition –  Pebble!



So if you’re in the market for a wearable or an upgrade and don’t want to get trapped within a ‘Walled-off Garden‘ why not give Fitbit a try?
