The Fitbit watch will not offer the Wear OS

The Fitbit APK application examination showed three code marks for the three future Fitbit smartwatches. The concealed metadata corresponds to the Fitbit models' three well-known trademarks. Rhea, the Greek mother of the Olympic gods, is represented by one of the models. Another is Hera, which is an allusion to the Greek goddess of womanhood.

Both devices have a 336 by the 336-pixel display, which corresponds to the displays of the Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit Sense models. As a result, the new models might be the Fitbit Versa 4 and the Fitbit Sense 2. Of course, this assumes that the manufacturer does not intend to launch an entirely new line of smartwatches.

The third code name discovered in the app update is Nyota, which is the initial name of Star Trek Lieutenant Uhura. This device will have a display with a resolution of 124 x 208 pixels, which matches the Fitbit Luxe small Smart bracelet. Fitbit Luxe 2, its successor, should be the third device.

Will Fitbit's new smartwatches use Wear OS? 

Fitbit's CEO said in May 2021 that another of their premium smartwatches would be powered by the Wear OS technology. Fitbit's latest Versa 3 and Sense watches were released in September 2020. As a result, it was anticipated that the brand needed extra time to adapt Wear OS 3 to Fitbit hardware.

Unfortunately, the models of these expensive watches with Wear OS are unlikely to be revealed. This reflects the type of Bluetooth connection discovered in the Fitbit information between the smartphone and the watch. Wear OS has its own connection system, and the new models, like their predecessors, will use the Fitbit OS connection system.

Given that Google purchased Fitbit a long time ago, we are disappointed by the lack of Wear OS. However, it is possible that the manufacturer will release more watches with Google's operating system, although there is presently no information on this.

Recall, the concern with the Fitbit Ionic's lithium-ion battery

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the concern with the Fitbit Ionic's lithium-ion battery is that it has seen temperature spikes over normal in some units, resulting in many occurrences ( UCPSC). This government agency specifically said that there would be proof of no less than 115 documented instances, including four reports of second-degree burns and two reports of third-degree burns.
