Fitbit launches new 'Inspire' trackers for corporate sector

The price is not available publicly as it varies from provider to provider, but the device is available in two versions - the Inspire which mainly offers movement and sleep tracking and phone notifications, and the Inspire HR, which also adds heart rate tracking and connected Global Positioning System. The new Fitbit Inspire is going to be available only if you are working in a company, or if you have health insurance, and you seek a band through either the employer or from the insurance company.

Fitbit recently expanded its portfolio with two new fitness trackers - Fitbit Inspire and Inspire HR.

There's a touchscreen on the Inspire, and it is water-resistant up to 50 meters, and the band is said to be offering a 5-day battery life.

As their names suggest, the Inspire HR features a heart rate monitor, while the stock Inspire lacks this feature. A clip accessory is sold separately.

Fitbit has pushed out a new fitness tracker model, it's emerged, but it's not one you can actually buy - the new Fitbit Inspire is aimed at businesses and insurance companies rather than the consumer market.

Nothing much is known about these upcoming fitness trackers apart from the images leaked which also confirm that these are targeted towards kids fitness.

The Inspire can track sleep, however, and is advanced enough to show alerts like calls and texts as they come through from your phone. Following the company's return to profitability a year ago, the goal of expanding their corporate deals is likely a smart one, with consumers becoming more interested in full-fledged smartwatches with health features, and less with simpler fitness trackers.
