As for the Inspire range, the Inspire HR features heart rate tracking (as the name implies), automatic activity tracking and other Fitbit goodies such as guided breathing. The smartwatch is swim-proof in nature and comes with a battery life of four days.

The Fitbit Ace 2 is the brand's second attempt at a fitness tracker for kids.

Fitbit is making a play for new customers who don't now sport one of the company's wearables on their wrists by unveiling four new, more affordable devices today.

Described as the "everyday" smartwatch, the Fitbit Versa Lite is a versatile but affordable device.

Based on early promising results from using Fitbit devices in its diabetes prevention program, Solera is making Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Inspire HR available to all of its diabetes program participants including Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. Next up we have the Fitbit Inspire for those of you who wish to own an even more affordable device.

When it comes to deciding between the Inspire and the Inspire HR, there's one big question in particular: do you want your fitness tracker to be capable of heart rate monitoring? These include the Fitbit Versa Edition Lite smartwatch, and the Inspire HR, Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Ace 2 smartbands. The product is also swim-proof and will be on sale in India soon for INR 15,999.

Both Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Inspire HR have a swimproof design with a touchscreen display, support for smartphone notifications, and up to 5 days of battery life for day to night wear. It comes with essential features to help users stay motivated such as automatic activity, exercise and sleep tracking, goal celebrations, Reminders to Move, and timer and stopwatch features to stay on track.

Fitbit has been in this market for long enough, and that means it has a few choices for you to pick from, though this week, there are a few more, all aimed at bringing its technology to more wrists at slightly easier price points.

Finally, there's the Fitbit Ace 2.

The Versa Lite Edition is available for US$159.95 in white, lilac, mulberry and marina blue.

Fitbit is also outing a new wearable for kids with this announcement, talking about the Ace 2 and its swim-proof design, though it won't be available until later this year, arriving for $129.95 when it does.

Next up we have the Fitbit Inspire HR which can be considered an upgrade to the Fitbit Alta HR.
