Fitbit Unveils 2 New Wearables

Wearable device maker Fitbit has just unveiled two new fitness trackers. The Charge 2 is an updated version of the Charge smartwatch. We use that term loosely because it is not technically a smartwatch, though it is pretty ’smart’ for a fitness band. However, the unit sells for a mere $149, about $200 cheaper than the average smartwatch. Fitbit also updated their budget line of wearable devices with the Flex 2. This model does not have a screen but is less than $100. It’s definitely a lot of functionality for the price. Both models look promising and trend of wearable mobile devices continues.
