New Fitbit Can Monitor Your Stress Level

Fitbit, a company known for their fitness-centric smartwatches, just released a couple new models. The Versa model was updated and is now called the Versa 3. It retails for $230. They also unveiled a new model called the Fitbit Sense that sells for $330. The Sense has all the functions you’d expect in a Fitbit but adds a stress detection feature. Additionally, the device can monitor your body temperature to determine other things like ovulation. The Sense uses an algorithm to detect biological patterns that normally occur from stress and warn the wearer. It’s currently available for pre-order with units shipping in late-September.
