Wearables brand Fitbit has launched its Ionic smartwatch in the UAE, promoting a personalised health and fitness platform.

Fitbit has been experimenting with optical sensors and machine earning tools to address a common sleeping disorder, sleep apnea. The new Ionic now features a relative peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (Sp02) sensor, this allows the Fitbit to track data that can identify the disorder.

The wearable also features GPS tracking, swim tracking, on-device workouts, improved heart rate tracking, as well as on-board music, smart notifications, and apps. The smartwatch is also water resistant up to 50 metres, and it has a five-day battery life.

James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit, said: "With Ionic, we will deliver what consumers have not yet seen in a smartwatch - a health and fitness first platform that combines the power of personal and deeper insights with our most advanced technology to date, unlocking opportunities for unprecedented health tracking capabilities in the future."

Other features include a personal trainer with the Fitbit Coach app, a running companion, and the device can automatically track steps, calories, and floors climbed.

Fitbit Ionic is available at Virgin Megastore, Sharaf DG and Sun & Sand Sports for AED 1399. The wearable also comes in three colour combinations: silver grey with a blue grey band, smoke grey with a charcoal band, or burnt orange tracker with a slate blue band.
