Fitbit refreshes wearable line-up, launches four new devices

The smartwatch is swim-proof in nature and comes with a battery life of four days.

The Inspire and Inspire HR are similar to the existing Alta and Alta HR, but the new devices have a plastic body and thicker bezels, and are $30 cheaper than their metal-bodied Alta counterparts. The current Versa bands are also compatible with the Versa Lite so you'll have even more options for customisation.

The Fitbit Versa Lite Edition has a touch screen and offers a clear view of the outside.

The Fitbit Versa Lite is a new smartwatch that looks a lot like the standard Versa, though there are important differences. Apple has them, Samsung has them, Garmin has them, Huawei has them, but the one that has probably the most familiar is that of Fitbit, which exists mostly just for wearable technology built to monitor and advise of your health.

This device allows users to track exercise, heart rate, and sleep for £149.99.
