    Interesting! It seems like a cross between a Fitbit and Oura ring with the sleep features and all. I was wondering what Fitbit would come up with all of the Pebble tech. I'm interested to say the least! No smart tech or health gadgets have caught my interest yet.

    Another payment option, like we need a new one. The world's ok with just ApplePay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay; no need to further confuse banks/people, and add a new potential security concern.

    It looks good, but I feel like this is a bit too direct in trying to take the Apple Watch down?

    If everything you just said Isn't available "right now"(in the next year) the time the Apple Watch 3 releases(3 Weeks) this product would not even compete with the new Apple device. And you have to upload music via computer… That's how I put music on my phone in 2006. It also looks very "techy" so someone who's more fashionable would not wear this at all. And the bands from this video are very boring and rubbery looking. Just my opinion.

    Fitbit should just go out of business should just go away because apple in 2015 etc… is the best smartwatch in the world and it is related and btw Fitbit compleatly copied apple with 1000 nits and alsoo the watch bands and even if it is, its coming out in 2017 which is a year later, it is like comparing galaxy note or s8 to iphone 7, its not fair they should compare iphone 8 with note 8 and s8…

    In a word, no. Biggest selling feature, 4 day battery life. But for the money, it doesn't have nearly the amount of features the Apple Watch has. If it was 200 instead of 300, they would sell a ton. For 300, eh.

    Dear Fitbit,
    Focus on fitness! Research better ways to track calories burned. Have a watch track calorie expenditure 24/7 not every 5 mins. If I want to take off for a quick Sprint I should be able to and have it be measured without messing with the watch.
