Visa Enables On the Go Payments With the New Fitbit Ionic

As far as they Flyers themselves are concerned, we're getting pretty much what we'd expect out of a pair of headphones made by a fitness company.

Fitbit signalled its intention to move into payments previous year when it bought the wearable assets of Coin, helping it move beyond its core fitness tracking service. The watch has all the fitness- and sleep-tracking features you've come to expect from Fitbit, as well as upgrades such as Global Positioning System, which kicks on automatically after you run for 2 minutes.

The watch also has a new sensor technology - relative SpO2 sensor - for estimating oxygen levels in the blood that have the potential to track sleep apnea among others.

The Fitbit Ionic is available for pre-sale on Fitbit.com starting today for $299.95.

Adidas is set to deliver a Fitbit Ionic special edition in 2018. The Fitbit app software development kit (SDK) will be open to developers in September 2017. The Flyers are rain, splash, and sweatproof thanks to Fitbit's "hydrophobic nano-coating", and come with swappable ear tips, wings, and fins so you can find a better fit than other one-size-fits-all earbuds out there. While some Fitbit devices are able to control what was playing on your phone, you can store up to 300 songs, podcasts and audiobooks on Ionic and play them in the new Music app. Ionic owners can also store MP3s on the watch.

You can pick between the Sport, Leather and Classic versions. Not only was the screen completely visible in direct sunlight, it was able to automatically detect when I stopped for traffic, and pick things back up once I started moving again-a handy feature for city runners.

Fitbit announced its new payments feature and Ionic along with a new scale and new wireless headphones.

You normally can't take a personal coach everywhere you go. There's a decent sized market for them, and Fitbit has done a relatively good job of grabbing share with products such as the Fitbit Charge and Blaze, though recently times have gotten tougher as large players like Apple (Apple Watch) and Google (Wear) have encroached on its turf. Over time, this will make the devices even more useful in preventative health care, said Fitbit's vice president of research, Shelten Yuen. Ionic continues to deliver on this promise by offering more personalized insights and guidance, coupled with an engaging experience and sleek design, to help drive meaningful behavior change and better health outcomes. Fitbit Pay will work with American Express cards and select Visa and Mastercards from supported banks. New wearables, like the Fitbit Ionic, address some of the priorities and concerns identified by survey respondents - including safety/security concerns, reducing friction when making a purchase and providing a way to pay without carrying a wallet. Fitbit has partnered with Pandora to allow Plus and Premium subscribers to auto-sync recent playlists to their Ionic for offline listening. The $130 Aria 2, also scheduled for an October release, has new algorithms for more-accurate results, plus a bigger and brighter display than the last-gen model has. While the design is bulky, I plan to live with the watch for a few more weeks, so stay tuned for my full review.
