Now that the Google Pixel is coming to the Netherlands, the accompanying smartwatch Fitbit Sense 2 will follow. And this device, which is now for sale in the Netherlands for the first time, has a lot to offer.
Smartwatch especially for health
The Fitbit Sense 2 is, as you can already see from the name, a smartwatch that is mainly aimed at people who are very busy with their bodies and want to improve their health. Very wise, because without a healthy body you don’t start much.
After an unfortunate start with the Ionic, Fitbit is well on its way up. Compared to previous Fitbits, even if not bad smartwatches, the Fitbit Sense has clearly improved. With some thoughtful improvements, the Sense builds on the previously successful Versa line.
More than ever, Fitbit Sense is focused on monitoring your physical functions and improving your health. With over six days of battery life, hundreds of apps available, and a contactless payment feature, this is a smartwatch that represents quite a bit of value to a user.
ECG sensor and stress sensor in the Fitbit Sense 2
As you see in other top smartwatches, there is an ECG sensor built into this phone. It detects signs of atrial fibrillation, which can be life-saving.
But what you can really call the killer function of this smartwatch is the functionality in the field of detecting signs of stress in your body. Stress is an important disease factor and also threatens your happiness in life. Thanks to this smartwatch, you can identify and avoid stressful situations. So you immediately know why you don’t feel well.
Fitbit Premium almost a must with the Fitbit Sense 2
Unfortunately, many of these more advanced features require a subscription to Fitbit Premium, because obviously Google wants to earn a regular income from its customers. When you purchase the Fitbit Sense 2 smartwatch, you get six months of Fitbit Premium for free. Usually this costs €9 per month.
Thanks to this device, you can also work on a better night’s sleep. Based on 10 sleep characteristics, such as blood oxygen level, body temperature and heart rate, the app calculates your sleep score. The device can even determine how much time you spend in light sleep, deep sleep and REM sleep.
Conclusion Fitbit Sense 2
The Fitbit Sense 2 is a nice smart watch and for that matter one of the best smartwatches currently on the market. As befits any self-respecting American multinational, Google is trying to do everything it can to allow buyers of this pricey watch, with a suggested retail price of around € 300, to also spend extra per month.
In return, you get a device that can improve your health and help discover dangerous hidden conditions such as high stress levels, heart problems and sleep apnea earlier. So it is a useful investment in your health, albeit quite a large one.
