As for the Inspire range, the Inspire HR features heart rate tracking (as the name implies), automatic activity tracking and other Fitbit goodies such as guided breathing. Fitbit has cut these four products and in exchange now offers wristbands that can monitor sleep and physical activity, are submersible up to 50 m and have up to five days of battery.

"Since founding Fitbit nearly 12 years ago, we've focused on making health fun and achievable for everyone - regardless of fitness level or goals", said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.

Fitbit's (FIT) second smartwatch, the Versa, launched in February a year ago and has been the key to the company's mini-revival.

The four devices launched by Fitbit are named as Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, the Fitbit Inspire HR, Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Ace 2.

The "Lite" part refers to the removal of features like WiFi, NFC and music playback from the Fitbit Versa of a few months back. It has a durable and kid-friendly design - the device is swim-proof and stain resistant, and can be cleaned easily, according to Fitbit.

Aimed to make health and fitness accessible to more users across the globe, the company has unveiled Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, Fitbit Inspire HR, Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Ace 2 for Rs 15,999, Rs 8,999, Rs 6,999 and Rs 6,999, respectively. The Versa Lite features only a single side button, rather than the three found on the Versa. It has the essential health and fitness features to help you stay motivated, including automatic activity, exercise and sleep tracking, goal celebrations, Reminders to Move, and timer and stopwatch features to stay on track.

When it comes to deciding between the Inspire and the Inspire HR, there's one big question in particular: do you want your fitness tracker to be capable of heart rate monitoring? It includes all-day automatic activity, exercise and Sleep Stages tracking and also comes with more than 15 goal-based exercise modes, connected Global Positioning System and more.

Intended for children from ages 6 and up, the Fitbit Ace 2 is created to encourage healthy habits from an early age.

Finally, there's the Fitbit Ace 2. Its features include a new swimproof design, a bumper to protect the screen, animated clock faces and a variety of motivating activity challenges.
