The idea makes sense for employers as well as insurance companies, enabling them to encourage healthier living amongst staff - even though they might not all appreciate having their daily step count reported back to their bosses.

The device offers basic fitness tracking options including mobile alerts via Bluetooth, activity tracking, sleep tracking, calories monitor, move reminders, and goal celebrations.

The Fitbit company specializing in the development and release of various smart bracelets and medical devices and sporting areas, today officially announced its new model smart bracelet called Fitbit Inspire. The company says that it is the cheapest tracker yet from the company but won't reveal the price because it may vary considering it is bought and sold in bulk. The Inspire HR comes in three colour variants: black, lilac and white/black. There's additionally a barely extra superior model named the Fitbit Inspire HR, which provides 24/7 coronary heart fee monitoring, sleep levels monitoring, train modes, tempo, and distance control, and cardio health ranges. Up to five days of battery life is also promised, with water resistance of up to 50 metres too.

Later Saturday, authorities in both states announced compensation of $2,800 each to the relatives of those killed. Indian men drink so-called country-made liquor at a liquor shop in Calcutta, eastern India, in 2013.


Fitbit now has over 6.8 million wellness program members that are using fitness trackers.

CNBC reports that the company's new Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Inspire HR are devices that are exclusively available to businesses and health insurance members. The HR variant can also track sleep stages (light, deep, REM) and can also record real time pace and distance via user's smartphone Global Positioning System.

Fitbit silently introduced two new fitness trackers last month, the Inspire and Inspire HR, but both are aimed at business customers rather. However, the company now seems to plan to launch a fitness tracker for kids.
