  • Fitbit’s Upcoming Smartwatch Looks Retro With New Headphones

It so happens to be the case that Fitbit’s novel headphones and smartwatch are facing obstacles in their release.

Photos of Fitbit’s upcoming smartwatch and headphones have been leaked by Yahoo Finance. Both are due to come out this fall. Manufacturing issues had cropped up and dogged the steps of the company. The original planning was for the spring season this year. Yet such was simply not to be.

The Fitbit smartwatch bears an uncanny likeness to another device churned out by the company. This is the Blaze. It was retroactive in its outlook. Nothing about it announced the word “sexy” in any way.

Many of the employees of the organization had complaints about the product. The smartwatch is nicknamed Higgs. It consists of a bright color display screen. There is an intrinsic GPS chip in it too. A heart rate monitor exists in the mix as well.

Furthermore, touchless payments, music from Pandora and extended battery life between charging is also available on the device. The body is made of aluminum and users can change watchbands for $300 when it comes out.

A pair of Bluetooth earbuds lie in the cards as well. These earbuds come in two colors: Nightfall Blue and Lunar Gray. Their price is $150.

The Higgs Project has been quite a lengthy and rocky road trodden by the company. At first the antenna wasn’t in the right spot. This was part of many design flaws.

The Fitbit team thus went back to the drawing boards and redesigned the product. One of the biggest obstacles in the way was making the products waterproof. The smartwatch looks just like a Fitbit device too.

The software troubles were there right from the beginning. Earlier onwards the company had been partnering with another firm on the devices. Yet now it is working on a solo basis.

Fitbit may have put all it eggs in one basket. So the strategy that is advantageous for now is to keep making novel products some of which may make it big in the real world out there. Its smartwatch for one is stylish, bears a wonderful design and functions in an ideal manner.

Fitbit recently downsized 6% of its workers. It is currently facing a decline in its wearable division. The company must pull itself up by its bootstraps. It has to overhaul its manufacturing and design philosophy. Only this way can it actually manage to find the resources necessary to revamp its image for future times.
