Fitbit Sense 2 and Fitbit Versa 4 leak with spring launch date targeted
9to5Google has shared a photo that it claims is of the Fitbit Versa 4, one of two smartwatches that the company has in the pipeline. According to the website, Fitbit has ditched the Versa 3's touch-sensitive surfaces for a physical button, seen on the leaked image's right-hand side. Little else has changed visually between the Versa 3 and Versa 4 though, implying that existing accessories will remain compatible with the new model.
This is not the first time that 9to5Google has revealed details about the Versa 4. In March, the website disclosed that an upcoming smartwatch codenamed 'Hera' or 'Rhea' would feature a display with a resolution of 336 x 336 pixels. Apparently, the Versa 4 will retain Fitbit OS too, rather than adopting Wear OS 3. The same is expected of the Sense 2, which is believed to have gained ECG capabilities. Unfortunately, a hands-on photo of the Sense 2 has not leaked yet.
9to5Google adds that Fitbit hopes to launch the Sense 2 and Versa 4 this spring. If that is the case, the company would need to announce the pair by June 21. Incidentally, Google will host its I/O 2022 conference next week, where it is rumoured to unveil Wear OS 3 and the Pixel Watch. While it seems unlikely that Fitbit will showcase the Sense 2 and Versa 4 at this event, the lack of Wear OS 3 on either device seems strange when Google's smartwatch operating system will contain Fitbit integrations.
