The Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 receive a new feature with their latest software updates
The Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 continue to receive new features, months on from their releases. Most recently, Fitbit introduced stress management functionality to the two devices, with Google Assistant support arriving in November 2020. Now, the company has rolled out Snore & Noise Detect to the Sense and Versa 3, which appears to build off 'Snore Detect Beta' for the Versa 2.
According to the screenshots published by 9to5Google, Fitbit's Snore & Noise Detect functionality monitors noise levels using your smartwatch's microphone. Fitbit claims that while the Sense and Versa 3 will only start measuring noise levels once they detect you are sleeping, enabling the feature 'impacts battery'. As a result, Fitbit recommends that you keep your Sense or Versa 3 topped up to at least 40% charge before using Snore & Noise Detect.
Additionally, the company stresses that you should not use the feature to 'diagnose or treat any medical condition', nor rely on it for medical purposes. In short, Fitbit has designed Snore & Noise Detect for people to manage their well-being. Managing your well-being comes at a price though, as Fitbit walls Snore & Noise Detect behind its Premium Membership plan. Currently, a Fitbit Premium membership costs US$79.99 annually or US$9.99 per month.
