Fitbit has a new tracker, but it’s prescription-only

Although we do not have much information on the same, we can expect the fitness tracker to come with water and dust resistant features along with some other important features like sleep monitoring, steps tracking and few others.

For now the Fitbit Inspire seems to be exclusive to the United States, but you might soon see it offered by your insurance company or your place of work. The slightly more advanced Inspire HR also offers heart rate tracking and Global Positioning System.

Fitbit has quietly launched a new fitness tracker but you can not buy it like the company's previous products. The plan is that the health tracker will likely be entirely sponsored and issued by the majority, whether or not by an organization that desires its workers to remain lively, or a medical health insurance supplier that wants its members to monitor their properly-being.

The Fitbit Inspire HR comes with heartbeat tracking among other added features. The device also comes with connected Global Positioning System which Fitbit says will track your pace and distance in real time.

Fitbit Inspire and its advanced version Fitbit Inspire HR have been introduced and are reportedly the company's cheapest as of date, but they are purchasable exclusively by corporate employees and health insurance members.

While many health insurance providers give out Apple Watches as a way of improving (and tracking) customer lifestyle, the Fitbit Inspire is considerably more bare bones. It is available in black, white/black, and lilac shade choices.

CEO James Park told CNBC, in his first public statement about the new tracker, that his company's revenue is increasingly tied to business customers.

In terms of design, Fitbit's Inspire and Inspire HR bear resemblance to the Charge 3 and Alra fitness trackers.
