Introduced alongside the Fitbit Inspire 3 and Fitbit Versa 4, the Fitbit Sense 2 appears to be a solid upgrade from the original 2020 Fitbit Sense. We summarize all information.

When will the Fitbit Sense 2 be released?

The Fitbit Sense 2 will be launched in the fall, although the exact release date has not yet been determined. We suspect it will be sometime in September or October judging from previous releases. The Fitbit Sense 2 can now be pre-ordered directly from Fitbit here. It says it will ship around September 29, 2022.

How much does the Fitbit Sense 2 cost?

The Fitbit Sense 2 costs 299.95 euros. The smartwatch is available or can be pre-ordered in a variety of color combinations for the case and bracelet. And there are various leather and sport straps to buy.

What features does the Fitbit Sense 2 offer?

The updated Sense 2 replaces the original Sense in the Fitbit lineup and features sensors to monitor heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV), and skin temperature. It’s also the first time Fitbit has incorporated what’s known as a body response sensor.

The Sense 2 is 10 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than the Sense and features a physical button on the left edge where the original had a capacitive button with vibration feedback. Fitbit promises up to six days of battery life, but that depends on usage and whether you use features like the always-on display.

The smartwatch aims to give owners an overview of their health and psychological well-being and comes with software designed to help with stress management.

Like the first Sense watch, the Sense 2 features a metal frame around the display, which is used to measure Electrodermal Activity (EDA) on the skin to measure stress. This is done by placing the palm of your hand on the frame while the watch takes a reading.

The Sense 2 has an additional body reaction sensor that measures continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) throughout the day. In connection with the on-site EDA, heart and skin temperature measurements, it should give you a better overview of your moods and stress factors.

In the updated software, the Sense 2 can now provide advice on how to combat stress, rather than just measuring stress. When the watch detects what Fitbit calls a “body reaction” to something, it sends a notification to alert the wearer. “These body responses can be triggered by many different things, whether it’s stress, excitement, or something that triggers a stress response in the body, like caffeine,” explains Fitbit. The notifications are designed to raise awareness and in turn, using the Fitbit app, can provide advice on how to respond to stress and understand what’s stressing you out. They can be delivered immediately, at the end of the day or at the end of the week.

Sense 2 can deliver alerts about abnormal heart rhythms, a feature that can detect signs of atrial fibrillation (Afib). This technology requires certification by the local health authority, so it only works in approved countries. The Sense 2 function will be available in the following countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, USA, Belgium, Canada, Chile, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and Great Britain.

Sleep tracking and training measurements

Sense 2 also tracks sleep, like many Fitbits do, and can provide your personal sleep profile, a feature that launched earlier this year. The catch, like other Fitbit products, is that deeper insights and trends from your data are only accessible if you pay for a Fitbit Premium subscription. The Sense 2 can be tested free of charge for six months with the premium subscription, after which it costs 8.99 euros per month or 79.99 euros per year.

As well as being responsible for mental health, the Sense 2 can also take all the training measurements you would expect from a health-focused wearable. You can track up to 40 different types of exercise with the Fitbit Sense 2, with 20 new modes added, including dancing and weightlifting. Thanks to the integrated GPS, you can run, walk or cycle without your phone and still record your route.

The software has also transitioned to a tile-based user interface that can be more customized to give you personalized information.
