A new FitbitOS update has been released to the Fitbit Sense and the Versa 3 smartwatches. The new update brings a lot of new things, including the ability to track SpO2 levels from the Today dashboard on-wrist and hear audible responses from Google.
According to Fitbit’s announcement via a blog post, the SpO2 function can now be accessed from more places. You can now access the SpO2 function from the on-wrist Today dashboard.
The update also lets you enable audible responses from Google Assistant. This means if you enable this feature, you will get audio responses from, Google Assistant for your every query. For instance, if you ask to set an alarm, the virtual assistant from Google will respond “Done. Your alarm’s set for tomorrow at 7 am.” Also, if you ask Google how you slept, Google responds with: “Since yesterday, you slept a total of 8 hr and 15 mins.”
The FitbitOS update for the Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches make it easier for you to access the Clocks app by long-pressing the current face for a couple of seconds. Fitbit also touts new on-wrist celebrations have been added too.
One feature update is specifically for the Versa 3 smartwatch only. Fitbit reveals that the Versa 3 is getting on-device high and low heart rate notifications. Versa 3 can detect and send a notification if your heart rate is outside of your set heart rate thresholds.
