Fitbit Force fitness announced for $130, brings clock and caller ID capabilities

Fitbit today announced a new addition to its line of wearable fitness products called the Force. The Force resembles more of a smartwatch because it not only offers tracking but includes a small dark display that tells the time and delivers caller ID information. Fitbit basically revamped its Flex wearable it came out with a few months back.

“We are continuously looking for ways to take wireless tracking devices and wearable technologies to the next level, and I feel strongly that Force, with its sophisticated design and instant and easy access to all your daily activity right on your wrist, delivers on the promise of what a next-generation activity tracker should be,” said James Park, CEO and Co-Founder of Fitbit.

What’s even more impressive is Fitbit claims the Force can last up to ten days on a single charge. The Fitbit Force will launch in 3 to 4 weeks for $129.95, according to Fitbit’s press release. So we’re hoping this bad boy will become available by the start of the holiday season. Unfortunately, users can only sync Fitbit products with a few Android devices, including the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2 and OG Galaxy Note 10.1. We hope the fitness company steps its game up and bring compatibility to more Android handsets.
