Under the Inspire brand, the regular Inspire, and the higher-end Inspire HR explored here, Fitbit has released two versions. The main difference, predictably, is the incorporation of Fitbit’s popular smartwatch or fitness tracker PurePulse heart rate sensor to the more costly edition.
The latest Inspire HR is meant to replace the original Fitbit Alta HR, shipping at a much more enticing price of £ 89.99 compared to the slightly questionable Alta HR price of £ 129.99 at the time of launch. With the more feature-rich Charge 2, this high price put the Alta HR in dispute. The latest lower launch price now ensures that the Inspire HR, the newest iteration in Fitbit’s activity tracker catalog, more reliably undercuts the Fitbit Charge 3.
Overall, the enhancements such as added water-resistance and a bigger monitor launched with the Inspire HR are promising changes. Too much so that for those looking to keep a more keen eye on their overall levels of fitness and exercise, it is now a perfect entry-level option, whilst still making use of the refined and easy-to-use companion software from Fitbit.
Keeping track of daily activity is Fitbit’s bread and butter, so it’s not surprising that it’s compatible with Inspire HR Basics. Inside is an accelerometer that does everything from counting steps to keeping an eye on your closed eye at night. Yes, accelerometers can be thrown into the theater by repetitive actions such as clapping hands or shaking mopeds, but overall it is as accurate as it gets regularly in everyday situations.
It revolves around more sophisticated tracking, making it clear that Inspire does not like to put muscle on HR Fitbit’s expensive offerings. There is no altimeter inside the starters, which will charge you 3 and up. These are used to determine altitude, which is useful beyond obtaining the glories needed for outdoor hill runs. Fitbit’s altimeter-packing trackers also track the ascending floor. Which helps to raise the stairs instead of taking the lift or standing on the escalator. Trying to hit your floor climbing target is a great way to promote healthy habits, so it’s a shame here.
Instead, there is a connected GPS, which allows you to piggyback the GPS built into your attached smartphone. The Alta HR does not have this option, so it is not a great choice for exercise.
Fitbit Inspire HR Design:
Fitbit has not made a basic departure for its design with the Inspire range. Easily, Inspire’s design is comfortable with a slightly larger and wider size between the outgoing Alta HR and Charge 3. But does not occupy the size of a slightly larger feature-packed Charge 3.
Undoubtedly, the Inspire HR reduces its sensitivity with extra size, but I like its more sophisticated edges and similar design. The overall tracker is a contrasting bezel, the body now fits more closely with the color. The corners where trackers find themselves with interchangeable watch straps are now well rounded. It’s a small touch, but the Inspire HR has a very low intensity. Inspire HR is Fitbit’s newest fitness tracker.
The Inspire HR uses a standard watch strap for fastening, which is different from the standard Inspire’s button fastener. From my experience, most people find the watch strap very easy to remember
The Inspire HR will fulfill your specifications in an enticing bundle. All bundled up in a tidy companion app for someone who does not need specialized fitness monitoring. In almost any way, Inspire HR is a huge improvement to the Alta HR and does so at a lower price point.
