The big picture: Fitness tracker sales to individuals have not been going so well for Fitbit, but corporate partnerships with healthcare businesses and enterprise clients are keeping the company afloat with opportunity for growth. Aside from these images, we have no other information regarding Fitbit's upcoming fitness trackers, but it's likely that the device will offer water resistance and some kid-oriented features (i.e. watch faces). The Inspire HR also comes with heart rate, sleep cycle, and cardio fitness level tracking. As these devices are targeted toward employers and insurance companies, pricing will vary from each deal. Fitbit claims the Inspire fitness band's battery can last up to five days on a full charge.

As their names suggest, the Inspire HR features a heart rate monitor, while the stock Inspire lacks this feature. While the product listing for the Inspire HR says that it comes with a silicon band, the Inspire has a clip accessory which is sold separately. "These special release trackers are available exclusively through Fitbit corporate, wellness, health plan, and health systems partners and customers of their organizations, participants, and members", Fitbit said on the official site for Inspire, though the product didn't get much of a flashy launch, probably because its heavy focus on commercial customers. Now, the company is working on a new fitness tracker, which seems to be targeting kids. Images of the upcoming fitness tracker have appeared online, which looks like a fitness tracker meant for kids in blue and pink colour options. Both the new trackers aim business users.
