Secret Google rollout: FitBit activates controversial tracking function

Like some Posts on Reddit show, the rollout seems to take place arbitrarily and does not depend on a premium membership or the device.

The new feature is not too surprising, after all it is known that Fitbit fitness bands have been equipped with the necessary hardware for some time. These are infrared sensors that can measure the oxygen fluctuations in the blood. The aim is to make it easier for users with asthma, sleep apnea or heart problems to keep an eye on health problems. Until now, however, people had waited in vain for the practical function to be activated.

At the request of Engadget website Fitbit is now officially making the rollout. The manufacturer also points out that the data are relative numbers that are only reliable to a certain point. In a healthy person, for example, the oxygen fluctuations in sleep should not be too visible.

It is not yet known on which devices the feature will still be published and when it is available in Germany. But what can be said with certainty is that fitness bands will be equipped with more and more features in the future for the exact tracking of our health and vitality.
