All devices include a six-month Fitbit Premium membership for deeper insights and guidance. Fitbit Premium, which is included with all new device purchases for six months, takes your experience even further with additions like Daily Readiness Score and Sleep Profile to dive deeper into your stats and progress, and over 1,000 workout and mindfulness sessions to keep your mind and body active.

Fitbit also announced that it is bringing a new heart health feature to Ireland, Irregular Heart Rhythm Notifications, following CE Mark approval. Fitbit’s mission has always been to help make everyone in the world healthier and with the introduction of this feature, it is continuing to innovate to make the invisible, visible, bringing new health and wellness metrics to users.

The Irregular Heart Rhythm Notifications feature is powered by Fitbit’s PPG (photoplethysmography) algorithm. The feature passively assesses your heart rhythm in the background while you’re being still or sleeping. If there’s anything that might be suggestive of AFib, you’ll get notified via the Fitbit app so you can talk with your doctor for a more informed discussion and assessment.
