Comparison between Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Sense 2Let's go a little deeper into the comparison and the differences in detail.
Optics: The physical buttonVisually, there is little difference between the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Sense 2. Both smartwatches still come with a qudratic design, which is characterized by rounded edges. Same as it is the case with the Fitbit Versa. Overall, however, the Fitbit Sense 2 is thinner and also lighter geworden.
In comparison, however, a physical button for operation can only be seen in the Fitbit Sense 2, the successor to the Fitbit Sense. Incidentally, this difference is also in the comparison of the Fitbit Versa 3 and Versa 4.
The Bedinung with the older Fitbit Sense and the Versa 3 worked via a kind of touch button. Here there were probably various difficulties, which are to be ironed out with the Fitbit Sense of the second generation.
By the way, the bracelets of the Fitbit Sense are compatible with those of the Fitbit Sense 2. You can even use the wristbands of the Fitbit Versa 3 and Versa 4.
Google Maps and Google WalletFitbit has been acquired by Google. Nevertheless, the Fitbit Sense 2 still has the Fitbit OS installed, instead of Google's Wear OS. The operating system is characterized by the fact that it is optimized for the operation of a fitness watch. The advantage is the relatively long battery life. This is both the Fitbit Sense, as well as the successor, the Fitbit Sense 2, up to 6 days.
The user interface has been revised in the newer Fitbit Sense 2, however, and is thus designed to be more practical.
In addition, the Fitbit Sense 2 allows the use of Google Maps. In my opinion, really extremely practical. So you can be navigated dirkt over the wrist.
In addition, Google Wallet will be available with the Fitbit Sense 2. With the Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Pay is used to enable contactless payment directly via smartwatch. Advantage with Google Wallet is that more banks are unterstüzt and with most Google users anyway in the use is.
EKG Sensor: OptimizationThe big difference ziwschen the Fitbit Versa 4 and Fitbit Sense 2 is the ECG sensor. However, this was also already available on the Fitbit Sense.
With the successor, however, this was optmiert and should provide even better results. Among other things, the position of the sensors was changed here. So the Fitbit Sense 2 overfolds your heart rhythm on signs of atrial fibrillation and protects so against cardiac arrhythmias.
By the way, it is interesting that Fitbit now provides the ECG function without Fitbit Premium. This was not the case at the beginning and a very big point of criticism.
Voice assistantInteresting in the comparison of voice assistants is that Google Assistant is no longer available on the Fibit Sense 2. Alexa from Amazon, on the other hand, is wohol available on the Fitbit Sense, as well as the Fitbit Sense 2. Especially considering that Fitbit was acquired by Google, this is an exciting development. However, in my opinion, Google's voice assistant is also much less represented.
Training ModesCompared to the Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Sense 2 offers you 20 more training modes, making a total of 40 training modes available on the new Smartwach. Among them are modes like HiiT, weightlifting and cross-training. These are options that users have wanted for years.
Fitbit Sense or Fitbit Sense 2: Which is better?In comparison, the Fitbit Sense 2* is better overall. You get an optimized ECG sensor, a sleeker design, as well as a few new features:
- Google Wallet
- Google Maps
- 40, instead of 20 training modes
Especially Google Maps is a very handy feature and also the improved ECG sensor speak for themselves. Furthermore, however, the Fitbit Sense is also a good choice. If you can do without the new features, you can save enormously with the buy the Fitbit Sense* by the launch of the Fitbit Sense 2.
Don't need an ECG sensor, then you should definitely take a look at the Fitbit Versa 3 or Versa 4. The difference between the Fitbit Versa 4 and Sense 2is only in the ECG sensor.
