Fitbit Inspire Specifications – Fitbit Inspire is the second version of smartband announced alongside the Inspire HR. It’s the cheaper version of Inspire HR, it got the same stylish, sleek and slim design as the Inspire HR but lacks a heart rate sensor and as such is deprived of some fitness tracking features (advanced calories burnt via fat burn recognition in heart rate zone and sleep stages).
However, it’s a fantastic smartband with a huge list of fitness tracking features, an elegant design, impressive battery life and a lot more cheaper.

Fitbit Inspire Features

- Waterproof Rating
- Fitness Tracking
- Notifications – Keeping You Connected
The Inspire comes in a stylishly slim and lightweight design. It looks quite very simple, not too complicated or rather way out of the box. It’s just exactly what a smartband should look like. It’s flexible, you should comfortably wear it all day long without getting uncomfortable on it.
The Fitbit Inspire like the Inspire HR is housed in a thermoplastic case which makes it quite very light, while the bands which are interchangeable are made of elastomer material. There are two bands in the box; a larger and smaller one. Changing the band doesn’t have to be a herculean task, it’s very easy to change and takes just a few minutes.
The Inspire is available in two colors; black and sangria, two adorable colors, but the Sangria color seems more stylish. You can choose from these options your preferred color. The clock face of the Inspire can be changed, from the Fitbit App dashboard, you should be able to choose from the available clock faces which allow you to redefine your style for the next workout session.
On the display, the Inspire display is powered by OLED which renders an outstandingly bright display that shouldn’t be a problem for you to view outdoors, while there is a single button in addition to the touchscreen support making the Inspire very easy to access. A swipe up shows up the available apps, while a swap down shows up your stats for the day and at the center is the home screen which shows the clock face.
There is no compromise either on the Fitbit Inspire battery life, Fitbit states it would last about 5 days on regular usage. They haven’t given us a reason(s) to think otherwise. The Versa, Charge 3 are just two from their ranks of wearables with impressive battery life. However, understanding that usage varies among users, you should expect anything in that range of 4-5 days which I think is awesome and should cover for extremes of exercise sessions.
The Inspire uses Bluetooth v4.0 for connecting to compatible devices. The Inspire is compatible with Android 5.0 or later, iOS 4s or later, iPad 3+ and Windows 10. Check if your device is compatible
The Inspire has 5ATM waterproof rating which makes it water-resistant up to 50 meters. So it’s safe to wear it to the pool or ocean and at the same time track swim duration.
For Fitbit, it’s all about accuracy and holistic fitness tracking of which they have become a household name. The Inspire is no exception, it comes with a 3-axis accelerometer but lacks a heart rate sensor. This is the main difference between Inspire and Inspire HR. The lack of heart rate sensor deprives the Inspire of some crucial fitness tracking features.
However, Fitbit Inspire can track quite a whole lot of activities. Its tracks sleep but not stages, it tracks your steps, distances, active minutes and calories burnt. SmartTrack automatically recognizes workouts like walks, runs, swims, bike rides and more then records them for you in the Fitbit app. The Inspire being swim-proof can also track your swim duration.
Unfortunately, the Inspire doesn’t have GPS inbuilt, but you can steel access GPS functions by connecting to your phone GPS which is great but might not be the best option in certain situations.
With the Inspire you won’t have to miss updates that matters to you either. It’s an amazing tiny beast. When connected to a compatible device, the Inspire via the on-board vibrator motor alerts when there is a new message, calls, schedules and other notifications from third-party apps. You can also set up alarms, sleep time and stopwatch.
