We haven’t heard much from Fitbit since it recalled the Force earlier this year because its wristband was causing contact dermatitis with some people. Given that by some measures, Fitbit owns half the fitness tracker market, the silence was noticeable. Now there’s starting to be word of what might come next.
The eagle-eyed Dave Zatz spotted three trademark applications from Fitbit for products called the PurePulse, the Surge, and the Charge. From the application, it looks like the PurePulse may be a heart monitor, the Surge a high-end running device with GPS, and the Charge an update/extension of the Force — possibly with a full display.
Remember: trademark applications means only slightly more than nothing and are certainly no guarantee that there will be products coming — let alone what the products will be. But hey: information!
