The slightly more advanced Inspire HR also offers heart rate tracking and Global Positioning System. Showing activity and sleep tracking, calories burned, and prompting wearers with reminders to get up and move, the features are quite basic.

FITBIT HAS SNEAKED out a new fitness tracker, but it's not one you'll be able to buy for yourself.

Fitbit hasn't announced any official pricing for these new devices, though it's apparently the company's cheapest device so far. It comes with a touchscreen display and can be used while swimming. The HR variant can also track sleep stages (light, deep, REM) and can also record real time pace and distance via user's smartphone Global Positioning System.

Fitbit Inspire's HR variant includes heart rate tracking and a couple of other features. It's water immune as much as 50 meters, guarantees as much as five days of battery life, and is available in black and sangria color choices.

The Taliban has refused to negotiate directly with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's government, calling it a "puppet" of the West. Officials have expressed concern that if US troops leave, Afghanistan security forces, already stretched thin, could crumble.

Fitbit now has over 6.8 million wellness program members that are using fitness trackers. A clip accessory is sold separately. The new Fitbit Inspire, a basic health-tracking device, is now available, but only through employers and health insurance providers who'll opt to avail the device in bulk. Interestingly, both the devices will be sold to a few companies and health insurance members.

Nothing much is known about these upcoming fitness trackers apart from the images leaked which also confirm that these are targeted towards kids fitness. The tracker looks like a fitness band meant for kids with blue and pink color option.

The Inspire can track sleep, however, and is advanced enough to show alerts like calls and texts as they come through from your phone.
