Fitbit is planning to introduce its first gPS fitness tracker at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas, the company has confirmed to The Verge.
The company’s gps tracker, dubbed the Pure Romance, will be available for $100 USD, the Verge has learned.
It’ll work with Fitbit Connect IQ, a new gps-based smartwatch that allows users to track their health via a GPS signal.
The Pure Romance is expected to ship sometime in the first half of next year, and the company’s founder and CEO, Tony Fadell, says it’ll offer an integrated GPS tracker, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope.
The device will be able to track running and cycling, walking, and biking, the CEO says, with a full suite of fitness metrics.
The Smartwatch will include an app for the Pure Romances “smart home” features, and it will be “connected to a range of other fitness trackers to allow the user to connect to the GPS network and see how their activity compares to others around them.”
Fadell also said the PureRomance would offer a “simple and easy to use interface,” similar to Fitbit Fitbit Surge, a smartwatch launched earlier this year.
