Fitbit Ionic 2: what we want to see


The Fitbit Ionic isn't quite the all singing, all dancing mash-up of fitness tracker and smartwatch you might have been hoping for, as our 3.5-star review shows. It's not without its merits though, and there's a lot of potential for improvement, potential that we hope will be met in the likely Fitbit Ionic 2. We've already seen the second smartwatch from the company in the form of the Fitbit Versa, but that's a separate line of products so we're confident we will one day still see a Fitbit Ionic 2. With that in mind we've created a wish list of the things we want to see, but before that, here's what we've heard and suspect about the Fitbit Ionic 2 so far. We don't know for sure that there will even be a Fitbit Ionic 2, but Wareable reports that the company's CEO, James Park, has confirmed that it plans to launch a range of new smartwatches, and while the Fitbit Ionic 2 wasn't named it's likely to be among them. We've already seen the company introduce the Fitbit Versa this year, but it may be we see a new iteration of the Ionic later in 2018. Assuming there is a Fitbit Ionic 2 our only real guess at its launch date so far is potentially around a year after the original Fitbit Ionic, which mean a launch in or around September 2018.
