Fitbit’s next Apple Watch competitor doesn’t look too ugly

The Apple Watch might finally be getting some worthy competition from Fitbit.

Images of Fitbit’s new wearable leaked online this week and even though it doesn’t pack all the features of Apple Watch Series 3, it actually looks pretty decent.

Take a look at the lineup:

Wow! A Fitbit that doesn’t look dorky!

Wareable says the images are of the upcoming Blaze 2. The new smartwatch is supposed to launch this year and is going to be marketed for mass appeal.

The Blaze 2 will reportedly run Fitbit OS software that debuted on the Ionic, which didn’t sell as well as Fitbit hoped. Fitbit may go with a different name for this watch. It is supposedly smaller than the Ionic in order to appeal to more female wearers.

The report claims the leaked Fitbit will come with water resistance up to 50meters. There will be four color options: black, silver, rose gold and charcoal. GPS won’t be offered on the device but it will have a heart rate monitor.

No word on pricing but Fitbit will likely put it closer to $200 to make it more competitive with Apple Watch.
