What you need to know

  • Fitbit introduced the Fitbit Ace 2 Special Edition Minions, a sleep tracker aimed at young children.
  • It piggybacks off the popular minions brand and comes in a nice Minions Yellow.
  • Fitbit also announced software updates for the Fitbit Versa 3 and Sense.

Fitbit today announced a new Fitbit Ace model, the Fitbit Ace 3 Special Edition: Minions. It's a version of the already Minion-focused Fitbit Ace 3 that brings even more Miniony action to the watch.

Starting from $99, the Minions edition adds an exclusive, engraved accessory band in the iconic "Minions Yellow." There are also two new bands for the Ace 3 in Despicable Blue and Mischief Black. Finally, the company will add a new animated clock face, available exclusively on Ace 3 devices, aimed at making kids form healthy habits and illustrating their progress towards daily customizable goals for step count or activity.

Alison Ross Powers, Head of Global Strategic Partnerships for Fitbit at Google said:

Parents and kids love our Ace activity and sleep trackers for their engaging and motivating features that inspire kids to stay active and build healthy habits. Introducing Illumination's Minions to the Ace family brings fun, new Minions-inspired features that weave in even more personality and surprises into the Fitbit experience for families and kids, keeping them moving and happy alongside their favorite on-screen characters.

Fitbit will also be rolling out new updates to the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 from the second of June. These updates will add SpO2 tracking, customizable high and low heart rate notifications, as well as a new on-device clock face switcher.

New goal celebrations and expanded support for Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, and Thai in the notifications and on-device alerts round out the update.

The Fitbit Ace 3 was already one of the best kids smartwatches, as well as an alluring device with colors and a fun interface. This new model isn't entirely different internally, with most of the changes being the new yellow colorway, but it'll probably get kids who are more invested in the goofy cartoon characters more interested in fitness.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
