Comparison between Apple Watch Series 6 Vs Fitbit Sense
1. Health Monitoring
Both gadgets come with O2 sensors that measure oxygen level in the heart. Both have electrocardiogram, both track sleep and exercise. But the Fitbit goes a little further with the ECG. What the Fitbit offers over and above these regular smart watch features is a skin temperature and stress tracking.
It is pertinent to mention here that detailed analytics with regard to their skin temperature tracking is only available when you buy a premium subscription. It’s worth noting the Apple Series 6 comes with handwash detection. When you are washing your hands, it does detect that and start a timer. If you continue for 20 secs, the recommended time for freeing your hands of germs, it does a small cheering and thumbs up. Just a fun feature keeping in mind the ordeals of 2020.
Software used in both watches is extremely cutting edge. The Apple Series watches use a software called WatchOS, the watch also has a built-in LTE that allows one to be able to use the watch even when you don’t have your iPhone close to you. The Fitbit uses Android OS 7.0 or higher.
The Apple watch offers slightly faster charging. Your watch can be charged from zero to 100 percent in 90 minutes. Most Fitbits need a couple hours to get fully charged.
An exclusive feature of the Apple watch is the alarm. When you wear the watch to bed, as you probably will anyway to track sleep etc, a haptic motor tap you on the wrist as the alarm goes off. No more waking up to annoying beeps or cacophonous ringtones. Your Apple Watch will wake you by slightly tapping your wrist.
