Fitbit has shipped its latest smartwatches with a lot of hardware but without software that will allow users to take full advantage of those. But that is about to change as Fitbit releases new Sense and Versa 3 software updates that bring Google’s help, improved air readability and other features.

Fitbit’s OS 5.1 comes exclusively on the Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches and the upgrade brings some of the features Fitbit promised during the launch. And one of them finally takes advantage of the speaker on smartwatches.

With this latest update, both Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 will be able to receive calls and use a microphone and speaker clock to handle calls from your wrist. In line with this, voice-to-text will be available for Android users who can use text messages on the wrist.

Google Assistant also finally comes with both Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 with Fitbit OS 5.1. The Fitbit app has given users the opportunity to use Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa automatic voice assistant on smartwatches. Alexa also adds sound answers to the latest software updates and Google Assistant will also provide this for both versions.

The latest software update also brings improvements in oxygen reading (SpO2) in Sense and Versa 3. Currently, SpO2 readings can only be done if you use a particular watchface and only while you are asleep. With the new update, readings can be automatically taken overnight no matter what watch you watch. Fitbit will also be releasing new SpO2 viewing sites later this year.
