Final version of Fitbit smartwatch leaks in press renders

Fitbit acquired two smartwatch companies before launching a product of its own: Pebble and Vector Watch. Although a new Fitbit smartwatch was supposed to make its debut in Q2, the company announced the wearable device is on track for a Q4 release, just in time for the holiday shopping season.

A handful of pictures showing the upcoming Fitbit smartwatch leaked out back in May, so if you've seen those images, then you won't be surprised by those that surfaced today.

The folks over at Wareable published a few press renders of the Fitbit smartwatch showing the device from different angles. The images confirm the wearable will be available in various color options: a silver case with navy strap, a rose gold case with blue strap and a dark case with black strap.

The source that provided these pictures claims this is the final design of the Fitbit smartwatch, so what you see now is what you'll get later this year. Notice that the smartwatch will feature the same button configuration as the Fitbit Blaze, as well as an optical heart rate sensor.

Aside from the traditional smartwatch features, Fitbit's wearable is expected to offer some nifty fitness features as well. Software-wise, Fitbit has already confirmed that its smartwatch will run its own app platform at launch, but an SDK (software development kit) will be released so that developers can start creating apps.

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 looks a lot better than this.

No, they will never get away with rectangular screens in the next 5-10 years. Apple can get away because it has trained his sheeple for many years to accept anything, but not others.

When you wear something on your body (like a watch), an organic shape that blends with the body is much preferred to a "synthetic" shape like an angular shape.

WOW Six comments without s**tting on Apple. @Cat97 Good job killing that.

Also, You have a choice to like what you like. Don't mind what others like. Focus on you.

After all, aren't we all "Sheepies"?

Ew, looks like someone need to resign for this ugly aesthetic. Seems like a grade school drawing coming into life. How is this gonna conpete against other low-cheap wearables out there? Not even a chance for me.
