Fitbit Force review a wrist-worn pedometer with smartwatch aspirations

When you’re Fitbit, a fitness gadget maker at the top of its game, there’s always the difficult question of what comes next. The answer, at least for this company, was to take its successful Flex band, and push it into smartwatch territory (if only barely). The Force keeps the same basic design and feature set, but adds a few new flourishes, like a proper screen and an altimeter. In doing so, it also nudged the price up to $130. On paper, it sounds like a recipe for success. But if you’ve ever bought a high-end gadget, only to have the experience ruined by a single shortcoming (say a tiny, non-removable battery), you know that what works on paper doesn’t necessarily work in real life. So, the question isn’t whether Fitbit can succeed (we know it can); it’s whether it inadvertently screwed up its new fitness tracker. The answer is a bit complicated.​ by engadget
