It’s likely to be the Fitbit Ace 4.

Fitbit is a leading fitness tracker manufacturer with a global user base. However, despite its popularity, the company has released only a handful of new fitness trackers in recent years. 

The most recent launch from the company is Fitbit Inspire 3, launched in 2022, and we haven’t seen a launch since then. However, a recent report indicates Fitbit might be gearing up to launch at least one fitness tracker in 2023. 

What is this new 2023 Fitbit fitness tracker?

A new FCC filing indicates a launch is imminent. So, we expect Fitbit to launch this new 2023 fitness tracker pretty soon. However, we are yet to learn what the device actually will be like. 

According to the listing, the upcoming tracker has only Bluetooth connectivity support, meaning there’s no Wi-Fi and likely no NFC support. So, in other words, you won’t be able to use Fitbit Pay or Google Pay for contactless payments. 

In light of this leak, we only see two possibilities. It could be a sequel to the Fitbit Luxe, which originally launched in 2021.

At the time of its launch, the fitness tracker company had tried to market it as a luxury model, but it also didn’t feature NFC support, which didn’t make any sense. However, it is unlikely Fitbit would make the same mistake again. 

The other possibility we are looking at is the sequel to the Fitbit Ace 3. The Ace line is designed for kids, so the missing NFC is justified. 

Of course, there’s still a chance that we are looking at a completely new fitness tracker from the company. But we firmly believe this is Fitbit Ace 4.
