Fitbit has said these corporate customers have become increasingly important to them, with over 6.8 million patients, employee and health plan members signed up for wellness programs with incorporate Fitbit trackers, but until recently their efforts have mainly been software based - this is the first time Fitbit has created dedicated hardware for the market. Available in simple black or white, the band is swim-proof and offers basic tracking like activity, sleep, and calories burned, plus smartphone alerts.

Fitbit has unveiled a new Inspire fitness tracker, but is not going to be selling it in retail stores or online. The tracker comes with a touch screen for interaction and can be used while swimming. The Fitbit Inspire HR can also track sleep stages (light, deep, REM) and can record real-time pace and distance via your smartphone's Global Positioning System. However, the company now seems to plan to launch a fitness tracker for kids. While the product listing for the Inspire HR says that it comes with a silicon band, the Inspire has a clip accessory which is sold separately.

The Fitbit Inspire is aimed at businesses and health insurance companies, according to the report, who will give them to employees and customers to encourage them to stay healthy.
