The idea makes sense for employers as well as insurance companies, enabling them to encourage healthier living amongst staff - even though they might not all appreciate having their daily step count reported back to their bosses. The Fitbit Inspire is nowhere close to as superior because of the Fitbit Versa, a health tracker that acts rather more like a smartwatch in comparison with the corporate's earlier units. During October last year it posted its first profit after two years due to increase in device sales and enterprise business.
