Fitbit Pay incorporates technology from Coin, which the company acquired previous year. The Ionic's battery will last over four days on single charge.

In terms of other fitness features, the Fitbit Ionic offers the same features as other Fitbit devices, including automatic exercise tracking and sleep stage monitoring and the Ionic also launches with Fitbit Coach, a new personalised training app that will put workouts on your wrist, taking Blaze's FitStar to the next level.

The wearable affords a variety of features including contactless payments, the ability to store music locally, water resistance up to 50 meters, sleep tracking, improved heart rate tracking, smart notifications and 4+ day battery life (this drops down to just 10 hours if you use the Global Positioning System or play music).

Alongside Ionic, Fitbit also announced a pair of wireless headphones, a new smartscale, dubbed the Aria 2, and a new premium training service called Fitbit Coach, which is included with Ionic. The Fitbit app software development kit (SDK) will be open to developers in September 2017.

In some ways, it is not that hard for Fitbit to support Windows Phone, since apps are created to be mainly stand-alone and run on the watch, though there is support for companion apps on phones also.

Contactless Fitbit Pay will work eligible American Express, Mastercard and Visa redit and debit cards from top issuing banks in over 10 markets across the globe, including ANZ, Banco Santander, Bank of America, Capital One, HSBC, KBC Bank Ireland, Royal Bank of Canada, and US Bank with "more countries and banks planned soon". But the screen is fairly small considering the available real estate, which the thick bezels and Fitbit's logo on the bottom cut into.

As Fitbit's first smartwatch designed fully in-house, Ionic features new processes and materials that improve weight, fit, durability, breathability and daily wear - resulting in an extremely lightweight, ergonomic design comfortable enough to wear all day and night. "There is a lot they can do in the next 5-½ or 6 weeks before October rolls around", Llamas said. With a body made of light-weight aluminium and features that include Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System on-board, the device will seem like a promising prospect for those looking to get a quality product.

Ionic will cost $299.95 and will be available for presale starting Monday.

Ionic's housing is made of high-grade aluminum and is water-resistant up to 50 metres. There is also a $60 2-year protection plan. It'll go on sale in a variety of retail shops beginning in October of this year.

Of course, smartwatches are also fashion statements, so there will be several alternative bands available for purchase, ranging from $30 to $60, in materials such as rubber and leather.
