Fitbit OS 3.0 review and walthrough for the Fitbit Ionic

A review for the Fitbit OS 3.0 on the Fitbit Ionic and the Fitbit Versa. I go through how to install the new Fitbit update and all of the new features of the Fitbit OS 3.0 update. The Fitbit Ionic may not be the best smartwatch tracker in 2019 but I believe it’s going best smart fitness tracker in 2019. I wonder if this has any effect on the Fitbit Charge 3.
