Rumors point to a new device made for the little ones that work on a 4G connection.

Following the release of the Fitbit Charge 4 a few weeks ago, the Engadget reports that the company is preparing to release a new fitness tracker for kids that connects via a mobile data connection. The child-focused smartwatch will be part of the Ace and Ace 2 product line, where it will be launched alongside it.

It was reported that the new smartwatch will be based on the Fitbit Inspire tracker. This also includes a kids-focused design that includes different colors and watch faces. The design aspect is likely taken from the Doki smartwatch, one of the earlier fitness trackers made for kids. It makers, Doki Technologies, was acquired by Fitbit just before it was brought over by Google.

The new smartwatch will also likely to include voice and video calling and a dedicated connection to parent’s devices. Other specifications include IP68 water resistance along with a virtual assistant.

If Fitbit includes data connectivity on the smartwatch, then it could give way for the company to start implementing devices that utilize that connection. This will also make future Fitbit devices operate without having to be tethered to your smartphone all the time.
