Programs will include things from structured workout plans to relaxation tools, to actionable coaching. All of these are designed to promote healthier lifestyle habits. Getting more sleep as well as lessening your salt and sugar intake are a few key focuses.

Some of them will have beginner levels to ease you into things too.

The service does cost $9.99 a month, so it's worth keeping that in mind if you're considering checking it out alongside your other Fitbit products.

If you're planning on using Fitbit Premium fairly heavily, you can save a few bucks by getting the annual membership, which is $80. This is much cheaper than if you simply pay for a year's worth month by month as that equals out to $120.

If you're looking to grab the Versa 2 or the Aria Air, both of these can be preordered from Fibit.com. They'll also be available through Amazon and other retailers in the near future.
