The Vital Bracelet will no longer be exclusive to Digimon, as Bandai will be bringing Ultraman and Kamen Rider over as well.
For those who are unfamiliar, the Vital Bracelet is a watch, fitness tracker and even a virtual pet toy, similar to that of Tamagotchi (which also has their own line of fitness trackers called the Tamagotchi Smart). As you exercise, the character in the Vital Bracelet, be it a Rider, Ultraman or even Ultra Monster (Ultraman’s enemies), can get stronger and obtain new forms.

Instead of Dim Cards, the Ultraman and Kamen Rider variants will have VBM Cards which contain the data for their respective characters and various evolutions.
The first VBM Card for Ultraman will feature Ultraman Tiga.
Vol. 1 VBM Card set for Ultraman will feature both Ultraman Zero and Zetton, but their exact character list has yet been revealed.
As for Kamen Rider, it will feature Kamen Rider Kuuga and his various forms.
Vol. 1 VBM Card set for Kamen Rider will feature both Kamen Rider Zero-One and Horobi, but their exact character list has yet been revealed.
Both Ultraman and Kamen Rider Vital Bracelets have a suggested retail price of 6,490 yen each (59.20 USD), not inclusive of their respective Vol. 1 VBM Cards. The Ultraman Vital Bracelet will be open for pre-orders on August 6, 2021 while the Kamen Rider Vital Bracelet is expected to release on December 18, 2021.
