Which Fitbit is best for you?

Fitbit was one of the first names in the wearable health tech market, starting out in 2009 with a clip-on activity tracker that counted steps, sleep time, and calories burned. This product heralded a wave of demand for fitness trackers, with other brands quickly getting in on the action. Since then Fitbit has redesigned its products to become smartwatches and activity trackers that can monitor various health concerns and allow smart notifications. 

If you’re unclear on the difference between smartwatches and activity trackers, smartwatches have bigger watch faces and are normally touch screen activated, while the smaller activity trackers are usually partly or wholly activated by buttons, and have more detailed insights available via the Fitbit app on your phone. Whether you have a specific fitness goal, or perhaps you've been wondering how to run faster, a Fitbit can be a great way to track your progress. 

Fitbit has a wide range of products to choose from, and there are some great Cyber Monday Fitbit deals available right now. If you’re looking for a simple watch with just the essentials, the Charge fitness trackers start at around $100 / £72, while at the other end of the price range the Fitbit Sense has a wide range of functions, and retails at about $300 / £217. If you’re keen to get your whole family moving, the Fitbit Ace range is designed for children and has some fun functions including step counts and family challenges. The Ace 3 even has fun animated watch faces! 

If you want to buy a Fitbit tracker with similar looks and functions to an Apple Watch, then the Versa 3 and the Sense are your closest choices. The Fitbit Sense even comes with an electrodermal (EDA) sensor to track your stress levels, making it a great option if you’re looking to make the most of the mental health benefits of exercise. The Fitbit app also includes meditation tools you may find helpful. 

In this round-up, we’ve outlined a selection of Fitbit models in more detail and the best Fitbit deals so that you can make the right decision for your needs and save some money along the way.  

Best Fitbit deals

Fitbit Versa 3 

This smartwatch from Fitbit looks like the usual Versa design but has rounded edges and is designed with buttons for a sleeker finish. Like all Fitbits, it tracks steps and calories, but with this model, you can leave your phone at home, as you can pick up your notifications via the watch and use it for contactless payments via Fitbit Pay. 

It’s water-resistant up to 50 meters - so as long as you’re not dive-bombing into the pool it will track your calories as you swim. The SmartTrack feature also means you don’t have to indicate which exercise (with 20 modes in total) that you’re doing; instead your Fitbit will recognize it for you. 

The updated Versa model has built-in GPS, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, along with the standard features such as heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking. One of its standout features is the longer battery life – it can last up to six days without charging, and it also only takes 12 minutes to fully charge, which is great if you’re in a hurry.

Fitbit Charge 5

The newest release from Fitbit combines the best of the brand’s other models all in one good-looking and high-tech device. The Fitbit Charge 5 is lightweight and easy to use, and you can enjoy inbuilt GPS, contactless payments, excellent heart rate monitoring as well as sleep tracking and monitoring. This is one of its best features, giving you access to detailed information including graphs, with insight into how to improve your sleep patterns.

It also has an EDA (electrodermal activity) sensor, which measures stress levels through your skin’s temperature. If you’re feeling hot, cold, or clammy it can make sense of why this is happening over time. 

The fitness tracker also comes with a free six-month subscription to Fitbit Premium, giving you advanced analytics about your fitness, health and sleep, as well as guided programs and coaching. 

Fitbit Ace 3

The Fitbit Ace 3 is specifically designed for children aged six and over and features both activity and sleep tracking. Similar to its predecessor the Fitbit Ace 2, it is water-resistant up to 50 meters but has a much longer battery life – up to eight days. 

It’s slightly chunkier and a bit more expensive than the Ace 2, but we think it’s worth the extra dollars. That’s down to the touchscreen that features fun, animated clock faces, including aliens and unicorns, which come alive when you exercise. The fitness tracker has a bedtime reminder and sleep tracking feature designed to help children develop healthier habits.

Over on the Fitbit app, parents can look at their children’s activity, and there’s a kids’ view where they can see their daily activity, as well as access badges and change the clock faces. Movie fans will love the fact you can buy a Minions embossed strap to go with the Ace 3. Older children will love that they can use the Fitbit Ace 3 with their smartphones to get call alerts and short text messages – something that parents can also control via the app.

Fitbit Sense

This touchscreen smartwatch has a big focus on emotional health and wellbeing, as well as tracking the usual things like steps, calories, heart rate and workouts. Built-in GPS helps track outdoor sports like running and hiking, while if you’re worried about getting sick, you can monitor your health via the skin temperature tracker, with blood oxygen levels also tracked at night.

Like many fitness trackers, the Fitbit Sense has an ECG sensor to monitor heart health, but it’s the EDA (electrodermal activity) tracker for stress that we really love. It measures the sweat on your skin to assess your EDA responses (but note, physical stress like exercise and heat can also affect this).

The only downside is that many of the mental wellbeing features on the Sense are only available to Fitbit Premium subscribers ($9.99 pm / $79.99 a year). The good news is you can enjoy a free six-month trial, and then cancel your subscription if you don’t want to continue. Like all Fitbits, it has an excellent battery life and only needs charging every six days and includes voice controls via Alexa and Google Assistant. You can also pay for things when you're out and about using Fitbit Pay, provided your bank is among those supported by the feature. 

Fitbit Luxe 5

Fashion fans will love the Fitbit Luxe 5, with its slender design that makes it look more like a piece of jewelry than a smartwatch. It comes in lots of different styles including a limited-edition model made in collaboration with jewelry brand Gorjana, which boasts a polished gold finish.

The Fitbit Luxe 5 has all the basics you expect from a fitness tracker, including step count (although not floors climbed, disappointingly), exercise modes and accurate heart rate monitoring. It has a touchscreen and impressive battery life, but because it’s so tiny, it can be hard to read and there’s no GPS. But if you take your phone out with you on a workout, you can still track speed, pace and location. Detailed sleep analysis can be found via the Fitbit app with this tracker too, along with stress management tools. The model also comes with six months of Fitbit Premium, giving you deeper insights into your health and wellbeing.

Best Fitbit accessories deals

Want to change your Fitbit band to suit your style? There are a ton of interchangeable straps made from all different materials that you can buy. Choose from sports-style models and leather to woven reflective bands designed for runners. We love the breathable silicone straps that add a pop of color to your Fitbit, and the hook and loop bands are a good choice for a comfortable fit on the wrist.

If you prefer your Fitbit to look more like a standard watch than a fitness tracker, then the Luxe range of accessories is for you. It includes a stainless steel mesh band, a link bracelet and double-woven bands to really make a fashion statement.

Fan of eighties style? You can now get a leather scrunchie band, handcrafted with Horween leather and available in classic black. Fitbit also sells a set of branded headbands made with a silicone grip strip ($19.95 for three) to keep your hair out of your way when training.
