That’s the good news. The bad news is now you don’t have any more excuses not to stick to your new fitness goals or weight regime. In addition to its two most popular devices, other discounts can be found on a range of Fitbit’s older fitness trackers, headphones and smart scales. You can pick up similar deals on Amazon, too.

Fitbit Charge 3
Fitbit Charge 3 is our pick as the best fitness band for the average person who does the occasional run here and there. It comes with a large OLED, high-res display, water-proofing and excellent 7 day battery life.
The Charge 3 SE is slightly more expensive, but it come with an NFC chip for secure payments on the go with Fitbit Pay.
You’ll find everything you need for 24/7 activity monitoring, along with a great software ecosystem. Last but certainly not least are the smart features. These have progressed so much that they are starting to blend the line between fitness tracker and smartwatch.
Versa is the San Francisco manufacturer’s second attempt at a smartwatch. The device comes with most of the sensors you’ll find on Ionic, but with its rounded edges, polished look and more compact form factor, it looks much better.
In terms of fitness tracking there’s everything you’d expect from a Fitbit device, along with capturing real-time stats on 20 different types of activities including swimming. And you’ll be able to keep tabs on all this in real-time on the gorgeous hi-res 300 by 300 pixel LCD touchscreen.
You can pick up the special edition version for a few more bucks. The difference between this and the regular version is that the special edition comes with Fitbit Pay and an extra classic band.
Admittedly there is the lack of built-in GPS, but you are unlikely to notice this unless you are an avid runner. Plus this helps to keep the price down. There is on-board storage for music too and smartphone notifications.
