If you’re still going strong with those New Year’s fitness resolutions (or if not), Fitbit wants to help you become a healthier version of yourself with its latest sale.
Essential reading: Top fitness trackers and health gadgets
The company’s two most popular trackers, Charge 3 and Versa, are on sale on Amazon to celebrate Presidents Day. This is an American federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on February 22, 1732.
The sale is 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.
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 on either of these two, 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 and the first really successful one. 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. It’s no wonder Fitbit has sold so many of these devices.
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 there is Connected GPS. The company has opted for this solution to keep the price down. There is on-board storage for music, too, and smartphone notifications.
