As more and more players enter the market wearables are becoming cheaper, but it is still the big brand names which dominate sales. This is for a reason. Hardware can sometimes be easier to emulate than software and it is companies such as Fitbit, Garmin, Samsung and Apple that still offer the better overall package.
Fitbit has released in 2020 Sense, Versa 3 and Inspire 2. Charge 4 is still our recommendation for someone looking for a fitness watch. But Inspire 2 is an intriguing alternative.
Fitbit Versa Lite
When it comes to features, devices in the Versa range put fitness first. They come with everything you’d expect from a Fitbit, along with capturing real-time stats on 20 different types of activities including swimming.
If you don’t need built-in GPS Versa 2 is a great option. If you do need it then Versa 3 is the obvious choice.
Versa Lite is the more affordable version of Fitbit’s popular smartwatch. It doesn’t have on-board Wi-Fi and on-board storage for music of its big brothers but comes with everything else.
All things considered, Versa is a great smartwatch. It’s simple to use and comes with most things the average person would want from a fitness device.
Fitbit Charge 3
The Fitbit Charge is one of the best fitness bands for the average person. It comes with a large OLED, high-res display, water-proofing, excellent 7 day battery life and a great software eco-system.
You’ll find everything you need for 24/7 activity monitoring. If you don’t need built-in GPS or payments on the go, Charge 3 is the option to go for. If you do need these features than you’ll need to shell out for Charge 4.
Outside of fitness, the Charge range comes with some smart features. These have progressed so much that they are starting to blend the line between fitness tracker and smartwatch.
With its blocky, retro design, Ionic may not be a looker but at least it packs some decent specs under the hood. When it comes to activity monitoring, the watch offers quite a bit.
For outdoor fitness tracking, the built-in GPS/GLONASS will keep tabs on your pace, distance, elevation and split times. Fitbit has, however, taken its first real smartwatch beyond the fitness tracking environment. You get 2.5GB of internal storage for music, notifications and payments.
