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. In 2021 we seen the Ace 3 for kids along with the Fitbit Luxe. As its name implies, the latter is a more fancy take on the Inspire range. That one, along with Charge 4 is our recommendation for someone looking for a fitness band. The Versa range or Sense is the way to go if you’re after a smartwatch.
Luxe represents a nice upgrade over the Inspire range not just in looks but also in functionality. What many consider to be the most attractive Fitbit to date packs all the basic fitness tracking goodies along with 24/7 stress management and blood oxygen levels. You can view all of this on the gorgeous AMOLED touchscreen display.
Luxe is rated 5 ATM as far as water-resistance and it will run for about 5 days on a single charge. There’s no built-in GPS but you do get Connected GPS.
If you’re after a slimmer, more discreet experience than the rest of Fitbit’s range Luxe is the obvious choice. It packs an impressive set of features at a reasonable price.
For the first time, Amazon is currently running a sale on the latest Fitbit device. You can check it out on the link below.
This is the one to go for if you want absolutely everything Fitbit has an offer. It looks like Versa 3 but comes in a more premium design. If you’re wondering if you’ll miss out on some functionality if you buy Sense instead of Versa, don’t worry. Because you are not. But you will get some extras.
The first worth mentioning is ECG. Taking a leaf out of Apple’s book, there’s finally a Fitbit that can take your electrodiagram. This is done by placing your fingers on the corners of the case.
The second big upgrade is 24/7 stress tracking. This takes into consideration readings from an an electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor, as well as resting heart rate, HRV, temperature and more.
Fitbit Charge 4
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 an option to go for (check price on Amazon). 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.
Fitbit Ace 3
For a long time Fitbit didn’t have a fitness tracker for kids – now it has three. The third generation is meant for those 6 and above. It is rugged so can take quite a beating and comes with proper water resistance and a large screen.
The tracker dishes out rewards for moving with celebratory messages and fun, collectible badges. And, if you have a Fitbit yourself you can promote a bit of friendly family competition.
This is an iterative upgrade over the second generation. Improved battery life, a slightly better display, some more clock faces including animated ones are the main changes. Fitbit says there are also more accessory band options as compared to before.
