Many people associate the best Fitbits with the best fitness trackers, mainly because the California-based fitness company is the largest player in that market by a huge margin. By getting a Fitbit, you know you’ll get a decent fitness wearable for a good price.
You can get cheaper trackers, but Fitbit has a well-deserved reputation for the quality of what it sells in terms of build and app support. Below is the list of all the best Fitbit watches, bands and trackers, reviewed and ranked by T3’s resident Fitbit experts. Back in the day, Fitbit started with basic pedometers that clipped onto sports bra straps or waistbands; it’s now moved up through a variety of bands to produce sophisticated devices that track everything from runs via GPS to workouts via heart-rate monitors to even menstruation – via user diary entries rather than any sensor, admittedly.
Some Fitbit are specifically geared towards those who just want to track their fitness and exercise routines. Step forward—the Charge. Classed as fitness trackers rather than smartwatches, the newest design in Charge the collection—the Fitbit Charge 4—has clever functions such as SmartTrack™ automatic exercise recognition and cardio fitness score, which allow you to track workouts and routes.
The built-in GPS will also give you a more detailed analysis of your workout, with real-time pace and distance results without having to refer back to the app. Other features include reminders to move, sleep analyses, and heart rate tracking. For those who want to know how to lose weight, the calories feature estimates how many calories you burn every day which could be a helpful addition to your nutrition tracking
