Health & Fitness Best Fitbit fitness tracker 2020: Which Fitbit is right for you?

Fitbit deals are returning to fantastic sales prices this week, with savings on the Versa, Charge, and Inspire lines.Originally launched at a price tag closer to £100, you can now pick up the Fitbit Inspire HR for just £69.99 at Currys, but if you're after Fitbit pay and a larger display you can also pick up the Charge 3 for £79.99. That's £10 less than the sales price we spotted last month, making this a particularly exciting Fitbit deal.
The new Fitbit Sense is here in the flesh. After years of highly competent, highly samey fitness watches this is, at last, one to get truly excited about. Although not too excited, as that might trigger this new Fitbit’s stress and dangerously heightened heartbeat sensors.

•: what’s the difference between Fitbit’s fresh smartwatches?
Admittedly, if you were stressed, you would probably know about it without having to check it on your watch but as well as checking stress levels, the Fitbit Sense can also offer ways to reduce stress through the Fitbit App and the Fitbit Premium subscription, of which you'll get a free six-month trial, included in the price.
Fitbit’s new Stress Management Score calculates how your body is responding to stress based on your heart rate, sleep, and activity level data. Ranging from 1-100, with a higher score indicating your body is showing fewer physical signs of stress, the score is coupled with recommendations to better manage stress, like breathing exercises and other mindfulness tools.
Fitbit Premium members will get a detailed breakdown on how the score is calculated, which consists of over 10 biometric inputs, including exertion balance (impact of activity), responsiveness (heart rate, heart rate variability and electrodermal activity from the EDA Scan app), and sleep patterns (sleep quality).
The Fitbit Sense is is About So Much More Than Just Tracking Your Fitness
Hello, holistic health tracking The Fitbit Sense generated some series buzz from the moment its high-tech features were announced – so much so that it's been touted as the most advanced tracker ever released.

In the Fitbit Premium-powered Fitbit App, you track key trends in your health and wellbeing, like heart rate variability (HRV), breathing rate, and SpO2 with the new Health Metrics dashboard.
The Sense is also the first Fitbit device with an ECG app to assess your heart rhythm for signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib), a condition that affects more than 33.5 million people globally , according to Fitbit. Simply hold your fingers on the corners of the stainless steel ring around the watch while being still for 30 seconds to receive a reading that can be downloaded to share with your doctor.
Fitbit’s new PurePulse 2.0 technology, with an all-new 'multi-path' heart rate sensor and updated algorithm, delivers the Fitbit's 'most advanced' heart rate technology yet. As well as being able to monitor your heart rate more precisely – it is still not a medical grade sensor, mind – the Fitbit Sense can detect and send a notification if your heart rate is outside of your thresholds.

Fitbit Sense battles Apple with lower price, ECG, stress sensing and management and 6+ days battery lifeAnd as of the 14 September 2020, Fitbit has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA (in the US), as well as the CE marking in the European Union, for its electrocardiogram (ECG) app to assess heart rhythm for atrial fibrillation (AFib), meaning it's not just Fitbit saying the Sense can do all these accurately.
A range of smart features include a built-in speaker and microphone to take calls and reply to texts with voice commands, choice of Amazon Alexa or Google voice assistants –– contactless payments, thousands of apps and clock faces through the Fitbit App and more.
The battery life is pretty long, especially considering all the features on board: the new Fitbit Sense can last for up to six days in between charges. Naturally, if you keep on checking your ECG and stress levels, the battery will probably die in no time but considering average use, it is pretty good nevertheless for a smartwatch.

The larger AMOLED display features an integrated ambient light sensor to automatically dim the screen for easier viewing, along with an optional always-on display mode.
