1. Fitbit Sense: Best Fitbit for Men

Fitbit Sense is one of the best wellness smartwatches I would recommend to men who want to stay on top of their well-being.

The smartwatch comes with a fairly large vibrant display. Apart from time, the display will show your heart rate, steps you’ve taken, the number of calories burned, distance moved, and more.

Fitbit Sense 2 will also monitor your stress levels and cardiac functionality with the help of a built-in EDA sensor and ECG sensor respectively.

On this Fitbit smartwatch, you will get a skin temperature sensor that will track body temperature and this can tell you whether are having a feature.

With the Fitbit Sense, you never go short; the watch has a battery life of up to 6 days with no GPS.


  • Vibrant display.
  • Can track swimming activities.
  • Has an onboard GPS.
  • Support contactless payments (Fitbit Pay).


  • The battery drains fast with the GPS on.

2. Fitbit Luxe: Best Fitbit for Women

Fitbit Luxe is the activity tracker I would recommend to women who are more concerned with beauty or appreciate it.

This fitness tracker features a slim body that promises to blend with almost any outfit you wear.

With the Fitbit Luxe women can keep track of their sleep, heart rate, steps, calories burned, and others. The watch also does a commendable job tracking your activities and menstrual cycle.

Unfortunately, there are two important sensors that miss on Fitbit Luxe and they are GPS and ECG sensors. That means the tracker is not fit for tracking location and cardiac functionality.

Speaking of battery life, the Fitbit Luxe tracker can last for 5 days after a complete charge.


  • It features a luxurious look.
  • It is water-resistant.
  • Has a good battery life.
  • Can help monitor the menstrual cycle.


  • It does have an onboard GPS.
  • It lacks an ECG sensor.

3. Fitbit Charge 5: Best Fitbit for Seniors

If you are a senior citizen looking for Fitbits that can accurately monitor your heart rate 24/7 I would suggest you look at the Fitbit Charge 5.

With its comfortable bands, you can wear it all day and night to monitor your heart rate.

Apart from heart rate, Fitbit Charge 5 also help seniors keep track of their wellness trends, sleep, steps, calories burned, real-time pace, and distance. In addition, the watch will track blood oxygen levels with the built-in SpO2 sensor and cardiac functionality with the help of the onboard ECG sensor. However, you don’t get SpO2 readings on the sport on Fitbit Charge 5 and that makes it less helpful for those running or cycling.

Try Fitbit Charge 5 if you like to jog, run, or cycle because with it you will track your location and hence not get lost thanks to the built-in GPS.

As a senior, you don’t need to carry your wallet or cards because you can use Fitbit Charge 5 to transact cashlessly thanks to the onboard NFC chip.

Fitbit Charge 5 also comes with excellent battery life. On a single charge, the fitness tracker can last for up to 6 days (GPS off).


  • Feature a built-in NFC chip for cashless transactions.
  • It features an onboard GPS for location tracking.
  • Comes with 6 months of free Fitbit premium membership.


  • Doesn’t offer on-the-spot blood oxygen level readings (SpO2).

4. Fitbit Ace 3: Best Fitbit for Kids

If you are a parent interested in tracking your son’s or daughter’s health and fitness I would suggest you get the Ace 3 because it is among the best Fitbits you can buy for a kid.

This child’s watch has a touchscreen display and even though it isn’t loaded with features it can track your child’s sleep, steps, and active zone minutes.

Fitbit Ace 3 sends kids celebration messages and virtual badges for achieving daily and big milestones.

I like Fitbit Ace because you can set an alarm for your kids so that he or doesn’t wake up late for school. Unfortunately, you can only set an alarm on Fitbit Ace from the Fitbit app.

Here is a post that shows you how to set alarms on various Fitbit Watch models including Fitbit Ace.


  • Has good battery life.
  • Can track sleep


  • Has very limited features.

5. Fitbit Versa: Best Fitbit for Tracking Sleep

Sleep that is enough is so important, especially after a long day at work. If you don’t get enough sleep you’ll be less productive the next day.

Fitbit offers various watches and trackers to help track your sleep. The latest Versa 4 is one of the best Fitbits for tracking sleep because it does so accurately. With the smartwatch, you will track your sleep stages (light, deep, and REM sleep) and know how much time you spent in each sleep stage.

In addition, with Fitbit Versa, you will get tips to help you improve your sleeping habit for better sleep results and you are more than ready to start your day.

Fitbit Versa’s battery can store or keep a charge for long (up to 6 days) when the GPS is off. On the other hand it only last hours when the GPS and power-hungry sensors are in use.


  • Keeps track of your sleep stages.
  • It is water-resistant and tracks swimming workouts.
  • Has good battery life.


  • Drains fast when the GPS is on.

6. Fitbit Inspire: Best Waterproof Fitbit

People ask if Fitbits are waterproof devices. Well, almost all Fitbit Watch models are not waterproof instead they are water resistant and the resistance fades with time.

Almost all Fitbit smartwatches and activity trackers are water-resistant. One of the best waterproof Fitbits is Inspire 3.

Fitbit Inspire 3 has a water resistance rating of 5ATM, which means it can put up with immersion that goes as deep as 50 meters below the surface of the water.

Since Fitbit can withstand immersions of up to 50 meters below water it can be worn in the shower, rain, swimming pool, or at the sink.


  • Can be worn in the pool and shower.
  • Withstands immersions of up to 50 meters underwater.
  • Can monitor swimming.
  • Has a battery life of up to 10 days.


  • Doesn’t have a built-in GPS sensor.
