Fitbit Cyber Monday & Black Friday Deals (2017)

Fitbits are a great way to monitor your activity levels and now have lots of useful extra features like sleep tracking, text and call alerts and GPS. There’s several different models out there which can make it confusing when choosing which one to buy. Here’s the best deals on all the different Fitbits and some general buying advice if you’re not sure which one to get.

Update October 2017: We’ve published our Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2017 deal predictions for each Fitbit model.

Let’s start with the sport Fitbits – the workout watches. I’ll start with the older one first, the Fitbit Surge. I called this one the mother of Fitbits when it came out not only because it looks like a giant Fitbit but because it has built in GPS and tracks a bunch of different sports in addition to everyday activity tracking. It’s also the most expensive Fitbit available. But the Surge was Fitbit being like ‘Hey Garmin, we’re here!’ and also it’s still the only Fitbit with built in GPS if you’re into that sort of thing.

  • Get continuous, automatic, wrist-based heart rate and┬ásimplified heart rate zones
  • Track workouts & view workout summaries; plus all┬áday activities including steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed and active minutes

Then there’s the Fitbit Blaze. Ohh the Blaze. Fitbit rolled out this connected, modular watch earlier this year and resisted comparisons to a smartwatch even though it looks like a smartwatch and kind of acts like a smartwatch. Instead, it’s supposed to be a smart fitness tracker but again it has alot of the same technology inside it as some of the other Fitbits – including optical heart rate sensors and the auto exercise tracking. But it doesn’t have built in GPS like the Surge. It’s an odd kind of in between activity tracker and in my opinion not super attractive.

  • Enable connected GPS to map your routes and see run stats like pace and duration on display (when your phone is nearby)

And brand new for 2017 we’ve got the Fitbit Ionic. This is the most exciting Fitbit that we’ve seen for a while and one that I’ve been patiently waiting for since Fitbit started experimenting with smartwatches. It’s got all the best features from the Blaze and Surge, plus a personal assistant for encouraging and motivational messages (which are no way near as cheesy or annoying as I feared they might be). You can listen to and store music on the Ionic, monitor your heart rate, swim with it and the battery lasts for days and days.

If you want to track your fitness and sleep but don’t want to be weighed down with a bulky watch on your arm, Fitbit’s range of wrist based activity trackers are what you need.

Here’s where Fitbit designed a couple of their activity trackers to look more like bracelets and less like activity trackers that are going to ensure you’ll never have a date again. The first and less expensive one is the new Fitbit Flex 2 which tracks steps, calories burned and sleep activity as well as active minutes and how long you’ve been sitting for. It’s biggest upside is that its Fitbits first swimproof activity tracker. The biggest downside – it doesn’t have a display so you either have to read the tea leaves and tiny little LED lights on the band or you have to open up the Fitbit mobile app to see your data. That’s why I like the new Fitbit Alta more, even though it’s more expensive. This one tracks all the same stuff that the Flex 2 does but it has a tap-sensitive display that lets you actually see all of your step data. Plus it’s not as cheap looking as the Flex 2. Although, the Alta isn’t swimproof. Ohh and neither of these have optical heart rate sensors.

Which brings us to the Fitbit Charge. The Charge is in a category all on its own. Not just because it’s the best selling Fitbit but because it really has hit the sweet spot for a lot of people. It’s aimed at people who are a little bit more active – maybe they work out sometimes and they want something that’s going to record that in addition to tracking stuff like steps and sleep. Last years Fitbit Charge HR did all of the basic activity tracking you could want it to do but also added optical heart rate sensors and automatically recognised when you started a workout. Now there’s the brand new Fitbit Charge 2 which replaces the Charge HR. Honestly Fitbit have changed the look of its bestseller without really changing the tech inside of it too much. We will be expecting big Black Friday Fitbit deals. It has a bigger display and multiple sport modes and it does pull GPS data from your smartphone during workouts but otherwise it’s not a huge step up from last years Charge HR.

And finally, we’ve got the entry level range of Fitbits. First there’s the Fitbit Zip and then there’s theFitbit One. They both track your steps, your calories burned and your sleep and they both have a display. The biggest difference between them is going to be battery life – the Zip has a 6 month battery life whilst the One has a 2 week battery life. Also the One will track your stairs climbed whilst the Zip won’t.
