There was a time not too long ago when Fitbit was essentially the only wearable in town, the most popular way to brag about step counts and the rest. While its status has waned in the face of ever-growing competition, Fitbit is still making easy-to-use fitness trackers and watches.
Now under the ownership of Google, Fitbit is continuing to refresh its trackers and smartwatches. So if you’ve not yet been lured in by an Apple Watch or can’t afford to spend big, you still have good Fitbit options for tracking fitness, sleep, and other health metrics, with a nice variety of designs and features.
Updated December 2023: We added the Fitbit Charge 6 in place of the Charge 5.
