List Of 9 Best Fitbit Bands in India
1. Fitbit Charge 3 - The All-You-Need Fitbit Band
The Fitbit Charge 3 is the best fitbit band in India on all counts – it tracks your steps, calories and distance, reminds you to move when you're stagnant, lets you control music, shows you call/text notifications, allows you to make payments and more. In a nutshell, it has everything you may need, except for on-screen workouts and in-built GPS. The device is swim-proof for up to 50 metres.
2. Fitbit Versa - The Smartwatch Fitbit Band
The Fitbit Versa, like the Charge 3, has everything you need and more.The only feature missing is built-in GPS, which shouldn't be a deal-breaker if you have a phone to connect to cellular GPS with. Compared to other Fitbits, Versa looks and operates more like a smartwatch, featuring a larger screen with a more vibrant LCD display and a sleeker aesthetic. Make payments using Fitbit Pay.
3. Fitbit Alta HR - The Snazziest Activity Tracker
Just 15mm in width, the Fitbit Alta HR is easily one of the best looking Fitbit bands. It's a good buy if you want the whole range of activity-tracking features – including heart-rate monitoring with PurePulse technology – without any frills. Lets you track sleep, too. Lightweight and stylish, this model is very popular among women, who make 80% of its user base.
4. Fitbit Ionic - The Best Sports Fitbit Band
The Fitbit Ionic has every feature you can ask for – calorie counting, distance measuring, breathing guidance, notification pop-ups and more – except for cellular GPS (which it replaces with built-in GPS). So if you're heading out sans phone, this is the Fitbit for you. It has a sporty aesthetic, so we're declaring it the best fitbit band for serious sportspeople.
5. Fitbit Flex 2 - The Sleekest Fitbit Band
The Fitbit Flex 2 might be the simplest and sleekest Fitbit band there is. Slim and swim-proof, it's the best fitbit band in India if you're looking for a quiet option that isn't jampacked with features, giving you basic activity-tracking features for when you're exercising. Its sleek aesthetic comes at a slight cost though – the battery life isn't all that great. Fun band colours available.
6. Fitbit Charge 2 - The Saver's Fitbit Band
The Fitbit Charge 2 is thicker and heavier than the Charge 3, has a smaller screen, and is only splash-proof, unlike the Charge 3 which you can take for a swim. Still, its features are almost the same – if you want them while saving, at the cost of compromising on smoothness and versatility of use, get this. It excludes built-in GPS, on-screen workouts and music control.
7. Fitbit Surge - The Built-In GPS Fitbit Band
Comparable with the Fitbit Ionic, the Fitbit Surge is the best fitbit band that boasts a host of competitive features, transitioning seamlessly from work to workouts to track real-time stats like steps, distance, heart rate, active minutes, calories burned and more. If you don't care for guided breathing sessions and on-screen workouts, get this. Some find the design clunky, but if you're saving, who's to complain?
8. Fitbit Blaze - a Rudimentary Fitbit Watch
Fitbit's first-ever smartwatch, "a revolutionary watch designed with fitness in mind", Blaze gives you the benefit of activity tracking with a stylish (albeit relatively bolder) aesthetic, so you can monitor steps/distance/calories, access notifications, control music and more, all while looking ultra-cool. Unlike with the Versa, you can't use this to make payments. If you want this and more, get the Versa instead.
9. Fitbit Zip - the Invisible Fitbit Band
The Fitbit Zip is "the tracker that hides while you seek"– the device clips on to your pockets, belts or bra so you can keep it hidden, while enjoying the benefit of basic activity tracking. Monitor calories burnt, steps taken and distance covered on a large tap display. Then sync your stats wirelessly to your phone or computer. Its battery lasts for up to 6 months without recharging.
