When looking for an activity tracker and/or smartwatch, there is usually only one question that comes to mind: should I get an Apple Watch or Fitbit? Well, the answer is Fitbit, and there are numerous reasons as to why. For starters, the Fitbit was created with a focus of fitness. One of the company’s mottos is, “Fitness first, smart second.” Fitbit also has various types of watches to fit different lifestyles. For instance, the Alta, Flex, and Charge HR are used just for tracking steps, with the exception of the charge hr and some new versions of the Alta the activity tracker allows people to monitor heart rate, and track calorie burn in workouts too. For more intense tracking, the Surge, Charge 2 and 3, Ionic, and Versa allow for GPS tracking, heart rate sensing, text messaging, customizable workouts and various fitness apps. The variety of watches create many choices to meet each seller’s needs, unlike the Apple Watch. The Fitbit watches also have long lasting battery lives that last for at least 4-5 days. Sleep and sleep levels can easily be tracked during the night.

Another amenity to the Fitbit is the fact they have a Fitbit Coach broadcasted on the watch, that coaches anybody through a workout. This makes working out less difficult, because the watch tells the person what to do. Along with the Fitbit Coach, the Fitbit app is phenomenal. The app allows friends compete with one another, track food, water, calories burned, stairs climbed, steps, and workouts. For women, the app has a Women’s health tracker, which allows for women to log personal information for the app to track. Fitbit also give the option to sync weight data from the Fitbit Aria scales. This accommodates two types of information and puts it into one app, which comes in handy.

In my opinion, the Fitbit is 100% better than the Apple Watch. The watch offers many accommodations for any type of person. Junior Emily Rhea also loves the watches, “Fitbit allows for me to track how I eat, drink, sleep, workout, walk, and climb. For a fitness watch, it is definitely the best.” With this being said, the Fitbit is more versatile and easier to use for all types of people.
