Ever since the two devices have been up for sale, there has been a debate over whether Apple Watch or Fitbit is better than the other. While they both have their pros, I believe that Apple Watch is superior over its adversary.

The Apple Watch is better because it can be used for basically anything. While Fitbit can only track so much, Apple Watch can track everything Fitbit can and then some. It can track daily water intake, total steps, and even offers Breath, which is used to help calm those dealing with stress and anxiety. It notifies the user when their heart rate begins reaching unusual levels, and notifies the user whenever they get a text, so they do not need to be on their phone to stay in touch with people throughout the day. While Fitbit tracks steps and heart rate just as the Watch does, users need their phones in order to stay updated on their stats throughout the day. With Apple Watch though, users can track their physical stats without having to pull out their phones. It allows the user to even answer calls without having their phone, if they purchased the watch with cellular pairing. Sure, Fitbit does some of these things, but does Fitbit do all of these things?

A fitbit is fine if those who use it are primarily concerned with fitness. For everyday needs alongside that though, Apple Watch is overall a much better investment. Apple Watch is basically like a little phone that can be carried around wherever, and while some believe that this is unnecessary, I believe that they can come in very handy for people with certain busy and social lifestyles. For those who base their whole lives around fitness and care very little about staying connected, Fitbit may be their best bet. As a whole though, Apple Watch is just simply better.
