Easy to use. Comfortable. Accurate. Great battery life. For those searching for their first fitness tracker, or those looking to downgrade to a simpler model, these words will bring music to your ears. In our Fitbit Inspire 2 review, these are just some of the benefits we highlighted.
With the Fitbit Inspire 2, you can track your steps, the distance you've moved, calories burned, and see your menstrual cycle. At 10 days, the battery life is impressive. Notifications from your smartphone will pop up on your wrist, and a year of Fitbit Premium is included with every purchase.
If this model isn't for you, check out our guide to the best Fitbits to see if there are other models that better suit your needs. We'll continue tracking and posting deals on other Fitbit models (and best fitness trackers in general) as and when they become available.
