One of the best Fitbits on the market is currently on sale at Amazon, so stop what you’re doing and pay attention. For a limited time only, the Fitbit Charge 5 is reduced by 20%, taking the total price down to under $120. 

After we tested it ourselves, we added it to our best fitness tracker and best budget fitness tracker lists because of everything it has to offer. The battery lasts up to seven days. It has an extremely easy-to-use interface, and all you have to do is swipe left and right to access its various functions. 

The Fitbit Charge 5 has a slim design, giving it the feeling of being more of a bracelet than a watch. There’s an in-built GPS, an ECG app, an electrodermal activity (EDA) tracker, a heart rate monitor, and more. A six-month subscription to Fitbit Premium is also included.

Buy it if: You want a fitness tracker that has an easy-to-use interface. There are no physical buttons on the watch, and all you need to do is swipe left and right to access the various functions. There’s also an in-built GPS, an ECG app, and an electrodermal activity (EDA) tracker. The display is bright, even in direct sunlight.

Don't buy it if: Unfortunately, there’s no way to control audio playback through the Fitbit Charge 5, which means you can’t skip tracks or pause a playlist. We found this disappointing during testing. Additionally, because of the slim design, it can sometimes be difficult to read notification text.
