If you’re searching for a fun-to-use health tracking watch, then look no further.
Fitbit’s products have regularly featured in our best fitness trackers list, and for good reason. The design of the Fitbit Sense 2 is user friendly and sleek, and you get advanced features not seen with other smart watches. There’s also a heart rate tracker, a sleep tracker, and GPS is also included.
You will need Fitbit Premium to benefit from everything that Fitbit offers. If you have another one of the best fitbits, the transition to the Fitbit Sense 2 should be smooth.

Price history: The lowest price we’ve seen in 30 days. Amazon and Best Buy are offering similar prices, both with $70 off. Walmart’s price is slightly lower if you go for the Grey Graphite color.
Reviews consensus: The Fitbit’ Sense 2 gains a physical button that removes the touch annoyance of the first Sense watch, and the Google Maps support is handy for navigating around streets you don't know too well. It's a good casual health and fitness tracker that demands less upkeep than an Apple Watch, though, and for many that will be enough.
Buy it if: The kind of person who should consider Fitbit’s Sense 2 is someone looking for long battery life and an easy-to-use smartwatch. There are some advanced features that you don’t usually see on fitness trackers too, for example, an electrocardiogram (ECG) and an electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor.
Don't buy it if: If you’re looking for a smartwatch that plays music or is able to support third-party apps, then this one probably isn’t for you. We found that the heart rate readings were consistently poor for the first five minutes of recording, so if you do short exercise sessions, the results may not be reliable.
