If you’re looking for a smartwatch that places as much emphasis on your mental health as it does on your physical health, stop your search right now. That’s because the Fitbit Sense is currently on sale at Amazon for a 31% discount for a limited time only.
With the Fitbit Sense, you get an EDA scan. This uses the sweatiness of your hand to tell you how your body is reacting to current stresses. The display is bright and we found the watch to be extremely comfortable, even when we wore it for long periods of time during testing.
At six days, the battery life is solid, and a six-month trial of Fitbit Premium is included with every purchase. There’s a heart rate tracker, sleep tracker, and even an in-built GPS, so you’re able to track your runs or bike rides.
Sound like a deal you don’t want to miss? Then grab one of the best fitness trackers available while it’s still on offer.

Price history: The lowest price we’ve seen on Amazon in the last 30 days. You can get the white color at Walmart for $149.90, but the graphite and gray colors are more expensive. All three colors are around the same price at Amazon, whereas the price at Best Buy hasn’t been discounted.
Reviews consensus: While we’d have loved to have stored a playlist or two on it, the Fitbit Sense is a great smartwatch. Its battery is long-lasting, it’s full of great features, and makes a real effort to help provide users with the data needed to improve their mental health – be that due to stresses at work or at home.
Buy it if: You’re searching for a fitness tracker that places as much focus on your mental well-being as your physical health. There’s an EDA scan that uses the sweatiness of your hand to tell you how your body is reacting to current stresses. During testing, we appreciated the bright screen, and felt that it was comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time.
Don't buy it if: There’s no offline music playback from services other than Deezer and Pandora. For workouts, you’ll need to take your phone with you if you want to listen to music or to podcasts. Even with this discounted price, it’s still pricier than some of our other best Fitbits, so you may want to consider whether the additional features are worth it.
