When it comes to sporting a wearable, it is wise to keep its purpose in mind. If you need something that would serve as a miniature smartphone on the go, smartwatches are your best bet whereas those looking for a virtual fitness buddy would be well equipped with a fitness tracker.
While the holidays are a time wherein good food is served more often than not, those who want to stay in tip-top shape can take advantage of Amazon’s Fitbit sale on the Charge 3 and Versa Lite this Cyber Week. These fitness-centric wearables would also be appreciated by anyone who wants to adopt a more active and healthier lifestyle.
Fitbit has always been lauded for being able to combine function and style. The Charge 3 proves just that as it packs all the features you would want from a fitness tracker in a slim lightweight design and 4-out-of-5 star rating in our review to boot. And with interchangeable bands, you can sport it in the gym and in the boardroom. At a glance, it may not look far off from its predecessor, the Charge 2. It does, however, step up with a touchscreen that makes navigation quicker and more fluid.
With a durable aerospace-grade case protected under Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and with water resistance to depths within 50 meters. Needless to say, it is more than capable to let you keep tabs on steps taken, calories burnt, floors climbed, distance, and beats per minute through its heart rate monitor. You’ll even be able to measure your blood oxygen and analyze your sleeping pattern with the integrated SPO2 sensor.
Once paired, smart notifications for calls, texts, app alerts, and music playback are instantly enabled. While it is compatible with iOS devices, only Android devices would be able to send quick replies or replicate much of what happens on their smartphones. You’ll hardly find any reason to take it off your wrist with a battery that can last up to seven days on a single charge.
The Versa Lite slightly more affordable and lighter compared to the original Versa. Like the Charge 3, you’re just as able to switch out its band depending on your mood or outfit. Navigation would not be confusing as most actions can be done through one button on the right side of its 1.3-inch LCD display.
The 24/7 heart rate monitor and SPO2 sensors are kept in place to boost its activity and sleep tracking. Metrics for more than 15 exercise modes are also available but this time you can count on the Versa Lite to automatically detect and record your chosen workout with SmartTrack. And to help ladies understand their body more during that time of the month, the Fitbit app would also have a log for menstrual cycles and symptoms. And though it is swim-proof with water resistance to 5ATM, it would not be able to determine the number of laps you swam without the gyroscope.
Interaction between the Versa Lite and your smartphone is seamless with Bluetooth. You’ll be able to receive texts, calls, app alerts, as much as you can access your favorite apps for fitness, sports, finance, and social apps among others.
