The Apple Watch Series 9 is by far the most popular smartwatch out there today. And there are some great Apple Watch deals that you can check out to save plenty of money. I use the Apple Watch Series 8 myself, and I paid much more than you will if you get one today. But what about all the people who want to spend even less money, or who don’t have an iPhone? Fitbit is one of the best alternatives out there, but people sometimes get confused by how many different models there are. Thankfully, I’ve tested them all, so I can tell you which Fitbits give you the best bang for your buck.

First, Fitbit makes two different smartwatches that I highly recommend — and they both happen to have been discounted at the time of this writing. You can get the upgraded Fitbit Sense 2 smartwatch on sale for just $199.95 instead of $300, which is $100 off. On top of that, the Fitbit Versa 4 smartwatch is down to $122, which is a steal. There are also two more models I recommend for people who want something more compact than a traditional smartwatch, and I’ll cover them both down below.

Apple might sell more smartwatches than any other brand, but it’s certainly not the only game in town. Plus, if you use an Android smartphone, then the Apple Watch obviously isn’t an option.

Fitbit smartwatches are the go-to models for people who don’t want an Apple Watch. That’s especially true with the company’s two latest models.

First, we have the Fitbit Versa 4 smartwatch. This sleek watch offers 24/7 heart rate monitoring as well as sleep tracking. It also has Fitbit’s beloved activity tracking features, with more than 40 different exercise modes.

If you want a Fitbit smartwatch with many of the same premium features like blood oxygen monitoring and a built-in ECG app, definitely check out the Fitbit Sense 2 smartwatch. This top-of-the-line model retails for $300, but it’s on sale for $199.95. That’s about $200 less than the entry price of the Apple Watch Series 9.

Or, if you want to spend a bit less money but still have all the most essential features from the Sense 2, the mid-range Fitbit Versa 4 is on sale for around $122 right now, down from $200.

The beauty of Fitbit is that there are plenty of choices out there. And if you prioritize health and sleep tracking over smartwatch features, you can just get an activity tracking band instead of a pricier smartwatch.

My favorite option is definitely the Fitbit Charge 6, which is currently on sale for $139.95. This model has tons of features that you would get on a regular smartwatch, but it’s a more compact form factor. The screen is more narrow and the overall footprint is slimmer, but you still get health tracking, sleep tracking, notifications from your phone, and so on.

Finally, if you want a new Fitbit for your child, the Fitbit Ace 3 for kids is down to $68.49. This is a stripped-down Fitbit that’s great for young users. It still has essential features like health tracking and sleep tracking, plus you get 8 days of battery life out of this model.

  4. Fitbit Ace for kids
