The best Fitbit deals? We got 'em. Fitbit makes some of the world's best fitness trackers, and its best-selling ones, too. It has been doing so since before activity and fitness tracking was even a thing.

You can get much cheaper trackers, but Fitbit has a deserved reputation for the quality of what it sells, in terms of build and app support. As such its products are priced quite high, but you can get deals on them via Fitbit's own website and elsewhere. 

We have a more in-depth guide to all the Fitbit family if you want to do a spot of Fitbit research. If you're just here to shop, all today's best Fitbit deals are below courtesy of our magical pricing widgets (and the occasional bit of human intervention).

Alternatively, the patient among your might want to wait until Black Friday, where Fitbit will be reducing the price of some of its most popular models even further.

Black Friday Fitbit deals: what we expect to see

The Fitbit Versa 2 is the latest – and already the most popular – model in the Fitbit range, with Amazon Alexa built-in and a whole host of new sleep tracking and fitness-related features. As a result, the original Versa is now an absolute shoe-in for some major price reductions during the Black Friday festival of consumerism. 

Peripherals such as smart scales and Bluetooth headphones also likely to get some tasty savings, not like the new Fitbit Aria Air is all that expensive as it is. It would be no surprise, though, to see the Charge 3 and Inspire HR discounted. 

Check out our Best Black Friday deals hub now. We will keep it nice n' fresh, and constantly updated, throughout the cut-price bonanza period. Promise.

The best Fitbit deals by device

Fitbit Versa: best Fitbit for price

Best Fitbit deals

While the Versa 2 may be the best Fitbit you can buy – for most people's purposes, anyway – the original Versa is the one for deals hunters. So long as your wrists are fairly slender it's an attractive enough watch, even though the Versa 2 is noticeably more chic. Again, there's no GPS built in but it can use your phone's to track runs, hikes and rides. That aside, you get the full English breakfast of Fitbit functionality, with cardio tracking, apps, notifications, swim tracking, Fitbit Pay and 5 days of battery life.

Fitbit Versa 2: best Fitbit overall

Best Fitbit deals

Because it's so new, you'll have to pay anything up to £60/$60 more for the Versa 2 than you will for the Versa. Is it worth the extra? Arguably not. The Versa 2 is slightly more attractive and comes with Alexa built in – an odd but enjoyable version of Alexa, as it responds to your spoken instructions and requests in text form only, rather than yapping away on your wrist. However other than that, it's  functionally identical.

Fitbit Versa Lite, Versa Special Edition and Versa 2 Special Edition

Also well worth considering is the T3 Award winning Versa Lite. This loses Fitbit Pay and the Versa's on-wrist video coach – not a great loss – and won't track swims, but it's usually cheaper.

The Versa Special Edition is the same as Versa, but in a choice of 2 more premium finishes. It's usually more expensive although obviously, look out for them there deals.

The Versa 2 Special Edition is the same as the Versa 2 but made of more premium materials. It also comes with a 3-month trial of Fitbit's interesting but flawed Premium service.

Fitbit Charge 3: Best Fitbit band

Best Fitbit deals

This is more like what most people think of when you say 'Fitbit': a band with a small screen. Charge 3, like Versa, offers heart-rate monitoring, tracking of runs and cycles (via your phone's GPS, and notifications, although it dials down the smartwatch functionality.

Fitbit Ionic: best Fitbit running watch

Best Fitbit deals

The Ionic is much like the Versa, but bigger and with its own GPS built in. As such it's the best Fitbit for more serious outdoor exercisers. We're not overly enthused about  its looks, but it's the most fully-featured and 'pro' of Fitbit's extensive range.

Fitbit Inspire HR: best Fitbit for women

Perhaps it would be an over-simplification to say this is the Charge 3, but aimed more squarely at women. But it wouldn't be much of an over-simplification.

Fitbit Ace 2: best Fitbit for kids

This is a Fitbit Inspire (see below) in a child-proof case and can be managed by you, the parent, via additional settings in the Fitbit app. A very popular device, it's a great way to get you kids moving. No GPS means it's a bit limited as a fitness device but also that nobody can track your child's whereabouts, which on balance seems like A Good Thing.

Fitbit Inspire

It would however be no over-simplification to say that this is the exact same thing as Inspire HR, except with no cardio tracking or access to GPS.

Fitbit Alta HR

Best Fitbit deals

This is essentially an older version of the Inspire HR. It's not waterproof but it's otherwise very similar. Being effectively discontinued, you may well find it going cheap. Don't buy it if it's not. 

Fitbit Charge 2

Best Fitbit deals

The Charge 2 is to the Charge 3 as the Alta HR is to the Inspire HR. Which is to say it's quite similar but older and less good overall. If the price is right (ie: on the low side) it is still good enough to consider, though.

Fitbit Alta

Best Fitbit deals

Fitbit Alta is exactly what you'd expect: the Alta HR, shorn of heart-rate tracking.

Fitbit Blaze

Best Fitbit deals

Fitbit's first stab at a fitness smartwatch is still available in various places and isn't bad, although obviously, we'd recommend the newer Ionic or Versa over this.

Fitbit Flex 2

Best Fitbit deals

As basic as it gets, this lets you access Fitbit's app and social community, and counts your steps. That's all some people need…

Fitbit Surge

Best Fitbit deals

The Surge was worn by Barack Obama when he was running (for office). Like Mr Obama, the Surge's best years are now behind it, although a hardcore following still swears it's the best thing ever.
