Fitbits are as popular as ever and are a must-have for many people looking to track their fitness and keep up with the latest trends. And the best Fitbits for women double as high-fashion jewellery while being the perfect gym partner. Whether you’re a dedicated athlete or a fashionista, check out the six models below to find the right Fitbit for you.
1. Fitbit Charge 3
The best fitness tracker by Fitbit
The third generation of the Charge range is one of the best fitness trackers out there for either sex. Features include guided breathing, heart rate tracking, swim tracking, and smart notifications so you can stay in touch even on the go.
The Fitbit Charge 3 Special Edition comes with Fitbit Pay, and the smartwatch connects with your phone’s GPS to track your runs or even romantic walks via a dedicated step tracker.
Other useful features include calories burned and a menstrual cycle tracker. Perhaps it’s not the best option for serious runners, but for anyone else, the Charge 3 is no doubt an outstanding fitness tracker.
- Bigger screen than the Charge 2 version
- Sleek, fashionable style
- Variety of band options
- Fitbit Pay on the Special Edition Charge 3
- No integrated GPS
2. Fitbit Inspire HR
The right Fitbit for the fitness geek
The Inspire HR is a great choice for the fitness geek who wants to have lots of stats and notifications on her wrist. Reasonably priced and incredibly stylish, Fitbit Inspire HR exudes personality and packs all features you would expect from the latest generation wearable.
It monitors heart rate and sleep, has several exercise modes, real-time pace and distance through your phone’s GPS and a waterproof design. It doesn’t have any real swim-tracking skills, but you can still wear it in the pool, shower, or even in the hot tub.
Like the Charge 3, it includes guided breathing sessions that’ll help you calm down after you’ve spent your monthly wage on that pair of Jimmy Choos, but it doesn’t have the acclaimed Fitbit Pay. Basically, if you don’t mind taking the phone with you on runs and don’t need to track the activity in the pool, this could be a great option at an excellent price point.
- Reminders to move and automatic exercise recognition
- Up to 5 days of battery life
- Goal-based exercise modes
- Variety of bands and accessories
- No swim tracking features
- No Fitbit Pay
3. Fitbit Versa 2 Special Edition
Ideal if you want to get Alexa and more on your wrist
The Versa 2 is arguably the most versatile device Fitbit offers, and one of the most stylish smartwatches too. From email, text, and other push notifications on your wrist to 24/7 sleep monitoring and outstanding battery life, it has it all.
All if you don’t really care about a built-in GPS, that is – but like other Fitbits, it syncs with your phone to accurately track your runs and walks.
In the end, who cares about a built-in GPS when you can choose from an array of fashionable bands and inspiring colours. The Amazon Alexa functionality and access to a variety of third-party apps also up this smartwatch’s game and adds appeal.
Other highlights include six-day battery life, feminine health features, and the acclaimed Fitbit Pay, plus a convenient always-on display mode.
- Improved, lighter design
- Swim tracking features
- Integration with Spotify and Deezer playlists
- Customisable clock faces
- High-resolution touchscreen
- No GPS
- You can’t use Spotify in offline mode
4. Fitbit Alta HR
Slim, stylish and incredibly accurate heart rate monitoring
The Fitbit Alta HR takes heart rate monitoring to the next level with sleek lines and a slim profile that make it look like a fancy bracelet rather than a fitness tracker. Nevertheless, Fitbit jammed a host of features – like sleep and heart rate monitoring, reminders to move, smartphone notifications, and more – into this slender design.
It’s not the most feature-packed smartwatch out there – it has no GPS and isn’t waterproof – but it does have a long six-day battery life and less of the bulk seen on other models.
- Stylish, slim design
- Wide variety of accessory bands
- Accurate heart rate monitoring
- A rather unresponsive touchscreen
- Difficult to read in bright light
5. Fitbit Flex 2
Excellent fitness tracker for ladies on a budget
The cheapest of the Fitbits tested here, and with a super-subtle design, the Flex 2 is the best Fitbit for those on a budget wanting an uncomplicated fitness tracker.
It comes in a variety of colours, is waterproof, and has all tracking features you’d expect packed in a super-slim and lightweight design.
There are no screen or push notifications to distract you except for calls and text alerts. Fully customisable to suit your fitness goals, it also comes in various styles, including silicone wristband, fashionable bracelet, or a necklace – a feature you’re unlikely to find elsewhere.
- Fashionable wearable styles
- Wireless synchronisation with Android, iOS, and Windows devices
- Comfortable and lightweight
- Not-so-great battery life for a screenless device
- No heart rate monitoring
6. Fitbit Ionic
Big and masculine but packed with outstanding features
The Fitbit Ionic is for you if you’re looking for an outstanding fitness tracker and aren’t so bothered about the looks. Bigger than all other Fitbits on this list, it has a more masculine appearance – but it can still look awesome on a female wrist.
Built-in GPS means you can leave your phone at home and still get accurate run or walk tracking. You’ll also love the Fitbit Coach workouts developed to improve your athletic performance.
It pairs with Bluetooth headphones for an all-round fitness experience, while Fitbit Pay comes as a bonus for the after-gym shopping session. Much cheaper than peers such as the Apple Watch 4 or Samsung Galaxy Watch, but with many of their features, this is undoubtedly a great choice.
- Wide variety of fitness options
- Large and bright display
- Personal coaching
- Music storage options
- A rather slow interface
