Best Fitbit 2017 in India: which is right for you?

Fitbit is a name that's synonymous with fitness tracking as it offers options for every kind of user. From expert runners to fitness enthusiasts and even for those who just want to track their activity throughout the day.

On one side, there's the Fitbit Alta HR that was launched in 2017, while both the Fitbit Charge 2 and Fitbit Flex 2 came out at the end of 2016.

Then there's the Fitbit Blaze that is a high-end smartwatch for people who are seriously into exercising and want to keep extensive track of their fitness. While there are also choices like the Zip, Charge and Flex for those who need something simpler.

Here you'll find our ranking of the best Fitbit products you can buy right now in India.

The best Fitbit is the Charge 2, which has a much larger screen compared to the original Fitbit Charge and the Charge HR. 

It's one of the best fitness trackers you can use right now and comes with fitness features such as a heart rate tracker and guided breathing.

There's also Multi-Sport tracking that allows you to keep a track of outdoor runs, walking, weight training and many more exercises.

It also connects with the GPS on your phone to keep track of your runs as well. You won't be able to use this in a pool though, if you want to go swimming with your tracker we'd recommend looking at the Fitbit Flex 2.

The Fitbit Blaze is the dark horse of the Fitbit family. This is one of the stranger devices on the roster as it looks like it's trying to be the first smartwatch from Fitbit, but it's not.

Despite the design, the Fitbit Blaze is still a fitness tracker at heart. The design is a little quirky, but that may be something you want to go for in a fitness tracker.

The display also offers up notifications for your text messages, but not for any other apps you may want to see. 

The Blaze does offer up a variety of new fitness features - such as SmartTrack, which will track your exercise even if you haven't told the wearable what you're going to be doing - allowing you to burn through those calories quickly and easily.

The Fitbit Alta HR takes the slim, stylish Fitbit Alta and jams a heart rate monitor into its slender frame, without bulking it up.

Where the original Alta feels a bit light on features, and like it puts form over function, the Alta HR is an admirable tracker which goes beyond basic step tracking, but one that still looks good.

It's still not the most feature-packed - there's no GPS for a start - but it strikes a good balance and is the sort of thing you'll be happy to wear 24/7 (other than when swimming - this isn't waterproof), which is handy, because it can also track your sleep, and the heart rate monitor helps there too.

With basic message and notification alerts pulled from your smartphone and an almost week long battery life too, it's well worth considering if you don't need the features - or don't want the bulk - of something like the Fitbit Surge.

Do you want a fitness tracker that is easy to use and uncomplicated? The Fitbit Flex 2 may be the best device for you.

It's the only truly waterproof Fitbit, so you'll be able to use this while swimming and track how good your dips in the pool are going.

It's a touch cheaper than the Fitbit Charge 2 as well, so it may be the perfect new Fitbit tracker for you.

The Fitbit Alta has a big focus on the design rather than its fitness features.

The style is customizable with various straps so you can switch them out for whatever you feel like that day - you aren't limited to just one choice, like you are on some Fitbit devices.

In our review, we found it also had a week-long battery life. That's even more than the 5 days Fitbit claims for the Alta.

It's not all great though as the Alta's screen isn't very sensitive and it's not waterproof either. But if you're looking for an all-rounder fitness tracker, the Alta may be a good choice for you - though remember there's a Fitbit Alta HR now too, which you'll find elsewhere in this list.

Fitbit Zip

If you want a cheap and cheerful tracker that will just monitor how far you walk each day, go for the Fitbit Zip. It's a clip you can put onto your clothing and from there you can just look at how far you've walked each day.

Essentially it's a glorified pedometer and won't be able to track your running anywhere near as accurately as you could on devices like the Surge or the Blaze.

But if you're here just to keep a track on how far you've been walking, the Fitbit Zip isn't a bad choice for you.
