Fitbit has been around for years, ranked # 1 in the activity tracker class and smugly watching its competitors hope to attract the same attention.

For many, the fitness tracker is simply called "Fitbit" - such is the influence of this company, and now it has been bought by Google to increase its power.

We've taken apart each of Fitbit's trackers by looking at how much each one costs, what features it offers, and why you might want to consider buying each one. This list will help you figure out which Fitbit is best for you and your lifestyle.

The Fitbit Inspire is the cheapest fitness tracker in the Fitbit range, replacing the Zip, Flex and Alta. It offers all-day sleep and activity tracking, smartphone notifications, watch faces, and interchangeable straps. It features a touchscreen display, is swim-proof and offers automatic exercise recognition.

The Fitbit Inspire HR has a very similar design to the standard Inspire, but adds heart rate monitoring, more advanced sleep data, VO2 Max, goal-based exercise modes, and connected GPS. The rest of the features are the same as the Inspire, but due to the additional features it is slightly more expensive.

The Fitbit Inspire 2 has a slightly more refined design compared to the Inspire and Inspire HR, offers many of the same features, but doubles the battery life, and adds Active Zone Minutes and Quick Replies for Android users.

The Fitbit Luxe is a fashion-focused tracker that offers a premium design and color touchscreen, and all the same features as the Inspire 2. It also offers stress management and an SpO2 sensor, but it lacks NFC and only Connected GPS.

The Fitbit Charge 4 has everything the Luxe does, but adds NFC for Fitbit Pay, offers Spotify controls, has an altimeter and built-in GPS, so it does a better job of accurately tracking workouts as a standalone device.

Fitbit Versa 2 is moving into smartwatch territory. It offers almost everything the Charge 4 does, but adds apps and built-in Alexa. There is no built-in GPS, but the Versa 2 lets you listen to music without your phone.

The Fitbit Versa 3 is a Versa 2 update that adds Google Assistant as an option on top of Alexa, a built-in speaker for taking calls, Pure Pulse 2.0 heart rate technology, and most importantly, built-in GPS.

The Fitbit Ionic looks more like a sports watch than a smartwatch in design. It offers built-in GPS, 50 meter water resistance, mobile payments and smartphone notifications, and all the features found on other Fitbit devices. However, there are no voice assistants.

Fitbit Sense is Fitbit's singing and dancing smartwatch with many sensors on board. They have everything the Versa 3 has to offer, plus an EDA sensor for stress monitoring, ECG capability, and a skin temperature sensor.
