The best smartwatch debate has come down to two potential candidates. Most of the people are choosing either Fitbit or Apple watch as their companion.
Fitbit Sense was just recently launched with a number of upgrades from the previous model. A better design and shape alongside many great features. On the other hand, Apple maintained their extraordinary standards. They came with new colours and materials. Apple also released a number of bands to go with the watch.
The new Fitbit Sense’s starting price is $299. Apple Watch Series 7 is completely opposite of this. The starting price of series 7 is $399 and this can easily go up to $600 depending on different materials, features and sizes. Apple watch series 7’s price gets high with the inclusion of the cellular feature. It also varies with different size you want. The 45mm size is the most expensive one. Different materials such as aluminium costs lower but if you want to look into materials like titanium or stainless steel, they would cost you a lot. Fitbit Sense is clearly more cheaper.
Both watches share a similarity between them. They both have GPS which allows you stay away from your phone. If we look into fitness, Apple watch sets 3 basic goals for your everyday with their ‘activity’ feature. Fitbit allows you to record your cardio sessions, heart-rate during exercise and it even records your temperature. Fitbit also gives you recovery feedbacks. Both of these can check your heart rate, record your steps and send you notifications about either walking or standing. Although, Fitbit can also track your weekly sleep routine and for how long do you sleep each day. Apple is still far from it.
Apple watch has a more sleek design compared to Fitbit. Its appearance is more glossy. Series 7 is also bigger than the previous models thanks to its 1.7mm bezel. On the contrary, Fitbit doesn’t have any buttons. It uses the support of sensors to operate through. This gives the watch a more modern look as Apple watch has two buttons on the right side.
In all fairness, Apple watch has more features that make a smartwatch a smartwatch. It gets occasional software updates just like the iPhone. Apple watch also gives users the freedom to explore through many apps of its own and the mobile paired. With the introduction of QWERTY, you can now even have your own keyboard for the watch to send messages. Apple watch also has a number of customisable watch faces. You can even include pictures from your gallery into them. Apple watch also has the luxury of siri.
On the other hand, Fitbit has two voice command features. Users can choose either between Alexa or Google Assistant. Fitbit also has a top notch battery. A fully charger Fitbit could last for almost 6 days without charging.
Both watches have the ability to answer calls, run Spotify music on your mobile and you can also have the feature of NFC mobile payments.
Considering all these comparisons, we came to a conclusion that you should go for Fitbit Sense. Its cheaper, has a number of fitness and health features and also has an amazing battery life. But if you’re looking for a smartwatch experience, go for Apple Watch Series 7 as it covers all the aspects a smartwatch should have.
