Looking to get your first fitness monitor or upgrade? There are so many options on the market, it's hard to know which one is right for you.
We look at two of the new fit watches on the market, to help you find out which one is best for your needs.
Features on both the Versa 3 and Inspire 2
The Fitbit Versa 3 and the Inspire 2 are both great fitness monitors. The Versa's bigger price tag means you get some rather nifty extras, such as Oxygen saturation monitoring but also comes with a bigger drain on battery power.
Both are swimproof, being water-resistant to a depth of 50m and come with a long list of features.
All-Day Activity Tracking, Sleep Tracking, Sleep Tracking with Light, Deep, REM, Sleep Score,
All-Day Calorie Burn, Menstrual Health Tracking, Guided Breathing Sessions
24/7 Heart Rate Tracking, Resting Heart Rate,
SmartTrack Auto Exercise Recognition, Reminders to Move, 20+ Goal-Based Exercise Modes, Cardio Fitness Score
Pace & Distance with Phone GPS, Heart Rate Zones
Personalised Reminders, Active Zone Minutes, Smartphone Notifications
Both save 7 days of detailed motion data – minute by minute, daily totals for the last 30 days, and stores heart rate data at 1-second intervals during exercise tracking and at 5-second intervals all other times.
