Fitbit Ionic Black Friday Deals
As Fitbit's iteration of the smartwatch, the Ionic has all the features of their top-of-the-line fitness trackers, along with smartphone features like wallet-free payments and music storage. It's easily the most expensive item on the list, but that means getting a deal will be extra sweet.
The Ionic could see some serious savings on Black Friday – the price has dipped as low as $233 in recent months, and the more affordable Versa is much better reviewed. Keep an eye out for deals as they come up for this fitness tracking smartwatch.
- Outright smartwatch functionality
- 4-day battery
- Bulky design
Fitbit Alta HR Black Friday Deals
Considered one of the best standalone fitness trackers on the market, the Alta HR brings with it a catalog of advanced fitness tracking features, including the PurePulse heart monitor. Plus, the Alta HR is Fitbit's slimmest fitness tracker with a heart monitor included, so you'll barely even notice you're wearing it.
The Alta HR is one of the more expensive standalone fitness trackers on this list, but with all these features, it's worth the extra pennies. Plus, with prices dropping below $100 last year, it's definitely worth watching out for great Black Friday deals on this device.
- Advanced fitness tracking features
- Very slim
- A bit pricey
- Only for fitness
- Hard to read screen in the sun
Fitbit Versa Black Friday Deals
If you're interested in a Fitbit smartwatch, the Versa is the way to go. Not only is it more affordable than the Ionic, but it is also much better reviewed. The only downside is the lack of built-in GPS, but that's far from a dealbreaker.
Prices have barely fluctuated since the Versa's release earlier this year, so it's anybody's guess how it will be affected on Black Friday. That said, some retailers have announced a $50 discount, bringing the total to only $149.
- Less expensive than most smartwatches
- 4-day battery life
- No GPS
Fitbit Ace Black Friday Deals
If you're trying to get your kids in on the active lifestyle, the Fitbit Ace is perfect. Your little one will get fun notifications when they achieve fitness goals and will be reminded to get up and play every once in a while. Plus, you'll have access to the app to get a better idea of how your child stays active.
As for what deals to expect, the Ace has dropped in price quite frequently in the last few months, typically bottoming out at $79. The Ace is one of the more expensive kids-focused fitness trackers out there, so look for that price to go even lower, if you're lucky.
- Great for kids
- Customizable bands and watch faces
- Designed to get them active
- Expensive for a kids model
- Obviously limited functionality compared to other models
Fitbit Flex 2 Black Friday Deals
Fitness trackers used to be classic, display-less wristbands that simply track how active you are. The Flex 2 is a return to that nostalgic time, with all the added advanced fitness trackers to keep you focused on your next workout.
As for Black Friday deals, the Flex 2 is already at the very low end of the price spectrum for Fitbit, so we wouldn't expect too much of a deal when you're looking around. But hey, you never know what's going to get hit with a discount on this retail holiday.
- Classic, minimalist look
- Lots of accessories
- Very small tracker; easy to lose
- No display
Fitbit Zip Black Friday Deals
If you're not looking to endure a bulky fitness tracker on your wrist all day, the Zip can alleviate some of your concern. This clip-able fitness tracker can go anywhere, last up to 6 months without a charge, and gives you daily stats right to your smartphone.
From a price standpoint, the Zip is already pretty inexpensive. However, past Black Fridays have seen the device dip to as low as $28, so keep those eyes peeled for a very solid deal this year.
- Very long battery life
- Inconspicuous and unobtrusive
- Minimal functionality
- Few features
