Although we can’t currently be up in the gym, working on our fitness, to get Fergalicious, there are still ways to keep active until we’re out of lockdown and life begins to return to normal.

This includes bracing the colder weather and getting our steps in, so investing in a smart watch might be a good idea to keep track of your progress, your heart rate and sleeping pattern.

From the Inspire to Charge and Versa and Sense models, there’s quite a few versions of the Fitbit, alongside other branded smart watches. So if you’re not sure which one best suits your need, or you’re just after the best priced one then we’ve got you covered.

The official Fitbits can be pretty pricey, but if you want the real deal then there’s a couple of discounts at the moment. The Inspire 2 model features include all day activity tracking, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, battery life for up to 10 days, and tools for a better night sleep. You can see the best price for this model from leading retailers below.

For a little more you can buy the Fitbit Charge 4 model. This one comes with a built in GPS and is water-resistant up to 50m, so if you’re a swimmer or looking to take it up more in 2021 then this is the more ideal model for you. To find out the best deal for the Fitbit Charge 4 then you can check out the price comparison below.

If you want a lower budget option then maybe avoid the Fitbit brand altogether and go for smart watches that operate similarly. There’s a £29.59 watch from Willful that is also waterproof, has sport mode for different exercises and can be connected to social media and music apps.

The Willful watch comes in black, while one from LETSCOM in a rose gold colour is priced at £36.99, again with similar functionalities including calorie, steps and km information but it does not have the waterproof feature.

Both of these watches are available on Amazon and are rated as best sellers due to their usage and cheaper price bracket. To get the £29.59 watch by Willful go to Amazon here and for the LETSCOM watch at £36.99 go to Amazon here.

Alternatively if you’re after something extra then the smart watches from Apple and Samsung might be best for you, particularly if you’re mobile handset also comes from one of those companies.

These smart watches come with activity tracking capabilities, similar to the Fitbit as well as voice call, commands, smartphone notifications and contactless payments.

The Series 3 Apple Watch in black is available from retailers including John Lewis and Currys PC World, while the latest model, Series 6 and is available in space grey, rose gold and navy.

And if you’re after the Series 6 Apple Watch model then you can find the best price and retailer for you below:

If you’re a Samsung user and want a smart watch to connect to your phone then there’s the original Active, priced at £129 which comes in black, green, pink and silver.

Or alternatively there’s newer model, Active 2 which is priced between £199-£319 depending on which design you choose and you can see the best price below:

Plus both the Apple and Samsung watches can often be added to your existing phone plan, just check with your provider such as EE or O2 to see if you’re able to add on. This way you can pay off the smart watch monthly, rather than forking out the entire amount at once.
