With the gym closures and social distancing guidelines of the coronavirus pandemic, staying active has become more of a challenge. It can be tempting to spend all day lying on the couch, binge-watching “Emily in Paris” and doomscrolling through Twitter. (Trust me, I’ve been there.) That’s why I’ve been relying on fitness trackers to make sure I’m logging enough movement to prevent my muscles from atrophying.
If you’re in the market for a new fitness tracker, now is your moment. As part of Amazon Prime Day, Fitbits are up to 30 percent off, making achieving those fitness goals all the more affordable. These handy gadgets track your steps, distance traveled, floors climbed, calories burned, hourly activity, and active minutes to add accountability to your workout routines. One of the most popular styles is the Fitbit Versa 2 Health and Fitness Smartwatch, which is $52 off this Prime Day.
The smartwatch has Amazon Alexa built in, plus a Coach app for streaming guided workouts right at home. You can stream your favorite workout playlists from Spotify and Pandora, along with receiving text and call notifications.
But the Fitbit Versa 2 isn’t just for avid exercisers. The watch — which has over 37,300 perfect five-star ratings on Amazon — is packed with wellness features, including a Relax app for mindfulness and breathing sessions. It even notifies you to stretch your legs when you’ve been sitting for too long, and you can set alerts reminding yourself to stay hydrated, get some fresh air, and put your phone away before bed. Conveniently, there’s a sleep tracker that monitors your stages and duration of sleep, assigning you an overall score and picking the best time for you to wake up.
Amazon shoppers love how the Fitbit’s tracking features encourage them to lead a more balanced lifestyle. “I’m amazed by how much this watch motivates me to take those extra steps, exercise regularly, and eat a healthier diet,” one reviewer writes “It’s even helping me get a better night’s sleep.” Another adds, “I especially love the fireworks on the display screen after getting 10,000 steps in a day.”
The watch is available in burgundy, pale pink, gray, and black. Each model is water-resistant and swimproof, with a replaceable band that allows you to swap in a different style whenever you want. The battery life doesn’t disappoint, either — it can last several days. And if the $128 price tag is still too steep, you can check out some of the other Fitbit gadgets currently on sale for Prime Day.
We recommend pouncing on the top-rated Fitbit Versa 2 before the sale ends on October 14 at 11:59 p.m. PT (or while supplies last). One Amazon shopper sums the Fitbit smartwatch up by saying, “If you’re looking for a fitness tracker that has incredible battery life, apps, and sleep tracking, there’s no better product on the market.”
