Most smartwatches have fitness tracking capabilities, much like the Apple Watch Series 7, and you may be wondering if a fitness tracker is better or worse than a smartwatch. As you may have suspected, the answer depends on you, and how much fitness you want to track.

For example, an Apple Watch is great at tracking different workouts, and it does have the three Activity rings you try and close each day, but in terms of more complex metrics, a dedicated best fitness tracker is going to give you a more in-depth look.

Smartwatches, like the best Apple Watches, are really great if you care more about using your fitness tracker as a communication station for your phone. While some Fitbit models do have smart features, they pale in comparison to an Apple Watch.

Some recommendations for Fitbit

I do more cardio than weightlifting for my money, so the Fitbit Charge 5 is the best for me. I can track all the essential day-to-day stats I need and even track my sleep with its battery that lasts about a week. Plus, the built-in GPS and the beautiful screen with customizable watch faces, make it the best at its price point.

Of course, if you're looking for a fitness tracker that has a lot of smartwatch features, you would likely prefer the Fitbit Sense on your wrist to take advantage of its advanced features like skin temperature readings and the ability to track stress levels. Plus you can also get a 6-month free trial to Fitbit's fitness service Fitbit Premium. Who could beat that deal?
