How to get two popular Fitbits at deep discounts

If you’re looking for more motivation to stay active, a Fitbit might be one of the best investments you make in health and wellness. Fortunately, two of the most popular models — the Fitbit Luxe and Fitbit Charge 5 — are now more than 30% off. 

While Fitbit is no stranger to slashing prices on its top fitness trackers, this week’s price cuts are significant. For one, the new low prices arrive just in time for Valentine’s Day. And considering the Luxe and Charge 5 are at their lowest prices ever, there’s no time like now to buy one of these devices as a gift for yourself or someone else. 

What you should know before you buy a Fitbit

What does a Fitbit do?

Fitbits are fitness trackers that log health and activity information, ranging from steps to heart rate to sleep quality. Not only do they work with the Fitbit app, but they’re compatible with dozens more, including MyFitnessPal, Peloton, Strava, Alexa and Weight Watchers. 

Fitbits do more than log information, though. The devices are ardent supporters of active lifestyles. If you aren’t moving enough during the day, the Fitbit sends a “get moving” reminder for you to get up and walk around. Certain Fitbits also have programs that buzz when it’s time to step up the pace during specific activities, such as high-intensity interval training. 

What is Fitbit Premium?

The free Fitbit app offers plenty of features, but to maximize Fitbit’s potential, consider signing up for Fitbit Premium. The membership costs $79.99 annually and offers over a dozen advanced functions, including access to over 200 workouts and mindfulness sessions, blood glucose trends, sleep score breakdowns and wellness reports. 

Fitbit Premium’s latest addition to its content library is StrongWill, an exclusive collection from Will Smith featuring workout and mindfulness sessions led by expert trainers. And yes, Fitbit confirms that workouts include “Will-isms” from the Fresh Prince himself.
