Looking for an affordable activity tracker that’s great for fitness as well as logging the steps you take each day? The Fitbit Inspire HR is the perfect buy for the ways it builds and improves on its baby brother, the Fitbit Inspire.
And it has everything from small details such as a traditional buckle rather than a push clasp, to bigger bells and whistles including a heart rate monitor, the ability to manually log and set targets for exercise sessions and even a cardio fitness level that helps you really see how your fitness is improving. And it’s still waterproof and lets you change the strap to customise the look the of the activity tracker. The best bit is that it’s just £20 more at £89.99.
