Now it’s 2018 your new years resolutions are kicking in, and activity trackers are super popular. Fitbits will be the #1 choice for many looking to get more healthy in 2018. Most Fitbit users keep their healthy promises longer thanks to the great app and challenges with friends, colleagues and family.
Fitbits have ruled the fitness tracker market for years, and the current line-up is better than ever thanks to the introduction of the company’s first fully fledged smartwatch, the Ionic.
If you’re thinking of buying a Fitbit, you can find great deals and discounts if you know where to look. Here, we bring you the best Fitbit deals we’ve found.

There’s also up to £30 off the Fitbit Alta, depending on size and colour choice. The Alta HR can be found for up to £40 off.

Which Fitbit should you buy?
There are seven activity trackers in Fitbit’s current range: Flex 2, Alta, Alta HR, Charge 2, Blaze, Zip, and the new Ionic. You may also find older models heavily reduced. Their features vary significantly, as do their prices.
If you’d prefer a discreet activity tracker that isn’t worn around the wrist, you might like the Zip. For the most impressive features and a watch-buckle wristband, look to the Charge, Blaze, Alta HR or Ionic. And for pop-clasp sitting in the middle of the range when it comes to features there’s the original Alta and the Flex 2.
We’ve got a complete guide to choosing the best Fitbit here, so spend some time researching which to look out for on Black Friday itself.
It’s worth making a note of how much the Fitbit you’re hoping to buy costs right now, and determining how much you’d like to spend on one now. Here’s a rundown of the current models and their RRPs:
