Why Fitbit is Still the Best Fitness Tracker in 2017

It seems everyone has their own version of a fitness tracker– Nike, Garmin, Under Armour, Apple, even Kate Spade.  As the fitness tracker market continues to grow, more and more companies are creating their own Fitbit – yet Fitbit continues to claim the lion’s share of the market, and there are lots of reasons why.


Different price point and activity tracker entry levels to meet the needs of almost every fitness enthusiast and pocket book.  A basic Fitbit Zip product will cost as little as $70 while a top of the line Fitbit Blaze will cost around $300.

Silent alarm – a personal favourite.  Why wake up to a screeching alarm clock when you can wake to the silent vibration of your Fitbit on your wrist?

Silent “message received” notification.  A gentle vibration from your Fitbit will let you that you’ve received a text message on your smart phone (when your phone is nearby).  You no longer have to be tied directly to your cellphone
