Fitbit’s most capable fitness and health tracking device, the Charge 5, is thinner, lighter and less bulky than the Charge 4, but is also $ 30 more expensive. However, Amazon is now making it more enjoyable by offering its first discount, selling it for $ 130 in black / graphite with a 28 percent discount, or $ 50 off the regular price.

The Charge 5 earned a solid Engadget rating of 82, thanks to features such as built-in GPS, built-in health sensors to monitor stress, a color touch screen, Fitbit Pay and multi-day battery life. With rounded edges, a soft-touch strap and a 10 percent thinner design, we also found it more comfortable than before. The main disadvantages are the lack of screen music playback, limited applications on the device and incompatibility with Apple Health or Google Fit.
If you need something simpler, cheaper and a little more modern, Amazon also has a Fitbit Luxe on sale. It is now available for $ 100 instead of $ 150 in lunar white / soft gold or black / graphite, saving $ 50 or 33 percent.

The Fitbit Luxe also received 82 in our Engadget review, offering benefits such as a slim and comfortable design, capable of monitoring health and good battery life. It is also ideal for people with small joints thanks to its gentle size, narrow width and shape that is “inspired by the human body,” as Fitbit describes it. The downside is a small touch screen that can be difficult to read and handle. However, since it offers many functions available only in its smartwatches, it offers a good balance between size and functionality.
