Personally, I just bought a Fitbit Charge, since it was on sale.
I bought a small, but I recommend the Black/Large Version http://amzn.to/1SGhlKb
Fitbit also has a few other fitness trackers you may want to check out:
Fitbit Flex: http://amzn.to/1kVN3W0
Avoid this one doesn’t have a display, so you’ll need to rely on your smart phone for information. Right now it’s going for the same price as the Fitbit Charge, so definitely not worth it.
Fitbit Charge HR: http://amzn.to/1SGhLAn
If you absolutely need heart rate monitoring, then go with the Fitbit Charge HR. It’s much more expensive than the Fitbit Charge, so you really need to decide if that’s an option you must have.
Fitbit Surge: http://amzn.to/1SGhXQ7
This is the, current, high-end Fitbit. It not only has all the functions of the Fitbit Charge HR, but also has GPS Tracking, so it can measure your pace and elevation.
Fitbit is now entering the smart watch game and is doing an interesting Apple Watch Impression. It’s called the Fitbit Blaze and retails for half the price of an Apple Watch. It was announced this week at CES 2016, and looks like you can pre-order it now and have it by March.
