Smartwatches are all the rage with Apple Watch Series 8 recently launching and Google Pixel Watch (finally). The Fitbit Inspire 3 may be a better fit if you’re not shopping for a new watch and prefer a less complicated, lower-priced activity tracker.
A new version of Fitbit’s popular fitness tracker, the Inspire 3, recently launched, has a color display and a 10-day battery, and Fitbit inspire 3 price in UAE under AED 363. In addition to being affordable, it is also lighter and smaller than most smartwatches and fitness bands of similar design.
Over the course of a month, I’ve been using the Fitbit Inspire 3 to track my steps, distance, calories, heart rate, sleep, and more. I’ve encountered some minor issues, but it’s still a great device and I’m looking forward to using it for a while. While it’s no smartwatch, it works with Bluetooth to deliver notifications to my wrist so I can check messages and see who’s calling.
There were a few things we liked about it
Since the first Fitbit tracker price in Dubai, I’ve used and reviewed everything from basic models to smartwatches. With its compact size, many features, and AED 300 price, the refreshed Inspire 3 fits within many budgets. Featuring two-sized flexible silicon straps, the band is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones. Three colors are available: Midnight Zen (dark gray), Morning Glow (orange), and Lilac Bliss (light purple). If you want to dress it up, you can choose a stainless steel mesh band.
Displays in bright colors
The first thing you’ll notice is its colorful AMOLED screen, which replaces the monochrome screen from the Fitbit Inspire 2. This new screen makes the tracker more appealing to look at, and the information is easier to read when it’s bright outside. The slim 1.55-inch case covers its pebble-shaped design, which is smaller and narrower than my current Fitbit Charge 4.
By tapping and swiping through the menus, you can access the same information. The notifications, workouts, alarms, and timers are swiped left. The settings are up, and the health stats are down. Generally, the screen responded well, but sometimes it took me several swipes to get its attention.
Be warned, though: The always-on display will drain the battery of the new model much faster than the 10 days that the Inspire 3 offers. The battery lasted about 11 days without this feature. Fitbit claims you can get about three days of battery life with an always-on screen.
Tracking your fitness
With the Inspire 3, Fitbit makes activity tracking easy. Taking part in a workout on your tracker is as easy as selecting the type of workout (e.g. running, cycling, swimming, treadmill) and then entering the date. You need to re-sync your device after swapping them out by connecting to the app, making changes, and re-syncing.
Active Zone Minutes are also used by the Inspire 3 to help you reach your fitness goals. Your heart rate is monitored, and the amount of time you spend in different zones is calculated based on your fitness level and age. I usually walk steadily in the morning. If I speed up or run, I will get Active Zone Minutes from the “cardio zone.”
Besides tracking distance, calories, steps, the time elapsed, and heart rate, it conducts all of these tasks in the background. As soon as you sync the app with your wrist, you’ll be able to see your workout data.
A new health feature
Inspire 3 is not only a fitness tracker but also a health tracker with its new health monitoring features. It monitors your heart rate and alerts you if it senses an irregular heartbeat if it detects Sp02 (blood oxygen) levels throughout the day.
When the Fitbit app syncs, all this data is accessible and you can drill down for more details. A manual tracking feature, as well as historical data, is also available in the app.
Fitbit’s Inspire 3 is the company’s entry-level tracker, but it still tracks sleep flawlessly. Since it has a silicon band and is small, I decided to give it a try at bedtime.
In spite of Fitbit’s recommendation that you wear the device for 14 nights to get an in-depth sleep profile, I was able to see my amount of deep and REM sleep as well as light and restless sleep even after just a few nights. A good sense of your sleep profile can also be gained from monitoring your heart rate at rest, sleep duration, and blood oxygen levels.
With the Fitbit Inspire 3, you can see your health and fitness statistics, but with the Fitbit Premium subscription, you can access more detailed health metrics and trends.
With the Daily Readiness score, you can learn more about your sleep patterns, heart rate, and activity levels. How was your sleep last night? It might be a good idea to exert a little more effort today.
You may want to take a recovery day if you have a low readiness score. Rather than a tougher workout one morning, it suggested I do a light walk or stretch instead.
This score shows you how much sleep you had, how much time you spent in deep sleep, and how well you recovered. A health and wellness report and stress management tools are also available.
Premium members have access to minute-by-minute breakdowns of their stress scores, such as exertion balance, responsiveness, and sleeping habits. One of the things I liked most was when it showed how my body responded to stress over a longer period of time. It even suggested that I meditate or use the Relax app to lead me through guided breathing exercises.
If you want a better understanding of how your overall activity, heart rate, and sleep affect your body, the Fitbit Inspire 3 Tracker is definitely worth a try. Premium subscriptions are not required to utilize the tracker. During the first six months, your tracker is free, but after that, it will cost you either AED 36.69 or AED 293 per month.
Since it is a budget device, the Inspire 3 lacks the smarts of a device that costs more. Bluetooth tracking can be done using your phone’s GPS (you can do this via Bluetooth if your phone has one), and there’s no built-in music service like Spotify.
The Fitbit Inspire 3 is the best tracker for those looking for an easy-to-use device with an impressive battery life that will last for days. You can also manage stress with stress management sessions, relax for two minutes, get up and move with reminders, and find your phone if you misplace it. Fitbit’s comprehensive app gives you access to meaningful data, and at under AED 300, it’s affordable, comfortable, and easy to wear throughout the day and night.
