Fitbit Inspire Review: Slim and stylish for £70

Fitbit Inspire Review: Slim and stylish for £70

Fitbit recently replaced its Zip, Flex and Alta activity trackers with the Inspire family. There are two models in the Inspire range - the Inspire and the Inspire HR.

The Fitbit Inspire offers basic activity- and sleep-tracking for a little less money than the Inspire HR, but it misses out on a number of features, not only the heart-rate monitoring as indicated by the product name.

Is the Inspire still an, um, inspiring option to consider if you're after a simple activity tracker?

Design and display

  • Touchscreen OLED display
  • Interchangeable straps
  • Slim and slender design

The Fitbit Inspire offers a very similar design to the slightly more expensive and more capable Fitbit Inspire HR. In fact, at first glance you'd be hard pushed to tell the difference, apart from the colour variations.

The Inspire is around 3mm slimmer than the Inspire HR, and while it sacrifices a heart-rate monitor for this reduction, it is more comfortable to wear than the Inspire HR as a result.

It doesn't need to be worn as tightly as the Inspire HR to sit flush to the wrist due to this lack of HR monitor, while the lightweight plastic build makes it barely noticeable when on.

The plastic build makes for a less premium looking device than the Charge 2 and Alta trackers. The Inspire is waterproof (but somehow lacks swim tracking) - something the Alta and Alta HR missed out on - which is great should you end up getting drenched or jumping in a pool while still wearing it.
