#1 Optimise Your Routine

Constantly pushing your physical limits can lead to a fitness plateau, or worse, burnout. So listen up, gym junkies, and put down those dumbbells because this is where these latest hi-tech Fitbits do some of their best work! Snap up the Fitbit Versa 4, the Fitbit Inspire 3 or Fitbit Sense 2 – and you’ll also land a six-month membership to Fitbit Premium, where you can access your personalised Daily Readiness Score. By combining your activity, sleep and heart rate stats, it calculates the exercise intensity your body is up for. Whether that’s pumping iron or stretching it out with Pilates, you can push to your full potential without going overboard.

#2 Become An All-Rounder

Don’t be a one-trick workout wonder when it comes to staying active. Mixing up your exercise routine is a sure-fire way to work new muscles and stay motivated. Need some inspiration? Just look at your wrist! The Fitbit Inspire 3 has 20 different exercise modes to choose from and you’ll get real-time stats on pace and calorie burn for all of them.


Want more? The Fitbit Versa 4 and Fitbit Sense 2 up the ante with a colossal 40+ exercise modes, including golf, kickboxing, skiing, yoga, tennis and even stand-up paddleboarding. Swim-proof and lightweight, all three Fitbit releases are designed to follow you anywhere.

#3 Burn And Earn

Need an extra push to pull on your runners on frosty mornings? Fitbit’s Active Zone Minutes feature – available across the latest Versa, Sense and Inspire ranges – will keep you on track to hit those workout goals, no matter what. Think of it as a star chart for your fitness!


“Fitbit fans love Active Zone Minutes because it keeps them accountable by showing their exercise efforts adding up in real time,” says John. “The more intense your activity, the more minutes you earn and your watch will ping you with extra encouragement when you’re hitting your stride.”

#4 Get Off-Grid

Go wild and hit the great outdoors. Whether you prefer to hike, ride or rock climb, there's no limit to how far (or fast!) you can go with Fitbit - the Versa 4 and Sense 2 have built-in GPS to help you track your route, pace and distance. Versa 4 and Sense 2 also boast a battery life of 6+ days, so why not turn that next cross-country trek into a camp-out!

#5 Bring In The Experts

Paying a personal trainer to put you through your paces? Save your hard-earned money because the Versa 4 with Fitbit Premium has hundreds of guided video workouts to try. A personal trainer on your wrist – yes, please!

#6 Get Mind-Fit

A healthy mind creates a healthy body, so strap on a Fitbit and get a handle on your stress. Managing stress can help you sleep better (your Fitbit will track that!), and that means more energy for active days.


The latest Versa, Sense and Inspire ranges will send you a daily Stress Management Score showing your body’s physical reactions to stress. Scoring low? Take it slow and use your exercise time for some guided breathing and meditation, courtesy of your Versa 4. The Inspire 3 will also connect you to the Relax app, and the Sense 2 can send smart notifications, prompting you to log your emotions.
