Fitbit Sense 2's Discount Makes It Worth Buying

The Fitbit Sense 2 launched just a couple of months ago, but that hasn’t stopped Fitbit from slashing the price in what can be termed an early Black Friday deal. The Fitbit Sense 2 launched alongside the Versa 4 smartwatch, a cheaper alternative with fewer features but a similar design.

To get the best out of a Fitbit wearable, users need to purchase a Fitbit Premium subscription which offers users more insights into tracked data such as stress management score and sleep score. It also includes wellness reports, guided workouts, and sleep and relaxation tools. Fitbit usually consists of a free subscription with the purchase of new devices; even the Pixel Watch comes with a free six-month subscription. Eventually, users will have to purchase a plan when it expires.

The Fitbit Sense 2 launched for $299.95 in late August and became available for purchase nearly a month later, which means it has only hit store shelves for a little more than a month. Now, Fitbit has knocked off $100, which has brought the price of the wearable down to $199.95. But it doesn’t stop there. While this discounted price is also available on Amazon, those who purchase the watch from Fitbit’s online store can also pick up the Sport Band for free instead of paying $34.95. In addition, they can also save 64 percent off a one-year Fitbit Premium subscription. So, instead of paying $139.98, they get to pay $49.98.

At its original price of $299.95, the Fitbit Sense 2 was hard to recommend considering it is missing some key features from the first-generation model, such as built-in storage for offline playlists and support for Wi-Fi. The latter is surprising as the Sense 2’s spec sheet confirms there is Wi-Fi, but it has been deactivated, leaving Bluetooth as the only way to connect to the device. Nevertheless, there are still several reasons to pick it up, and they make it even worth buying at its current price of $199.

The Fitbit Sense 2 has an improved design over its predecessor. Its aluminum case houses an AMOLED display and has a 5 ATM water-resistant rating. The watch supports heart rate measurement, blood oxygen level monitoring, and sensors for ECG. There is also support for irregular heart rhythm notifications as an alternative way to detect signs of atrial fibrillation. The Fitbit Sense 2 also has built-in GPS, NFC with support for Fitbit Pay and Alexa. In addition, it has been announced that the watch will get support for Google Maps and Google Wallet in the future.

Unlike rival smartwatches, the Sense 2 has a battery life of up to six days and supports fast charging. Interested buyers have the option of choosing from three color options. And for those who want a fitness tracker, Fitbit has also slashed the price of the Fitbit Luxe from $129.95 to $79.95. They also get a discount on the Fitbit Premium subscription.
