One reason why fitness trackers are so popular is because they make it easy to track your daily activity and health metrics while motivating wearers to get moving — even if it's just for a few minutes every day.

I'm a longtime fan of Fitbit devices, and have even turned my mom and grandma onto the benefits of wearing one. If you've never given them a try (or were looking for an excuse to upgrade an older model), Amazon Canada currently has a sale on several popular Fitbit models, including 31 per cent off the Fitbit Inspire 2 tracker.

The details

This compact fitness tracker is a sleek alternative to many other bulky smartwatches available on the market. Despite its small size, the Inspire 2 delivers on functionality. Tracking your steps, sleep, calories burned, and more, the smartwatch works as hard as you do to reach your fitness goals.

In addition to its tracking features, the Fitbit Inspire 2 syncs to your smartphone so you can receive text and call notifications while on the go. It pairs with your phone's GPS to see your real-time pace and distance and monitors your resting heart rate to assess exercise efforts, sending you alerts to ramp up the intensity.

The Fitbit Inspire 2 is available in desert rose, black and white, all of which ring in at just $90 with this Amazon sale.

Why shoppers love it

According to Amazon reviewers, the Fitbit Inspire 2 is "amazing" as a way to keep track of your health and fitness goals. It's earned more than 3,000 five-star reviews, with shoppers raving about it being a "simple and fun fitness tracker."

Among the many benefits that the Inspire 2 has (including heart rate tracking, Sleep Scores, and more), shoppers have also been impressed by its "surprising" battery life, which one reviewer shares lasts "16 days on one charge."

"Perfect size, great price and connects with other apps," shared one reviewer.

"It's a game changer," added another, who noted that the Fitbit has helped them stay on track during their weight loss journey.

Some reviewers have found that this watch can be "hard to read" outdoors, as the screen's small size doesn't have as large of a display as other models. It can also appear "dim" in natural light, even at the highest brightness levels.

The final verdict

While the Inspire 2 may not have as many features as some of its other Fitbit counterparts, reviewers have found that it is a "good basic fitness watch."

Those who are just starting out with a fitness tracker will likely find that this model offers everything they need, but it may not be adequate for those looking for more customization. Luckily, you can also shop more Fitbit devices included in this limited-time Amazon sale.
