Fitbit Inspire 2 is a full-featured work tracker that offers the best value for any other Fitbit product.
Although it is an enterprise-level tracker, it packs almost all Sense durability features in the end at 70% of the cost. It is also about the third cheaper than another company tracker, the Charge 4.
Put simply, it obviously does not have the complexities of active watchmaking, but it does provide almost everything that most people would need in terms of fitness tracking with a number of steps and a measure of sleep quality.
Fitbit Inspire 2 replaces both the previous Inspire and Inspire HR model, and joins another work tracker that can be considered as the Fitbit smartwatch, the Charge 4; read our comparison of and the best work rings of the year.
While the Inspire 2 does not have GPS integrated with the altimeter, we think it is the best option for many in terms of price features.
To be sure, the Inspire 2 version does not offer enough to tempt Inspire HR owners to improve, except that Inspire owners now want the benefits of monitoring heart rate.
Design and attributes
The Fitbit Inspire 2 is similar to the model the Inspire HR replaces, though in reality, it is smaller and loses the side button to rely on touch-or-touch.
The tracker replaces the smartwatch, so it has a monochrome OLED touch screen instead of a color screen that allows you to track a specific application on the screen and interact with smart apps.
Now you can turn on the screen if you want to look better on the outside, and Fitbit says it is 20% brighter than previous generations.
That being said, there is no denying that it is easy to view statistics on a smartwatch color screen in large size, as in Fitbit Sense (ver review) or Fitbit Versa 3, but a smaller design would be better on your wrist.
And the screen size means that you will have to turn to the mobile app to check certain functions (such as the true setting of alarms).
The tracker itself is water resistant to 50 meters and comes with two sizes of installed glass cords, so you can choose the size that suits your needs.
It weighs 37 grams, is easy and comfortable to wear at all times.
It has a strong aluminum key that is secure; in fact, it feels much safer than the new Infinity Band where new Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 watches are marketed.
Inspire 2 is available in bands in black, white, ivory or grapefruit pink, a better choice than the options that the Inspire family had. It can also be integrated with other available.
Changing bands is very easy once you get the hang of it, although we found it much more complicated than new smartwatches. You can also choose printed silicone or have spaces in the holes, leather, or stainless steel for € 29.95.
Another way is to buy the clip and gro from € 19.95 you can put it on a belt, pocket or bodice if it is comfortable for you when you play sports. You need to set it to clip mode and definitely while in the clip it will not measure your heart rate.
Roles and oversight
Fitbit Inspire 2 is a performance tracker that replaces Inspire and Inspire HR, and it performs well, offering a measure of steps, distance and calories burned.
The ‘Reminders’ feature is a great incentive to get up and start walking, and reach a goal of 250 steps per hour. This has been one of my favorite goals to win every day.
It can be seen automatically when you exercise: running, walking, cycling, swimming, yoga, dancing, kicking a ball, exercise and more. In fact, there are more than 20 exercise modes you can monitor with Inspire 2.
You can set goals for calorie burn, distance and time, and Inspire 2 will give you real-time updates when goals are reached. Swimming Tracking includes length, length, distance, and speed.
You need to enter the pool length first in the ‘Exercise’ app, but swimming tracking is automatic. Inspire 2 starts its water lock when you start swimming to avoid accidental lumps.
Most importantly, it has a heart check screen, like the Inspire HR above, but it’s better than the Inspire without this rating. A 24-hour heart monitor provides a global view of exercise and your daily life.
It’s not the latest version of Fitbit’s PurePulse, but it’s similar to the one you’ll find on Inspire HR. Fitbit sets the goals for the heartbeat into categories: fat burning, cardio, and peak.
As you enter or exit these zones, you gain ‘Alex Zone Zone Minutes’ which is a better matriculation measure than the number of steps you take. The tracker rings as you hit each heart rate considered on the target.
Knowing your heart rate (RHR) is also an important indicator of resilience. Low-pitched heartbeat can indicate efficient heart function and stamina.
Lack of sleep, stress, and weight gain can increase your RHR. Walking, cycling and swimming are good exercises to lower your resting heart rate.
Compared to the high-end Fitbits, it simply does not have an altimeter to calculate the amount of ground you climb during the day, a major motivation for the stairs, but perhaps the metrics for work you can do outside, in addition to GPS.
Instead, connect Inspire 2 to your phone’s GPS to get speed and distance statistics. When running with your phone, you will not have the same accuracy as having a device with integrated GPS, but you will save battery. If that’s what you want, consider Charge 4.
Sleep monitoring and tracking
Like all current Fitbits, the Inspire 2 offers sleep tracking. You can determine the length of your sleep and your quality by looking at the different sleep times, brightness, depth and REM sleep with the final points.
The last point of sleep allows you to encourage yourself to go to bed early and be in a better position to get enough rest: quitting caffeine and doing certain thoughts during Fitbit Guided Breathing can be good habits.
Under the ‘Relax’ app, there is a two-minute guided breathing time that provides a stimulating vibration as you inhale and exhale. There are many features to consider within Fitbit Premium. Includes menstrual health tracking features.
Independence and responsibility
The Inspire 2 offers the longest battery life you can expect from a Fitbit device, with up to 10 full days, twice the Inspire HR replacement, and a few days longer than any other Fitbit on the market. .
The charger is slightly different from the one used in older Inspire and Inspire HR, but it works the same way, holding it firmly behind the tracker to carry it right now.
Smart apps and features
It is a family of smart followers or bracelets, with no standard functions you will find in a wide range of product watches and its app layout you can install.
That said, it will give you mobile notifications on your wrist, including phone ID, WhatsApp messages or messages, and alerts for other messaging apps (for example, Facebook or Messenger).
There is also a quick countdown timer and stopwatch. You can also set alarms, though they should be handled from the Fitbit mobile app instead of the tracker.
There are tons of different face clocks or faces to choose from, and swipe up and down to set and view their metrics.
What separates Fitbits from its competitors is an excellent mobile app that includes all the statistics you can see in the tracker and many more, and more when you sign up for the app Fitbit Premium, now with a free 90-day trial.
There is a leader board of friends competition, where you compete in many steps over the past seven days, a host of badge badges, and a huge selection of tangible challenges and “sacrifices.”
While IXiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 It may be a better option as the price tracker you pay for, its use with the platform has no point in comparison to what Fitbit offers.
In the end, the Inspire 2 combines the basics very well: steps, calories burned, minutes of active activity, distance traveled, heart rate, sleep tracking, swimming tracking, guided breathing, and the ability to automatically get training.
Cheaper than Charger 4While you lose data on the screen, it offers an incredible amount of money with its tracking and monitoring features.
You may not have built-in GPS, but you can connect to your mobile phone’s GPS to get better stats and sports maps. Everything else is built on this advanced threat.
So it is a good price for a good looking, lightweight device with a solid set of features. Strength enthusiasts will want something more sophisticated, like the Versa 3 or Sense, but for most users, the Inspire 2 will be just what you need.
