The Charge 5 is easily Fitbit’s best tracker, which is enough to make it a safe choice for anyone looking for an activity band.

It covers all the basics – tracking steps, distance, calories burned, hourly activity, floors climbed, heart rate, swim-tracking and advanced sleep; not to mention it has most of the company’s exclusive top-end exercise features too, including Active Zone Minutes.

Its built-in GPS and health measurements means it closely matches the more expensive Fitbit Versa 3 smartwatch too.

Our only complaints are very occasional performance stutters and a few features that Fitbit has been slow to add, but those shouldn’t put you off grabbing the Charge 5.

If you don’t mind a monochrome display, you can also always check out the older Charge 4 and save some money.
