We’re all waiting for Apple (AAPL) to release the iWatch, with high expectations that it will quickly become the best smartwatch on the market. But in the meantime, other companies are furiously expanding their existing wearable technology lineups. Fitbit is among the most popular and its lineup keeps getting better.
The Zip was the original Fitbit tracker and thrust the company into the spotlight. When the first Fitbit Flex review came out, it was pointed out that the band was one step from being a smartwatch. The new Fitbit Force (the primary subject of this Fitbit review) is poised to take on smartwatch makers directly.
Samsung (SSNLF) took a shot at the smartwatch market with the Galaxy Gear, a wearable device that offered many fitness applications but was roundly criticized for its clunky form factor, short battery life and high price tag.
Read our Fitbit review to find out why the new Fitbit Force might just be the smartwatch alternative that fitness fans choose over something like the Galaxy Gear.
If your New Year’s resolution involves getting fit, a Fitbit tracker is a great way to keep yourself motivated and enjoy some wearable high tech while you’re doing it.
