Even if you’re only walking from the couch to the kitchen these days, a fitness tracker can give you the boost you need to actually stand up and get those steps in (and maybe, you know, a few more). Right now, you can buy a Fitbit Versa smartwatch for $130 — 35 percent off the original price — to track steps, calories burned, heart rate, sleep, and more. It also features a bunch of exercise modes that track your activity more accurately during at home workouts that don’t involve many actual steps, like yoga or interval workouts. The Versa isn’t just a fitness tracker, though. You can link it up with your phone to view calls, texts, and calendar alerts, as well as access a variety of apps, and store up to 300 songs to play on your wireless headphones. Fitbit released the Versa 2 late last year with Amazon Alexa integration and a slightly longer battery life, but the guts of the watch are very similar, so you might as well save some money.
