Fitbit Inspire 3 review

The Fitbit Inspire 3 is a sight for sore eyes. With a bright and colorful touchscreen, a slimmer and more rounded look, and numerous tracking features to help keep you active, Fitbit's entry-level fitness tracker may be the most affordable Fitbit for new users.

One of Fitbit’s sleek and affordably priced trackers has been redesigned for 2022. Although it costs less than its predecessor, the Fitbit Inspire 3 now has features like an always-on colour screen and blood oxygen tracking. For those living in the UK, where it costs £5 less at £84.99, it is more affordable. Given the upgrades, the price for people in the US and Europe stays at $99.95/€99.95, which is still reasonable.

It’s challenging to maintain excellent health and reduce weight if you don’t monitor your physical state on a daily basis, which is why buying a fitness tracker like the Fitbit Inspire 3 is a fantastic option. The Inspire 3 is one of Fitbit’s more affordable, lighter, and smaller gadgets, but its simple design raises the question of whether it can still provide all the features you need in a fitness tracker.

Three colours are available for the Fitbit Inspire 3 smartwatch are Midnight Zen, Lilac (my favourite), and Morning Glow. Outside of the normal black, I think the colour selection is lacking. Fortunately, there are several more possibilities online, like as the Stainless Steel Mesh or Translucent Bands. The Fitbit Inspire 3 smartwatch can also be purchased with a clip so that it can be hung up or tucked away. There aren’t many neutral options even with those selections, which I hope they address in the future.

Design

The new Fitbit Inspire 3 has undergone a complete overhaul from a design standpoint, in contrast to the cosmetic changes made to the Versa and Sense devices. The Inspire is no longer a flat band component; it is rather a rounded pebble. It is totally detachable from the wristband and may be fastened to another one or even be clipped to clothing like a vintage iPod Shuffle. It has plastic housing, Capsense buttons, and a touchscreen with a 124 x 206 pixel Gorilla Glass screen.

We approve of it since it significantly improves the otherwise average Inspire series. Unfortunately, the replacement wristbands and clips are only available separately, and their prices are not currently available. But it’s a brilliant concept that provides the Inspire 3 a lot of versatility. A woman is seen strapping on boxing gloves in one of the advertising images below.

The Fitbit Inspire 3 can be clipped to your shirt, unlike most fitness trackers that would get in the way. However, as much of the data gathered by the Inspire 3 depends on skin-to-skin contact, it is yet unknown how good the metrics are when clipped off-wrist. A first-ever always-on display feature is packed into the rounded design, which is thin and water-resistant up to 50 metres. With the Inspire 3, there isn’t much swiping or tapping required because active zone minutes are logged automatically, offering a strap-on-and-forget UX.

Display

Additionally, the Fitbit Inspire 3 provides an always-on display mode so that you can always see your watch face. However, this setting significantly reduces the battery life, cutting down 10 days of use to to approximately three, as always-on displays frequently do. Fortunately, Fitbit made switching between display settings really easy. To turn “Auto wake” on or off, simply slide downward on the watch face. Swipe continuously to enter the Settings menu and toggle “Always-On.”

The Fitbit module’s plastic frame/casing curls down at the sides into the front glass display, making it simple to tap, swipe, and interact with the tracker’s AMOLED display. Speaking of, the display is significantly simpler to read than the monochrome panel used by earlier Inspire models because it is vivid, bright, and clear.

The module has touch-sensitive surfaces on both sides. You may just press both buttons with your fingers to turn on the display, effectively squeezing the pebble, then swipe up, down, left, and right as usual to navigate the user interface. A second squeeze will either activate the Inspire 3’s always-on display feature or turn the display off.

Interface and Controls

The Fitbit Inspire 3’s user interface has been improved since the previous model to increase the tracker’s usefulness. You can rotate your wrist, press the two side buttons indicated previously, or double-tap the screen to activate the tracker. You may access quick options like water lock, sleep mode, DND mode, and auto wake by swiping downward from the top of the screen.

You may adjust the display, quiet mode, heart rate, Active Zone Minute notifications, and vibrations via the settings app. You may view your daily statistics for all of your health measures by swiping upward from the primary watch display. Steps, Active Zone Minutes, sleep, and a lot more are among these metrics.

There are no physical buttons present because you may navigate using both the touch screen and the side capacitive sensors. No matter where you are in the interface, they will wake or snooze the display or return you to the primary watch view.

Tracking

The module has touch-sensitive surfaces on both sides. You may just press both buttons with your fingers to turn on the display, effectively squeezing the pebble, then swipe up, down, left, and right as usual to navigate the user interface. A second squeeze will either activate the Inspire 3’s always-on display feature or turn the display off.

The Fitbit Inspire 3 is one of the best Fitbits and costs less than $100. It tracks your heart rate, steps, calories, Active Zone Minutes, stress, SpO2, and sleep. Running, walking, biking, kickboxing, Pilates, tennis, and golf are just a few of the 21 various workout shortcuts that can be loaded onto the watch from a fitness perspective. You can go through and view real-time feedback on the watch while participating in an activity, but it’s difficult to do on such a small screen. We found it more convenient to begin the test exercise first, then clip the tracker to my sports bra.

Other Features

Smart features such as call, text, and app alerts are useful for providing you with a heads-up even when your phone is not close by. You can use the tracker’s Find My Phone feature to find your phone on your own if you accidentally left it in the next room or buried it under a mountain of clothes. The Fitbit Inspire 3 relaxation mode, which leads you through a few minutes of calm, deliberate breathing. This function allowed it to lower our heart rate from 76 to 70 beats per minute.

Using the wearable’s alarm and clock features, as well as the exercise mode to track a specific activity, is also helpful. You also enjoy the “find my phone” function, which, if your phone is connected to the Inspire 3, will sound an alarm, making it easier for you to find it. In connection with it, the Inspire 3 has many of the same features as its predecessor.

According Fitbit Inspire 3 “can capture all your movement, automatically tracking Active Zone Minutes, calories burnt, distance, heart rate, and steps.” While you’re working out, the tracker will show you on-screen when you’re in the fat burn, cardio, or peak zones so you can see how hard you’re working. It will also gently remind you to move around throughout the day. Your oxygen saturation levels, or SpO2, will also be monitored by the Insprie 3, which can aid in your faster recovery.

Battery Life

The Inspire 3’s claimed battery life of up to 10 days held true, especially in light of the screen’s new colour and brightness. We worked out at least once a day for a week on the Fitbit Inspire 3 with the always-on display turned on, and we concluded with the tracker set at 10%. Pretty decent considering we charged our Apple Watch 7 every night during that time (this comparison may not be fair because the Inspire 3 does not have built-in GPS, which means that tracking activities do not significantly reduce battery life, but the Apple Watch 7 does).

The Fitbit Inspire 3 has a truly remarkable 10-day battery life, which includes sleep tracking, some basic workout tracking, and basically wearing the device constantly during my tests. Even with the new tracker’s more vivid colour display, the battery life is comparable to that of the Inspire 2.

Even though battery life may vary depending on your usage and significantly if you choose the always-on display option, which reduces battery life to three days it was still pleasantly happy that we didn’t need to charge the tracker nearly as frequently as you did other Fitbit models that we have  tested.

The battery life of the Inspire 2 was double that of the Inspire 1, and the Inspire 3 still has a 10-day battery life. In fact, we discovered during my testing that the fitness tracker was only using 10% or less every day, indicating that it may last longer. The drawback is that using the new always-on display function will drastically cut down on battery life.

Price and Configurations Options

Along with the Sense 2 and Versa 4, the Fitbit Inspire 3 was unveiled on August 24. The Inspire 3 now has a colour AMOLED display in addition to its excellent battery life and a wealth of health tracking functions. The Inspire 3 costs $99 and comes with a free trial of Fitbit Premium for six months. Along with being available from Fitbit directly, it is currently offered by the majority of your preferred merchants.

Costing $99/£84.99 is the Fitbit Inspire 3. On September 22, 2022, it will be launched after being preordered. Although the Fitbit device itself is only offered in black, customers can choose from three distinct band colours morning light, lilac, and black. The bracelet is offered in small and big sizes. As with all of the top Fitbits, a variety of accessories are available, such as metal bands and an exercise clip that enables you to wear the tracker when working out while wearing clothing.

Final Words

The Fitbit Inspire 3 combines all the essentials in a well-designed packaging, making it an incredibly remarkable entry-level fitness tracker from a reputable manufacturer. The cohesiveness between the physical tracker, your health data, and the end-user experience make it worth a little bit more money than the cheapest budget trackers with similar total technology. Its sleep tracking is excellent, its companion app is not unduly complicated, and its physical presence on the wrist is minimal.
