Fitbit Inspire 3 : Is it Worth Buying? Definitely Yes

After using the Fitbit Inspire 3 for nearly 3 months, I’m happy to say that I’m still very pleased with the product. It was really hard to find anything bad to say about the fitness tracker, which is a real testament to its quality and it’s simplicity.

Is the Fitbit Inspire 3 worth it?, In my experience the answer is definitely yes, but I think it’s worth it in a different sense than most people would assume. Im going to answer this question from a

  • Person who is a current Fitbit premium subscriber, and
  • A person who decides to not to go premium, but want a fitness tracker.

I strongly believe that these two scenarios will provide us with the most comprehensive view of the Fitbit Inspire 3’s true worth, from distinct angles. In addition, I will outline some of the most noteworthy features I have noticed about this product.

Definitely Worth it From a Current Fitbit Premium Subscriber

If you’re like me and you’ve chosen to be a Fitbit premium subscriber, then you’ll be happy to know that the experience you get hasn’t changed. There are numerous motives why somebody would opt for a Fitbit premium subscription, and that’s quite clear from the fact that health tracking is a priority to you.

Not all of the Fitbit premium services are available in the Fitbit Inspire 3 so if you chose to go premium because of this feature then you will need to upgrade to the latest Fitbit devices, but I will tell you which ones to pick.

Afib Detection and EDA Scan Not Available for Inspire 3

If a healthy heart is important to you, it is essential to understand that the Afib detection and EDA scanning features are not available on the Fitbit Inspire 3. You are still able to set a specific threshold for your resting heart rate, and receive notifications if your bpm exceeds the set amount.

I also found out that the heart rate threshold is only available in certain markets. If you live in the following countries then heart rate threshold is available to you

American Samoa, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Guam, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Italy ᐧ Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Mauritius, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, U.S. Virgin Islands, Vietnam

All Day Body Response Tracking Not Available for Inspire 3

The Fitbit Sense watch is the only device that offers this incredible feature. If you were considering investing in an Inspire 3 thinking it could provide you with all day body response tracking, then you should think again – the Inspire 3 does not have the capacity to house the cEDA sensor, which is what allows for tracking of your emotional responses every time you reflect.

The Fitbit Inspire 3 may not have the two premium features of a smart watch, but it excels in other areas. It can provide reliable tracking of sleep health, which is why I made the decision to upgrade to the premium version. After all, sleep health is an essential part of any healthy lifestyle.

Fitbit Inspire 3 Is Worth it From a Basic Fitness Tracker Perspective

When you do decide to purchase a Fitbit Inspire 3, a free 6 month premium membership will be offered to you as an added bonus. You have the option to allow the membership to lapse when the 6 months is up, and even without the premium membership, the Fitbit Inspire 3 is still worth it.

The market for a basic fitness tracker is not only ample but also highly competitive. The Fitbit Inspire 3 is a great example of this, offering a versatile range of features and ease of use. What I love most about this product is its simplicity, quality, and affordability. Therefore, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the Inspire 3 is a great choice for anyone looking for a basic fitness tracker.

My Favourite Features of The Fitbit Inspire 3

There were really two things that really stood out for me when it came to my experience. I have tested so many smart watchs lately and I found it to be a nice change for once to use a basic fitness tracker. You just tap and go, all of the activity tracking is synched to your phone and then your done pretty simple tracker.

1. Battery Life Is Fantastic

As a heavy user of my Fitbit Inspire 3, my activity level is fairly active and I get to the gym on a regular basis. My typical usage are as follows

  • 110-120 minutes of exercise per day
  • All day heart rate tracking
  • Sleep tracking at night
  • 23-30 messages per day
  • 100 AOD (always on display) activations per day

Based on my typical usage I would burn around 8% of battery life per day. Which is a fantastic economy rate for any device. Also note that my typical usage is based off the biggest battery drainers, but at a 8% economy rate the big battery drainers dont really affect the battery life at all, which is the part that I find most impressive.

I also use that 8% economy rate a lot especially when I am running low on battery life. When I wake up in the morning and check my watch is at 12% battery life, I know I can get through my entire day with confidence and then charge the watch before I go to bed at night. During my test I have pushed it almost to 12 days which is fantastic value. However the recharge rate is a little slow. From 0% to 100% it takes 150 minutes to fully charge the watch.

Fitbit Inspire 3 battery life is excellent

2. Sleep Tracking is Reliable (Premium Subscribers)

The main reason I decided to get the premium subscription was because of the sleep tracking capability. Fitbit is a leader when it comes to this, with great accuracy and reliability. Other sleep tracking brands such as Apple Watch, Withings, and Whoop are also quite well-known. The Fitbit Inspire 3 is right up there with the top brands in sleep tracking, which is great given its price point.

Final Conclusion

The Fitbit Inspire 3 is an absolutely amazing fitness tracker and is currently one of the top picks on the market. It’s definitely in the same playing field as some of the other fitness trackers I’ve reviewed, such as the Huawei Band 7 and the Xiaomi Mi Band 6. If you’re already a Fitbit Premium subscriber or just someone looking for a basic yet highly effective fitness tracker, this watch won’t disappoint!

I could not find anything really bad about the watch, but then again it’s probably like that because the Fitbit Inspire 3 aligns with my own health goals and lifestyle, which is

  • Reliable sleep tracking
  • Exellent battery life
  • A way to track my workouts
  • A way to monitor my activity level stress (daily readiness score)
  • V02 max readings (cardio tracking)
