Fitbits revolutionised fitness in our humble opinion. Fitbit wearable technology (and the app of course) created a mainstream way for users to exercise and to simultaneously share their progress with others. There’s something about exceeding that 10k step goal and the ability to share it and measure yourself up with your friends and family that’s pretty satisfying–satisfaction similar to sliding for great deals we’d say! So what’s the deal with the Fitbit Charge 2 vs Fitbit Ionic? What’s better? Let’s take a look at both products.
