Top 10 Best Fitbits for Small Wrists in 2022

Best Fitbits for Small Wrists

Everyone is suffering from Fitbit fever these days; your friend’s got one, their friend’s got one, and even your favorite celebrity has it. They are all over social media. But what are they? The company itself is called Fitbit. Fitbits are computing devices that you wear on your wrists.

They track your physical condition and activity throughout the time you wear them. You can clip some of the Fitbit products to your clothes. But their most famous products are wristwatches and hand bands. Fitbit devices measure the number of steps you’ve taken, quality of sleep, and your heart rate.

If you are serious about achieving your fitness goals, then getting a Fitbit band will motivate you further. It has that effect on people. You’ll see the little progress you make every day. There are plenty of products in the market, but women often have difficulty finding suitable ones for small wrists. Usually, the smaller bands that are available in the market tend to have fewer features.

But it seems that Fitbit has caught up with that. In this article, we have reviewed the top ten Fitbit products for small wrists.

Factors To Consider

Wrist Size

You are here because you know that your wrists are small. But what is the average size of a small wrist? In general, a wrist that measures about 5 to 6.5 inches in circumference is considered to be small. Many watch and tracker brands don’t put accurate sizes of their products on their websites, so that makes your shopping a bit tricky.

But we think a watch of 35 to 40 mm size should be fine for small wrists. Make sure that you know what size you are looking for before making a purchase.


Since trackers and smartwatches are digital devices, they need electricity to work. Do your research and read customer feedback. Find yourself a product with a battery that lasts long. Trackers and smartwatches are devices designed for people to wear 24/7. So, it shouldn’t require you to charge it every other day.


It would be great if your tracker or smartwatch has GPS and a heart rate sensor. Every added sensor means that your device will be able to track more activities. And isn’t that why you want these wearable devices anyway? But you have to keep in mind that you may have to pay more for it.

Water Resistance

Your device should be water-resistant, especially if you’d like it to monitor your activities 24/7. Make sure that the device that you buy is fully water-resistant. You can find trackers and watches that can survive under 50m depth of water.

As the tracker’s name suggests, this device inspires you to ditch your couch and get up and moving. To do that, it features a 3-axis accelerometer, Bluetooth, and rudimentary auto-tracking. When you scroll down through the screen, you’ll see step count, minutes spent active, calories burnt, distance traveled, and reminders to move.

Battery Life
The tracker lasts for up to five days when you use it to receive notifications. That is not praiseworthy; we expected more since it doesn’t offer many features. But it charges quickly in 1 to 2 hours with the help of a charger dock.

Battery Life
The company says that it can last for up to 7 days, which is an impressive feat. However, if you use the GPS, heart monitor, and Spotify Support, the battery might drain faster. It charges quickly, though.

By launching Versa, Fitbit turned its fortunes around. Fitbit has proved that you don’t necessarily have to add endless features to make a terrific tracker. It doesn’t have to empty your wallet too. This tracker doesn’t replace your phone. It is a toned-down version of a smartwatch, which is not a bad thing.

This device is for users who want to use it for what it is: keeping track of your fitness. But it also has some extra perks. The screen of this device is a combination of square and circle. This device comes with two types of bands: small and large.

It is available in six colors: black, rose, copper rose, navy and pink woven, and smokey grey and stone grey. The maximum screen brightness is 1,000 nits, which is a lot. You won’t have any trouble seeing things in direct sunlight.

  • Comes in three colors
  • Stylish design

  • Waterproof

This is among the most successful tracking devices of Fitbit. It is now superseded by Charge 4, but we included it in this list because it is an excellent tracker. Plus, it was initially dropped in 2018, so now its prices would have decreased a lot.

It has a built-in GPS so you can run, walk, and do all cardio oriented exercise and activities on it. It has a big screen, so you won’t have to squint over the screen to see the figures. But that doesn’t mean that it is bulky. It is actually 40% thinner than its predecessors. It is also completely waterproof.

  • Battery lasts for 5 days
  • Color screen
  • Solid battery life
  • Heart rate monitor

This is another great attempt by Fitbit to create a fitness watch that has tracker and smartwatch features. It is available for small wrists. It has a metal frame and a rubber-textured strap. The screen is small but large enough to view necessary things on the menu. It is available in seven colors.

This watch can survive rain, sweat, or an accidental splash but don’t wear it in showers or swimming because it isn’t completely waterproof. Users who’d like to wear it 24/7 might not like that. It supports GPS, but you’ll have to use your phone for that. It also supports Bluetooth.

It has a built-in heart rate monitor, though, so you can track your heart’s activity. It also lets you monitor your sleep. Furthermore, it also features an axis accelerometer, altimeter, and ambient light sensor.

Smart Features
You can connect it to your phone and get notifications for messages, calls, and even upcoming events. It also lets you control your phone music.

Fitbit Flex 2 Band

“Slim design but no display.”

Fitbit Flex 2 Band

  • Weighs 0.6 ounces
  • Suitable for wrists of 35 to 40 mm
  • Equipped with auto exercise recognition feature
  • Comes with LEDs and battery
  • Slim design
  • Waterproof
  • Can be worn as a pendant
  • Accurate measurements
  • No display

This slim tracker band is slim and versatile feature-wise and 30% smaller than the original tracker. The band is narrow and fits your wrist snuggly. It is available in many colors, and it is suitable for small wrists. We just wish Fitbit made tying the band a little easier as the button strap is a bit tricky to use.

It is available in many colors, and it is suitable for small wrists. We just wish Fitbit made tying the band a little easier as the button strap is a bit tricky to use.

There are other strap options, but you’ll have to pay for them. You are not limited to wearing it on your wrist; you can also wear it pendant-style. There is no screen in this tracker; it uses LEDs instead, positioned in a vertical position. It connects with your phone so that you can view your progress from there on the app.

It tracks your walks, swimming, running, and cycling. That reminds us, it is fully waterproof. It doesn’t connect to GPS, though. Since it has a 3-axis accelerometer, it tracks your sleep, active minutes, steps, distance, and calories consumed.

It is compatible with iPhones, Windows devices, and Androids. You can download the app on the device and then double-tap your tracker. Once the device pairs, it will automatically sync all the data to your device.

The battery lasts for a week. You can charge it quickly if it runs out on you.

Which Fitbit is best?

If you consider price and features, then we think for small wrists, Fitbit Inspire 2 is the best option. It has all the features of a tracker and long battery life.

What can a Fitbit watch do?

Fitbit smartwatches can do all that any other expensive smartwatch may offer. Fitbit Sense smartwatch offers all the features of a high-end smartwatch. However, it is a bit expensive.

Fitbit vs. Apple Watch. Which should I buy?

If you are budget conscious and want a smartwatch with most tracker and smartwatch features, we think Fitbit is a good option. An Apple Watch is tempting but very costly.

Is Fitbit charger fast?

Yes, most Fitbit chargers are very fast to charge your trackers and watches. They are also easy to use. However, we would welcome improvement in the design of some chargers.

How accurate are Fitbits compared to other fitness trackers?

A study by the University of Pittsburgh found that Fitbits were only moderately accurate at tracking steps, distance, and calories burned. The study also found that Fitbits were less accurate when tracking activities such as cycling and running. Other fitness trackers, such as the Jawbone UP3 and the Microsoft Band, were found to be more accurate than the Fitbit.

Many trackers and watches are for people with medium to big wrists. It can be a pain to find bands and watches for small wrists. Fitbit offers some stylish trackers and watches for small wrists at excellent prices. We reviewed ten products in this article, but the one that we liked best is Fitbit Inspire 2. It has a bright screen, fitness tracking features, and long battery life. Its pricing is also reasonable, making it an excellent overall option.
