Fitbit has recently released their new trackers, the Fitbit Sense and the Apple Watch Series 6. Both devices are the same size, have the same battery and connectivity, and both work with the corporate health service, Fitbit Coach. However, there are some differences that sets these two trackers apart.

The latest Fitbit devices are the Fitbit Charge 2 and the Fitbit Flex 2, both of which are fitness trackers that make a great pair with the latest Apple Watch. The Charge 2 features a more premium design and a bigger screen than the Flex 2, but they share a lot of the same technology, such as the optical heart rate sensor and motion tracking. We decided to compare the running dynamics of the three devices, so they can be an in-depth comparison for anyone who’s thinking about making the switch to a smartwatch.

Not sure which is better to buy – Fitbit Sense or Apple Watch 6? Not only you, but also 17,135 BinDaily readers asked our team for a comparative analysis of the two watches. After spending 81 hours testing the different features and functions, we present a detailed blog post covering all the differences. New Apple Watch Series 6 (GPS, 40mm) – Grey aluminum case with black sport band Fitbit Sense Advanced smartwatch with tools for heart health, stress management and skin temperature monitoring, carbon/graphite, one size (includes S and L bands). New Apple Watch Series 6 (GPS, 40mm) – Grey aluminum case with black sport band word-image-6692 Fitbit Sense Advanced smartwatch with tools for heart health, stress management and skin temperature monitoring, carbon/graphite, one size (includes S and L bands). word-image-6693 Both the Fitbit Sense and the Apple Watch Series 6 are ideal for keeping track of your health and come with numerous features to keep track of your fitness. These devices are also equipped with advanced features like ECG and activity tracking, making them the ideal companion for health and fitness. One of the biggest problems with the Apple Watch is that it’s not compatible with Android phones. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can’t use it to its full potential. So, if you have an Android phone, you should consider purchasing a Fitbit Sense since it connects to your device. However, if you are an iPhone user, both watch models will be compatible. The Apple Watch Series 6 has many of the features you usually look for. With advanced features such as EKG, blood oxygen monitoring and activity measurement, the Apple Watch is a truly useful companion and a true fashion statement. On the other hand, the Fitbit Sense is favored by many health-conscious users. Even many iOS users choose Fitbit over the Apple Watch because of the number of health and fitness tracking features they have introduced over the years. Fitbit Sense, the company’s first button-less smartwatch, is the best it’s ever done. Even if it’s inferior to the Apple Watch Series 6 in some areas, the Fitbit Sense could be an attractive choice. Do you know how hard it can be to choose between two very good smartwatch health companions? If you’re reading this, you’re going through this crisis right now, and I can’t blame you. Neither is cheap, and you don’t want to make a mistake in your choice. That’s why I published this detailed comparison, to clarify all the complicated and confusing issues. In this article, I will make a direct comparison, taking into account all the important points, such as… B. the health and fitness tracking features available, the technology behind them, the growing ecosystems, etc. That way, you’ll know exactly which smartwatch fits your specific needs perfectly. For a first thought, iPhone users may need to integrate with Apple’s ecosystem to get everything to sync seamlessly. However, if you want the most health tracking features, with features from the Fitbit community and other perks that Apple doesn’t offer, consider Sense. Apple and Fitbit’s ecosystems are very different, and you might prefer one over the other. This has all been discussed at length here, so read on.

Fitbit Sense vs. Apple Watch 6: Side-by-side equation

Needless to say, choosing between the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Sense won’t be an easy decision. You need to consider all possible factors, and this way you can ensure that you end up buying the right smartwatch. As I mentioned earlier, I did a very detailed comparison to make sense of all this. However, if you want to compare all the specifications and features side by side, take a look at the table below:

Design and construction

The design of the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Sense are quite different. It has a rectangular design with rounded corners, while the Fitbit Sense has a square design with rounded corners. Both devices are unique in their own way, but the black bezels around the screen are slightly thinner on the Apple Watch. The quality of implementation also varies. The Apple Watch Series 6 has an aluminum body in the base version and ion-X glass on top. It is also available in high quality options, namely stainless steel and titanium with sapphire coating. The Fitbit Sense, on the other hand, has an aluminum body with a stainless steel frame around the screen. It also doesn’t have buttons, it uses sensors, but the Apple Watch has a watch face that it calls the Digital Crown. Customization options for the Apple Watch Series 6 are more varied, with two case sizes – 40mm and 44mm – and several strap options to choose from. Apple offers a range of silicone, nylon, fiber, leather and metal bands, and allows you to customize your watch directly in the online store. The Fitbit Sense only comes in one size with a small and large wristband, but you can buy other sizes from Fitbit’s online stores. The choice of models is slightly more limited and the materials used for the rings are silicone, recycled plastic fibre and Horween leather. This part of the design and installation will ultimately depend on your personal preferences. Apple, on the other hand, has a more diverse selection of watch materials and bands. The bands are also backwards compatible with older Apple Watches, so if you have one. Fitbit wristbands are also interesting, but their selection is relatively limited, and they’re only compatible with the new Fitbit Versa 3 model.

The situation of the screens is not clear. Both smartwatches use an OLED screen, with Apple using the new OLED LTPO technology and Fitbit Sense using a more traditional OLED panel. Fitbit didn’t mention any other display specifications on their website, so I can’t confirm those here. Apple mentions that the panels have a brightness of 1,000 nits, which is exactly the same as the Watch Series 5, but it also claims that the new Series 6 panels are twice as bright when the Always-on mode is used, which offers better outdoor visibility. As we mentioned earlier, Apple is selling the Watch Series 6 in two sizes, which means two screen sizes. For example, the 1.57 inch (40 mm) model has a resolution of 394×324 pixels, while the 1.78 inch (44 mm) model has 448×368 pixels. For example, the Fitbit Sense model only has a 1.59-inch screen (although in reality the screen may be slightly smaller), and there was no mention of resolution. However, both smartwatches have an always-on screen. You can also create your own custom watch faces on the Apple Watch Series 6 or use one of the default options. For Fitbit, customization is not an option, but they do mention that they have hundreds of standard watch faces, 5 of which you can save locally on your watch.

It’s no secret that Apple and Fitbit have invested the most in health and fitness. So it’s clear that both the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Sense excel at health and fitness, and in this area this watch is probably the best you’ll find on the market today. Apple has already introduced an ECG sensor in the 5 series and added a blood oxygen sensor in the 6 series. Something Fitbit has used in its watches for generations. However, the Apple Watch has a fall detection feature that also sends an SOS signal to your selected contacts if you fall due to a medical emergency. Apple has also introduced hand washing detection, which automatically activates a 20-second timer when it detects you’re washing your hands. Fitbit Sense doesn’t detect falls or hand washing, but it does have two additional features that Apple doesn’t have. Fitbit has integrated an electrodermal activity sensor (EDA) for stress management, which is making its first appearance in the smartwatch. The Sense is also equipped with a body temperature sensor, which can be very useful because it eliminates the need to use a traditional thermometer while wearing the watch. Both watches offer all the basic functions one would expect: Heart rate measurement, sleep monitoring, step counting, distance measurement, calorie measurement, swim monitoring and more. Despite its similarities, the Fitbit Sense beats the Apple Watch Series 6 with its stress management and body temperature tracking features.

Operating system and interface

OS WatchOS 7 Fitbit OS

I don’t need to stress that part. WatchOS is one of the main reasons why Apple dominates the entire smartwatch industry. WatchOS 7 makes this experience even better. Fitbit’s own operating system offers many of the same options and a number of apps that can be installed on the watch, but it doesn’t come close to catching up with Apple. With watchOS 7, Apple has delivered new and improved features for blood oxygen monitoring, ECG, sleep tracking, daily workouts and more. Even custom dials are more versatile and can include all the statistics you need. You can even share these watch faces with other Apple Watch users with watchOS 7. Fitbit offers apps, but you can’t use custom watch faces and have to make do with standard watch faces. There are over a hundred standard watch faces, but only 5 can be stored in Sense at a time. The user interface is not as fast and fluid, due to less powerful hardware than the 6 series. Voice assistants are a different story. Fitbit lets you choose the default voice assistant: Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. They will give you a much better experience than Siri on the Apple Watch. Siri has gotten better, but it still doesn’t compare to Google Assistant. The Watch app (formerly known as the Apple Watch) for the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit app for the Sense 3 are excellent companion apps. You can track all your activities, set goals and much more. Of course, Fitbit offers more details if you sign up for a premium subscription. You can also sign up for Apple’s Fitness+ plan or Fitbit’s Premium plan, which cost the same: $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year. What a coincidence, huh? However, Fitbit does not provide you with all of your health information until you enroll in the Premium program. Fortunately, Sense gets you a free premium version for 6 months, and Apple Fitness+ gets you a free trial for 3 months with every Apple Watch purchase.

Equipment and performances

 

  Apple Watch Series 6 Fitbit Sense
SOC Apple S6 N/A
RAM 1 GB N/A
Internal memory 32GB N/A

Let’s get one thing straight: Fitbit does not mention what hardware it uses. So first we’ll talk about the Apple Watch’s hardware, then we’ll try to see how Fitbit fares. We’re done here, let’s start with the hardware department. The Apple Watch Series 6 uses Apple’s latest and greatest S6 SOC. This is a significant improvement over last year’s S5 in terms of performance and energy efficiency. It also has 1GB of RAM to supplement that power, and 32GB of internal storage to store apps, watch interfaces, and even music if you want. It also has a W3 chip for wireless communication and a U1 chip for spatial perception. The Fitbit Sense is not as fast as the Watch Series 6. It’s even slower than many other popular smartwatches, like Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watch 3. So it’s safe to say that the Fitbit Sense’s hardware isn’t very powerful. So, in terms of performance, Apple has won a solid victory. As I mentioned earlier, the Fitbit Sense has no buttons. Fitbit replaced them with sensors. You play with your finger on the touch surface on the side and it works exactly as you expect from the keys. The watch face, also known as the digital crown, on the Apple Watch is touch-sensitive, and while you’ll primarily use it as a home button, it also works in several other scenarios. It is up to you to decide whether you want a transducer or a digital crown.

Battery life

Battery life is also totally different between the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Sense. The Apple Watch Series 6 can consume a lot of battery power, especially when using the LTE network. The Fitbit Sense, on the other hand, only has GPS and limited functionality, but offers better battery life. The Apple Watch Series 6 lasts about 18 hours a day in an average usage scenario, which can drop to about 14 hours if you use the Family setting. LTE talk time is about 1.5 hours and streaming audio (synced to Earpods) slurps the battery in about 7 hours. When you exercise, the battery lasts up to 10 hours indoors and up to 6 hours outdoors (GPS), which can drop to 5 hours if you turn on LTE.

  Apple Watch Series 6
Daily assessment Until 6 p.m.
With family unit Until 2:00.
Talk time (LTE) Up to 1.5 hours
Audio playback Up to 10 hours (local) or 7 hours (streaming)
Indoor training Up to 10 hours
Extracurricular education Up to 6 hours (GPS) or 5 hours (GPS+LTE)
0%-80% In about 1 hour
0%-100% About an hour and a half.

In our tests, the battery lasted about 6 days on a single charge. In real life, however, you’ll see a much greater range if you use your smartwatch actively enough. Fitbit also claims that it charges from 0 to 80 percent in just under 40 minutes, which is pretty impressive.

  Apple Watch Series 6
Total assets More than 6 days on a single full charge
0%-80% In about 40 minutes.
Daily allowances reported In about 12 minutes.

The Apple Watch Series 6, on the other hand, takes about 1 hour to charge from 0 to 80 percent, and about 1.5 hours to charge 100 percent. It also supports fast charging, which isn’t much of a stretch. Overall, Fitbit takes the cake for best battery life with its less powerful hardware and less sophisticated ecosystem. That said, I’m willing to accept a quick performance from Apple any day. But your choices may differ, and Fitbit may be just what you need.

Connection options

 

  Apple Watch Series 6 Fitbit Sense
Navigation GPS/GNSS GPS+GLONASS
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz) 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz)
Bluetooth Available, v5.0 Available, v5.0
Cellular LTE and UMTS (in the cellular model) Not Supported

Let’s talk about connectivity. The basic version of the Apple Watch Series 6 has GPS/GNSS for navigation, while the Fitbit Sense has GPS+GLONASS. So the navigation capabilities of these watches are very similar, they are both not very functional when it comes to Google Maps, but they have their own navigation system. However, it is not a stand-alone cellular communication. You can purchase a GPS+Cellular model for the Apple Watch Series 6 with LTE and UMTS support via eSim. Fitbit Sense is only available in the version with GPS. So if you need cellular connectivity, you’ll have to buy an Apple Watch. If you left your phone at home and only want to make calls with your Fitbit, you’re out of luck. Both watch models are also equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 801.11 b/g/n. It’s worth noting that the Fitbit only supports the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band, while the Apple Watch supports both bands: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 5 GHz band of 802.11n is slower than 802.11ac, but by enabling it, Apple made sure you could connect to a 5 GHz network if you needed to.

Additional functions

Apple Watch Series 6

Digital crown: Apple calls its watch face the digital crown, and it has two very important functions. First, it acts as a home button for your watch. So if you need to go back from an application you’re using on the watch, you can just touch the digital crown. Then you can also use a digital corona to check your ECG. You have to hold your finger on it for 30 seconds, then it makes an ECG chart for you. In this scenario, the digital head and downstream transducer work together to obtain a correct ECG reading. Custom dials: Apple lets you customize your own watch faces. So you can combine statistics and other information that is important to you, and always wear it on your wrist. You can even share these watch faces with other Apple Watch users.

Fitbit Sense

Stress management : Fitbit is the only brand dedicated to stress management with an electrodermal activity sensor (AED) on a smartwatch. It was introduced with Sense as the world’s first EDA on a smartwatch, so none of its competitors, not even Apple, has this feature yet. It works like this: You cover the watch with your other hand and have to wait for a while while the EDA sensor and the app analyze all the changes on your skin to determine the stress level or its evolution over time. Reportedly, this system is quite accurate, which is impressive. Fitbit Community features: Another reason the Fitbit Sense stands out from other devices is its public feature. It’s a great way to stay connected to the local Fitbit community around you. Users who join the Fitbit community in the Fitbit app can see how other users in their area are meeting their health goals (if they’ve been added as a friend), and challenge each other. You can also keep up to date with local events or the latest fitness news.

Warranty

Both the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Sense come with a one-year limited warranty. The Apple Watch has an international warranty, while the Fitbit has a domestic warranty. At least that’s what I can gather from their announcement, since they don’t mention the international warranty anywhere. This means that if you travel a lot for work or go on vacation to other countries, you are safe with your Apple Watch because it can be repaired for free if needed. For accidental damage, both companies have their own coverage plans. You need to buy them separately from the respective online stores.

  • At Apple, it’s called AppleCare+.
  • At Fitbit, it’s called the Fitbit Protection Plan (FPP).

Apple Watch 6: Pros and cons

  • Optional high-end cases and a choice of watch bands.
  • The mobile model costs $100 more
  • Call battery life is shorter than expected
  • Lack of an integrated stress management mechanism.
  • Does not support Android

Fitbit Sense: Pros and cons

  • Stress management with the EDA sensor – a novelty for a smartwatch
  • Possibility to measure the skin temperature
  • The Fitbit community helps you connect, measure or communicate with other local Fitbit users.
  • The voice assistant Amazon Alexa is better than Siri in most cases.
  • Support for Android and iOS
  • Only standard dials are available
  • The device works slower
  • Lack of cellular connectivity
  • Only available in one size

Cost and price

When we talk about value, it means different things to different users. But the Fitbit Sense is actually cheaper than the Apple Watch Series 6. However, this applies to the GPS variant. Fitbit doesn’t offer a model with a cellular connection, so the Watch Series 6 is your only option for that. The base 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 costs $399 for the GPS variant, and you’ll have to pay $499 for the GPS+Cellular model. For the 44mm variants you pay $30 extra. If you want a stainless steel case, it starts at $699 and a titanium case starts at $799. These options are only available with a GPS+mobile configuration, which is a good thing. Moreover, the price increases when you combine them with higher quality tapes. The rings range in price from $49 to $449, from the basic option to the highest end. The Fitbit Sense is only available in one size and case and costs $329. If you want something other than the included tires, you’ll have to pay between $29.95 and $49.95. Fitbit’s prices seem more reasonable than Apple’s, but its selection is much larger than Fitbit’s.

Who should buy what?

Of course, if you’ve come this far, you’ll have an idea of which device will best manage your daily life. Some of you will find the Apple Watch more appealing, while others will lean more towards the Fitbit. However, for your convenience, I’ve included a list of users who qualify for both smartwatches below. → People who work in the iOS ecosystem will find the Apple Watch Series 6 more useful. → Android smartphone users who own Google Pixel, Motorola, LG, OnePlus, Samsung, Huawei, ASUS, etc. may want to consider buying Fitbit Sense, as the Apple Watch 6 will not work with their phones. → Users who have a lot of stress will like the Fitbit Sense better because it has an EDA sensor. → Users who need mobile connectivity should buy the Apple Watch Series 6. → For people who need an EKG or blood oxygen monitoring, you can choose one of these two times. However, Dexcom G6 users should consider purchasing an Apple Watch 6 for better compatibility. → Users on a tight budget would be better off opting for the Fitbit Sense. If you want an Apple Watch with the features of the Watch 6 and a lower price, consider a Watch SE (read my comparison). → Both watch models track health and fitness very well, so they are both equally suitable. Certain categories of potential users have been identified in the above. If you are considering buying this smartwatch, you should put yourself in one of the categories.

frequently asked questions

Which smartwatch ecosystem is relatively better? Both Apple and Fitbit have excellent ecosystems with many additional features and options. However, since Apple offers seamless integration with its iPhones and the inclusion of LTE technology just fits into that, Apple has a big advantage in this area. What health data am I missing if I don’t subscribe to a Fitbit Premium subscription? Without a premium you will not have access to detailed, personalised data on SpO2, respiratory rate, heart rate variability, etc. You also won’t get access to Fitbit’s personalized coaching sessions, which only last for 7 days during the trial period. Do blood oxygen sensors work on smartwatches? They are not as accurate as a full-fledged pulse oximeter. These two smartwatches project a light onto your wrist and read a reflection to determine your blood oxygen level. In most cases this will result in slightly lower readings. Therefore, you need to place the sensor on your finger if you want to get an approximation of the actual level.

Pronunciation

Okay, let’s wrap this up. Of course, if you’re still reading, you probably already have a favorite. But I have yet to draw a final conclusion, and rather than do so in a big, awkward jumble, let’s do it point by point. See the list below:

  • When it comes to monitoring health and fitness, both of these smartwatches do a phenomenal job, and you won’t be disappointed with either one.
  • The Fitbit Sense’s EDA sensor is very good at detecting stress levels, and there’s nothing comparable on the market today.
  • The hardware on the Apple Watch Series 6 is faster and more powerful.
  • The battery life of the Fitbit Sense is actually better.
  • Apple’s digital crown and Fitbit’s touch element are unique in their own way and depend on your preferences.
  • The Apple Watch Series 6 doesn’t support Android, so if you have an Android smartphone, you’ll need to buy a Fitbit Sense.

The Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Sense are both great smartwatches, and I just can’t decide between one of them. Ultimately, it depends on your personal preferences. Are you deeply immersed in the Apple ecosystem, or want to take advantage of Fitbit’s community features? Do you want a device that monitors stress or would you prefer LTE connectivity in your smartwatch? Once you have determined the answers, you can proceed with the purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit sense?

The Apple Watch and Fitbit are two different products with very similar goals – to help you stay active and track your fitness. But beyond that, they have very different philosophies and features. The Apple Watch is aimed at fitness enthusiasts, while the Fitbit is geared more toward everyday users. Since the Apple Watch’s launch last September, there have been rumors and reports of an Apple Watch with a built-in heart-rate monitor. It appears, however, that the addition will not be appearing in the Series 2. Rather, it will be bundled with the Apple Watch 3, scheduled for the fall of this year.

Is fitbit more accurate than Apple Watch?

Smartwatches are all the rage these days, and the Apple Watch and Fitbit both have their own followers and manufacturers. Fitbit, the leader in fitness trackers, is facing fierce competition from Apple, which introduced its second generation smartwatch last year. The Apple Watch Series 6 comes with a sleeker design and a better display than its predecessor, as well as a faster processor and a series of new features. Does the new Apple Watch still have what it takes to compete with Fitbit? Oh, Fitbit, where have you been all my life? And now Apple, where have you been all my life? Fitbit has always been my pick for the best fitness tracker (I’ve used the Fitbit Flex for 8 years), but a recent purchase of an Apple Watch Series 6 forced me to venture into the world of smartwatches. I have to say, the Apple Watch Series 6 seems very similar to the Fitbit Ionic, but offers the added benefit of using your own watch face (versus Fitbit’s semi-custom watch faces).

Is the Apple Watch Series 6 waterproof?

On the surface, the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Fitbit Alta look wildly different. But under the hood, they’re both medical grade fitness trackers, the only difference being the types of sensors they use. The Series 6 is compatible with the Series 1 and 2 bands, which are both water-resistant up to 50 meters. However, the Series 6 also comes with a new waterproof casing called the Apple Watch Series 6 GPS, which is an upgrade from the Series 5, which was only waterproof to 50 meters. In this post, you’ll learn the differences between the Series 6 and Series 1, and you’ll be able to decide which one is right for you – whether you’re a swimmer, a runner, or someone who uses Since the Apple Watch Series 6 was announced in September, questions have been raised about whether the new devices can be waterproof (or water resistant). Some people are concerned about the display on the new model, because it’s covered in sapphire, so it might not be as resistant to scratches as the aluminum covers of previous models. But the biggest factor some people worry about is the Apple Watch Series 6’s waterproofing, because its new design has a larger screen, which could make the watch more vulnerable to water damage.
