Where are the differences?

Let's have a closer look by comparing the differences between the two Wearable Inspire 2* and Inspire HR* made by Fitbit.

Release Date

Both products were made in two consecutive years. The Fitbit Inspire 2 was first released in 2020. Consequently, the Fitbit Inspire HR from 2019 is older.

Waterproof

Both Wearable can be used under water in depths of up to 50 m. The two devices can even track and record your swimming lanes.

Battery

The Fitbit Inspire 2 sports a longer battery runtime with 10 days. the Fitbit Inspire HR battery lasts merely for 5 days. Both devices take 2,0 hours to be fully charged.

GPS

None of the two devices, either the Fitbit Inspire 2, or the Fitbit Inspire HR have integrated GPS. With both Wearable, you have the possibility to use Connected GPS. The devices will take the GPS data from your smartphone. The downside to this can be signal issues and having to carry your smartphone with you.

Heart Rate Monitor

A fitness watch without a heart rate monitor is basically useless and not advisable to buy. That's because your heart rate is one of the key elements of different calculations. For example, many devices without a heart rate monitor claim to count your calories burned too. That number will hardly be right without having access to your heart rate.

Comparing the Fitbit Inspire 2 and the Fitbit Inspire HR, both devices offer the heart rate monitor function and score in our books. On top of that, both will monitor your heart rate 24/7. Some devices only do that when you press a button, which is practically speaking rather useless.

Measured values

None of the two devices can track and record the amount of floors you've walked.

Both Wearable offer you the possibility to record your sleep time. On top of that, they also allow you to do a sleep analysis.

The Fitbit Inspire 2 stores the recorded data up to 7 days.

Bracelet

Being able to change your fitness watch band is a great advantage. You'll only have to worry about the color of the device itself, and not the color or material of its accompanying watch band. For pretty much every device, you can get cheap watch bands that will fit your device. You can make use of this advantage with both devices of this comparison.

Smarct functions

Getting call, text, or other notifications is a feature that both tools have. Often times, this feature is only possible with an Android device. iOS user can be left behind on this. Sending QuickReplies is not an option for either one of the two devices.

The interface, or the dial of your watch, can be changed with both, the Fitbit Inspire 2 , and the Fitbit Inspire HR.

Contactless payment

Contactless payment is a highly useful and more in demand than ever technology. Many Wearable already offer it. Being able to do this from your wrist is even more convenient than using your smartphone or a credit card. Unfortunately, none of the two devices of this comparison have this technology. Both products use -.
