Why are Fitbit and Strava different?
Fitbit and Strava are two of the most popular fitness trackers on the market. Fitbit is known for its simple design and portable capabilities, while Strava offers a more comprehensive tracking experience that includes mapping and statistics.
Additionally, both devices offer social features so you can compare your progress with friends or other enthusiasts.
Fitbit is generally recommended over Strava when it comes to functionality because it’s easier to use and better suited for users who want quick access to their exercise data. However, if ease of use isn’t an important factor for you then Strava may be a better choice due to its expansive feature set.

Which Fitbit works with Strava?

Why do Fitbits only last a year?
Most Fitbits only last for a year because the battery eventually wears out and needs to be replaced. This means that you’ll need to replace your tracker every 12 months.
