The details of health related data gathered by the Sense is really good, compared to many other watches out there. If you are health conscious and care less about third party apps and notifications but prefer to focus on health, heart, sleep, then this is the watch for you. I compared the Fitbit Sense with my wife's Apple Watch and I have to admit, the level of data & details provided by the Sense is unmatched. The Apple Watch really lacks behind in regards of data and detail level. My only issue with the Sense is that it has thick bezels around the display, it's too "thick" (probably because of the health related hardware) and lacks blood pressure.

Pros

  • Superb health features
  • Gorgeous display
  • Automatic Activity Recognition
  • Snore & Noise Detect in db.
  • Exceptional level of data and details

Cons

  • Thick Bezels around the watch
  • Fitbit app could be improved
  • Lacks Blood Pressure Function
  • Temperature is only measured during sleep
  • To thick and bulgy

Most of the apps are outdated, even with the newest models

Pros

  • Fast charge
  • Resistant
  • Very detailed data analysis
  • Smart alarms to wake up in a non deep sleep phase

Cons

  • It's hard to change between screens
  • Apps are outdated and the good stuff is part of the premium service (they removed the free Fitbit Coach)
  • Check payment options via NFC in your country before purchasing
  • The assistant won't hear you most of the time
  • Button sensibility and location is not that smart

Design

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
Gorilla Glass is one of the most popular brands of chemically strengthened glass, manufactured by Corning. Several versions have been developed, the newer ones being more durable and providing better damage resistance.
