(Pocket-lint) - The Fitbit Ionic was Fitbit's first proper fitness smartwatch and it's been a popular model, offering a full range of tracking paired with smartwatch functions. 

It's also now getting a big discount thanks to a week-long sale on Fitbit devices on Amazon UK. That means you can get the Fitbit Ionic for £178.99, a saving of £71 over the regular price.

The Fitbit Ionic offers heart rate monitoring and GPS route tracking, giving you plenty of information about your activities, meaning you can track you run, ride or swim and get a good picture of your workout. 

That's on top of the other functions that Fitbit is well known for, including the likes of step tracking and active minute, all rolled together in the Fitbit app, which is one of the most user-friendly apps you'll find on a fitness watch. It will also monitor your sleep.

There's also support for music so you can connect to Bluetooth headphones and sync up to 300 tracks from your phone along with support for Fitbit Pay, which will allow you to make contactless payments from your wrist.
