Nowadays, people are becoming more health-conscious and they keep track of their daily activities using a fitness band or smart band. It is a good way of spotting health-related issues and also maintaining fitness levels. It can be used to measure step counts, heart rate, sleep pattern, running distance, etc. The data can be used to decide the ups and downs in health and physical body level.
1. Useful for tracking daily activities.

3. Low priced compared to a smartwatch.
1. As they focused on fitness-related parameters, other functions like notification are restricted.

The difference between the two is one helps you communicate and keeps you updated while other tracks how you are maintaining your health. A smartwatch is a multipurpose device while fitness bands are specially used for health and fitness. Smartwatch can play a song and keep us relaxed while a fitness band tracks our relaxation. There are some smartwatches that have features of fitness band also like heart rate monitoring, sleep control, etc. while fitness bands also have some features of smartwatch-like they can show notification, alert you about a call, etc.
In the end, both have their pros and cons and it all depends on your use, if you want a smartphone on your wrist then smartwatches are best while if you are health-conscious then the fitness band is the best option.
