In brief: Depends

This all depends on what you're looking for. A fit bit is no substitute for a high quality event monitor as it lacks the ability to correlate specific rhythms with your symptoms, and provide high fidelity recordings.
If all you're looking for start rate trends, perhaps the fit bit may be appropriate.
