Fitness trackers-which one to get

It seems like everyone is making fitness trackers.  There is Nike, UP, FitBit, MisFit….etc just to name a few.  If you haven’t bought a fitness tracker yet or maybe you are looking to upgrade here is a run down of the most popular fitness trackers.

1.  Figure out what you want from the fitness tracker.  Do you want something the tracks your heart rate, do you want something that you can wear swimming, do you want something that has GPS on it, do you want something that tracks your steps.

2.  Figure out how much you are willing to pay.  You can find fitness trackers from $50.00-300.00+

Once you have figured out what you want to use the fitness tracker for and your price range, here is a run-down of some of the most popular ones:

Jawbone UP24-Tracks your steps and your sleep cycles.  It is sleek and comfortable to wear.  Downside-it does not have a display so you have to sync it to your phone to look at the readout.

FitBit-FitBits have a wide range to choose from.  The newest and most popular is the FitBit Charge HR.  It comes with a heart rate monitor (no chest strap needed).  It tracks, activity, sleep, steps, and calories burned.  Downside-not waterproof and does not have any smart watch functionality beyond caller ID.

Garmin Vivosmart-this fitness tracker counts steps, measures sleep, reminds you to move, it’s waterproof and it sends you notifications.
