We check out the 7 best fitness trackers to keep you on top of your game!  

Fitbit Charge 3

Fitbit Charge 3

Fitbit has become the go-to manufacturer for fitness trackers and it’s not hard to see why. The Charge 2 device was fantastic and now with the third iteration, the company has refined its flagship tracker. With a more lightweight design and a sleeker overall look, and a bigger and clearer display than its rivals, the Fitbit Charge 3 offers large amounts of insight into your overall health. Sadly it’s still a black and white screen and there is no sign of the much-requested onboard GPS, but as before syncing up to your phone solves that conundrum. If you enjoy the whole Fitbit app and experience and would also like access to notifications and Fitbit’s fantastic sleep tracking, you’ll want to opt for this as it’s one of the company’s best trackers ever.

Garmin Vivosmart 4

Garmin has offered some impressive trackers over the years, especially catering to the more serious athletes and fitness fanatics. The Garmin Vivosmart 4, however, is aimed at your more casual fitness fan who wants to track their fitness levels but also wants an attractive band around their wrists. This does not mean the Vivosmart 4 is light on features however, it has a much bigger screen than previous iterations and a week-long battery life. There’s also an innovative feature called body battery that helps you learn when exactly is the best time for you to exercise depending on how much energy you have. This is great for those who are just as interested in their recovery and general wellbeing as they are clocking up the miles. 

Huawei Band 3 Pro

Not everyone can afford to spend a small fortune on a fitness tracker and that’s where the Huawei band 3 Pro steps in. It offers both style and substance at a very attractive wallet-friendly budget. The Band 3 Pro comes with GPS onboard, it has a water-resistant design as well as a 0.95-inch color screen to display all of your stats on your wrist. Packed with features like a precise heart rate monitor and activity tracking, the Band 3 Pro is a great little device for newbies to the fitness tracking world as well as anyone looking for an affordable entry-level device.

Honor Band 4

Another budget-friendly device, the Honor Band 4 is considerably cheaper than most devices on the market and it’ll offer good tracking for the casual runner plus it comes with a stunning color OLED display. As lovely as the display is, it does come on a rather small screen, so people looking for an easy to read display might be disappointed. It also lacks any form of GPS which might put some people off. However that is not the point of the Honor Band 4 device, instead, they’ve focused on offering a small yet affordable package with all the fitness essentials and at a very competitive price.

Amazfit Bip

The biggest difference with the Amazfit Bip, compared to other trackers on this list, is its looks. It’s definitely inspired by the Apple Watch look and stands out more as a smartwatch than a fitness tracker. Yet don’t let its looks fool you, there is a feature-packed fitness tracker hidden behind its smartwatch appearance. It offers features like built-in GPS, an accurate heart rate tracker, multi-sport tracking, sleep tracking, and a very impressive battery life. It’s a lightweight device that offers both a reflective always-on color touch display and the usual smartwatch features that one would expect from a fitness tracker. If you’re in the market for a smartwatch that doubles up as a feature-filled fitness tracker then the Amazfit Bip might just be for.

Moov Now

Unlike other trackers on this list, the Moov Now is a slightly older device that is very limited on features, yet it’s still seen by many as the perfect everyday tracking companion. It’s incredibly cheap when compared to the other trackers and it has an unbelievable six-month battery life. Of course, the Moov Now does not have a screen, nor does it have heart tracking, but it does include step, boxing, and rep-based training as well as a swimming mode on top of run coaching and sleep monitoring features. In comparison to other devices, this one might be light on features, but if you prefer your tracker to be simple, to the point, and cost-effective, then the Moov Now is a very good option to consider.

Samsung Galaxy Fit e

Arguably one of the best low-priced devices on the market, Samsung’s Galaxy Fit e devices have a very slick looking design, a week-long battery and they can track a variety of activities from swimming to cycling. The Fit e also features a heart rate monitor. The only drawback is that there’s no GPS on this tracker and it only comes with a black and white display. Naturally, if you own a Samsung smartphone or other android device, the Galaxy Fit e syncs perfectly with your phone and comes with some interesting app choices. With a solid set of features, a budget-friendly price and an attractive design, this device from the South Korean giants is without-a-doubt a solid choice in the competitive fitness tracking market.
