The Fitbit Charge 2 is probably the best fitness tracker in the market today, which at the moment is balancing the ease of use with all additional features and the price as well. The Fitbit Charge 2 has replaced the company’s Charge HR. It takes the best features out of the outgoing model and combines it all to bring forth something totally astonishing that actually works like you would want it to.
The Charge 2 features the continuous heartrate monitor, the VO2 Max, the Guided Breathing as well as connected GPS system. The Fitbit Charge 2 takes on the new design element which is found on the Fitbit Alta and Alta HR, which includes the interchangeable straps, a brightly informative OLED display and a solid built quality.
For someone looking to invest in a well-designed, good looking, and functional activity tracker, the Fitbit Charge 2 here takes charge of everything for you.
The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ packs quite a punch for something so tiny and good looking. It packs a lot of functionality into a tiny body that is somewhat larger than a wristwatch. Although it isn’t as good looking as the Fitbit Charge 2, the features of this device are what set it apart with the GPS monitoring and heart rate sensor on board.
The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is the ideal fitness tracker for the daily man who go out for daily runs as well as keep a track of their runs and walk in vivid detail. But these people definitely don’t want to go all the way and begin wearing a running watch the entire time.
The Fitbit Alta HR is the slim and stylish device from Fitbit that brings heartrate tracking to the domain of activity trackers. This activity tracker also has a younger sibling that has been listed further down this list. Although the Fitbit Alta is a fabulous device, it misses out on heartrate monitoring feature primarily.
Coming to the Alta HR, the device still misses out on the waterproofing, elevation data or the GPS connectivity. The Alta HR is not actively as feature rich as the Charge 2 but, it makes up for such shortcomings with its slim design, and essentially a good activity tracker for everyday purpose with good heartrate tracking and normal ever day activity tracking monitor. The sleep tracking is also pretty awesome on this on and it comes with the interchangeable straps so one can switch out straps for a smarter look and feel.
The Withings Activite Steel HR is a beautifully crafted device that does a great job of delivering the looks and the functions in one single package. The Steel HR offers a classic design with premium material placement which puts it a world apart from the regular activity trackers that are generally made up of rubber and steel.
The heart rate tracking on this one is pretty good, as is the sleep tracking function. Needless to say, that the battery life is just phenomenal. Although the design and the form factor of the device isn’t as subtle as the likes of the Fitbit Alta or Charge, this one comes with waterproofing and swim tracking. The Steel HR lacks behind in the area of deep sleep tracking when compared to the Alta HR which does a phenomenal job in this area. This one is for the enthusiasts who are looking for a bit of the classic appeal cloaking the modern technology under its skin.
The Fitbit Flex 2 is a rather fascinating and effective activity tracker with a design that stands out against its predecessor, which means that it is less rubber and more of an interchangeable accessory compatible device. The two-pin clasps on this one ensures that it has a solid and comfortable fit. The basic smartphone notifications on this device are great and the waterproofing is just awesome.
This pretty device is simple stylish and reeks a feel of sophistication. Although, this device is not for people who are looking for hardcore data of sleep patterns and other things like GPS tracking, it actually is a great device for people who are after basic activity tracking.
The Fitbit Ionic brings with it a solid build, a lightweight deign and a beautiful screen while adding the premium features like GPS tracking and dedicated swim functionality which was lacking in the earlier Fitbit Blaze. This device also comes with a new and improved heartrate monitor, smarter notifications, future payment capabilities that the Fitbit users will come to make use of, and love, in the near future.
This device however doesn’t come cheap. Priced at around $299, this device would not fail to annoy you a bit. That is owing to the fact that it misses out on a few of the advanced smartwatch features. This device however has ever been successful in bridging the gap between a fitness tracker and a smartwatch. So, if anyone is looking for a device that has the best of both worlds; then this is the one for you.
This one incidentally is a device for the people who want technology to infiltrate their lives in a more subtle manner, rather than shouting it out at every juncture in a very attention seeking manner. This activity tracker carries out its duty in a much understated manner and the best part is that, it’s a looker. The Garmin devices don’t actually want you to be wearing a lump on your wrist, while encouraging you to make the basic fitness goals.
Even when this device is compared to the other simplistic analogue activity trackers out there in the market, the Vivomore has a league of its own when it comes to the design element. Its rather a stunning looking device that gives the feel of carrying something unusually stuffed with technology, yet, so simple. With fully functional heartrate monitor and a robust companion app backing it up, this could well be the ultimate offering in its league.
The Samsung Gear Fit 2 features an excellent GPS module and a built-in heart rate monitor, along with a beautiful large screen that nice and accurately responsive.
This device is backed by technological advancements like core tracking skills and relayed data, but sadly the companion app by Samsung is not as good as the likes of the one released by Fitbit hence, it might not be just the perfect device which perfectionists are seeking out. Not to mention that the battery life on this device is a wee bit on the downside when compared to the latest additions to the sigma of the latest fitness trackers of 2018. But still, it would be a crime to completely deny the fact this the Samsung Gear Fit 2 is evidently one of most dearly loved fitness trackers out there, up for grabs.
This particular device of an activity tracker is Swiss made. Also, this iteration is the most expensive edition of all the Activtie’s out there, but the price has dropped from the time when it was initially launched. This activity tracker features a beautiful design housed in a fantastically built casing. Although it appears to be like any other analogue watch in the very beginning, it actually tracks your activity, counts the calories one has burnt and monitors your sleep patterns as well.
This device has a miraculous 8-month long battery life paired with a decent app by the company that is phenomenal when linking up to other platforms as well. But, one small flaw with this device is that it doesn’t count your steps if you are not moving your hands while walking. What a setback for something so beautiful! But, if you are willing to overlook this little hitch in the system then you could very well go and grab one of these from your nearest outlet.
The last spot in our list is taken by the evergreen Fitbit Alta that stands as by far the most stylish and sleek activity trackers, back when it was launched. Although this beauty isn’t as feature equipped as its older sibling, the Fitbit Alta HR, it still is one of the best in the lot. Premium features like waterproofing and swim tracking, and GPS are missing, the Fitbit Alta is still one of the best devices for basic activity tracking.
The accuracy of step tracking is pretty decent and the smart notifications are pretty useful. It also comes with an OLED display and the Fitbit app probably the best one out there. Although the Alta is a little too basic for hardcore users seeking all premium features, it will still be a winner for general seekers looking for a fairly decent package.
Finally, these are best trackers one can choose to lift up their health and fitness. More updates are coming soon, stay tuned!
