Simply tracking your activity can be a good way to motivate yourself to do more. The Nike Fuelband makes that simple: it’s a wristband that contains motion sensors to track your movement through the day, translating your activity into ‘Nike Fuel’ points that aim to let you compare yourself to others, regardless of the sports you’re doing. It also counts the steps you take – 10,000 per day is seen as a good indicator of a healthy lifestyle – and tells the time. It comes in three colours but the sleek black version is the coolest.
Nike+ Fuelband SE
For those who need a little more motivation to reach their fitness goals, this wristband might do the trick. The band records various metrics as users exercise, and converts them into NikeFuel, a proprietary measurement system. This is then pushed to the smartphone app, which analyzes performance and helps build social networks around fitness regimens.
If you’re willing to splurge a little more for a fitness wristband tracker, the Microsoft Band ($199) is your best investment. In addition to monitoring steps, workouts, calories burned, sleep cycle and heart rate, it displays calendar alerts, call and text notifications (the Fitbit Charge only does the latter) and even your tweets. It acts more like a smartwatch than most fitness trackers we’ve seen so far.
Fitbit Charge HR
Rather than just tracking how many steps you take, the Charge HR can see exactly how hard you’re working. It allows far more accurate estimate of the number of calories that you burn. You can also track your resting heart rate – hopefully seeing it fall as you get fitter. That measurement is taken while you sleep as it’s the most relaxed and inactive you get.
The Garmin Vivofit is for the city fitness junkie who want to track steps taken, calories burned, hours slept and overall fitness progress. It also tracks heart rates, is water-resistant and lets you sync the collected data to your smartphone. It comes with a 1-year battery life and tracks fitness levels 24 hours a day. [$129]
Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS running watch
If you want a simple watch to record runs with minimal fuss, the Forerunner 620 is not for you. But if you want help to plan a training schedule, to track how well you perform and get advice on how much faster you’re capable of going and when to try again, then this is the GPS watch for you.
LG Lifeband Touch
The Lifeband Touch features a bright OLED screen that is visible even when you’re outdoors, and it’s touch sensitive for easier navigation. You’ll be able to see your fitness activities, calories burned, speed, and other measurements taken through its 3-axis accelerometer and altimeter sensors. You can also pair it with a heart rate monitor or smartphone to view notifications and control music. [$179]
This web-connected toothbrush from Oral-B syncs with an app and gives you real-time data about how well you’re brushing and if you’re missing some key spots. It’s also a good tool for kids too — parents can monitor just how well they’re doing and how they might need to improve.
iFit started out as a fitness tracking app but has now ventured into making their own fitness tracker called the iFit Active. The Active would come with a mode-switching feature, depending on where you are: at home sleeping, braving traffic to get to work or doing your morning gym routine. These modes change automatically to allow 24-hour tracking without any hiccup. [$129]
Lumo Lift is a posture-correcting device that you can wear on your chest. This little gadget nudges you to stand up straight. The Lumo Lift which comes in a variety of colors, detects your body’s positioning and when you start to slouch, the device vibrates and reminds you to adjust your stance. The Lift can be clasped to an undershirt, collar or bra strap.
It reminds you to sit straight by generating small vibrations. It can also track how often you are sitting in the proper posture in a day. It also tracks steps and calories burnt. To view the data collected, just pair it with a smartphone. [$59-$79]
Spree is currently the only consumer fitness tracker that can tell you in detail the temperature your body is operating at. To do this, the device has to be worn on the forehead. Spree can track your heart rate, movement and the distance you have covered through the app. [$299]
Thanks to a nifty device backed by experts and physicians, users can now have information about their hearts at their fingertips—literally. By grasping the FDA-cleared Heart Monitor (which attaches to the back of a phone), users can record an electrocardiogram to be analyzed by AliveCor’s experts or shared with a cardiologist.
The fashionable Netatmo JUNE measures your daily sun exposure rates and will advise you to wear a hat or apply sunscreen lotion when necessary. Itmeasures the sun’s intensity in real time. The information can be viewed when paired with a smartphone. [$99]
