1. Fitbit Charge 3– Bigger Touch Screen Display

The Fitbit Charge 3 is an upgrade of its predecessor, Fitbit 2. And Fitbit boasts of this fitness tracker being their ever most advanced tracker.

Although some of its features remain the same as those of Fitbit 2, there is no doubting that Charge 3 is way much better. Some of the upgraded features include; battery life, display, and water resistance.

What makes Fitbit Charge 3 better than Fitbit Charge 2?

While Charge 2’s battery could only go for five days, charge three goes for seven days. Clearly, Fitbit has put into consideration of those who may be in remote areas or low power supply.

With a water resistance of up to 50m, Charge 3 allows you to comfortably go on with your activity without fear of water damage.

Whether it’s showering or swimming, Charge 3 will still be okay. This is better given that its predecessor’s water resistance level was just splash.

Another feature we can’t ignore is the display which is bigger and better. Charge 3’s touchscreen is big enough for easier reading.

Other features

Not everyone keeps fit by lifting weights and Fitbit knows this so well. So, Charge 3 gives you over 15 exercise modes of options to choose from.

They include; running, swimming, bike, yoga, among others. As you work out, this tracker gives you real-time statistics so that you know how well you are progressing.

If you have been attentive in your health and fitness classes, you must have learned that the number of calories you take and those you burn really matter.

If your intake of calories outweighs the number of calories you are burning, then you know that something is wrong.

Something is wrong because you will end up with excess Calories hence exposing your body to certain risks such as cardiovascular diseases.

This is why you must always keep a record of the number of calories you burn and those you take. Fitbit Charge 3 keeps a record of the number of calories you burn each to time you wear the tracker on your wrist.

Besides that, it also connects with your smartphone and you will be able to see notifications by a glance at your wrist. It also records the time spent in different sleep stages and tracks your heart rate 24/7.

For all the above features, this tracker had to be on the top of our ‘best wrist fitness trackers’ list.

What users like

Although the face of the tracker is a bit wide, users like the fact that it does not make it bulky. Also, most people had an issue with the date not showing on the clock face but the issue has since been resolved.

The other thing that users like is that you can scroll through the stats either from the tracker or your smartphone.

The tracker also comes with a small and a large band and it’s, therefore, unlikely that you will have fitting issues

What users dislike

With all its goodness, Fitbit 3 has its downside as well. Users have complained about the tracker being inaccurate or even failing completely shortly after purchase while others feel it’s not good enough for athletes on sports people.

It, however, works well enough for people whose aim is to only keep fit. In short, some users believe that Fitbit could have done better in terms of the tracker’s software development.

Pros.

It’s water proof

Big screen

7 days of battery life

Light

Cons

Inaccurate heart rate

Does not automatically detect when you start or stop

Lacks onboard GPS

2. Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro Smartwatch Fitness Band- With Warrant and Lets You Listen and Download Music

If you always have to remove your luxurious luminous watch before jumping to the shower and it makes you sick, then this tracker is what you need.

With a water resistance of up to 50m, you don’t have to unstrap it from your wrist while going swimming, to the shower or even cycling in the rain.

This is a plus for those lazy days you don’t feel like lifting a finger and when you need to go cycling in the rain.

No matter the weather, this tracker continues to do its job as it should. And it’s not just waterproof; it’s dustproof as well.

However, after using it in sea water, you are supposed to dry it or rinse in fresh water.

Cycling or jogging alone can be boring sometimes. But this tracker can’t afford to see you bored in your workouts.

It, therefore, gives you an option to listen to your favorite playlist as you go on with your activities. And you can also download music with this fitness tracker.

There is something about music when you are doing something. Even if you are tired or bored of doing something, the moment you get carried away by good music, you forget about the things that do not matter.

You forget that you have miles to still cover and before you even know it, you have already hit your fitness goals of the day.

Such s the power of music and Samsung knew better than to skip this important feature.

The fit2 tracker also has what some of the highest rated ones lack; an in-built GPS. With this feature, Fit2 is able to track each and every step and mile that you make in your activity.

Although connecting this gadget with Samsung Galaxy smartphones gives the best results, the tracker is also compatible with Android phones as well as iOS smartphones.

Coupled with fitness apps powered by Under Armour, the fitness journey can only get easier and more interesting.

What users like

Users of this product are impressed by the water resistance as well as its ease of use. Its sleek design, lightweight, and enough pegs to adjust the size is also something the users like.

With heavy use and with all the features active, the battery can last for up to three days which is quite impressive. Not to mention the built-in GPS and music beats to psyche you up while working out.

What users dislike

Some users seem to be concerned about the tracker’s band with some complaining that it is not waterproof at all.

Others are dissatisfied by this tracker’s durability claiming that the tracker becomes faulty or stops functioning weeks or a few months after purchase.

Pros

Inbuilt GPS

Allows you to listen to music

It’s water and dustproof

Battery last long

Cons

The band easily gets damaged by water

Poor warranty

The battery does not last long enough

3. Apple Watch Series GPS Space Gray Aluminium Best Rated

You might think that Apple is simply overrated or all they sell is their famous brand. But if you have ever used one of their gadgets, then you will agree with me that they don’t take chances when it comes to producing quality over quantity.

And if the online reviews of this Apple watch are anything to go by, then yes, it’s not just one of the highest rated.

In fact, we highly recommend it as one of the best to buy. But be prepared to part with some good amount of money as it is also one of the most expensive fitness trackers.

So, what’s so great with this fitness tracker? You are wondering. First of all, the reviews are so impressive that you want to place an order just by reading customer reviews. Nobody wants to get a product with more negative than positive reviews online.

But besides the amazing reviews, the Apple Watch series 4 comes with an in-built GPS, larger display, 50m water resistance and a 50% louder speaker. Its large display makes it easy to read and its latest technology allows for automatic work out detection.

And since everything is incorporating the voice technology these days, this watch has Siri which only makes it better.

What users like

What users dislike

This gadget is already expensive and the fact that repairing it is equally expensive is a disappointment to most users who feel cheated especially because the tracker is quite fragile.

Users also seemed to be concerned about the tracker’s battery life. One needs to charge I regularly as the power goes off after a few hours.

Pros

Has Siri

Automatic workout detection

Fall detection

Automatic workout detection

Water and dust proof

Cons

Only compatible with Apple iOS

Music requires subscription

It’s expensive to repair

4. Withings Steel Sport Smartwatch – Best Activity Tracker, and Sleep Monitor With 25 Days of Battery Life

When Nokia bought Withings, it seems like things didn’t go as expected and Withings co-founder had to buy the company back from Nokia.

Determined to revive their business, Withings did not just come back to the market but they came back with a new product; Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch.

One very important feature of this watch is its ability to keep charge for long. 25 days of battery life is something commendable.

If you work out heavily though, the tracker can go for up to five days which is still something most can’t achieve.
