Since, I’m really trying to get on board with this “get fit” challenge I’ve got going on, I’ve been looking at different activity trackers out there and I’ve got to admit, there are quite a few that have caught my eye. And just in case anyone wants to know which gadget I use for running, it’s this Suunto watch. I absolutely love it, it’s got all the perks I need and gives me a great overview of my work out.
But now I’m looking for something a little more dainty, that looks cute but also tracks my activity on a daily basis, so I can get a better grasp on my health and fitness. I’m loving these below, can’t really decide on a favorite, although I admit the Bellabeat is sort of awesome and the boss lady behind it, Urška Sršen, is Slovenian.
OK, so maybe I’m a little biased but it’s pretty beautiful as is the philosophy behind it.
FITBIT CHARGE 2 – Fitbit has been around since 2007 and has a great history of wireless technology, namely fitness and health trackers. The CHARGE 2 is a new addition to their range and has some pretty great features. Aside from the essentials, like all-day tracking, sleep tracking, automatic exercise recongition, GPS, it also tracks your heartbeat and has calendar, text and call alerts. So even if you’re exercising without your phone you can still be in the loop.
KATE SPADE NEW YORK – This is also a brand new activity tracker and as you can see it’s got that Kate Spade NY signature design. I think it’s just adorable as a smart accessory. It logs movements such as how many steps you took, distance you walked, sleep and even water consumption (mine would probably beep all the time :-()
BELLABEAT URBAN LEAF – As mentioned above, I have a slight preference for this one but I’ve been a great fan of the company ever since the beginning, when their range included neonatal and pregnancy trackers, and I just love the feminine philosophy behind it. The Bellabeat has everything you’d want in a smart piece of jewelry, including a menstrual cycle tracker and a stress indicator; something you won’t find in other smart accessories. Plus it looks absolutely beautiful. The Leaf comes with different accessories so you can play around with your look or you can just clip it on your shirt and you’re all set.
SWAROWSKI ACTIVITY TRACKER – Of all the activity trackers, this one is definitely the blingiest. If you’re a fan of Swarowski, it will definitely make you happy to know they too have smart bracelets. You can play around with the style as much as you want, as the crystal is the actual tracker. So you can bling it up or down to your heart’s desire.
WITHINGS ACTIVITÉ POP – Definitely the most classic one of them all, the Withings Activté Pop is also a regular watch, as well as an activity tracker. It’s available in a variety of different colors, looks super stylish and has an 8 months + battery life so hello, no charging!
