1. Jawbone Up24
Simplicity is bliss
Are you in the market for a nearly weightless fitness tracker? Look no further than the Jawbone Up24. Ditching a built-in display makes it one of the lightest wearables available, weighing in at a scant 20 grams coupled with a comfortable soft exterior.
While the Up24 lacks a display of any kind, it syncs every step and your sleep data to a gorgeous smartphone app. All your biometric data is then displayed clearly with with bar graphs, line charts and all with so many colors. The Up24 will also periodically tug at you with reminders to get up, plus users can setup personalized challenges that go beyond burning more calories. For example, you can set goals to get more sleep or make sure to drink a healthy amount of water everyday.
2. Fitbit Charge
Fitbit Charge is the rebirth of the Fitbit Force
Welcome back to the best of list, Fitbit. Sure, the Fitbit Force was recalled due to causing skin irritation issues, but it was among the best step and burned calorie counters to wear on your wrist. It's back sans all of the rashes as Fitbit Charge and has the same OLED display, metrics and form factor. There's a some new stuff here too: a texturized rubber design, slightly easier-to-buckle clasp and caller ID functionality.
3. Nike FuelBand SE
The classic is still one of the best
It's an oldie but a goodie. The Nike FuelBand SE was announced way back in November 2013 but it's still one of the most stylish and effective fitness trackers to ever come out. Sporting a hard plastic band, the FuelBand SE is small and discreet as a regular - if a bit stiff - wristband. The dot matrix LED display makes for an easy to read digital clock and lights up with rainbow colors whenever you've accomplished your goals.
4. Basis Carbon Steel
All the metrics!
The Basis was one of the first companies to come out with a fitness tracker equipped with a massive array of sensors in order to track heart rate, perspiration and even skin temperature. While Basis has since introduced an all-new Peak smartwatch, it's still a bit of a mess, which is why we've included the older generation: the Carbon Steel Smartwatch.
5. Samsung Gear Fit
Fitness tracking with a side of notifications
Samsung has introduced plenty of smartwatches into the wearable world and now it has a fitness tracker with the Gear Fit. Despite a much more band shaped design, the Gear Fit still carries over many of the same features from Samsung's smartwatches including a beautiful AMOLED display and notifications.
6. Garmin Vivofit
A glorifed pedometer yes, but an excellent one at that
On the complete opposite spectrum of the Samsung Gear Fit, is the Garmin Vivofit fitness tracker. It doesn't do notifications, nor does it have GPS or a light up screen. In fact you won't even need to plug it in at night because the Vivofit comes with a battery rated to last an entire year.
