If you are in the market for a fitness tracker, you’ve probably noticed that there is a huge number of options out there. Companies like Fitbit tend to dominate the conversation, but there are many other fitness tracker brands that deserve a look.
Many of the non-Fitbit brands have devoted followers, and many trackers get consistently high marks. That’s great news for consumers: it means that there are options for every budget. The not so great news when it comes time to make a decision: how does one pick from the seemingly endless options? Do you go with a big name and choose a Fitbit? How do you pick a model if you’ve determined your budget?
Fortunately, we’ve got answers.
This Fitness Trackers Guide will cover the basics of fitness trackers, including features, apps, and tracking functions. But first, we’ll give you a breakdown of our favourites at popular price points and for particular features.
Shopping by Price
Finally, price is one of the key categories of fitness trackers. You can spend anywhere from $40 to several hundred dollars depending on the features you want. If you are on a tight budget, you can still find something that will give you the basics like tracking your steps. Spend a bit more and you can get heart rate tracking, spend even more than that and get GPS or a higher water rating.
It’s worth it to save up to get the device you really want, if that’s a possibility for you, and if you truly see yourself getting a lot of use out of the device. With all that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best fitness trackers you can get for more budget-friendly prices.
