Back when smartwatches were still a niche trend, the fitness tracker market basically consisted of one or two brands. Now, it seems that every tech brand has its own version of wearable tech. While having options is fine and dandy, the variety does sort of make choosing a gadget that much harder. Luckily, we're here to help with that.
Increasingly, fitness trackers are zooming out from counting steps and calories to an overall approach to health. Many smartwatches now offer meditation app integration, or timed breathing exercises intended to encourage a mindful moment of pause.
Whether you're running miles every morning, aiming to stay over 10k steps a day, or simply looking to take a deep breath, there's a fitness tracker that's perfect for your lifestyle and workout regimen. From Apple Watch's Activity app-fueled tracker to Fitbit's sleekest band yet, we've edited a curated assortment of gadgets you'll love to wear every day.
So, which one is right for you? Ahead, your best bets for fitness trackers at every budget.
