There are great brands like Fitbit, Garmin, Wittings and Misfit on the market, and their equipment also offers more rigorous style, 24/7 heart rate monitoring and useful health insights. For the user, a suitable bracelet will be active based on his personal needs and lifestyle. Some people only need to calculate the number of steps and reliable sleep tracking, while others need GPS to locate, advanced measurement of resting heart rate and maximum oxygen uptake. The good news is that in the following introduction, there is a piece of fitness smart wear suitable for him.


The best fitness tracker

Fitbit Charge 2


Fitbit Charge 2 has risen its position on smartwatches and although the device initially performed slightly below its expectations, Fitbit Charge 2 has been improving its smart wearable device since its launch, giving it an excellent rating, And boarded the top of the list. In addition to the usual pedometer and sleep tracking - all user records are on Fitbit's awesome app - the Charge2 tracks heart rate monitors resting heart rate and now evaluates health. To combat stress, a major new breathing exercise is added to health functions, and Fitbit's new breath training provides insight into software updates that make this feature even more effective in sleep trackers.

Heart rate tracking becomes very weak during a very stressful exercise, which means it is not enough for a heavy user, and we still have some minor complaints about this interface. But it will accurately track GPS positioning, provided that you want to bring your cell phone.

That being said, but Fitbit Charge 2 is one of the most powerful devices on the market and now our number one tracker.

Features: Step count, sleep monitoring, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, breathing training, maximum oxygen uptake

Bracelet runner-up

Garmin Vivosmart HR +

Yes, Fitbit charge2 is already on the top of the list, but Vivosmart HR + offers great activity for heart rate testing and GPS tracking which is easy for those bracelets, but the dilemma is trying to run on one phone. Although it's still a little thicker and the screen is less appealing than the Fitbit Alta HR, it's great when it comes out to provide about a week of battery life. It is water resistant to about 50 meters in depth despite the disappointing lack of swimming patterns.

Running statistics show that if you want better speed, tracking distance, or basic personal data, you need to move into the GPS watch area properly.
