If you are trying to improve your fitness, one of the most powerful tools is using a fitness tracker. Fitness trackers are watches, rings, and straps (wearables) that are intended to be stylish and help you track your fitness progress. These trackers provide you with detailed insights and data about your body like resting heart rate, HRV, sleep length and quality tracking, workout, and step tracking, and so much more.
The staff at Basic Bands has been employing fitness trackers for several years now and highly recommends them! There are many options to choose from, so we have made it easy for you by narrowing it down to the three best wrist trackers on the market.
Best for Style: Apple Watch Series 7
Apple made fitness trackers cool and brought them into the mainstream. As with all Apple products, design comes first, and the Series 7 looks great on any wrist. With multiple different band options and colors, you can use the Series 7 for any occasion from a swimming workout, yoga, casually, or in the office.
If your goal is to have a smart watch with great technical capabilities and an attractive design, we recommend the Apple Watch Series 7.
Best for Actionable Insights: Fitbit Sense
The Fitbit Sense is Fitbit’s top-line smartwatch. It is intended for those who love viewing and tracking their health data. This watch has all the data bells and whistles, differentiating from some of the competitors. In addition to normal heart rate, workout, and sleep tracking, the Sense has other unique features such as a Daily Readiness Score that reveals if you are recovered enough to exercise, an on-wrist skin temperature sensor, and an industry leading six-day battery life.
If you would enjoy in-depth health data and insights, we highly recommend the Fitbit Sense.
Best for Runners: Garmin Forerunner 255
Garmin, known primarily for their GPS technology, are a dominant player in the fitness tracker industry. The newest watch in the Garmin series, the Forerunner 255 is unrivaled due to the accurate GPS needed to track distance while running and a durable Gorilla Glass 3 display. On top of this, the 255 can hold up to 500 songs so that you no longer need to bring your phone with you on runs.
If you are a runner, or thinking about getting into running, the Forerunner 255 is the best watch for you.
