The 13 Best Fitness Trackers and Watches for Everyone

LIKE EVERY PIECE of gear you wear on your body day in and day out, fitness trackers are incredibly personal. Not only do they have to be comfortable and attractive, but they must also accommodate your lifestyle, as well as when and how you like to work out. Do you bike, row, or do strength training? Do you run on trails for hours at a time, or do you just want a reminder to get up every hour?Get more news about Fitness Watch Factories,you can vist our website!

No matter what your needs, there's never been a better time to find a powerful, sophisticated tool that can help you optimize your workouts or jump-start your routine. We've tested dozens over the past four years to bring you these picks. While you're at it, don't forget to check out our guides to the best smartwatches and best running gear.

Even as Fitbit has faced stiff competition from other manufacturers—most notably, the Apple Watch—its trackers have always won me over. They hit a very specific sweet spot between attractiveness, affordability, accessibility, and ease of use. They're perfect for everyone who isn't an ultramarathoner or a semi-pro powerlifter trying to hit a PR.

The Charge line has consistently reached the top of our rankings, and the Charge 5 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is no exception. This year's iteration has softer lines, a bright AMOLED screen, and almost every sensor you could want, from stress scans to ECGs. Like the Apple Watch does with iPhones, the Charge 5 fast-pairs to Android phones and has both onboard and connected GPS so you can track outdoor workouts without a hitch. You do still have to pay $10 per month for a Fitbit Premium subscription to access the new Daily Readiness feature and personalized sleep and stress insights, but the hardware is still less expensive, and the subscription cheaper, than others on this list.
For several years, one version or another of Fitbit's Versa line has occupied this spot. But now that Garmin has its own entry-level, square-shaped tracker, the Venu Sq (8/10, WIRED Recommends) edges out Fitbit's latest Versa and Sense wearables. It has the Fitbit's accessible price that we like, but with Garmin's accurate and granular fitness data added.

The Venu Sq comes in a variety of attractive colors, with a bright and responsive LCD touchscreen that has an always-on option. And while many of its competitors have been offering blood-oxygen monitoring and sleep tracking only as premium features, Garmin has includes those features in its more basic trackers and doesn't require you to subscribe to its paid software service to unlock the features. You also don't need to pay a subscription fee to access Garmin's advanced metrics through Garmin Connect.
Letsfit's smartwatch is a knockoff of the Fitbit Versa, right down to the typeface used on the watch face, but the differences are obvious to anyone who has used (and loved) a real Versa. The latch is made from cheap plastic, the tracked metrics on the watch face are rudimentary, and the VeryFitPro app is unattractive and not a joy to consult.

However, the tracker is waterproof and the pedometer is reasonably accurate. The battery lasts about one week between charges, and the band is soft and comfortable. If you want an even cheaper, simpler tracker, I like the comfortable, waterproof Xiaomi Mi Band ($49), which also has a long-lasting battery. If you're willing to spend a little more, look for older Garmin or Fitbit models that came out a year or two ago. Those regularly go on sale for well under $100.
