The 5 Best Fitness Watches and Trackers
These Fitness Watches and Trackers will have at least a 4-star rating on Amazon. Remember that most of these watches will do very well at tracking fitness, heart rate, and calories burned throughout the day. Your choice will ultimately depend on your style and budget, of course. Let’s jump into the Best Fitness Watches and Trackers with our picks to help keep you motivated
The Fitbit Inspire is one of the cheapest options on our list of the five best fitness watches and trackers you get can when looking at the Fitbit brand of watches/trackers
Features of the Fitbit Inspire
- Tracks all-day activity, including steps, distance, hourly activity, active minutes and calories burned
- Five days of battery time
- Records Workouts
- on-screen dashboard
- intuitive touchscreen
- backlit display
- on-screen celebrations when you hit your activity goals
Some reviewers have noticed that the 5-day battery time is generous, with some users getting only two days. Still, this is a great option who want the Fitbit brand at a cheaper price
Fitbit Versa 2
Next on the list is the Fitbit Versa 2. This is a higher-end Smart Watch with the features you’d expect in a premium Fitness Watch/Tracker.
Features of the Fitbit Versa 2
- Amazon Alexa Built in
- 90 day trial of Fitbit
- Spotify App control
- Larger display
- swim proof and water resistant to 50M
- Tracks time in light, deep and REM sleep stages and get personal insights
- Get call, text, calendar and smartphone app notifications when your phone is nearby.
One of the main features is the inclusion of Amazon Alexa. This is a great smartwatch with all the capabilities you should need.
It is nice to get notifications on the watch when your phone is near, but I like to keep distractions to a minimum when I am working out.
If you have a near $200 budget, this is the option I’d recommend.
LETSCOM Smart Watch Fitness Tracker
For those on a really tight budget, The LETSCOM tracker is the way to go. It offers most of the features you need if you want a basic fitness watch that helps keep you on track with your fitness
Features of the LETSCOM Smart Watch Fitness Tracker
- Large display
- Heart Rate Monitoring
- Sleep Tracking
- Tracks steps,calories and other important data metrics
- Music control
- 10 day battery life
This is a great option for those who don’t want to spend a lot but still want a great quality product. I even bought a few for family members!
Apple Watch Series 3
When I first saw the Apple Watch, It made me think of old cartoon shows like Inspector Gadget where they would talk via their watches. It is amazing that this is now a reality with the Apple watch. Talking about the Fitness aspect, it can do the basic features like calories, steps, heart rate and more.
Features of the Apple Watch Series 3
- Retina display
- Optical heart sensor
- Stores music, podcasts, and audiobooks
- Emergency SOS
- S3 chip with dual-core processor
- watchOS with Activity trends, cycle tracking, hearing health innovations, and the App Store on your wrist
- Aluminum case
If you’re like me and love Apple-branded products, then the Series 3 Apple watch is a great entry point. It has most of the features you can expect and maybe some you wouldn’t.
Apple Watch Series 5
There’s not a whole lot of difference between Series 3 and 5. Think about it in terms of the iPhone 10 and 11. Essentially the same thing but with better, more expensive hardware and features.
Features of the Apple Watch Series 5
- Always-On Retina display
- 30% larger screen
- ECG app
- Electrical and optical heart sensors
- Built-in compass
- Emergency SOS
- Fall detection
Some of the features that would make you want the Apple Watch 5 versus the 3 is the larger screen, better materials, fall detection, and compass just to name a few. It also has a faster processor. The speaker is also 50 % louder.
Overall, you can’t go wrong with either, but if you have the budget, go for the Series 5.
