This article gives you a summary of 8 important things to consider before buying a fitness tracker. I hope you find them helpful.

#1. The Brand

Don’t just go out there and buy any fitness tracker that you see. Give it a careful thought, know what you really want and get the best. Although it may seem confusing if you truly don’t have any fitness brand in mind but be rest assured that you won’t regret using prominent brands such as Fitbit, Garmin, Apple, Samsung, Misfit etc.

#2. Built-In Heart Rate Sensor


If you need a fitness tracker that has the ability to give you accurate details of your daily workouts and amount of calories burned during exercises, then it is worth your money to buy a fitness tracker that features a built-in heart rate sensor.

#3. Display or Not


It will always come handy if your fitness tracker incorporates a screen so that you can be able to track the number of steps you have taken without using your smartphone. Anyways, a lot of fitness tracking wearable available in the market comes without a digital display, so it’s important you decide if you want to buy one with a screen or not.

#4. Tracking Features


Whether you are an individual who love jogging, running, swimming, cycling, losing weight, mountain climbing, walking on treadmill or just want something to wear in your hands while hiking, it is good you consider your most prioritized feature in a fitness tracker.

Naturally, swimmers will go for a water-resistant/waterproof tracking wearable and runners may hop-in for a tracker that shows them distance covered and lap times. A Built-in GPS tracker will also be helpful to runners in order to give them accurate results. Hikers can buy a tracker with basic features that shows distance walked. Cyclers will end up deciding whether they want a distance tracker, calorie tracker or brands that support bike-mounted sensors.

#5. Wireless Technology


If you are looking to connect with other wireless devices, then this feature present in your tracker will save you the stress.

#6. Apps


A lot of fitness tracking wearable supports few apps and devices with their software. Make sure you buy a brand that is compatible with your smartphone and OS.

#7. Battery Life


Each fitness tracker comes with varying battery life. Maybe, you intend wearing it for a whole day, then you need a tracker with good battery life. Don’t forget how discomforting it will be to always take it off your wrist to recharge; within every few hours of low battery. Go for trackers that need to be recharged at least every five days or have dry cell battery that last up to six months.

#8. Cost


Fitness trackers have different price range. Before buying one, it is advised you check your budget. Look out for discounts online and in shops. Find your favorite tracker and get the best deal.
