Best Fitness watch Review Video

Fitness watches for SALE

Some models analyse heartbeat and the quality of sleep in addition to the usual functions of a smartwatch. More often than not these watches are synced in to a computer or smartphone via bluetooth technology.

The good watches will have lots of useful functionality to help motivate your sports and training sessions. Not to forget good battery life and all day all activity monitoring as well as having plenty of storage space for music.

Summarizing good fitness watches will do everything your smartwatch does as well as allow you to track and monitor your performance even whilst swimming.

More about Fitness watches

Basically a fitness watch aka fitness tracker, is a tech device or app used for tracking and monitoring all metrics related to fitness. Such metrics may include for example distance walked or run, calorie worked off, as well as sometimes also heartbeat.

It can be likened to a kind of wearable computer. Nowadays fitness watches means a smartwatch that is synced, more often than not via bluetooth, to a computer or smartphone for tracking. There are also many types of independent mobile and Facebook apps. which are used to help monitor and track performance leading to weight loss and increasing endurance.

The choice for selecting a fitness watch is mind boggling

With so much choice available to you when choosing a new fitness watch it can be mind boggling which one to choose. Which fitness watch has all the right features for you considering the activities that you like to do? We are just going to run through some of our recommendations and tips to you when choosing the best fitness tracker for your needs.

Where and how to start searching for your new fitness watch?

For beginners who just want to start fitness tracking out we would like to recommend you do so but without a wearable device. Just simply start off by using a mobile app step counter to get you going. With this solution you will have least commitment, to see if you would like to take it a step further or is that as far as it would go with you? There are some great apps for this purpose such as Argus, Fitbit, and Moves to mention a few.

In the case that you like to go for a run or you are a cyclist, it would be highly recommended that you track your runs or bike riding with an app before jumping in with both feet and commit yourself with a fully fledged wearable tracking device.

The reason being that some trackers require you to carry your phone in order to get accurate pacing, distance, and mapping readings. So for your own benefit it would be wise to know in advance of the purchase exactly what is required.

You need to figure out if you are fine about carrying your phone with you on your activities or if you would prefer one device with everything like for example GPS built-in. Nothing sillier than having to digest unexpected surprises once you have bought your selected device. There are a number of really cool apps which are highly recommendable such as Runtastic PRO (for running), Cyclemeter (for bicycling), and Strava (for both running and cycling).

The Coros SafeSound Cycling Helmet is an interesting solution for cyclists where the phone’s GPS is incorporated into the helmet in order to track your rides using bone-conduction audio to let you hear directions, music, and phone calls without having your ears stuffed with ear-buds / earphone accessories.

How much should you spend on a fitness watch?

Generally speaking these days, the majority of fitness watches will set you back from around $50 to about $500. However there are a number of wearabe devices still available under $50, which are probably very glitchy and not durable enough for you to be satisfied with. Also worth remembering that less expensive fitness watches more often than not don’t have a decent display, so in order to check your on-going step count etcetera you would have to keep peeping into your smartphone.

The more expensive wearable devices normally have optical heart rate monitors and GPS built-in. What’s more such features would normally be geared towards users who are athletes and exercise enthusiasts.

Watch out from getting duped into buying a fitness watch aka fitness tracker with a heart rate monitor especially if your main activity would be walking. It would just add unnecessary expense to your purchase decision.

Coming back to the previous example if you prefer to walk and are not too bothered about anything else then there are plenty of really cool options available within a price range of around $49 to $149 price range.

If you do work out often, we highly recommend spending at least $99, as that’s the price point where you’ll start to see the features that are useful to very active users.

What fitness watch style is right for you?

This is also quite an important consideration when selecting your new fitness watch. What is the best style for you? Fitness watches (fitness trackers) can bebought as bracelets, watches, or clip-on devices. Bracelets and watches are hard to lose as they are firmly held in place whereas clip-on devices can be easily lost or missplaced.

Having said all that, bracelets and watches can get be uncomfortable when you have to also work on your PC or wash dishes and similar. wrist-worn fitness devices may not be designed to please the eye or match your outfit. So bottom line is if you are a little bothered about having to wear a tracking device on your wrist 24/7, then you are most probably better off using a clip-on device. Clip-ons are not so popular as they were a few years ago though.

Clip-on devices are often much smaller and more discreet when you wear them on your waistband or the front of your bra. Almost all of them don’t have displays, so you would have to rely on using a smartphone to monitor your tracked activity.

However with The Motiv Ring, in the mean-time, fitness tracking has come to your fingers. The innovative wearable ring tracking device tracks many of the same metrics as wrist-worn models but in a more discreet manner often looking like jewelry. The Kate Spade fitness tracker is a good example.

There are also really cool fitness trackers for children, like for example the Fitbit Ace 2 and Fido for your pets. That’s right, there are even trackers out there specifically for pets.

Do you need heart-rate monitoring?

If you really need heart-rate monitoring fair enough but the question is do you really need it? Especially important question as sdo many top watch brands these days are touting heart-rate monitoring as a really important feature that you can’t do without.

It all sounds like it could be the best feature ever, but you need to know that there are various types of heart-rate monitors, and to be frank, there are a number of us that don’t need it at all. Sure enough having a built-in heart rate monitor will definately make it more expensive.

The heart-rate monitors built-into the device itself are called optical heart-rate monitors. Quite a number of top fitness trackers don’t have a heart-rate monitor built-in, but pair-up with a chest strap. Almost all Garmin and Polar devices support the use of a chest strap like the top Polar H10 device. Moreover you can more often than not bundle one in when buying a fitness tracker for a few bucks extra (around $40 or $50).

Finally, if you are really keen on track of your resting heart rate, an optical heart rate monitor isn’t really necessary to get it. Just download a smartphone app which allows you to take your heart rate in around about 15 seconds with the aid of the phone’s camera. It’s enough to check your pulse once or twice a day, which should be enough for your needs.

Do you need a sleep tracker?

Will You Track Sleep?

These days where it’s a craze to track almost everything, many fitness watches with trackers buil-in can track and record your sleeping patterns. This is usually done by being sensitive to your movement using a three-axis accelerometer with settings on highly sensitive compared to what they do during the day. Many of the top devices today report using graphs that show the times when you were in light sleep and deep sleep based on motion.

Dedicated Sports and Multi-Sports Trackers

Each sport has it’s own peculiarities. Like swimmers will want a waterproof tracker, bearing in mind that not all water-safe trackers actually track swimming.

Runners will most probably want a watch that shows time, distance, pace, and lap time, at the very minimum. In order to get greater accuracy for running specific metrics without requiring to carry a smartphone, best for you would be a runner’s watch with a built-in GPS. You can check out our top picks for the best Running watches.

Also worthy of consideration is of course the watch display. In order to have your stats viewable at all times in real-time, or to be able to use your fitness tracker as a wrist-watch, best to get one with a display which is always-on. Another important point to consider is how you intend to operate your tracker is also very important. For example if you prefer to run in the cold and whilst wearing gloves, you would be better off avoiding devices that operate solely by touch-screens.

Also another good example to illustrate the point, cyclists have even more requirements which need to be considered. Don’t forget there is quite a difference between monitoring your power and cadence versus tracking how many miles you pedal and the calories you burn in the process. If you are only interested in the latter, then you would be better off with a fitness trackers that support bicycling as as one of the dedicated activities.

The more dedicated and serious cyclists would prefer a device that would be able to pair-up with further bike equipment, like a cadence sensor. In such cases best to look at tracking watches devices from sport-specific companies, like Polar, Fitbit, Garmin and Mio Global.

Using Fitness apps with your fitness watch

A fitness watch’s useable apps for tracking really do make a big difference. Regardless if you use your phone or the web, the app you use is of vital importance as that’s where you will make sense of the information that the tracking device collects.

We find that Fitbit has one of the best apps and websites tested to date by us. You get to be able to record various data that most other brands don’t, like for example calories consumed, allergy severity, and stress level.

You can even get total body analysis systems which incorporate a smart bathroom scale. The good news is that our favorites like Fitbit, Polar, and Withings are able to offer precisely that. Just take a look at the Fitbit Aria 2, the Polar Balance, and the Withings Body Cardio. These devices will send your weight measurements directly to your account, so there is no chance for you to cheat the system by entering a lower amount. The QardioBase 2 is another really interesting option, especially for pregnant women.

Smartwatch vs Fitness watch

There are a number of fitness watches (fitness trackers) that also incorporate some smartwatch functionality, and likewise there are some smartwatches that also have fitness features built-in too. For example the Fitbit Versa 2 comes the closest to joining in harmony both worlds, despite lagging far behind the Apple watch with regards to third-party app support.

We have all seen how the Apple Watch Series 5 has a high priority with regards to health and fitness tracking than any other smartwatch to date. What’s more it also has an FDA-approved electrocardiogram (ECG) function that will generate a PDF of your heart-beat rhythm so that you can easily share with your medical professionals. Now that is a feature that is just not available on any other trackers we have listed. Nevertheless the Apple watch is by conception and use first and foremost a smartwatch. See our list of the Best Smartwatch for our top picks in that category.
