7 Fitness Wearables That Won’t Dent Your Bank Account.


So the new year has begun and how many of us actually have added fitness goals to our list of New Year resolutions? How many of us have actually stuck to our guns and started doing various physical activities to keep ourselves fit? Let’s not mock those who have begun or who are already in the habit of working out to stay trimmed, toned and healthy.

But for those who have yet to start, remember that exercise is like paying your taxes or going for office holiday parties. They’re awful but necessary. If you want to stay healthy and keep fit, you gotta do it. So how would you motivate yourself to get the ball rollin’? Would a neat and sleek fitness tracker help?

There are so many options these days, with many brands tapping into the fitness market and saturating the retail stores with a host of fitness trackers and smartwatches. Navigating the displays and finding the right tracker or smartwatch for yourself can be a headache so we’ve narrowed it down to seven (7) types that would benefit you.

Here are 7 fitness trackers and smartwatches that can help you achieve your dreams of climbing up that flight of stairs without losing your breath or breaking your bank account.

Huawei Honor Band 4

The Huawei Honor Band 4 is, by far, the most advanced fitness tracker from Honor yet. Its highlights include a bright OLED screen, good battery life and a sleek design.

At RM245, it is good value for those on the hunt for a low maintenance wearable that can do more than a basic tracker.

The Honor Band 4 is a slim and light fitness band. It may not be as petite as the Fitbit Flex 2 but it still looks more sophisticated than its fiercest budget fitness tracker rival, the Xiaomi Mi Band 3.

Fitbit Blaze

The Blaze is yet another wonderful design by Fitbit. A smart silver-rimmed fitness watch that makes its rounds within the tech world.

A fitness tracker designed to perfection that comes with a host of amazing features, including GPS connection, on-screen workouts, sleep tracking, and multi-sport modes, while doing a great job as an attractive accessory.

Fitbit Charge 3

The Fitbit Charge 3 may not be as sophisticated as the Versa or the Ionic, but it offers many of the same features in a more compact and lightweight design.

It houses a simple, yet clear and bright display with a host of nifty smart notifications, contactless payment capabilities (for a little bit more) and all the features that Fitbit users have come to know and love.

The Fitbit Charge 3 is for those who want to stay active but aren’t so much into working out that they’d consider themselves fitness fanatics. Its amazing fitness-tracking features are all wrapped up nicely in a well-designed app, which makes it worth considering.

Fitbit Versa

Compact and lightweight are two key features of a fitness smartwatch and the Fitbit Versa is both, making it easy and convenient to use.

The smartwatch even comes with the new female health tracking app which is a great addition for women to monitor their menstrual cycle.

Now you can put your money where it’s worth and use this to track your heart rate, daily steps, and sleeping habits. You can find the review for it here on Tom’s Guide.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro is a cool fitness companion for you whether you’re doing laps in the pool or shooting hoops on the court.

Despite its size, the smartwatch can easily register your activities, measure your heart rate, track your stats and present them in bite-sized summaries to help you make better fitness decisions.

You can go all black for class or go bold with a splash of red. If you want to know more about the Gear Fit 2 Pro, read the review for it here on Trusted Reviews.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 doesn’t offer much of a high-end fitness-tracking experience, but if you just want a relatively basic device that’s affordable and attractive, this may be what you’re after.

The Mi Band 3 doesn’t weigh down your wrist, and offers a good range of features that you’ll be happy with if you’re concerned with the little things like taking a quick look at your daily step count.

The key highlights of the Mi Band 3 are its price and its battery life. Its affordable price tag is synonymous with many of Xiaomi’s products while its battery life boasts to last almost a month. The same could be said about its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi Band 2.
