FITBIT CHARGE HR

The Fitbit Charge HR might not win any beauty competition, but it has everything you need from a fitness tracker. An Oled screen displays all the important fitness statistics. A heart rate monitor constantly measures your heart rate. It automatically tracks your sleep as well. Plus, it has a good battery life of five days on a full charge.

GARMIN VIVOFIT 2

The Garmin Vivofit 2 has no built-in heart rate sensor, but it is water-resistant down to a depth of 50m and has an always-on display. Furthermore, it does not need any charging as it runs on two CR1632 coin batteries, which provide a battery life of more than a year.

WITHINGS ACTIVITE POP

For those who want their fitness tracker to do double duty as an analogue watch, the Withings Activite Pop is the perfect choice. The main watch face has a minimalist design without any numerals, while a smaller dial on the watch face shows your progress as a percentage of your daily step target. A CR2025 coin battery provides a battery life of eight months.

JAWBONE UP3

This looks more like a designer bracelet than fitness tracker. It might not have a display, but it automatically tracks your physical activities, including steps taken and sleep. With the new firmware update, its heart rate monitor is now able to track your heart rate all day.
