Best fitness bands to look for

Best fitness bands to look forIf you are currently a little, shall we say, sedentary, and are looking to get fit in 2015, a fitness tracker (aka a fitness band, aka “those things you wear that count your steps) is the best place to start. They can make a real difference to how you look and feel, without the need for a gym or massive exertion. 2015 is going to be another big year for the wearable. More importantly, the best of these offer context and tips on how to improve your fitness.

Fitbit Surge

Looking a lot more like a smartwatch than your typical fitness band from Fitbit, the Surge has from a rubber strap and a stainless steel buckle, plus a 1.25-inch monochrome LCD touchscreen display.

Jawbone UP3

Built on an ‘advanced multi sensor platform’, the latest addition to Jawbone’s family of fitness trackers features a newly designed tri-axis accelerometer, bioimpedance sensors, plus skin and ambient temperature sensors. But what do they all mean? Well, Jawbone says that they can measure your resting heart rate, perspiration, BMI and hydration, some of which we haven’t seen in a fitness band yet. The UP 3 should also be much better at auto-tracking your activity, while the sleep tracking tech has also seen a big improvement. Along with telling you if you were in a deep, light or REM sleep, it’ll also give you handy tips on how to improve your slumber. Unlike the Fitbit Charge, there’s no display, so you’ll have to check the iOS or Android apps for detailed stats, but you will get a week of charge.

Sony SmartBand Talk

Another smartwatch and fitness tracker hybrid, Sony’s SmartBand Talk takes all the features from the brand’s SmartBand, like step counting, sleep tracking and pairs it with a curved display to give you a load of glanceable information on your wrist. It evens connects with your phone to receive notifications and you can use the in-built speakerphone to answer calls. It’s waterproof up to 1.5m and should last about three days on a charge.

Razer Nabu X

Itching the display, which was there to show you notifications from your phone, the Nabu X replaces it with three lights, which flash when you need to check your device. The regular set of fitness features is still here and Razer is hoping in the future you’ll be able to easily communicate with other wearers with just a tap.
