Top fitness trackers to look for

The 15-Minute Resistance-Band WorkoutThere are now so many top fitness trackers on the market that choosing the best one can be difficult.

Jawbone UP2
While the Jawbone UP2 falls short of the Charge HR’s advanced fitness skills, it’s a comfortable, good looking and accurate activity tracker that totally nails the basics. The strong activity tagging, sleep monitoring and smart alarm make a near dream suite of features. In fact, we’d recommend the UP2 over its more advanced bigger brother, the Jawbone UP3, because pound-for-pound it represents much better value.

Moov Now
Moov Now is a small, round element, which you clip into a strap and wear around your leg and pair with a smartphone. The aim of the game is advanced sports training plans – at which it excels, with actionable running and cycling data aimed at making you better at the sports you love.

The good news is that Moov Now – the second generation product – also works as a daily step and sleep tracker, making it a decent activity band when you’re not busting out interval times.

Garmin Vivoactive
This every day sports wearable blends fitness and sports features with reliable notifications in a reasonably priced package. It’s not exactly a looker but don’t let that put you off, the Vivoactive has GPS to accurately track running, cycling and swimming with live pace and distances. It’s not perfect – the screen is dull and the sleep tracking is awful – but as an easy to live with sports companion with access to Garmin Connect, this is a brilliant buy.

Fitbit Surge
Like the Fitbit Charge HR, the Surge sports built-in heart rate monitor which keeps tabs on your pulse all day for super accurate activity tracking – but the Surge packs an extra punch. Made for sports, the Surge has GPS for running, cycling and also works in the gym. Not only that, but the full OLED screen will display calls, texts and notifications in full, making this a true fitness super watch.
