Improving your activity levels is one of the best decisions you can make. Studies have shown that exercising two and a half hours a week makes a difference. Exercise reduces your chances of dying prematurely, heart attacks, and strokes. To help you exercise efficiently, we have investigated the three best activity trackers for 2018.
1. Moov Now
The Moov Now wearable is one of the best activity trackers on the market thanks to its 9-axis accelerometer. Despite not having a screen (it links to your smart phone), this tracker will not only track your movements, but it will also give you suggestions on how to improve your training. Moreover, it is also waterproof. The battery life is a generous six months – all this at a very affordable price.
2. Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro
This stunning device has a nice large AMOLED screen for you to keep up to date in real time with accurate readings. The Spotify app lets you listen to music online or offline. You can customize the Gear Fit 2 Pro with a selection of more than 3,000 apps and several watch faces.
3. Garmin Forerunner 235
Gamin’s Forerunner 235 is not a real smartwatch despite its classic round face, but it does allow you to answer calls and receive emails. It gives accurate heart rate readings, distance, time, calories, and sleep. You can also download a large selection of apps from Connect IQ.
How to Choose the Right One
Choosing the right tracker for you depends on the exercise you plan to do, as well as the amount you are prepared to pay. The options can become bewildering. Keeping in mind what kind of exercise you are planning to do and what you are trying to accomplish will simplify your decision.
