Top 5 Fitness Trackers Comparison Review
Fitness trackers are an easy and effective way of getting important, up-to-date information while exercising.
Checking your speed, your heart rate, and other important information while exercising has never been easier. But, because of their usefulness, the market has understandably been flooded with tons of fitness trackers, so for a consumer, picking the best ones can be difficult.
To help make your decision a bit easier, in this article we will go over the top 5 fitness trackers on the market today.
1) Fitbit Versa Smartwatch
Battery lasts for 4+ days, allowing for 24/7 monitoring of heart rate, sleep patterns, etc.
Compatible with music apps like Deezer and Pandora, allowing you to listen to music on the go.
Supports a wide variety of apps, including weather, mail, messaging, and many other kinds of apps.
Over 15 different exercise modes.
It is hard to overstate how useful the Fitbit Versa is for people interested in exercise or who are just on the go. First off, it is extremely light.
With a lot of fitness trackers, you kind of have to get used to them being a bit of a dragon on your wrist, but that is not the case with the Fitbit.
It is extremely light, and eventually, it gets to the point where you can’t even tell that you are wearing it.
Setting it up is extremely easy.
With so many features, you’d assume that the Fitbit takes a while to actually get set up, but you’d be mistaken.
From the time you take it out of the box, you should be able to have the Fitbit up and running within half an hour at most.
Even if you aren’t familiar with fitness trackers, you should be able to set it up fairly easily.
It tracks everything that you want to know when exercising, and it is easy to choose different exercise modes.
It has a great battery life, meaning you don’t have to worry about constantly charging it.
Overall, it is a great fitness track and there are really no noticeable downsides to talk about.
Each person may have a different experience with the Fitbit, but for our money, it is one of the best fitness trackers on the market today.
2) Letscom Activity Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor Watch
Accurately records a variety of statistics all day long, including steps taken, sleep quality, heart rate, and much more.
- Can be linked with social media apps like Twitter, Facebook, and more.
- 14 different exercise modes to give you a lot of flexibility.
- Can be configured to show messages, calls, etc.
The Letscom is a great fitness tracker. It has a sleek, slender design that fits nicely on any sized wrist.
Plus, because the screen is relatively small it doesn’t weigh heavily on your wrist at all.
It monitors everything that you want your fitness tracker to monitor, including your heart rate, sleep quality, calories, and steps taken.
So, on that front, there really isn’t anything missing. It also has a good amount of variation because there are fourteen different exercise modes available to choose from.
In terms of extras, it is really helpful to be able to connect the Letscom to all your social media accounts and your email, it makes staying on tops of things simple.
Really, the only downside to the Letscom is that its screen is a bit small, so reading it on the go is a bit difficult.
I would have liked to have seen a slightly bigger screen, but that’s really the only complaint.
3) Willful Fitness Tracker
Waterproof design makes it great for swimming or use in the rain.
- 14 different training modes
- LCD screen
- Charged battery gives a full week of use
By far the biggest benefit of the Willful is its incredibly long battery life.
Depending on how often you use it and what you use it for, you can expect to get six to seven continuous days of use out of the Willful.
Another major benefit is its waterproof functionality, which opens up a lot of options. You can the Willful both swimming and diving.
You can also use it in the rain. If you are into swimming or other aquatic sports, this fitness tracker is a must-have.
Outside of that, it has all the standard features you would expect out of a fitness tracker, including mail, messaging, and phone apps.
It also has social media integration, so you can link Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and other social media apps.
Overall, this is a great fitness tracker at a good price.
4) Letsfit Waterproof Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor
The Letsfit doesn’t do anything particularly revolutionary; in fact, it is quite similar to the Willful Fitness Track we just covered. But, despite not really bringing anything new to the table, it does do everything well.
- Tracks statistics of over 10 different sports.
- Easy USB charging
- Long-lasting battery provides up to a full week of use off one charge
- Caller ID and message identification enable you to stay up to date while exercising
It can be configured to work with a wide variety of sports, including yoga, running, walking, tennis, badminton, basketball, and many others.
As the name states, the Letsfit is waterproof, meaning you can also use it while swimming.
Although it must be noted that swimming isn’t one of the preset sports, so you’ll have to configure it yourself.
Personally, it would have been nice to see a bit more social media integration with the Letsfit.
You can use it to see texts, emails, and calls, but you can’t link it to your Facebook, Twitter, or WhatsApp accounts, which is what a lot of people use for work communications.
The Letsfit is definitely a good option for those who want a quality, affordable fitness tracker.
Its only real weakness is a lack of social media integration, but if that isn’t a problem for you, it has no other real downsides.
5) Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband
If you are familiar at all with fitness trackers, then you know that the name “Fitbit” means quality and this fitness tracker is no exception.
The Fitbit Charge 2 tracks everything that you could possibly want to track while working out.
- Automatically tracks a wide variety of statistics, including fat burned, heart rate, calories burned, steps climbed, floors climbed, and a lot more
- Can be synced with Windows and Mac computers
- OLED screen which lets you know when you have messages, calls, or emails incoming
You can see what both your regular and peak heart rate, as well as how many calories and how much fat you have burned.
You can also sync your Fitbit with most computers to keep track of your stats.
In general, the Fitbit is well-made and durable.
It doesn’t feel flimsy and you can tell that it can survive an accidental drop or two.
The only thing really holding back the Fitbit is the lack of app integration.
Sure, you can receive messages, calls, etc. But, you can’t connect it to social media or music apps.
This isn’t a big deal (you can always listen to music another way while exercising), but it is a bit disappointing given the price point.
If you don’t mind the lack of music and social media integration, and you don’t mind the relatively high price point, the Fitbit Charge 2 is a great fitness tracker and worthy of a purchase.
