Finding the best fitness trackers is no easy task. Fitness trackers are part of a rapidly growing category at the moment. We've been seeing bands from the likes of FitBit and Jawbone, both of whom have released several models over the years. We've also been seeing new bands from established names in the fitness space such as Garmin, Polar, and NordicTrack. Not to mention, the bands coming from established companies outside the fitness space — namely Microsoft and the recently released (and rather simply named) Microsoft Band.
Just with that there are already plenty of models to consider before making a purchase. And not to add any more confusion to the process, but we are also seeing some category crossover with smartwatches, running oriented fitness watches, and some standalone mobile apps. Basically, all of that is to say the fitness band category may seem a bit messy or overwhelming at the moment. We've even discovered some (previously unknown to us) models while compiling this buyers guide. And if we've missed some, it seems safe to believe others may have as well.
So just what are your options for the best fitness bands? Read on and let's find out!
