The Fitbit Zip
The Fitbit Zip will track all of the steps and calories that you take with any PC or smart phone. It’s a very unique health device as it is not only affordable (most come under sixty dollars), but it is also very resistant to water. However, the Fitbit Zip is unable to measure sleep, and it also does not have a rechargeable battery.
The Pebble Watch is a very durable and wearable health device that will run multiple different apps and is compatible with both Android and iOS phones. However, it can be rather difficult to use in today’s modern technology era, as it does not have a touch screen. But for your money, you’re definitely getting a good device with the Pebble Watch. Ultimately, it’s a matter of what you need and don’t need.
Basis Fitness Watch
The Basis Fitness Watch definitely proves its worth at multitasking: it can track steps, calories and your heart rate, will sleep automatically, is compatible with both Android and iOS smart phones, and is also quite comfortable to wear. If there’s a major con with the Basis Fitness Watch that needs to be discussed, it’s that it is on the expensive side; you can plan on breaking about $150 out of your bank account to buy one.
The Martian Notifier is classy, affordable, and very appealing. As with the other devices on this list, it’s quite comfortable to wear and also works with both iOS and Android smart phones. Unfortunately, despite its style and appeal, the Martian Notifier is not that resistant to water, so if you spend a lot of time exercising at the pool ever, this is definitely not the health device as well.
Last but not least, we come to the Jawbone Up24, which is quite appealing as it is not only extremely simple to use, but it also provides you with a wide variety of tasks: it will count your steps, your sleep and your calories. It’s also very light and comfortable to wear (a major reason why it’s included on this list), and very durable and resistant to water. But if there’s one obvious downside to the Jawbone Up24, it’s that it does not have a screen for you to check your progress quickly.
