Wearable Fitness Technology

Today’s technology makes it easy to monitor daily activity and stay connected. From basic activity trackers to sophisticated smartwatches, find the ideal wearable to help you stay up-to-date with the important details of your life.You’ll find wearable technology for every level of fitness, whether you want to monitor everyday activity, start a fitness program or train for an athletic competition. And when you pair your wearable tech device with a compatible app, it’s easy to set fitness goals and log your progress.As technology becomes smaller, smarter and integrated into everything, wearing it has become a social standard. Whether it’s smartwatches, fitness trackers or even apparel, the tech you can wear to keep tabs on your fitness levels is more popular than ever. But with so many fitness gadgets on the market, it’s hard to separate the good from the not-so-good.

With that, I’ve picked out the best health and fitness gadgets you should consider adorning yourself with to help you stay fit, healthy and as techy as possible.

Apple Watch (Series 3)

Available from Apple Store

Apple’s Watch Series 3 is one of the best all-rounders when it comes to wearable tech

Quite the obvious one, the Apple Watch Series 3 is by far the most popular wearable out there right now. I mean come on, it’s Apple. Of course it is. But that’s not the only reason why it’s in my best fitness gadgets list. The third edition of the Apple Watch is actually one of the best fitness trackers you can get your hands on today thanks to its updated features such as being completely waterproof, ideal for tracking your swimming. It also has Built-in GPS and it’s own 4G connectivity. Full of features that help you stay active, motivated and connected, the Apple Watch is set to make anyone with an iPhone that more inclined to hit the pool or treadmill -even if it’s just to put its features to the test.

The UA Gemini 3 smart shoes record your running data without need to wear expensive wearables

 If you don’t trust strapping expensive wearables to yourself before plunging head first into fitness – where there’s a risk you could lose them, never to be seen again – there’s always the option of “invisible” wearable tech. Take the   Under Armour Gemini 3 RE smart shoes, for instance. The sports apparel company has integrated a fitness tracker right into the soles of the shoes, so you don’t need to adorn a smartwatch to record your fitness data. Being the most intelligent trainers you’ll ever slip your feet into, they boast an accelerometer to record running metrics and Bluetooth connectivity that saves it all to an app afterwards. And they’re great for pre-event training, too, as they engage you in a pre-run jump test that measures how ready your body is to run.

Skagen Hybrid Smartwatch – Signatur Steel-Mesh

If you want something that looks a little classier than your bog standard smartwatch, that also doesn’t look like a smartwatch, then Skagen is the company to check out. The firm specializes in smart devices that don’t look at all smart, but that’s the smart thing about them.

The Signatur Connected hybrid smartwatch is an elegant piece of wrist wear tracks basic activities automatically, and synchronizes with your smartphone, be it iOS or Android, for metrics that help you stay motivated. It runs on a standard replaceable CR2430 coin-cell battery and the strap can be easily interchanged with other 20mm straps. A great, sophisticated wearable for those that want a little more elegant fitness tracker.

The FitBit Alta HR can not only measure your sleep but tell you what you need to do to improve it

Fitbit’s latest wrist-wear offering welcomes some impressive updates, such as a much slimmer design when compared to the Fitbit Charge 2, for example. However, the Alta HR isn’t just about measuring daily exercise. Its primary focus is measuring and improving sleep,working alongside fresh innovations called Sleep Stages and Sleep Insight, which the firm touts as “a new advance in sleep tracking tech”.

Developed with leading sleep experts from Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University and the University of Arizona, Sleep Stages is powered by Fitbit’s PurePulse heart rate technology, which analyses heart rate variability to estimate the amount of time you spend in light, deep and REM sleep, as well as time awake each night, to better understand your sleep quality. Sleep Insights then uses this data to provide personalized guidance on how to improve your sleep for better overall health.

Fitbit Ionic

The Fitbit Ionic has all the features we’ve been wanting in a Fitbit for years, but it ultimately feels less than the sum of its parts.Fitbit Ionic has a better-than-most-smartwatches four-day battery life, while still having always-on heart rate and a comfy fit. It has features galore: waterproofing, GPS and on-wrist mobile payments, plus new watch faces and a growing app store. It works with iOS and Android, and has an excellent phone app and social community.

Fitbit’s fitness smartwatch has gotten better with an infusion of watch faces and apps, but some of its extra-smart features still aren’t as polished as the competition.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro

The Gear Fit 2 Pro features a nice clean and vibrant 1.5-inch display

The Gear Fit 2 Pro is one of my favorite activity trackers. It doesn’t try to be a smartwatch; it’s a simple activity tracker but comes with a host of features, including a ultra-detailed super AMOLED display. It boasts a continuous heart rate monitor, along with a pedometer, an exercise tracker and a stopwatch and timer. It also has a 5 atm water resistance rating, compared to the IP68 water resistance rating for the older Gear Fit 2, meaning it should be even more robust for proper sports use, especially swimming. A nice, slim wearable for those looking for a fitness-focused device without all the fancy extras that you might not ever use.

JBL UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate Headphones

                                                                                                                                         JBL

Gym apparel brand Under Armour have enlisted the help of audio experts JBL to build a set of in-ear Bluetooth headphones with a twist: they have a heart rate monitor built-in, too. And guess what, they are absolutely fantastic.

While this is not a completely unique idea (Bose and Jabra also make in-ear sports headphones with an integrated heart-rate sensors), few sports headphones offer this feature, and even fewer do it well. However, the UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate Headphones can connect to the company’s completely free Record platform, an app that lets you track workouts with exceptional detail. It also gives you audio updates for things like pace, distance, heart rate and heart-rate zones so you can improve on previous workouts. But best of all, the phones actually stay in your ear while you’re working out. Something I’ve had trouble with in the past with sports headphones. These buds are definitely worth paying the little extra for.

Myontec Mbody connected shorts

Myontec

Mbody is designed for anyone serious about fitness: from cyclists to duathletes and triathletes

Okay so the price might be a bit excessive for some gym shorts, but Myontec isn’t just your run of the mill shorts. The special bit of skit claims to offer “the most comprehensive and advanced training system available” with its Mbody fitness-tracking hip-huggers. Mbody is designed especially cyclists, duathletes and triathletes by collecting combined muscle load with heart rate data, such as cadence, speed and distance, via its MCell Smart measuring tech. This technology measures the electrical activity of the muscles (EMG, electromyography) and is apparently the first of its kind to do so in real-time sports performance analysis, regardless of the environment or the type of sport.

Available for iOS and Android devices, the Mbody shorts connect to the Mbody Live app on your mobile device via Bluetooth to give you your vitals but at the same time help you forget you’re wearing them thanks to their 3D elastic compression textile by Carvico Revolutional, which gives athletes comfort and freedom when in use.

Coros smart bicycle helmet

Coros

The Linx helmet is the One For All remote of cycling helmets

Everything that a cyclist could possibly ever want from a bicycle helmet has been built into the Coros smart helmet. No longer do you have to risk your life wearing earphones while riding the streets, this bicycle helmet has bone-conducting earphones built in so you can safely listen to music or GPS directions while on the road without not blocking out background sounds. Better yet, it tracks your mileage and if you have an accident, the built-in collision detection automatically sends a loved one a message to alert them to a possible accident. A smart helmet that looks pretty smart, too.

Huawei Watch 2 LTE

Zepp creates wearables for your tennis racket or baseball bat

Zepp is a digital sports training device that is not worn by you but is instead worn by the sports instrument you are holding, or kicking. Each sensor specifically tracks stats in the game their playing, so for example, for the recently launched football sensor, it will track total kicks, sprints, distance, top speed and more.

The sensor also uses auto-clip technology to capture 10 second video highlights to provide overall insights into performance on the pitch. With the sensor, the user can see information about their game that was previously only available to the professionals. The sports tracker is available for tennis rackets, golf clubs, baseball bats and footballs.

The TomTom Spark’s music storage feature means you don’t need to bring your smartphone to the gym floor

With GPS, heart rate monitoring and timing tools all in one fitness tracker, the TomTom Spark 3 is an ideal wearable for those that don’t want to fork out for an Apple Watch but are still looking to monitoring back in shape. Aimed at runners, cyclists and gym-goers fed up with taking their smartphones on the gym floor, the Spark 3 lets users track activity every sprint, stroll and step as well as see the total time, distance and the calories burned. But best of all, the Spark monitoring 3 features built in storage for songs and uses Bluetooth to sync to wireless earphones (included) so you don’t have to take your phone with you when working out, giving you more freedom to move.
