Best Fitness Trackers

Whilst at the simplest level a fitness tracker is something you put on your wrist and check whether you’ve walked 10000 steps in a day there are so many things you can do and track with your wearable.

So on this page we will cover some of the other things you can do like listen to music and track your favorite fitness activities.

Listen to music

Listening to music whilst working out or running gives you an incentive to go that bit further or faster.

The best option is a fitness tracker that plays music without a smartphone with onboard storage and access to services such as Spotify
