FITNESS TRACKER

FAQ

When we tested various fitness trackers, we found out how often one tends to put down their phone. If you want to actively count steps, you have to have the phone on you at all times. From this point of view, a fitness tracker can help you keep track of how much you walk during the day, as it can be worn all the time.

Amongst other things, a fitness tracker can typically help you to measure and monitor your sleep quality, exercise pace, heart rate, and calorie intake.

A heart rate monitor generally has more features compared to a fitness tracker. Think of the fitness tracker as a basic first introduction, and consider the heart rate monitor if you’re a more serious enthusiast. A heart rate monitor typically includes a GPS and various features aimed at running, cycling, swimming, and more. A fitness tracker typically only has a pedometer and heart rate monitor with a pairing of relevant apps.

If you are already the type who craves an Apple Watch or other smartwatches, then you should not buy a fitness tracker. The tracker is obviously cheaper, but a smartwatch can do all the same things, with hundreds of additional features. This is primarily where the difference lies.

A bit like heart rate monitors, fitness trackers are the first step for beginners, whereas a smartwatch would be going one step further for keener enthusiasts.
