Fitness and activity trackers have come a long way. Even the most basic now provide data on heart rate, distance travelled, speed and calories burned. This can give you really useful information on both your day-to-day activity and your exercise regime.
The Fitbit is probably the most well known brand of activity tracker but there are many others with similar functions. For example, Garmin fitness trackers for kids monitor steps, sleep and 60 minutes of recommended activity per day. They also include adventures and games on a parent-controlled app. A motion analysis algorithm is integrated into the Huawei fitness tracker, which will help you to exercise in a scientific way. It’s also waterproof to 50 metres. If you simply require a pedometer and data on distance, calories and sleep, the Samsung fitness tracker or Nuband fitness tracker could be for you.
For serious athletes and outdoor adventurers a GPS watch might fit the bill. The Samsung smart watch tracks your fitness and diet, keeping you on the right path towards your goals, while the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus includes sophisticated training functions, European maps and a multi-satellite network to track in more challenging environments. These watches also have their own contactless payment systems, so you can leave your debit card at home. If you prefer to stay at home and exercise, then how about a treadmill or rowing machine, perfect for a spare room or garage.
