Now that Christmas is over, fitness is on most of our minds…am I right? Whether we make health-related resolutions or not, this inevitably is the time of year we promise ourselves we’ll take better care of our bodies in the months to come.
I don’t know about you, but as far as fitness trackers and wearable tech go, I am not a big fan of wearing a sport band unless I’m exercising (like in the photos above). So I thought I’d take some time to share about the chic wearable tech that’s out there right now—it’s amazing how innovative all of these brands are!
Fitbit Flex, $94+
This is what I’m wearing in the photos in this post—thank you, Santa ;) I have the black sport band, which I’m planning to wear for exercise, and also the Tory Burch double-wrap bracelet for daily wear. Though I haven’t tried every fitness tracker out there, I am pretty confident that Fitbit has the best app of all of them. It’s intuitive and easy to use, and I love that it can even track water intake (something I’m always falling short on!).
Misfit Shine, $56+
I tested out this tracker for several months last year and my favorite thing about it is that it doesn’t need to be charged! It has a watch battery in it, meaning you just replace the battery every 6 months or so (you can see your battery life using the Misfit app. Though it’s a really beautiful tracker, I loved how easy it was to hide it in my pocket if I wanted to keep it out of sight. My favorite Shine color is champagne, and they sell a beautiful tan leather band if you want to wear it like a watch.
I was sent one of these before the holidays to test out and it really is such a beautiful piece! It really looks like a cool piece of jewelry, not a fitness tracker. It’s pretty basic in terms of what it tracks and how robust the app is, but if you’re looking for something to seamlessly blend into your style and motivate you to move more, this is a great pick.
Apple Watch Sport, $249+
I keep thinking about getting one of these but haven’t been able to pull the trigger on it (maybe I’ll wait until the next model comes out?!). And while there are mixed reviews on the general functionality and use of the watch and apps, one thing most people agree on is that the health tracking aspect is pretty great. Definitely the priciest of the chic wearable picks, the advantage of this one lies in its other functions as so much more than just a fitness tracker. I’m partial to the white or black sport bands because they’re classic, neutral and go with everything. But this gold and antique white one just might be my favorite.
