Fitness trackers are a perfect way to monitor your health and activity effortlessly and with extreme accuracy. A finger on your pulse in effect which is constantly measuring your vitals, quality of sleep and step count.

Since they have been on the market, fitness trackers have been launched with more and more features and intelligence and quite frankly just provide a better and better partner to get you fit and health aware. Yes there are basic fitness trackers, but we want to look at those that provide the most features.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro

  • Awesome Design
  • Offline Spotify Support
  • Clumsy set up processor
  • Expensive for fitness tracker

This fitness tracker has a gorgeous design that just makes this look fantastic on your wrist whilst having a big and beautiful Amoled display which enables you to see all your stats nice and clearly.

Tom Tom Spark 3

Available from Amazon from about 69.99

  • Music without using your phone
  • GPS
  • Maze-like menu system
  • Average sound quality

This is a great fitness tracker, giving you the ability to listen to music without having to have your phone with you. You can upload music directly to the Tom Tom Spark 3 so you can go out for a run without your phone with just your Bluetooth headphones.

In addition you get GPS, the traditional heart rate monitor and route navigation which is really useful for running around areas that you don't know that well. A great all-rounder.

Huawei Band 2 Pro

Available from Amazon from about 79.99

  • Reasonably priced
  • Accuracy in step counting
  • Clunky app
  • Lacks innovation in design

It's a sleek little tracker that manages to pack in a bunch of features and all for a reasonable price. It comes with a seriously impressive battery life, GPS, step and sleeping tracker and heart rate monitor. The slim screen and design means it not only works well whilst out running but when at the office in your suit whilst the screen remains easy to read.

If you are looking for a tracker which is totally accurate with excellent metrics then this isn't the one for you but it's a great tracker for your first and to give you a great experience into the world of fitness trackers.

Polar M430

Available from Amazon for around 166.51

  • Battery life is good
  • Accurate and reliable
  • Not the most attractive device
  • Annoying charging lead

It has a lot going for it with GPS, heart rate monitor, sleep tracking and a good battery life. In general, it's accurate and reliable which not all trackers can say that they are.

It has been designed mainly for runners and can monitor your pace, distance, speed and cadence, plus all the general tracker features, you can't go far wrong.

Not the best looking but comfortable and functional.

Garmin Vivosport

Available from Amazon from around 129.99

  • Small for a GPS tracker
  • Decent battery life
  • Bland looking
  • No swim models available

Not as stylish as other trackers but cheaper than most Fitbit products. It comes with built in GPS and offers a great 7-day battery life from a single charge. Although it is waterproof it won't track your swimming easily but for other activities it is really great at tracking your activity - especially jogging and cycling.

Garmin Vivosmart 3

Available from Amazon from around 98.99

  • GPS and heart rate monitor
  • Six day battery life
  • Design is not great
  • Data could be more indepth

On the more expensive side of the fitness trackers but gives you everything you need. This is designed more for gym goers than runners with its heart tracker and fitness age feature.

A great all rounder which if you want something for high end fitness tracking with a week long battery then this is for you.

Garmin Vivofit 3

Available from Amazon from around 58.00

  • Always on display
  • Super long battery life
  • Not the most attractive
  • No phone notifications

This is one of the best fitness trackers that Garmin have created. The super long battery life is one of its best features and makes it really attractive, it means you won't need to charge your device for a whole year.

You will however miss out on phone notifications but there are some great tracking features which you can also see via the always on display.

Fitbit Charge 2

Available from Amazon from around 89.99

  • Comfortable strap
  • Big screen display
  • No GPS
  • Limited phone notifications

A bit more expensive than any of the Fitbit models but if you are looking to go jogging this is a great choice as won't cost you as much as a traditional running watch.

Connecting to the GPS on your phone, it monitors your heart rate via a large screen and will also display data from your previous Fitbit Blaze.

Not the cheapest but the best Fitbit tracker on the market.

Fitbit Blaze

Available on Amazon from around 138.99

  • Interesting fitness features
  • Brilliant battery life
  • Strange design which won't suit everyone
  • Lacking in notifications

If you want a fitness tracker that looks more like a watch, then this is the one for you. A bit of a strange looking device but a lot of people love it. It comes with an automatic fitness tracker making it easy just to jump straight into an exercise and just wait for the data to come flooding in.

Complete with a good battery and a plethora of features, this is a really great option.
