Best Mid-Priced Fitness Activity Tracker Band
- As accurate as chest strap monitor, stethoscope, and BP monitor
- Compatible with a lot of fitness apps (S-Health, DigiFit, Wahoo Fitness, Runkeeper, Strava, MapMyFitness, and many more)
- More compact than chest strap monitors without sacrificing consistency
Delivers all the features you need from a workout band, easy to sync with Bluetooth devices, accuracy comparable to chest strap HR monitors, and comfortable and lightweight.
Not 100% accurate with high intensity workouts as the band takes a long time to dry.
This looks like any other wokrout watch, but without the watch face. Instead, it has a RHYTHM+ heart rate monitor that streams your workout data directly to your smartphone. This means you won't get real-time info on your workout, but thanks to the multiple app compatibility, you'll have no trouble examining your workout data on your smartphone. For those who want to track their heart rate and performance but hate chest straps, this is the model for you!
This bad boy comes with all the features you need to stay on top of your workout: highly accurate heart rate monitor, calorie counter, distance and pace recorder, and more. It doesn't have a lot of extra features, but is a simple, reliable model with an emphasis on heart rate monitoring. You'll find that it DOES have a beautiful dual-mode processor that allows you to transmit your workout data to multiple ANT+/Bluetooth-enabled devices, perfect for working with a trainer. With an 8-hour battery life, it's capable of handling any workout/training session!
What makes this such a good choice is the fact that it's fairly inexpensive--just $80! For that price, you get a highly accurate, durable, comfortable tracking device that has a good range of features. Definitely a good option for those who don't want to spend a small fortune on a fancy model.
