13 Best Fitness Trackers (2021): Watches, Bands, Rings, and more
Like every piece of the equipment you wear on your body every day, fitness trackers are incredibly personal. Not only do they need to be comfortable and attractive, but they also need to shape your lifestyle, as well as when and how you want to exercise. Do you bike, line up, or train for strength? Do you run the trails for hours every hour, or do you want a reminder to get up every hour?
No matter what your needs are, there has never been a better time to find a powerful, sophisticated tool that can help you optimize your workout or start your regular activity. We’ve tried a lot of people over the last four years so we can give you these picks. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out our instructions on best smartwatches or best running gear.
Updated August 2021: We took the older picks, added more information, and added new trackers, like Coros Pace 2.
