Although it may be a few years old, the Moov Now is still officially our favorite fitness band in the world right now. It's cheap, offers everything you'll want in an everyday tracker and there's a phenomenal six month long battery life.
The Moov Now isn't just designed for step tracking though - it comes with boxing and rep-based training, as well as a swimming mode on top of run coaching and sleep monitoring features. That's a lot to get stuck in with.
You won't get GPS or some of the more complex fitness tracking features that others on this list offer, but if you're looking for a great everyday tracker that doesn't cost a lot of money the Moov Now will suit you perfectly.
2.Apple Watch Series 4 Smartwatch
The Apple Watch Series 4 is the best fitness tracker for most consumers today. It has a elegant design, a large screen, and intuitive user interface. It also has a built-in GPS, so you can precisely keep track of your outdoor activities, and, crucially, an ultra accurate, ECG-capable heart-rate sensor.
With optional cellular connectivity among its key features, the latest Apple Watch allows users to take a break from their iPhone during their workouts. The display of the watch is the best in the business — it's bright and easy to navigate even under direct sunlight.
If you’re looking for a fitness tracker that’s a great compromise between functionality, style, and affordability, the Versa is our pick. It's easy to assume it's intended for women. It's compact, comes in pink, and now features Fitbit's new female health tracking app, which makes it easy and convenient to monitor your menstrual cycle. But anyone can benefit from the Versa's accurate heart rate monitor, step counter, sleep tracker, and long battery life. If you shell out for Fitbit Coach, you can also get personalized training recommendations and access to quick, phone-free workouts.

5.Garmin Vivosmart 4
It tells you how much energy you do (or don’t) have
Screen: Yes | Heart rate tracker: Yes | Waterproof: Yes | Activity tracking: Yes | GPS: No | Battery life: 7 days | Compatibility: Android/iOS
ur highest ranked Garmin product in the best fitness tracker list is also one of the most accomplished in its range of health bands.
This device isn't made for serious athletes like a variety of other products from the Garmin brand, but instead this is for those who want to be able to track the odd bit of exercise and have an attractive band to do it.
The screen is bigger on this version than other Garmin products, and it has a battery that should last you around a week depending on how much exercise you'll be doing.
There's also an innovative feature called body battery that helps you learn when exactly is the best time to exercise depending on how much energy you have. This is great for those who are just as interested in their recovery and general wellbeing as they are clocking up the miles.

7.Xiaomi Mi Band 3
If you're not using your fitness tracker to improve your pacing or find your way home in the woods, you don't need to spend three figures. The Mi Band 3 is a simple, basic fitness tracker that, um, looks a lot like the Fitbit Flex 2 but is half the price. The waterproof tracker unit pops into a comfortable rubber wrist band. It's easy to swipe up and down, or to hold your finger to the indented button to record exercise or take a heart rate measurement. The sleep tracker is extremely optimistic, you can't distinguish between different kinds of exercise, and the app isn't very attractive. But the battery lasts forever.
8.Suunto 3 Fitness Smartwatch
Suunto, which is best known for high-level orienteering equipment, took a stab at a smartwatch for more general exercisers and the result, the 3 Fitness, is a no-frills tracker that offers something for just about everyone, with ability to track dozens of activities and guided training plans. One of the biggest reasons the 3 Fitness works well is the newly-overhauled Suunto smartphone app, which gives more detailed feedback about your workouts than just about any other watch-style tracker.
