Don't Love Your Fitbit? Check out These 7 Other Fitness Trackers Instead ...


If you're not a fan of the FitBit, or if you're just wondering what else is out there besides this wearable tracker behemoth, keep reading. I've tried out and tested and otherwise thoroughly researched a few of the other options, and there are so many alternatives to try...

Garmin Vivosmart

Garmin Vivosmart This is my personal favorite fitness band. I love that the display is totally invisible until you give it a tap (or until you get an alert). I also love that after one hour of inactivity (for example, sitting on your butt watching Orange is the New Black), you get a little ping to remind you to get up and move a little.


Jawbone UP24

Jawbone UP24 If you want a fitness tracker that will also monitor your sleep, this might be the band for you. It also gives you a little alert when you've been idle too long, and it's available in six colors and three sizes.


Mio Fuse

Mio Fuse Most heart rate monitors require a chest strap, but not the Mio Fuse! You can also use the Fuse to track your steps, pace, distance, and calories burned.


Basis Peak

Basis Peak Some people use these trackers for fitness alone, while others use them to monitor their sleep, too. But the Basis also helps manage stress, which is, of course, just taking your fitness goals one step further. How cool is that?


Runtastic Orbit

Runtastic Orbit If you're a runner, chances are, you've already used the Runtastic app on its own. Now there's a fitness tracker that syncs with the app, giving you even more information for each run.


Misfit Flash

Misfit Flash Some of these trackers seem so complicated! If you want something a little less complex, but still just as helpful, try the Misfit Flash. Side note: it's also a little bling-ier (with some customization options), in case you're as into sparkle and shine as much as feeling the burn.


Polar M400

Polar M400 Perhaps what you need is a little more running intensity, and not as many silly bells and whistles. This little watch-style tracker pushes you hard, and I love it!

See? There are loads of fitness trackers besides the ubiquitous FitBit! Do you use any of these? Or are you hooked on another wearable tracker?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Garmin Vivoactive is my fave! It has a multitude of features and You can swim with it too!

I've only ever used the Up band, and mine's the model from when it was introduced a while back so it's considered old lol

I love my FitBit Flex! The sleep tracking feature is awesome (it tells you how restless your sleep was, how many times you woke up, etc.). There's also a feature for keeping track of what you're eating daily. You can also challenge your friends to daily or weekly competitions! Oooh, you can wear it in the rain or in the shower too with no problems. As you can tell, I really like it haha!

Would have been nice if it included prices and pros and cons, all you're doing is getting these brands trafficking on their websites.

My mom and I just got a Fitbit and we are looking forward to use it. It tracks miles, distance, calories burned and sleeping.

My fit bit charger is amazing

Anyone have the Nikefuel band? X

I have jawbone it's awesome
