Fitness trackers are getting more powerful, and while the Fitbit Charge 4 is our new best fitness tracker, there are cheaper devices out there.
There are some brilliant fitness trackers available for cheap prices – and more that offer technology like heart rate monitoring, detailed sleep tracking and even waterproof for swimming.
But there’s still huge variations in the quality of data you get – so choosing the right fitness tracker app is just as important as what goes on your wrist. Fitbit trackers and Garmin watches lead the way here.
But there’s also price to consider. Fitness trackers generally aren’t expensive and if you’re just looking to make sure your getting enough steps every day, there’s no need to spend over $40.
Update: This article was renewed in April 2020 to reflect testing of the new Fitbit Charge 4. The Charge 3 was removed.
