Xiaomi’s Mi Band is the cheapest wearable tracker you can get that works amazingly well. It does not have a display but syncs all the data to your smartphone app wirelessly. It tracks your steps, distance, calories and even has auto sleep monitoring. You can choose different colours of the band to suit your style and a single charge lasts over a month.

FITBIT BLAZE
Some of us don’t want to have a fitness band as well as a wrist watch—the Fitbit Blaze is the answer to this issue. It is a smartwatch focused on fitness. You get continuous heart rate tracking, colour display, activity and sleep tracking along with dedicated modes for tracking different kind of activities. Battery lasts around 5 days on a single charge.

WITHINGS BODY
This futuristic looking weighing scale uses a technique called biometrical impedance for your body analysis. It comes with the company’s position control technology that guides the user on where and how to stand on the scale so that it can get accurate measurement. It can measure your weight, BMI, fat mass, muscle mass, bone mass, hydration level and then store it in separate profiles for up to 8 different users. All the data is synced wirelessly to the Withings Health Mate app (iOS and Android) automatically making it easy to keep track of any changes on a day to day basis.

WITHINGS WIRELESS BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR
As the name suggests, this is a blood pressure monitor that automatically syncs your blood pressure results with the Withings smartphone app. Using the monitor is very easy—just slip-on the monitor on your arm and it will automatically launch the Health Mate app on your smartphone which will give you step by step instructions on how to properly measure your blood pressure. The synced data to the app is then shown in an easy to understand chart.

GOQII
Goqii deserves a special mention for creating an entire ecosystem around tracking health and fitness along with a personal coach service. The company works on the model of charging subscription for their coach service and provides the fitness tracking band for free. You get a sleep fitness band with an OLED display and a battery life of up to 14 days.

All the data collected by the fitness band in terms of activities and sleep is synced with the Goqii app where it is analysed by your coach. The coach then identifies areas where you need to focus in order to be healthy and provides regular advice via chat or voice call. They also have a doctor service now available on the app who works with your coach to help you make healthier lifestyle choices.
