Activity trackers

Activity trackers

Activity trackers, fitness bands and sleep trackers have become all of the rage of the past 24 months. These affordable pieces of fitness technology help you to measure your daily behaviours in order to make better informed decisions around your health, fitness and diet. In many ways, they are the 2014 version of the pedometer, but this ‘smart’ technology offers much more. One things for sure, there’s plenty of choice in this sector. Brand new companies have emerged out of crowd funding sites like Kick-starter, whilst the big companies, from sports apparel giants like Nike and Adidas, through to big tech companies like TomTom and Garmin, are all in on the game. We help you cut through the clutter, in order to find the best activity tracker for your needs. We’ve got plenty of fitness band reviews, as well as opinion pieces around trackers and the latest news and rumours around upcoming releases.
