Keep tabs on your heartrate without needing a chest strap – this fitness tracker and smartwatch has HR sensors built right in. It’s also Bluetooth Smart compatible to sync up with your phone. A discrete vibration alert indicates an hour of inactivity, incoming texts, emails or calls. Just touch and swipe the screen to display more info, along with stats like total steps taken, distance travelled or calories burned. Once the Vivosmart learns your current activity level, it creates daily goals and gradually adjusts them upward as you reach milestones. Wear it 24/7 to track your stats, monitor your sleep, and prompt you to move if you’ve been sitting still for too long. Via the Garmin Connect software, you can see your progress and compete with your friends.
