Fitbit Blaze uses your heart rate to create a custom breathing program to help you normalize your blood pressure. During the session you are guided with vibrations and on-screen animations that help you align your inhale and exhale. When you’re done, you will receive feedback on how well you followed the instructions. See More
Even if you forget to manually log your workout, the Fitbit Blaze will still give you credit for it. It automatically notices when you are actively moving for more than 10 minutes and adds that time and calories burned to your fitness goals and hourly activity reports. See More
Fitbit Blaze tried to incorporate ready-made workouts to help you stay fit. The exercises are displayed on screen as animations along with a timer, but since you can't adjust them to your pace and no one's giving you any feedback, you never know if you're actually doing them right, or are, in fact, harming yourself.

If you don't like the basic rubber wrist strap the comes with the tracker, you can change out the strap for more premium option for about $30. There are many different styles available including leather, silicone, or stainless steel in a variety of colors. See More
The Fitbit Zip fitness tracker is very small, so you can easily wear it somewhere that it will be hidden (belt, pocket, bra strap, etc.). Unlike most pedometers with wrist bands, you don't have to worry about trying to make it blend in with what you're wearing. See More
The contacts in the device are very sensitive. If you don't place the battery in just right, it will only work for a short period of time before the battery needs to be readjusted or replaced. Even when following instructions provided by the company, some people report that still can't get it working properly. The battery may end up lasting days instead of the promised 4-6 months. You can see how to properly change the battery here. See More
Besides total number of steps, this pedometer records the distance you walked (in miles or kilometers), calories burned (taking into account the number of calories we burn even being inactive), and indicates how close you are to reaching your daily fitness goal with a smiley face. You can disable screens you don’t need in the app. See More
The pedometer can be put in a rubber holder with a clip that you can attach to you belt/pocket. It protects the pedometer against breaking if it falls. It holds the tracker securely, so there is very little chance of it popping out of the rubber case. See More
Fitbit Surge is a good option for avid runners. The wristband is secure and the tracker doesn't fall out. It has a built-in GPS and a heart rate sensor that help to give an accurate estimation of how many calories you burned. It can also withstand bad weather conditions, in case it suddenly starts to rain during your jog. See More
To get the most accurate fitness data, you can input your height and weight into the tracker. It then calculates your stride length and uses it to more precisely record your data - steps total and distance traveled. Alternatively, you can set your stride length manually. See More
Thanks to the tri-axis technology, Omron pedometer accurately tracks your steps regardless of how it’s positioned – vertically, horizontally, or otherwise. You can put it in your pocket or just drop it into your bag or purse and be sure that you get precise fitness stats. See More
If you’re not careful about always having this pedometer in the right position (with the lanyard loop up), it tends to over-count your steps. It starts counting in random motions, jiggles and accidental sways. Keep it attached to your pocket, or bra, to get the best results. See More
