Best Fitness Trackers and Smartwatches


Fitness trackers are leveling up and the list of features goes on and on. Read on to find your perfect smartwatch from affordable and streamlined to luxury and super cool. We rounded up the best. 

Oura Ring

Don’t want the entire world to know you track your fitness habits? The Oura ring is award-winning and very non-descriptor. We like how Oura points out doctors take your pulse from the fingertip for accuracy, a selling point we completely overlooked since the fitness tracker market is overrun with wristwatches. 




Key features: 


  • Tracks household chores
  • Comes in four different finishes
  • Accurate heartbeat monitoring
  • Tracks respiration
  • Built with a sensor for body temperature
  • Stores six weeks of data between syncs
  • 1-week battery charge with a quick charge


Things to be aware of: There is no digital face, obviously, which means you need to always use it in conjunction with your devices. It uses a scoring system, to rate three areas of your life. It monitors readiness, sleep, and activity and builds trend reports over time. Read more on their page
