Activity trackers have quietly taken over the market, and Samsung is one of the companies that have participated in the trend. Activity trackers are those things that you see people wear on their wrists–not quite watch but not quite fashion accessory. Most people wear activity trackers nowadays even when they’re not doing an activity. It turns out that companies such as Samsung has been manufacturing trackers that are stylish enough to be worn as a watch, but they’re still functional enough to be worn as an exercise accessory. Samsung has quite a list of activity trackers to choose from, and we’ve listed some of them here in no particular order.
Samsung GearFit2 Pro
If you’re looking for a watch that you never have to take off, this would be it. Samsung has created a really powerful product here. The GearFit2 Pro never stops monitoring your heart rate. If you need this done constantly, you really should be wearing this tracker. Otherwise, there are plenty of other benefits for you to be had. This watch features quite a few useful Under Armour apps that you can use while you’re working out or when you’re not. The built-in GPS helps this watch track your activities accurately, but the best feature is yet to come. With a capability of water resistance of up to 50 meters, you can actually swim with this device. Imagine all the triathlons you’d be able to track. Now it’s only a matter of being able to do a triathlon that’s in the way.
Sometimes all you need is the most basic. If you’re looking for just a basic wireless tracker, this one will be perfect for you. However, don’t let that fool you. This simple tracker is powerful enough to track the essentials. The Samsung S5 is capable of monitoring your calories, steps, distances, and fitness. It can even monitor your sleep efficiency. Truly if not any of those, what else do you really need to monitor? This device can be worn with a wristband of it can be attached to your clothing using a special pin. The S5 also syncs up to a compatible device (Android) via Bluetooth. This tracker can go on for 5 days without recharging–that alone is a benefit that’s hard to beat.
Samsung Charm Lifestyle
For those who truly want to be tracking their activities inconspicuously, the Charm Lifestyle is a way to go. No other tracker out there can be as stylish as this one. Working with the Samsung S app that you’d have to download onto your Samsung or Android device, the Samsung Charm Lifestyle can monitor your steps, distances, and the amount of calories you’ve burned daily. One other feature that this tiny tracker provides you is the notification capability. The tracker will alert you if you were getting a phone call or text messages. Of course if you’d rather not, you can easily turn off this notification setting.
Samsung Gear Fit
This was the original fitness watch that Samsung released as predecessor to the great GearFit2. The original Gear Fit is still great in comparison, even though it might not have the same bells and whistles as the second one. With a slimmer look and feel, some people might actually prefer this one over the GearFit2. This one also constantly monitors your heart rate and other data while you work out: the usual steps, distances, calories, etc. The display itself is unique, as it looks like a real tracker instead of an actual watch. It’s also got a fairly unisex design, so you and your partner can match while wearing the same activity tracker.
Samsung Gear Sport Fitness
One of the most expensive activity trackers that Samsung has, the Gear Sport will give you exactly what its name implies: athletic-level tracking. It tracks your fitness and diet; it’s the ultimate assistant to achieving your fitness needs. It even offers you tips along the way to help you improve. This tracker is also stylish enough; you can change the straps if you wish. You can connect this to an app on your phone where you can set goals to achieve. The watch will then help you monitor these goals to fulfillment, and at that time, you can create a new goal to work towards. It’s a great tool to have and to be able to wear it on your wrist is just an added plus.
