Blending fashion and functionality, these brand new trackers are setting their sights on the cool, health-focused wellness set that are always on the go. But don’t expect to see your usual tracking bracelet; instead, the pieces are slim, incredibly light, and sit pretty on the wrist. And after road testing them, it’s safe to say that they get our everyday and runway tick-of-approval.
“One of the first things we learned in this industry is that fitness is personal – and if something isn’t your style, you won’t wear it,” said James Park, CEO and Co-Founder of Fitbit.
What to expect from Fitbit’s new fashion-forward range:
1The Fashion Experience
Featuring a sleek stainless steel pebble that can be personalised to fit your style with interchangeable bands of varying colours and materials, the Fitbit Alta will easily take you from Vinyasa to the office. It automatically tracks your usual Fitbit stats including steps, calories burned, sleep, distance travelled, and overall active time, but perhaps the most innovative (and convenient) feature is Reminders to Move, which nudges you to stay active throughout the day. Sitting for long periods is not a good look, so we found that a little extra push to clock those steps doesn’t go astray.
2The Fitness Experience
Similarly, the Fitbit Blaze offers an enhanced fitness experience with advanced fitness coaching, and the smart features you need to stay connected. We’re talking all-day activity tracking, call, text and calendar alerts, on-screen FitStar workouts as well as silent alarms. This incredibly versatile fitness watch is also as stylish as it is smart. We love the contemporary, oversized design, which can also be customised with different bands and frames, as well as the high-resolution, colour touchscreen.
