Huawei Band 3 Pro
Bag a cheap deal on the Huawei Band 3 Pro and you’ll be able to enjoy a host of features. The screen looks a treat, there’s on-board GPS along with a pinpoint accurate heart rate tracker, activity tracking and a battery life of 14 days standby. It’ll work in harmony with Android and iOS, while the overall design and feel is one of understated quality.
Honor Band 5
This is a bona fide bargain-basement fitness tracker, which for small change comes packed with quite a lot of decent tech. The design and build is fine, but the likes of a quality screen, heart rate tracker, activity monitoring and waterproof to 5 metres capability means you can use it for swim tracking too. Step and sleep tracking add to the appeal while there’s 14 days or so of low use battery power, which makes it hugely practical.
Xiaomi Mi Band 4
Another cheap-as-chips fitness tracker that comes with a solid AMOLED screen along with battery life of up to 20 days, Bluetooth, compatibility with iOS and Android plus the ability to fend off water. The device is reasonably good on the eyes, it’s very light and allows you to check your fitness levels using a variety of workout options.
Garmin Vivofit 4
Garmin’s glorious little Vivofit 4 boasts an always-on colour display and despite that the battery life is one whole year. The slimline design is compatible with iOS and Android plus there’s Bluetooth. Features-wise you can keep track of steps, distance, calories and sleep too. There’s no heart rate tracking or GPS, but the price reflects any minor shortcomings. Amazingly, it's still swim-proof too.
Honor Band 5 Sport
If you're a runner on a budget then chase down the Honor Band 5 Sport. There’s a simple screen and, although you don't get heart rate monitoring or GPS, it is possible to keep tabs on run and step tracking while enjoying battery life of up to two weeks. It’s a no frills affair, but the little Honor makes perfect sense as a secondary activity tracking device.
This is a great deal if you want pseudo Apple Watch looks combined with excellent value. It’s got a few of the usual fitness tracking capabilities and also sports battery life of around a month on one charge. The budget wearable also delivers push notifications, has Bluetooth and offers decent though limited workout tracking. Ideal for anyone wanting an Apple Watch, but who can’t afford one.
Samsung Galaxy Fit e
Samsung has done a good job with this, the Galaxy Fit e as it’s definitely cheap, but still manages to squeeze accurate activity tracking, heart rate monitoring and a week’s worth of battery life inside the Android and iOS compatible design. The looks are clean and simple plus it's waterproof too, even though GPS is not a part of the package unfortunately.
Samsung Galaxy Fit
Spend a little bit more and you can bag yourself a bargain on the Samsung Galaxy Fit. This model features a neat looking screen, has a heart rate tracker and can keep you up to date on your activities too. It’s also waterproof, has a battery life of just over a week and works happily with Android or iOS. The lack of GPS is a downside, but there’s still tracking for the likes of running, swimming and cycling. Get a decent deal on it and the Samsung Galaxy Fit is a bit of a steal.
If you like the look of conventional watches with analogue faces then the Withings Move is a great idea. It's got traditional styling but packs in sleep tracking and basic fitness tracking too, plus connected GPS if you want to take your phone on a run for company. Battery life is up to 18 months, which is staggering and it's also waterproof to 50 metres.
Fossil has done a great job with the design and build of the Sport. It looks cool, is lightweight but still manages to feature an awesome AMOLED touchscreen. You get heart rate monitoring, GPS, sleep tracking and smartphone notifications. Battery life is a not bad 24 hours or so and there’s even Google Pay. On top of all that it's water resistant to a very precise 164 feet. So do NOT descend to 165 feet, whatever you do.
