We all like moving, or at least, we think that we like moving. The problem is that when we move, we often want to reach a certain goal. That is quite alright, but not if the goal is unrealistic or if we must move to reach a certain goal.
Gadgets that track motion are pretty good, however, we should not put all our attention into them, but rather into ourselves, the way we spend our time and how well we move. It is not just about doing but the quality of what you’re doing.
That being said, our world is full of great gadgets and the following ones are good at tracking our steps!
Garmin Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar
Garmin has a history of making great navigation devices and definitely great fitness devices, for cycling, running and nowadays, all activities. Garmin is great when it comes to the hardware. The Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar is a fitness watch which has everything you want in a fitness device, sports, an altimeter, multi band GPS, music without using the phone or the internet, a touchscreen, solar charging, sapphire glass. It’s a very expensive pedometer, by the way, but a great present if you know someone who is a fitness freak and loves multisports and gadgets. An alternative is the Garmin Epix which has an AMOLED screen, which is even better for modern gadget lovers.
Fitbit Versa 3
On to more realistic choices, the Versa 3 is an actual tracker and not an investment worth a used car. It is more suited to simply tracking your fitness goals, rather than tracking your entire health and other parameters you might not have known you have in your body.
Its battery life is about a week long for average users, you have NFC and a microphone to answer your calls or use popular assistants. It’s a great tracker that costs 3 to 4 times less than the Garmin, but has fewer features.
Oura Ring Gen 3
No need to wear it on your wrist when it fits on the finger. The Oura Ring Gen 3 is a smart ring?! Yes, it tracks your heart rate, sleeping, recovery, as well as things such as oxygen blood levels and more. It’s a great product that costs around 299 dollars, the problem being that you have to pay for a subscription afterwards, which is absolutely shameful, given that you’ve already purchased a device. The only benefit to it is the size, which will be appealing to some people.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
It’s cheaper than most smart watches, it has a decent heart monitor and it integrates with Android devices seamlessly. You can have android apps on it and basically do everything from it that you would from a phone, which is a really good thing. The battery life is horrific, about a day for power users, or even less, but you still get a very good smartwatch and fitness watch for the money.
Coros Pace 2
This is a serious watch from a serious sports wearable company. Coros is one of those companies that makes great watches, but also great fitness trackers, believe it or not. They also endorse the one and only Kilian Jornet, known for running up Matterhorn and Everest, for the thrill of it.
All of these watches and fitness trackers will do a great job of tracking your steps.
