Mag Echo Smart Running Watch 2

Now that the summer months are (theoretically) here, you might be thinking of getting in shape. And what better way to do that than with the latest wearables? We’ve looked at a selection of affordable fitness bands and activity trackers to pick the best one for this summer season – assuming it actually gets started.

Milestone Altitude Activity Tracker

Milestone Altitude Activity Tracker

RRP: £34.99 / Deal Price: £21.29 One of the cheapest activity trackers around, the Milestone Altitude tracks steps taken and distance travelled, and uses them to give you an estimated number of calories burned as well. There are two modes – sleep and day – and it also comes with a silent vibrating alarm to gently wake you up in the morning. It’s waterresistant for outdoor use, and its app is compatible with iOS 7.0+ and Android 4.3+. Bargain.

Jawbone UP2 Activity Tracker

Jawbone UP2 Activity Tracker

The Jawbone UP2 activity tracker doesn’t have a screen, but it does have three single-colour LEDs, which can be used for notifications and alerts. There are three levels of sleep-tracking included and activity tracking includes steps, distance, calorie estimation and more. The built-in smart coach app also helps you personalise your training and activity goals so you’re always getting the best advice for you!

 Acer Liquid Leap Smart Activeband

Acer’s Liquid Leap smartband includes a 2.4cm touchscreen so you can use it independently of your phone, but it also allows you to operate your phone from
the band, including checking your email, controlling your music and triggering your camera. It does both sleep and activity tracking and it’s waterproof, so the only time you’ll have to remove it is when it’s being charged. A great all-rounder, especially at this price.

FitBit Flex Activity Tracker

FitBit Flex Activity Tracker (2)

Fitbit are pretty much the kings of mid-to-high priced activity tracking, and the FitBit Flex remains one of the best examples of its kind. You get a five-LED display, which can display progress towards and number of goals, wireless syncing with your phone or other Bluetooth device, sleep tracking and alarms and the usual set of activity stats tracked. The app also allows you to log food and workouts for a complete all-in-one health tracking solution.

Mag Echo Smart Running Watch

Mag Echo Smart Running Watch

Although it looks like a smart watch, the Mag Echo is really more of a watch-shaped fitness band, since it doesn’t run apps; it’s all about tracking your movement. It does have a watch mode, but a few presses of a button gets you access to sleep-tracking, steptracking, distance-tracking and features commonly associated with running watches, like timers and lap counters. Unlike most trackers, this one uses a standard watch battery, so you don’t have to charge it and can get over six months without needing a replacement!
