Five wearables that help you stay true to your fitness goals

Garmin Vivoctive 3

Price: Rs 24,990

This watch won’t win any beauty contests while it’s off. But wear it on your wrist and you will be blown by the level and quality of read-outs the tiny but brilliant screen provides. While this isn’t a smartwatch in the strictest sense, this does qualify as the ultimate watch in the market.

This smartwatch looks and feels like a watch and has all the good things of the Gear S3, including the rotating bezel user interface I love. The metal ring adds character. Besides notifications and health tracking, it supports Samsung Pay and has a long battery life.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro

Price: Rs 13,590

This band isn’t cheap and the setup process could be simpler. Yet I love its screen and the coolness factor it brings when you have one of these on your wrists.

There are more apps pre-installed than its plainer version. While swim tracking is supported, the weather didn’t let me test it out.

Price: Rs 4,495

Who says bands can’t look good? This one from the watch major is available with leather and silicon straps. But it falls short where it matters. tracking is inaccurate; there’s no heartbeat tracker either. And doesn’t work well with iOS.

Mi Band HRX edition

Price: Rs 1,299

The cheapest of the lot isn't a lightweight in terms of functionality. A decent enough tracker that also displays notifications, this one lacks the heartbeat tracker that the more expensive Mi Band 2 feature. But for those who want an inexpensive but functional tracker, this provides the best bang for the buck.
