Summer is almost over, but you've worked so hard to build that beach body of yours, it would be a shame to destroy it as soon as you put some clothes back on. Thankfully, Fitbit's Inspire HR tracker has just dropped to $80 to help you keep track of your workouts all year long. Read More
In the world of activity trackers, nothing comes close to the Mi Band's value. Cheaper than any Garmin or Fitbit tracker, even the most basic vivofit4 and Inspire, but still packing enough functionality, it also benefits from Xiaomi's name recognition and is considered a serious choice, not a cheap knock-off no-name tracker.
The most recent Mi Band 4 pushes the value-for-money envelop even further thanks to a colored AMOLED screen, swim tracking, and music controls, which get added on top of the previous generation's all-day activity, sleep, and heart rate tracking. Overall, the package is very attractive, but cracks are inevitably hiding below the surface, especially if you like spending your time in a pool. Read More

It’s reasonable to expect a few problems when updating to a new operating system, especially when your routine involves third-party apps and accessories. Given the popularity of smart devices and fitness bands, and how much we tend to rely on these devices, we trust manufacturers to maintain compatibility, but this doesn’t always happen perfectly. In the case of Fitbit, a growing number of users have begun complaining that their units will not sync with Android 9 Pie. Read More
The world of smartwatches is starting to dry up, and as sad as that is, I can't say that I'm surprised. However, there remain a few diamonds in the rough, one of which is on sale over on eBay. The Fitbit Ionic, in all three color variations, is going for $239.99, a nice $60 off.
Fitbit announced two brand-new products today, plus a much-requested additional feature for the Fitbit app. The Fitbit Versa is the company's new flagship smartwatch, something of a replacement for the Ionic. The Ace wristband for kids is essentially a Fitbit Alta for children aged 8+. Plus, for the first time, with an update due in May 2018, the Fitbit app will offer female health features such as period tracking. Read More
If you're looking for a low-maintenance fitness tracker to simply help you count your daily steps as part of your personal fitness goals in 2018, it's probably difficult to justify shelling out for some of the fancier options out there today.
