Get up and get moving! If you’re looking to step up your fitness game, or just need a little reminder to help keep you on track, a fitness tracker can hold you accountable (Quite literally, as some will sound an audible alert after an hour of doing nothing). There are quite a few options, from sleek designs to jewelry-esque. Check out our picks below. Whether you’re looking for something to monitor your heart rate during intense exercise, or track your sleep pattern while you snooze, our round up has you covered.
