You know, it wasn’t so long ago that fitness trackers were limited to your mum walking in to the living room with a pedometer clipped to her waist saying “Look! It counts your steps! What will they think of next?!”

These days fitness trackers have more functions than a swiss army knife, usually including a heart rate monitor, exercise programs, distance trackers, calorie trackers and many more, all with the intention of improving your health.

More often than not, they’ll use connectivity to your smart phone, meaning you can access data and analysis on your exercise sessions.

Fitness trackers are one of the fastest growing exercise accessories around today. Back in 2011, approximately 14 million people were wearing fitness trackers, with that number predicted to increase to over 170million in the present day.
