If you’re looking for the best way to lose weight, or you want to figure out how to reduce belly fat, then you may have considered taking on a personal trainer in London, and investing in a modern fitness tracker to help keep you on the road to success. Unfortunately, the only problem is that there are so many different fitness trackers available on the market today, that choosing the ideal one can be incredibly difficult.
What’s more, finding the right fitness tracker for your need isn’t just about selecting the right brand, it’s also about considering your own personal needs, from sleep tracking to step counting. As technology in the world of sports and health continues to evolve, the new sensors and tech that exist on fitness trackers today, from continuous heart rate monitoring to smartwatch notifications, there are plenty of features to choose from.
Following are some of the best fitness trackers to hit the market of 2016, designed to help you choose the perfect band for your workout needs.
1. Jawbone UP2
Although the Jawbone UP2 may fall short of the advanced fitness skills that some other bands offer, it’s an incredibly good looking, comfortable, and accurate way to add something to many weight loss programs. This device offers everything from sleep monitoring to activity tagging, and the smart alarm helps to provide a dream-suite of incredible features so that you’ll never be left wondering what you should be amazed at next. For beginners, the UP2 may be a better solution than some alternative big brothers to this particular fitness band, because it’s an incredibly wearable option available at an affordable price.
2. Polar M400
Designed to offer a simple and easy way to monitor fitness, the Polar M400 pairs with your smart phone to ensure that you can not only track your activities and monitor your heart rate for optimum training, but stay connected to income texts and calls too! The M400 is a great way to stay in shape, because it tracks your steps, sleep, and even the amount of calories you consume throughout the day, to ensure every aspect of your fitness regimen is tailored to your personal goals. You can even set your own individual targets and track your progress towards them with the “Polar flow” application.
3. Fitbit Charge HR
Through the technological marvel of continuous heart rate monitoring, the Fitbit Charge HR provides more accurate feedback to fitness fans about their overall health and activity than many of the other bands on the market.

What’s more, the app is incredibly easy to use, which makes it an ideal solution for beginners to the world of tech-fueled fitness.
4. Microsoft Band 2
Microsoft is one of those names that most people already know, but when it comes to fitness trackers, they’re not exactly known for the right reasons. The previous Microsoft band was let down by its design, and the rethink that has come into play on this option has made a significant improvement to the wearability and comfort of the device. What’s more, the spec sheet that comes with this piece of tech is miles ahead of many other fitness trackers, with features like GPS connectivity, notifications, 24/7 heart rate tracking and more!
5. Garmin Vivoactive
An everyday approach to sports technology, the Garmin Vivoactive blends sports and fitness features with plenty of reliable notifications that can connect with your smartphone – all for a reasonable price. It may not be the most attractive ensemble, but that shouldn’t put you off, as there’s plenty of features that make up for it’s less than pretty appearance. When it comes to boosting your weight loss programs, this simple and effective piece of kit could significantly improve your 12 week athletic training program, or your long-term exercise routine.
