Best for Everyday Use: Fitbit Alta
(starting at B5,289)
This lightweight and simply designed version of the Fitbit is geared to meet the basic needs of an average person rather than advanced athletes. The device tracks steps, distance traveled, calories burnt and sleep activity, with a useful movement reminder to ensure regular activity. Plus, its sleek look and customizable bands come in a variety of colors, meaning it doesn’t look half bad as a fashion accessory either.

Best for Serious Runners: Garmin Vivosmart HR+
(starting at B8,590)
If you’re someone who takes running seriously, this device sets the bar high when it comes to accuracy in step, distance and activity tracking thanks to its highly accurate built-in GPS. It also comes with a goal-setting feature that pushes you to better results, plus a 24-hour heart rate monitor and sleep tracker. While it doesn’t have a swimming mode, it will remain waterproof to 60 meters.
Best for Style: Fitbit Blaze
(starting at B7,990)
As the biggest challenge to Apple’s Smartwatch, this device holds all the same features, including calling, texting, music control and a large color touchscreen, with the main difference being a quality activity tracker that knocks Apple’s out the window. On top of that, the changeable bands, which range from plastic to leather straps, mean that it doubles up as a stylish watch you can wear from the meeting room to the dinner table.
