Fitbit Alta HR

What: At first glance, the Fitbit Alta HR may look every bit like your typical fitness tracker, with its OLED screen set on a sporty black and blue band, but don’t be quick to dismiss it. The silicone band can actually be switched for stylish pink leather, luxe gold metal or classic stainless steel, meaning this device can be customized to suit almost any occasion. It also has its own designer collections with Tory Burch and Public School, available for purchase on the official website. As for its features, this device has got you covered, from monitoring your heart rate and sleep quality to tracking your steps, distance, calories and active time.

Garmin Vivomove HR

What: A unisex hybrid smartwatch that blends traditional watch design with contemporary fitness tracking, you say? Sounds pretty good to us. Garmin’s latest tracker features a touchscreen with a cleverly disguised display—its precision hands will automatically move away as you swipe to check your messages and monitor your wellness, including heart rate, calories and stress levels. The Vivomove HR comes in either a “Sports” version, which comes in rose gold with a black or white strap, or the “Premium” version, which comes in gold or silver with a leather band.
Price: B7,790 for Sports and B11,790 for Premium

Amazfit

What: This US-hailing fitness tracker could easily be mistaken for a piece of fine jewelry thanks to its sleek wristband and minimal round ceramic tracking unit—a shape inspired by traditional Chinese pendants. The device allows you to record your steps, distance traveled, calories burned and sleep quality, as well as notifying you of incoming calls and daily alarms. Available in two different styles, you can choose between “Moonbeam”, a white ceramic shell with a gold metal frame and white leather wristband, or “Equator,” where the shell is encased in either matte black or white and attached to a slim band with rose gold accents.

The watch is waterproof up to 50 meters and the battery can last up to 25 days. As with so many of today’s smartwatches, you can easily customize the device with silicone, leather or woven straps to match different outfits.

Another key feature of the Mi Band 3 is its 5ATM water-resistant rating, making it great for water sports enthusiasts. While there’s nothing too fancy about the customizable silicone strap, the curved OLED touchscreen gives a sophisticated edge to the sporty design.

Designed to be your personal training companion, the device automatically creates seven-day training plans according to your fitness level and overall exercise history. It also comes with a 24/7 activity tracking feature that includes sleep, stress and recovery monitoring. With a slimmer and more polished frame than the bulky Spartan, this smartwatch can easily be worn from gym to office.
