This model also includes a barometric altimeter for tracking elevation during walks, hikes or hill repeats. The Watch is available in a Wi-Fi model which piggybacks on your phone for alerts but uses the built-in GPS for location tracking. There’s also a GPS + Cellular version that connects to a wireless provider and can operate independently of your iPhone. You will need to pay for a data plan from your carrier for the cellular version, and it usually amounts to $10 or less a month.

Fitbit Charge 2
The Fitbit Charge 2 is one of Fitbit’s more aesthetically-pleasing devices blending both fitness with fashion in the wrist-based tracker. Besides looking good on your wrist, the Fitbit Charge 2 covers all the bases for fitness tracking. It tracks steps taken, heartbeats per minute, distance traveled, calories burned, floors climbed, minutes you were active, and more. It monitors your heart rate throughout the day and during workouts. The tracker then uses this heart rate data along with your workout stats to calculate your Cardio Fitness Score, which is Fitbit’s version of VO2 Max.
More than a tracker just for fitness, the Charge 2 has wellness features like guided breathing sessions to help you relax. The Charge 2 also tracks your sleep each night and syncs this data to the Fitbit app on your mobile device. The Fitbit app compiles all your wellness and workout data and presents it in a way that is easy to understand. You can use the app to improve your fitness level, lose weight and make sure you are getting enough rest and relaxation every day. Amazon has slashed the price of the tracker from $150 to
