AT&T’s stores are filling up with wearables these days. The carrier just announced that it will sell six very popular and intriguing wearables in its stores from June 26, including the Case-Mate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet, Healbe GoBe, Mio FUSE Heart Rate + Activity Tracker, Misfit Flash, Withings Activité, and the Withings Activité Pop.

AT&T already sells a great number of mainstream wearables from Fitbit, Jawbone, Samsung, Timex, and others, but with these six new devices, the carrier has opened up to more unique and lesser known devices. Here’s everything you need to know about each one:

Case-Mate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet – $120

Rebecca-Minkoff-x-Case-Mate-Notification-bracelet

Rebecca Minkoff is well-known for her handbags, shoes, and jewelry — However, her latest project is in wearables. The Case-Mate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet is a piece of smart jewelry that sends notifications to your wrist. It will vibrate for calls and texts from your preferred contacts, so as not to bother you constantly. It has a 30-day battery life, and should blend in with the rest of your jewelry pretty nicely. AT&T will over the bracelet in select stores and online for $120 on June 26.

Healbe GoBe – $300

The Healbe GoBe may very well be the most eccentric piece of tech on this list. It measures caloric intake and burn through three sensors, so that you never have to log another meal into a food tracking app again — at least theoretically. It also measures hydration, stress, sleep quality, heart rate, and blood pressure. Digital Trends exclusively reviewed the GoBe before it came to market, and found its tracking to be hit or miss, the battery life poor, and app experience buggy. Of course, Healbe has no doubt fixed the bugs that plagued our early review unit, in order to convince AT&T to carry the device. We’ll post an updated review as soon as we get a GoBe from AT&T. It’ll cost $300 online.

Mio Fuse Heart Rate + Activity Tracker – $150

Mio Fuse

Mio Fuse is a sporty wristband for gym rats who want to track their heart rate during workouts and during the day. It offers EKG-accurate heart rate monitoring through the company’s patented Heart Rate Technology, but it also handles basic metrics like steps, calories, distance, and pace. The Fuse syncs with your phone via Bluetooth to connect with popular fitness apps, GPS watches, and bike computers. Its LED lights will even show you your stats. The wearable tracks 30 hours of exercise data and two weeks of daily activity data, so you can see how you’re doing with your daily regimen over the course of time. It’ll cost $150 on AT&T’s website and in some stores.

Misfit Flash – $50

Misfit-Flash

Misfit’s Flash is one of the most affordable fitness trackers out there. It monitors your activity and sleep, but it can also control your music, tell the time with its LED lights, and control your smart home through IFTTT integration. You can also keep tabs on all your stats through the Misfit dashboard on the Web or in the app on your phone. The Flash’s replaceable battery lasts up to six months before you need to replace it. You can stick the central disc in a number of accessories, and it comes in a variety of fun colors. It’ll be at select AT&T stores and online for $50.

Withings Activité and Pop – $450 or $150

Withings-Activite-press-image

Withings offers two different versions of its semi-smart watch, the Activité. The classic-looking watch uses a Swiss design to hide the high-tech powers it has inside. It not only tracks your activity, sleep, and distance travelled, but also automatically adjusts to time zones. Both the Activité Pop and Activité are waterproof and come with a battery that’s easily replaceable and lasts about eight months. The only real difference between the two is the quality of the strap, metal casing, and the glass dome on the watch, so the Pop is the better deal. The regular Activité is $450, but the Pop is just $150. You can get both at AT&T stores and online on June 26.
