Smart­phones are no longer enough. Tech­nol­o­gy is get­ting small­er and more portable. Rel­e­vant for those who lead at least a lit­tle active lifestyle and pre­fer light­ness to an extra object in their hands. In the TV series “Black Mir­ror” there were implant chips that made it pos­si­ble to track all the phys­i­cal indi­ca­tors of a per­son dur­ing sports. In our real­i­ty, they are being replaced by wear­able gad­gets — a thing that is safer and far from turn­ing peo­ple into androids. We made a rat­ing of the best mod­els for mon­i­tor­ing the state of your body in train­ing and not only.

Fit­ness bracelet for those who play sports at an ama­teur lev­el. Morn­ing jogs, yoga, brisk walk­ing, and trav­el­ing up the stairs when the ele­va­tor is bro­ken are enough func­tions for such cas­es.

On a small, only 0.96 inch­es (for com­par­i­son, the max­i­mum diam­e­ter of the mod­els in our rat­ing is 1.62), the screen will be able to track sleep indi­ca­tors, calo­ries burned, pulse and pres­sure. Stan­dard things that you think of when you hear “fit­ness bracelet”, and noth­ing more. With active use, the watch will last a week — all this thanks to a rel­a­tive­ly pow­er­ful bat­tery and a small num­ber of func­tions.

The bracelet is com­pat­i­ble with IOS and Android smart­phones: it will noti­fy the own­er of incom­ing calls and mes­sages, wake up in the morn­ing and help mon­i­tor email. If the car­ing bracelet notices that you have been sit­ting too long in one place, it will remind you of the need to warm up.

Bakeey ID115 Plus is unlike­ly to bring sig­nif­i­cant changes to your life, but it will help you become more atten­tive to the needs and con­di­tion of your body.

Pros of Bakeey ID115 Plus:

  • ease of use — with a touch screen and a calm col­or scheme, it will be dif­fi­cult to get lost;
  • price-qual­i­ty ratio — counts steps, calo­ries, eval­u­ates phys­i­cal activ­i­ty and sleep qual­i­ty for less than two thou­sand rubles;
  • rel­a­tive­ly high pro­tec­tion class — IP67 allows the watch to be under water for about 30 min­utes and be com­plete­ly dust­proof.

Cons of Bakeey ID115 Plus:

  • not suit­able for those who are active­ly involved in sports — there are no train­ing pro­grams, a timer and a stop­watch;
  • the absence of a gyro­scope — a sen­sor that allows the device to dis­tin­guish dif­fer­ent types of walk­ing from run­ning and cor­rect­ly count calo­ries.

iWOWN i6HR — continuous operation in any weather

iWOWN i6HR is suit­able for those who love out­door work­outs. Pho­to: fotosklad.ru

It will help to plan the day and prop­er­ly dis­trib­ute phys­i­cal activ­i­ty. The fit­ness bracelet has a func­tion of rest reminders and self-set­ting of var­i­ous tasks. The qual­i­ty of sleep, calo­ries burned, pulse, pedome­ter — every­thing is up to stan­dard and a lit­tle more. So, a fit­ness bracelet will help you find a lost smart­phone, if, of course, the devices are paired, and it will gen­er­ate a dai­ly report on phys­i­cal activ­i­ty.

The smart bracelet will be able to work in frost: the min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture at which it can be used is ‑20 degrees Cel­sius. In the heat, the watch will not get heat­stroke — the max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture is +60 degrees Cel­sius.

  • con­stant­ly works — mon­i­tors the state of your body, even when you are rest­ing;
  • the abil­i­ty to change straps.

Cons of iWOWN i6HR:

  • small bat­tery capac­i­ty — from 75 mAh it can only work up to five days;
  • heavy — weighs almost 18 grams, when the light­est rat­ing bracelet is 13.5 grams.
