Activity Trackers, also known as Fitness Trackers, are just becoming a legitimate means with which to track one’s exercise regiment or daily calorie burn through basic movement. The emerging wearable computing market, in the form of smartwatches and smart glasses, has proven to developers and manufacturers that consumers are seeking to make biometric monitoring and tracking even more convenient than it already is. Fitness technology aficionados no longer want to be tethered to computer databases or web browsers for simple activity tracking, but prefer enhanced intelligent accessories that automatically monitor and upload biometric data to the proverbial cloud for future review and analysis. We want cutting edge tech, but we don’t want to be encumbered by it and we don’t want to waste time offloading data from our wearable sensors. Therefore, activity trackers are becoming popular devices for seamlessly capturing distributing exercise related data without being intrusive.

This page is intended to provide a comprehensive list of activity trackers that are currently in development, that are currently available, and that have entered End of Life (EOL). Links to articles and reviews are also provided for your convenience. If you are aware of any activity trackers that are not currently on this list, please contact us and we will be sure include them.

What is an activity tracker/fitness band?

An activity tracker, or fitness band, is a wearable computing device typically in the form of a fitness band that contains biometric and/or motion sensors. Early activity trackers had limited functionality and were generally limited to performing electronic pedometers. Modern devices typically contain enhanced biometric sensors enabled to monitor and store heart rate, galvanic skin response, skin temperature, heat flux, sleep patterns, and movement employing high precision 3-axis accelerometers. As components continue to shrink, the potential for what can be squeezed into these wrist-borne wearable computing devices is limitless.
