Perhaps you think to give one of these intelligentsia or track the activity as a gift, but you are not sure which one is best for your final gym. Consumer Reports is here with some easy shopping tips to help you make the right choice.
If you just want something that will count the steps, perhaps tracking the heart rate, the fitness tracker probably covers what you need. If you want to do more reading of emails, if you want the latest sports scores, time, you might want to look at intelligence. Some tracking devices may also have text and call notifications.
CR experts say you need to think about how technology understands the person who will use it. Many bells and whistles will not mean much if you do not know how to use them. The good thing about devices that do not do that much is often much easier to use. Fitness trackers are a good example of this. Easily pair up, count the steps, monitor heart rate, even monitor your sleep. And you really do not have to do much.
When it comes to charging, fitness trackers will continue for days while some smartwatches have to be charged every night. But during the day, smart mobile services allow you to leave your phone in your pocket or even at home. This comes at a price. Not only is the watch worth more, you will have to pay the operator more for this privilege.
For Smart Window, Consumer Reports recommends the Apple Watch Series 4. And for a fitness workout, CR likes Fitbit Charge 3.
