The Best Smartwatches & Fitness Trackers for the #Fitspo Squad
Whether you’re a certified gym junkie, general fitness enthusiast or just want to stay healthy, wearables are a great way to smash your goals. There are stacks of different smartwatches and fitness trackers claiming to be the perfect partner for you, but which ones are head and shoulders above the rest? We’ve picked our top fitness trackers below to help you run, lift, push, squeeze, stretch and gasp your way through every workout. Yesterday, you said you’d start tomorrow – so what are you waiting for? We’ll see you on the track in the Botanic Gardens (look for the jogger collapsing after the first hundred metres 😓).
Apple Watch SE: For the Budget-Conscious
For a wearable that has plenty of great features, isn’t too hard on the wallet and pairs perfectly with an Apple iPhone, the Apple Watch SE is an easy choice. Though its S5 chip is older than the Series 6 and lacks the always-on display, the Watch SE comes with many features you’ll find on the more premium model but at a more affordable price. Get creative with the watch face, color and band style to create your own look!
Apple Watch Series 6: For the High Achiever
The latest Apple Watch to land in Singapore is the Series 6, a cutting-edge wearable with loads of features for health, fitness and entertainment. The watch supports more precise metrics for tracking your workout – with a new sensor that measures your blood oxygen level and even takes ECGs. Want to sport a sleek Nike band? Opt for the Apple Watch Nike edition and get the Nike+ Run Club app pre-installed.
Galaxy Fit 2: For the Tech-Loving Swimmer
The Galaxy Fit 2 is the perfect budget-friendly Samsung watch for tracking your health and fitness, putting a range of features on your wrist in a light, compact and comfortable device. The battery can last a couple of weeks with normal use, while its 5ATM water resistance rating means you can swim laps with confidence. With automatic workout detection, you can focus on the challenge at hand!
Galaxy Watch Active: For the Trendsetter
If you prefer a wearable that looks more like a fashion statement, the Galaxy Watch Active is a great step up from the Fit 2. Packed with fitness features and the benefits of a smartwatch, it’s the perfect companion for every workout and comes with a range of cool apps to take advantage of. The embedded eSIM means you can leave your Samsung phone behind and still track your movement, listen to music and check messages as long as you have a data connection.
Galaxy Watch 3: For the Minimalist
The Watch3 is the pick of the bunch when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Watch family, with a big display tastefully nestled into a slim and compact frame. It’s the most advanced Samsung watch and has stacks of apps and features, while the versatile design lets you choose between a traditional watch face or a more modern, smartphone-like appearance.
Mi Smart Band 6: For the Marathoner
The Mi Smart Band 6 is Xiaomi’s entry-level fitness tracker, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s cheap and shoddy. The compact 1.56-inch AMOLED display, colorful strap choices and 5ATM water resistance rating make this the perfect choice for those in Singapore who just want a light and comfortable wearable that helps you maintain health and fitness and get the most out of every workout.
Mi Watch Lite: For the Cardio Kid
For those who don’t need the fanciest gadgets but still want the benefits of a smartwatch, the Mi Watch Lite strikes an ideal balance of form and function. This stylish Xiaomi watch has 11 workout modes, 5ATM water resistance, health monitoring tools and GPS positioning to help measure distance, speed and calories burned. You can also use the Mi Watch Lite to control music and view calls, texts and notifications, making it a great pairing with a Xiaomi phone.
Mi Watch: For Those Who Want-it-All
The ultimate Xiaomi smartwatch for health, fitness and productivity. The Mi Watch brings together Xiaomi’s most advanced features in a lightweight 32g design featuring an always-on AMOLED display and stylish options for the watch face and strap. The battery can last up to 16 days with regular use and a bunch of different workout and sport modes tailors the tracking and display to match any workout. What’s more, you can choose from a variety of watch face styles to suit your taste.
