Best Fitness Trackers Under $40
When it comes to your personal health journey, a fitness tracker is one of the simplest and easiest ways to manage your progress and efficiency along the road to success. However, with such a wide range of products and brands on the market, deciding which tracker to buy can be extremely complicated. Fitness trackers start as low as $20, with some of the more expensive models being well over $400 – with plenty of high-tech power to justify the extra cost. In this article, we discuss some of the best feature-filled trackers, all ranging in price under $40.
Here Are 5 Main Reasons Why Our Users Bought Their Fitness Trackers:
1-It Will Help You See Hard Data About Your Wellbeing
Staying motivated is the hardest part of personal fitness for a large majority of people. Having hard data about your daily steps, heart health, sleep, and overall wellbeing is an invaluable way to stay focused and motivated to continue your healthy lifestyle.
2-Heart Rate Monitoring
Almost every fitness regimen will benefit from a tracker’s ability to monitor and report a user’s heart rate in real-time, which increases efficiency during exercise and ultimately makes for faster completion of short term health goals.
3-Sleep Pattern Tracking
When it comes to prioritizing important fitness techniques and methods, one of the most significant and often overlooked factors is the quality and length of a person’s sleep. Using a tracker can provide users with advanced statistics about the restfulness and overall quality of their sleeping hours.
4-Competition Is Healthy
Nothing is more fun than a little friendly competition between friends or family. Now, with the advent of personal fitness trackers, you can compete and communicate with your loved ones in new, healthier ways.
5-Builds Lifelong Fitness Habits
Most trackers come equipped with habitual training features, such as a sedentary alarm that will alert users if they’ve been stationary for too long, reinforcing new ideas about how much you should actually be moving each and every day.
HalfSun Fitness Tracker
9.7 / 10
Unsurprisingly, the HalfSun fitness tracker was voted the #1 fitness tracker by our users at Real Reviews. Coming in at just under $40, this activity tracker gives you all the features of the higher-end fitness trackers at a fraction of the cost. The display is large, bright, and provides you with all the information you could need to keep your health and fitness goals on track. For everyday activity, the HalfSun does a great job of monitoring your activities such as steps, distance traveled, and calories burned. It also monitors your sleep and keeps constant track of your heart rate and blood pressure. A built-in sedentary reminder will alert you when it’s time to get up and move.
Two features unique to the HalfSun are the Female Menstruation Period Reminder and Pregnancy Planning App. These are both used for women as a timely reminder of the different physiological states during natural female cycles. Also included with the watch is the ability to connect the HalfSun to your phone so you won’t miss any phone calls or messages. The HalfSun vibrates when you receive any calls, texts, or messages and works with apps such as Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp. If you like to work out in the water, the HalfSun has an IP67 waterproof rating but comes with a bold warning: For best results, users should avoid high-temperature water and deep diving, which is anything greater than 3 meters.
9.4 / 10
At .76inchs, the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker has the smallest display of all trackers tested, but that didn’t stop our editors from choosing this product as their absolute favorite. In fact, the size of the entire unit is probably LETSCOM’s best selling point. Coming in at $32.99, this particular tracker is packed full of features and arguably the best-looking device for fashion-inclined buyers. Just like the Lintelek tracker, LETSCOM offers users a 14 sports tracking mode that allows users to tailor factors and categories that will be tracked when it comes to their fitness. During activities such as walking and running, the tracker connects to the user’s phone GPS to ensure absolute accuracy at all times. Features such as a sleep monitor and heart rate monitor make sure the LETSCOM tracker leaves nothing to be desired that you would find in any other tracker.
For everyday living, the LETSCOM is, without a doubt, the best pick. When paired with your smartphone, you will receive text messages, emails, and social network messages on the color screen of the watch face itself. Sedentary reminders are easy and gentle, meaning you can socialize comfortably without an alarm ringing if you stand still too long. With a rating of IP68, the LETSCOM can be worn in the pool, shower, or during a long run in the rain.
TEAMYO Fitness Tracker
9.1 / 10
Loaded with features, the TEAMYO Tracker offers the largest display of all the trackers reviewed. With a 1.14-inch color screen, two-tone strap, and chrome-like watch bezel, this tracker is both easy to read and incredibly stylish to wear around. Tracking your deep sleep and light sleep times is easy to do as it will automatically start the night as long as you fall asleep with it on. As a heart-rate and blood pressure monitor, the TEAMYO fitness tracker provides a 24/7 real-time continuous heart-rate/blood pressure and blood oxygen monitor function, all viewable through the use of their “H band” app on your phone.
Lintelek Fitness Tracker
9.0 / 10
The Lintelek Fitness tracker comes in at the lowest price at $30.98 but packs quite a powerful punch in value for such a small price tag. For example, the screen is a .96 OLED- which is the newest and most beloved high definition video technology. The software does not cut any corners either; there are 14 sports modes available for users to choose from. As with most other fitness trackers, the Lintelek will also tell you heart rate and sleep data.
One feature that makes the Linetelek an excellent watch for everyday use is the ability to use the watch as a remote camera. Shake your hand, and in 3 seconds, your phone will take a photo, making it easier to get that ever so challenging group photo. The fitness tracker will also notify you via buzz when you get a call or message. Unfortunately, most users reported that they could only see part of the message on their Lintelek, and still needed to open their phone to read a text or answer a call.
