Top 5 Fitness Wearables For Women
In the last few years tech has progressed at a rapid rate in the fitness world. From apps on smart phones to wearable technology products which help you keep track of your health (and life if you choose). Sure, the concept is still fairly new, however it is useful, fun, and now more of a mainstream product as people adopt fitness wearables as a great way of helping them reach their goals.
That said, not all wearables are made with looks in mind and that’s why many women shy away from wearing one. With an eye on looks as well as functionality we’ve rounded up some of the best wearables for the fashion concious girl.
What’s not to love about the Apple Watch? Aside from being a piece of Apple technology, it’s a polished looking customizable smart watch that looks sleek and fashionable on the wrist. It isn’t overly bulky so it also sits quite nicely on smaller wrists. As far as smart watches go it is a little on the pricey side, however it is comes jam packed with lots of goodies, such as a flexible retina display, heart-rate monitor, water-resistant speaker, integration with your iPhone, accelerometer to measure body movement, and much more. It’s not really the choice of fitness nuts, but it can be a nice happy medium which keeps your life in sync, tracks your health and keeps you looking like a girl on a fashionable fitness mission!
The Fitbit Flex is the little sister of the ever popular Fitbit. With a smaller body, sleeker looks and a huge range of colors to choose from, this a great little wearable. It tracks heart rate and the total steps taken in a day, but the most interesting feature is it’s sleep tracking capabilities and silent alarm. Best of all it doesn’t look tacky on your wrist.
