The smart watch movement is taking over people’s wrists lately. It seem like everyone has one of these incredible units to do a variety of different tasks, such as check your email, receive a text, or even track your fitness goals. If you love to count the number of steps you take each day or even go as far as checking your heart rate, then you might want to consider a smart watch model geared towards physical fitness. We have found that there are really so many great ones on the market today that it can be a little hard to choose. Here are the Top 5 smart fitness watches that we love to use that will take your health goals to the next level.
#5: Apple Watch Nike +
Apple is on top of the game with their smart watches. That being said, we’ve found their collaboration with Nike, one of the best makers of athletic apparel and gear, is top notch. Not only does it have an accelerometer (measures movement and acceleration), but it also has a heart rate monitor and GPS. It can record accurate speed, distance, and pace while you are running, biking, or even just walking. Once you download the workout app, you can continuously monitor your heart rate, while you are completing your fitness goals. Sporty and cute, the Apple Watch by Nike is definitely a conversation piece when someone sees this bad boy on your wrist. Keep in mind it is at the high end cost-wise of most other smart fitness watch models, but you do get the cache of having an Apple product. Buy yours at Amazon for around $400.

#1: Fitbit Blaze
Fitbit is the name to know in fitness trackers. That being said they have ventured into smart watch territory with their Fitbit Blaze. Since they are the name to follow in activity trackers, it’s no wonder that their smart fitness watch is equally as good. You can check your heart rate zone with their patented “Pulse Point” monitoring which is continuous, as you wear the watch, so you’ll know what your heart rate is at all time while working out. So advanced! We adore this one for the slim and simple design as well. Buy yours at Amazon.com and your buddies will be a tad jealous.
