Sometimes with very different features, it became difficult to rank from first to tenth. So we decided to offer the best products with a heart rate sensor, followed by the best trackers for everyday life. We also opted to mix genres, mixing classic bracelets and watches.
Unsurprisingly, there are brands with great experience in the field, such as Garmin, Fitbit, but also Samsung. Others – sometimes unexpected – like TomTom offer us great surprises, with comprehensive products.
Bracelets with Heart
1. Garmin Forerunner 235
Discreet and light, the Forerunner 235 is dedicated to those who practice rather intensively race. No touch screen, but five buttons around a fairly large screen very comfortable to use. The choice of physical buttons is understandable, as sweat can make the perilous tactile manipulation. At this price, we have the right to a heartbeat sensor which measures have proven very reliable, even split. The other highlight of the show is the integration of a GPS chip, eliminating the need of a smartphone to create a record of his race. Again, the steps are very convincing for short distances and rather good on longer journeys. In addition to the sporting aspect, the Forerunner 235 provides access to its regular notifications as SMS or calls.
As Garmin , TomTom made the choice to offer a complete product. Again, the GPS chip and heart rate are at the rendezvous. Even better than the previous model of the brand , the Spark Cardio can store MP3 tracks, allowing to go running without embarking smartphone, provided you use a Bluetooth headset. It is particularly effective, with a new easier to take everyday design.The reliability of its measures and the quality of its application make it one of the best assets for regular athletes.
Two years after the first model , Samsung is back with the Gear Fit 2. We find a beautiful curved AMOLED screen, which fits snugly to the wrist. Comfort is maximized, and many features. Once again, the bracelet can be used independently with a heart rate monitor, a GPS chip and 4 GB of storage for music. His only flaws are software-related, with a still perfectible mobile application. But, hopefully, it will quickly have to evolve.
More compact than the Forerunner 235, the HR Vivosmart yet offers a wide range of possibilities, which include the heart rate measurement. As a bonus, the screen (black and white) displays notifications from the smartphone, which is also the case on the Forerunner 235. As often with Garmin, the data are reliable and comparable to those of a chest strap for heart beat, comfort bonus. Its sealing – up to 50 meters – allows him to accompany you to the pool. Its relatively affordable price makes this band one of the best choice for those who have specific goals in running, but not the desire to spend too much money.
As often with Fitbit, good quality finish is the rendezvous for this version of the HR load , which for 25 dollars more, is equipped with a heart rate sensor. The discreet screen displays the measured continuously during training, to take its objectives better. Rather sober, the Charge HR accompany you during intensive workouts and everyday. The Fitbit application also allows to monitor their diet, with a count of calories. A good alternative to Blaze for those who cling more to the data that makes benefit of a color screen.
