Jawbone UP3 Activity, Heart, and Sleep Tracker
The current line of Jawbone fitness bracelets are all some of the more attractive ones on the market, but the Jawbone UP3 is the classiest version, and was picked as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things. The UP3 has all the standard features you’d expect from Jawbone, including Smart Coach, a water-resistant band you can shower with, and standard step and activity tracking.
Some of the newer features include Advanced Sleep tracking. Using bioimpedance sensors, the UP3 uses your heart rate to track your sleep phrases, including Wake, REM, Light Sleep, and Deep Sleep. This makes the Smart Alarm even more accurate. The other new feature is Heart Health monitoring.

Apple Watch Sport
The Apple Watch is one of the hottest smartwatches on the market right now. A lot of people forget it is also a fitness watch as it has advanced activity, step, and heart rate monitoring features. It’s also fully customizable with different sizes, colors, and a number of different bands to create the perfect look for any outfit.
The smartwatch factor is off the charts with the Apple Watch. We’re only going to focus on the fitness and health apps (because there’s hundreds more), but it comes with a few that rival other fitness bands. The Activity App helps you achieve 3 daily fitness goals: standing, moving, and exercise. The Workout App allows you to track specific types of exercises by utilizing specific sensors based on the workout type you select. Apple also has health apps to track your heart rate and other stats.
The downsides with the Apple Watch is that there are not currently sleep tracking capabilities and it is not water resistant. Beyond that, the endless apps, and nearly limitless band choices make this a cool and fashionable choice for an activity tracker.
Available colors: aluminum case (space gray, silver aluminum, gold aluminum, rose gold aluminum) or stainless steel case (stainless steel or space black stainless steel)
Tracks: steps, heart rate, exercise, and so much more
Notable features: 18 hour battery life, Retina display with Force Touch, swappable bands, call, text, and other iPhone notifications, App store, compatible with Kiqplan
