Samsung’s Gear Fit 2
This clever piece or wearable technology has made staggering changes to its line both inside and out and the result is an Android-friendly device that does it all – well, pretty much everything! The Gear Fit 2 boasts a stunning design, a generous display and doesn’t cost all that much money compared to some other fitness trackers available on the market. The only real issue with it is that it won’t work with your iPhone or Windows device; you have to have an Android to use the Gear Fit 2.

A very popular choice due to its excellent mix of step counter and proper gym, running and cycling companion. It’s superb to use for the gym, for your running, cycling, golf and other sports as it is for counting steps and tracking sleep – it’s a great all-rounder.
