Want to gift your fitness crew (or yourself) a little extra motivation this season? Pick up a wearable. They're your constant reminder to continue working towards your health goals—and a pretty stylish reminder, at that. Plus, it feels good when you look down and see that you're making steady progress each day or crushing major calories during your gym session. The only problem: Which one to choose? Look no further. We've pulled together five of our faves. Happy tracking!
Once you strap on this arm candy, you may wonder how you ever survived without it. It is literally like a teeny tiny computer on your wrist. Whether it's coaching you through your latest workout, tracking your stats, allowing you to easily pay for that cup of Starbucks, or briefing you on your next calender appointment, the Fitbit Ionic does it all. Did we mention it also offers up in-depth info on your sleep patterns? What. more. could. you. want.
If you're a runner, you'll definitely want to rock this tracker. Sure, it gives you the basics—all-day tracking of steps, distance, and calories burned—but this GPS-enabled watch also offers a running index score (a measurement of your aerobic fitness and running economy) to help you estimate your maximum capacity and finish time for an event. Translation: Know if your training efforts are actually putting you on the path to a PR.
Huawei Band Pro 2
While wearables are amazing, they can also be super expensive. But this sleek wearable is under $75, practically a steal considering that the waterproof model is jam-packed with fun features. Some of our faves: continuous heart rate monitoring, GPS, run coaching, sleep tracking, and relaxation training. Plus, a single charge will last you 21 days!
We love the versatility of this subtle, slim multi-sport tracker, which can be wrapped around your wrist or ankle. And don't let the lack of display screen turn you off—it still packs a data punch, giving you in-the-moment feedback that can help you become a more efficient exerciser or just help you step more and sleep better.

Bonus: It looks more like an upscale watch than a traditional wearable.
