The ear piece and special software ensure it’s more accurate than other trackers, and of course you can listen to music with this all-in-one device.

The best feature is the quick calorie counter. It lets you track the amount of calories you’ve burned instantly.

Basis health tracker

Not just fitness, but your general health can be tracked with Basis. The wrist sensor can track your sleep, but also your stress levels. The advanced software then lets you trace back to see what activities are causing you stress, or work out when you need to take a break.

The Meteor is a fitness smartwatch but its greatest feature is the gesture control functionality.
