Xiaomi, Huawei, and Fitbit are names that master the shipment of global wristband fitness tracker last year, based on data from IDC. Mi Band 4, Huawei Band 3, and Fitbit Charge 3 are the names of the new tracker fitness that each of them has.

Beyond that, there are still names like Honor and Garmin that also have similar devices. So, how to have the right fitness tracker?

According to Lisa Cadmus-Bertram, Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and Epidemiology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Wisconsin, United States, the first thing to note is its ability to be paired with a user’s cellphone.

He took Apple Watch as a wearable fellow as an example. According to him, the device will be the ideal partner for the iPhone, but not with other cellphones.

Then, the next step is to sort out which features are considered important. Fitness tracker in the form of a wristband is enough to meet the fitness measurement needs of users everyday.

“In fact, even a cheap fitness tracker can have all the important features. The main differentiator is whether or not it has a heart rate sensor,” Lisa said, as quoted by Digital Trends

In addition, what is the cost. However, if you choose according to your needs, then the nominal issued can be reduced.

“The model with the lowest price that has a heart rate sensor is a recommendation from me. You can spend twice that amount, but you don’t really need the additional features it has,” Lisa said.
