Buyer's Guide: How to Purchase Fitness Bands

If you have read through the article this far, you would know the pros and cons of some of the fitness bands available in 2020 and their features. We will further simplify the process for you to make sure you can select the best suited fitness band based on your taste.

Fitness tracker is an excellent motivational tool for beginners who are taking their first step in the fitness journey. It allows you to set personal goals and push your boundaries. It can even be turned into a group activity, where friends can set a common goal and engage in a healthy competition.

Apart from goal setting, the fitness tracker brings a change in the mentality to start eating healthy, improve sleep and maintain a healthy heart rate.

People who train for marathons and triathlons will be benefited if they own fitness trackers. It will help them form a disciplined regimen where they can calculate the distance they have trained for each day. Some fitness trackers have inbuilt GPS which can provide you with a map of the distance covered.

Nowadays fitness bands are available with water resistance that can be used even for underwater activities. They also come with excellent battery back-up so we don’t have to worry about charging them even while travelling. Fitness bands are mostly lightweight and are easy to carry around.

The following are the things to look for when one is interested in buying a fitness tracker:

Accuracy

The foremost reason people are now investing in fitness bands and smartwatches is that they want to track the number of steps taken and the amount of calories they have burnt.

Any discrepancies in these values will be ruining the purpose of the purchase. So the buyer must prioritise accuracy over anything. The fitness bands also provide sedentary alert and water reminders. These should be timed at regular intervals to ensure adherence without any distraction.

OS Compatibility

Most of the smartphones have either android or iOS running in them. There are also phones which run on pebble OS and Tizen OS. Fitness trackers are compatible with Android versions 5.0 and above and iOS versions 7.0 with a few exceptions.

We must make sure that the fitness band you buy is compatible with the OS of the smartphone you use. It is best to go with a versatile fitness band which supports both the OS, so that you continue the usage in the future without any discomfort.

Display

Fitness bands generally have an OLED display with a touch button at the bottom to flip between the modes. The dial size ranges from 0.5 inches to 0.96 inches. A few fitness trackers have LCD screens which are fully touch enabled and provide a placid experience while using them.

Certain fitness bands provide 50+ options in the clock faces wherein you can choose the one suited for you. They also provide you with adjustable brightness settings. The user must make sure that the device has a bright display even in sunlight.

Interface

One should then look at the interface of the fitness tracker. The interface should be easily understandable with clear texts and logos for each feature present. The fitness trackers nowadays are used by people of all age groups, so a user friendly interface is a non-negotiable quality when it comes to purchasing a fitness tracker.

Response Speed

Some fitness trackers have gesture controls like flip to light the screen etc. There should not be any lag in these. Most of the screens are touch enabled or are controlled by a touch button, the response should be fast because the user will expect real time tracking. Any lag in these qualities is very unappealing.

Quality of the Dial and Strap

The straps are usually made up of silicone or thermoplastic. The expectation is that the straps should be non irritant and provide adjustability to the wrists of all sizes. The buckle which is made up of aluminium should not rust.

The dial is either acrylic glass or thermoplastic glass which is expected to be scratch resistant. They should also be smudge proof to increase their appeal. The dial along with bezel and the buckle should give a polished look to attract the users.

Water Resistance

It is better to purchase a fitness tracker with a higher water resistance to ensure that it doesn’t stop functioning due to unpredicted water spills. The IP68 and 5 ATM certified fitness trackers can withstand even the heavy downpours and can be used even for underwater sports.

This is an added advantage and provides flexibility to the user to enjoy all types of activities.

Ease of Use

Right from connecting the fitness tracker to the smartphone, installing the link app to figuring out the band interface, everything should be easily understandable. The user should get the hang of it in a try or two.

Customizability

The user should be able to customise the fitness band based on one’s preference. Some fitness trackers come with multiple default clock faces which allow them to set the theme of the clock face to their liking.

They should also be provided with the option to mute the notifications from certain apps or set them to vibrate mode during work or social situations in order to avoid distraction. The brightness of the screen should be adjustable according to the time of the day.

There should be provisions for DND mode and airplane mode in the watch that helps the user turn off the call and message notification for a certain period of time.

Battery Durability

The battery of the fitness tracker should be durable. Or else the watch becomes more of a trouble than it’s worth. The user would have to run around looking for charging ports or laptops to charge the band instead of using it with ease.

Most fitness bands provide 7 to 10 days active battery life and 45 days standby battery life. The durability of the battery is also one of the mandatory things to look for when it comes to buying a smartwatch.

Sport Modes

Most fitness bands have specific sports modes namely tennis, badminton, skipping, cycling, etc to calculate the calories burnt for each activity with absolute accuracy. This makes sure that the primary focus of the smartwatch is fitness and is an added feature to look for when buying a fitness band.

Looks

Of course we want to own a product that looks good on our hand when we wear it. Most fitness bands are suited for casual and business attire. If you're looking for a sleeker and classic look, you can choose colours like black and grey which can be worn at all occasions.

If you like a bit of bling or want to show your quirky side, you can choose from colours like orange, lilac, purple, blue etc.

Warranty

Almost all the fitness trackers come with a manufacturer’s warranty. The warranties are provided from 3 months to a year. It is better to go with a product which has the longest warranty, so that you can have the product repaired or replaced in case of failure.

Price

Last but not the least we must be able to get all these features without burning a hole through our pocket. The price of fitness bands start from as low as Rs.500 and extend to a few thousands.

There are a large number of brands in the market launching new fitness bands every year. The user can choose the band that is best suited for them based on the budget and the features listed.
