There is no doubt wearable fitness tech has made a big impact in the fitness world, but the fashion industry won’t be left behind. And, this timely post is conveniently published with Valenine’s Day just around the corner. What fit chick wouldn’t love a totally fashionable fitness tracker? (hint, hint hubby).
Here are 12 of the most fashionable wearable fitness devices out there…..
1. Tory Burch for Fitbit bracelet, $195
This gorgeous Deco- style bracelet by Tory Burch conceals the Fitbit Flex , a popular fitness tracker that monitors distance covered, steps taken, calories burned and your sleep patterns.
This hinged, Deco-style bracelet conceals a Fitbit Flex , which monitors steps taken, distance covered, calories burned—even how much you’ve slept.
2. Misfit Shine, $100
The elegant and totally versatile Misfit Shine disk tracks your calories burned from cycling, running, and swimming (it’s waterproof to 50 meters deep!) without needing a charge. It is iOS and android compatible. For a dressier look, it can be snapped into a sytlish leather band $40, or into a gorgeous bloom necklace, $79.99!
Swarofski partnered with Misfit and designed a line of their own gorgeous bracelets to snap this fancy little disk into.
3. Netatmo June, $99
This gorgeous piece of tech sensor gauges your exposure to harmful UV rays and then sends the information to an app on your iPhone. This is great for assessing your sun habits and offers suggestions like what SPF to use, when to put on a hat and sun glasses and when to move to the shade.
The jewels come in 3 different colors: platinum, gold and gunmetal
4. Ms Tech, $50+
This sleek looking necklace tracks distance walked or ran, sleep patterns and calories burned when plugged into your iOS or android. It comes in three colors: gold, silver, and black.
Ms Tech also has little LED lights around its circular face that can light up to display the time in an attractive but difficult-to-read sort of way.
As I can’t imagine this being extremely comfortable for many fitness activities other than walking, light jogging or some lifting, its one of the most stylish pieces of fitness trackers I have seen so far.
The device is available on MT’s project page and if you order before February 1, you can get your necklace engraved for free.
5. Samsung Gear Fit, $199
This portable personalized fitness manager uses data from the built-in heart rate monitor and pedometer to give you real time info on the progress and results of your workout. This will also personalize and adapt next workout recommendations for you.
Gear Fit gives you instant notifications of
emails, SMS, incoming calls, & 3rd party apps with easy to control basic functions like rejecting calls or quick reply to messages on the touch screen. Compatible with Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
6. Pebble Smartwatch, $199
This iOS and android compatible smartwatch has glanceable notifications for emails, calls and texts, 7 day long battery life, control music that plays on your phone, daylight readable display and 1000’s of apps to choose from like pandora, the weather channel, and runkeeper.
7. Montblanc e-Strap, $300
Don’t mess with my watch man! The Montblanc e-strap lets you keep your favorite timeless watch piece while still being able to wear a fitness tracker on your wrist. This strap is part of the Montblanc Timewalker Urban Speed collection but can be added to any watch for fitness tracking and notifications on the monochrome OLED screen.
8. Ringly, $195
Okay, so this one isn’t so fitness oriented but it was too cool to pass up. It lights up or vibrates when you have calls, texts, e-mails, and social media alerts. Just fabulous. What will they come up with next?
9. Fitband Bling!, $18.88
Or, you could just bling your band with Fitband Bling! These slide right on your JAWBONE UP®, UP24TM; Fitbit® FlexTM and other bands 35-45mm in circumference for a fun, flirty look.
10. Mica Band by Opening Ceremony, $1000
With this hefty price tag, it better look good, track every bit of fitness data possible all while making me breakfast!
This fancy band “boasts black watersnake skin, pearls from China and Madagascan lapis stones, while the other packs in white watersnake skin, tiger’s eye from South Africa, and obsidian from Russia.”
Like the Misfit Shine, the device itself pops out to clip onto jackets, belts and pockets. It is compatible with the iPhone app and delivers motivational messages, known as Boosts, throughout the day.
Kickstarter backers have until January 5th to get in early for a Mira.
12. Cuff, Pre-order $49
Another fitness tracker like the Misfit, the stone can be popped out and placed in various pieces of fashionable jewelry. It gives you notifications, tracks activity and can keep you connected in the case of an emergency.
