Six of the best: personal fitness trackers

Power up your fitness routine with one of these activity trackers

With the clocks going forward and lighter evenings here again, there’s no longer any excuse for staying indoors when you could be out pounding the tarmac. Are these the fitness gadget you’ve been waiting for? We take a look at six of the best.

Microsoft Band

Powered by a standard watch battery, the Jawbone Up Move will give you around six months of use before that battery needs replacing. It comes as a device that clips to your clothing, but a wriststrap is available at extra cost. The Up Move tracks your steps, your sleep patterns and your calories burned. Its app enables you to set daily goals for yourself and the ‘smart coach’ feature makes suggestions of changes you can make. Just a shame it looks like something out of a kids toybox.
