Fitness and activity trackers are electronic wearable devices that monitor health-related metrics such as walking or running, heart rate, blood oxygen levels, calorie consumption, and sleep quality. Fitness and activity trackers mostly come in the form of wristbands, although they can also appear as clip-on devices, earbuds, or clothing made of smart fabric. Besides being a standalone device, it can also exist in the form of a fitness app as software often installed on smartphones utilizing the device’s built-in components to keep track of certain activities.
Standalone fitness trackers on transition
In the beginning, there was a clear divide between a smartwatch when it was solely an extension of a smartphone screen and a fitness tracker that had sensors that relayed activity data to a smartphone. However, these two devices converged when the smartwatches leaned towards integrating sensors for tracking activity, as we see in one of the most popular smartwatches and a fitness tracker, the Apple Watch. The smartwatch serving the purpose of a fitness or activity tracker has resulted in the decline of devices specifically designed to help as an activity tracker, albeit their advantage of being more compact with longer battery life over smartwatches.
