A Solid Alternative to a Smartwatch

The humble fitness tracker has long since been eclipsed by the smartwatch. It’s easy to understand why, of course but it’s left anyone looking for something simpler—and cheaper—with dinky wristbands to choose from that aren’t much to look at. The Fitbit Luxe seems like the perfect solution, with an elegant jewelry-inspired design, color touchscreen, and all the basic health-tracking features a person could ask for, and then some. It’s also got a price tag befitting a “luxe” tracker. That may or may not be a good thing, depending on what you’re looking for.

An Actually Fashionable Fitness Tracker

It’s been a while since we’ve seen an attractive fitness tracker that wasn’t actually a hybrid smartwatch. The last one was probably the Fitbit Alta HR—and that launched ages ago in 2017. When Fitbit announced the Luxe in April, I jokingly told

Starling Fitness – Fitness, diet, and health weblog

You can’t tell from the picture, but the sticker on the binder said $1.50. I was at the local thrift store and the binder looked pretty nice.

When I opened it, I noticed the words, “Exercises,” and “Recipes,” on the tabs. I shut the binder and decided that this was something I should buy if it’s only a buck fifty. When I got it home, I very quickly surmised that this was a program designed to sell supplements. Mostly, because the second page told me to plan ahead and buy supplements.

Not only supplements, but shakes and bars as well.

It was as if I had stepped back into the Nineties when SlimFast and Optifast ruled the airways. I looked at the date of the book and it said 2004. I did a little research and connected the book with Amway based on a PRNewswire:

The Best Waterproof Fitness Trackers for 2021

Which Fitness Trackers Are Waterproof?

You can expect a fitness tracker to be a bit more resilient than your average smartwatch, able to handle the bumps, shakes, and most importantly, sweat, that comes with a workout. Any fitness tracker worth considering is resistant to moisture and splashes. But this doesn’t mean that all fitness trackers are actually waterproof. In fact, many of them aren’t.

Just because you can wear a fitness tracker in the shower doesn’t mean you should wear it the next time you swim a few laps in the pool. For swimming, you need a fitness tracker that’s sealed and submersible, and will survive a consistent soaking.

To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of the best waterproof trackers we’ve tested here. Rest assured, all of these devices can be worn in the water—and will still be in good working order once you dry off.

  • Cardiovascular Endurance
  • Muscular Strength
  • Muscular endurance
  • Flexibility
  • Body Composition

Total fitness can be defined by how well the body performs in each one of the components of physical fitness as a whole. It is not enough to be able to bench press your body weight. You also need to determine how well you can handle running a mile etc.

A closer look at the individual components:

Cardiovascular endurance is the ability of the heart and lungs to work together to provide the needed oxygen and fuel to the body during sustained workloads. Examples would be jogging, cycling and swimming. The Cooper Run is
