As activity trackers get smarter and smarter and well, frankly better, the prices are really getting up there for these clever devices. This means that with all the competition on the market some makers are trying to cash in on that value for money aspect. Well, the front runner in this niche would appear to be the new Fitbug Orb which really seems to be hitting that balance between price and cool functionality.
This particular fitness tracking device at about $49.95 comes in at almost half the cost of some of the top systems from FitBit or Nike. It has many of the same kind of features found in the more expensive versions but is smaller and a little less complicated to use. It can track your activity just like more expensive models as well as monitoring your progress and storing goals. The compact size means that you can wear it in a number of different ways so it’s not just a wrist worn device. Using Bluetooth connectivity your Fitbug can sync up with your smartphone or other iOS devices which can then help you track more comprehensively.
Oh, by the way, if you find yourself struggling for motivation this clever gadget can be set to give you prompts to workout. So if you are falling behind in your exercise schedule the FitBug will tell you and then because it is tracking you it will keep you honest.
