7 Best Fitbit Alternatives You Can Go for in 2021

1. Garmin Vivofit 3

In the arena of fitness technology, Garmin is a household name, and while its products are clearly “name brand,” they are significantly less expensive than the competitors. The Vivofit 3 is a band-style activity tracker with one-year battery life — no charge necessary — and immediately syncs with the Garmin Connect companion app to submit all of the health information that is fit for the Vivofit 3. It can even identify your present activities and collect the necessary information. It’s also reasonably priced, at under $90 on Amazon.

2. Toobur Slim

Fitness-tracking bracelets, like this one from Toobur, fall somewhere between simple wristbands and full-fledged smartwatches in terms of price, size, and capabilities. With its tiny LED display, the Toobur immediately reminds one of the Fitbit Alta, Flex 2, or Alta HR. Toobur fitness band tracks activity and sleep. It connects wirelessly to your phone, so you can upload your data and get notifications for incoming calls, texts, and social media updates. The best part? Toobur fitness tracker costs less than $40. If you want something similar to a Fitbit Flex but don’t want to spend $80 on a wearable, this is a nice alternative.

3. Amazfit Bip

The robust Amazfit Bip foregoes most frills in favor of a low-cost, no-frills sports watch that’s ideal for active customers searching for something more than a regular digital watch (think G-Shock with a heart rate monitor, a customizable face, and smart connectivity).

4. Wahoo TICKR FIT

Wahoo Tickr Fit Armband heart rate monitor tracks and records real-time heart rate, training zones, and calories burnt via compatible training applications on your smartphone or tablet. It links to tablets, phones, bikes, watches, and other devices from a variety of brands, including Garmin and Apple, via Bluetooth and GPS. Bes has the Wahoo Tickr Fit Armband for $80 right now.

5. Scosche Rhythm+

Scosche Rhythm+ heart rate monitor and activity tracker is worn on the forearm rather than the chest, allowing for more accurate (and more comfortable) real-time heart monitoring. It also works with Bluetooth and ANT+ devices, allowing you to connect it to a wide range of cellphones, GPS watches, and other devices. The Rhythm+ monitors calories burnt, distance traveled, and pace, and it integrates with popular fitness applications as well as heart rate monitoring. At Amazon, the Scosche Rhythm+ heart rate monitor and activity tracker are regularly $80.

6. Withings Activite Pop

If you want a tracker with classic watch designs, the Withings Activite Pop is the watch to get. Time and daily target progress are displayed on the old-school analog face. The Activite Pop also features a sensor on the inside that tracks things like sleep quality, steps taken, and more, and sends them to your synced smartphone via the Health Mate app. Because Nokia just acquired Withings, pre-buyout Withings-branded stock is currently available for a low price. This tracker is a wonderful alternative if you want a step counter with sleep monitoring but don’t want to spend the high price of an Apple Watch Series device.

7. Lintelek Fitness Tracker

If you’d want to see if a gadget like this would work for you, Lintelek’s Fitness Tracker is a good Fitbit alternative because it covers all of the basics.
