Is it weird to ask people how many steps they’ve taken? Yes. But I’ve found that people wearing these rad activity tracker bracelets are more than happy to spill. They’ll tell you where they got their steps, or why they’ve been so sedentary. It’s like a big sign that says “Talk to me about my fitness!” If you’re the kind of freak that’s into that, we’re with you. Here are the coolest of the bunch:
1. Nike+ Fuelband SE, $149 at Nike.com
Cool Feature: Like the others, this tracks movement and sleep but the Fuelband somehow tracks the intensity of your movements.
2. FitBit Force, $130 at Fitbit.com
Cool Feature: Tracks you wirelessly and wakes you up with a silent alarm.
3. Jawbone UP 24, $150 at Jawbone.com
Cool Feature: The best looking of the bunch, plus it identifies patterns in your movement and sleep and encourages you to make goals based on that.
