Misfit Flash Link ( red)
Misfit's entry-level fitness tracker gets the job done at a supercheap price, but its 'smart button' functions leave a lot to be desired.
Beddit Sleep Monitor Classic ( white)
The Beddit provides more sleep data than your average wrist tracker, but suffers from too many measurement problems to be a practical sleep solution.
Garmin Forerunner 225
Runners interested in tracking both heart-rate and all-day activities can't go wrong with the Forerunner 225.
Sensoria Fitness Smart Sock
While Sensoria makes a case for using smart socks to meticulously track runners' data, these smart socks need to improve on almost every count of design and data presentation to justify their cost.

Epson Runsense SF-810 ( black)
Long-distance elite athletes will appreciate the accuracy of the GPS and heart-rate, but the high price tag makes it less appealing for everyday runners.
Huawei TalkBand B2 ( silver/white)
Despite its unique two-in-one design -- it's a fitness tracker and Bluetooth headset -- the Huawei TalkBand B2 ultimately overpromises and underdelivers on both accounts.
Garmin Vivofit 2 ( pink)
The always-on display and long battery life make the Garmin Vivofit 2 an appealing alternative to the Jawbone Up2 and Fitbit Charge.
Pebble Time ( black)
The Pebble Time adds a few key improvements and a color screen compared to previous Pebble watches, but owners of previous Pebble watches may not see a need to upgrade yet.
LG Watch Urbane
The LG Watch Urbane is the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch and adds Wi-Fi-to-phone connectivity, but it doesn't offer all that much more than previous Android Wear watch models.
Jawbone Up3 ( black)
The Up3 is one of the smallest super-slim fitness bands around, but its lack of a display and limited heart rate tracking aren't worth the high price.
Jawbone Up2 ( black)
A better fit and superior software make the redesigned Jawbone Up2 our favorite everyday fitness band.
Alcatel OneTouch Watch ( black/red)
The Alcatel OneTouch Watch is an affordable and reasonably attractive basic smartwatch, but it doesn't work well enough to justify choosing one over better and increasingly comparably priced alternatives.
Apple Watch 38mm Stainless Steel Case ( Black Sport Band)
The Apple Watch is the most ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch ever seen, but first-gen shortfalls make it feel more like a fashionable toy than a necessary tool. That may change with a big software update later this year, though.
Fitbit Surge ( black, large)
All-day heart-rate tracking is a step in the right direction, but the smart features aren't nearly smart enough and the fitness side of the Surge is too basic to justify the higher price.
Fitbit Charge HR ( black, small)
Fitbit's Charge HR adds heart-rate tracking to an already solid fitness band at a great price, but all the kinks don't feel fully ironed out yet.
Withings Activité Pop
With its analog looks and Bluetooth-syncing functions, the Withings Activite Pop is a clever, stylish blend of everyday watch and connected fitness band that lasts months on a single battery.
Pivotal Tracker 1
While you won't find any advanced features in it, the affordability of the Pivotal Tracker 1 makes it a low risk tracker for newcomers interested in the wearable market.
Sony Smartwatch 3 ( black)
Although its ability to use GPS to track your run is handy, its poor screen, uninspiring design and lack of a heart-rate monitor means the SmartWatch 3 doesn't impress over its more luxurious Android Wear competitors.
Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor ( slate, large)
While it won't appeal to everyone, the Vivosmart is a solid activity tracker for those individuals who are also interested in receiving basic notifications on their wrist.
Sony SmartBand Talk ( black)
The SmartBand Talk's screen, waterproof design and ability to show your incoming notifications make it a useful piece of tech to wear, even if you're not fussed about keeping track of your activity during the day.
