Make Mother's Day extra special with a stylish Fitbit Flex 2. This discreet fitness tracker can measure steps, distance, calories burned and sleep. It comes with a rubber strap, but can also be placed in a necklace (pictured) or metal bangle.
If Mom is looking for something a little more advanced, the Fitbit Alta HR is worth considering. This slim fitness tracker adds a heart rate sensor and a display to show fitness stats and basic smartphone notifications.
The Fitbit Charge 2 is similar to the Alta HR, but adds a larger display, guided breathing sessions and dedicated workout modes for tracking exercises like running, zumba, gym workouts and more.
The Fitbit devices are great fitness trackers, but maybe Mom would be better off with a smartwatch. If she owns an iPhone, the Apple Watch Series 1 is worth a look. This smartwatch can run apps, track fitness, display notifications and even answer calls from your phone, but it's not waterproof...
If she swims or wants to shower with the watch, the Apple Watch Series 2 is the one to get. Not only does it add GPS for tracking runs and bike rides, but it is also waterproof up to 50 meters.
Another option is the Apple Watch Nike Edition. This one has all of the same features as the Series 2, but includes integration with the Nike+ Run Club app. It's worth getting if Mom loves Nike.
If she isn't ready for a smartwatch but wants something more than a basic fitness tracker, the Fitbit Blaze is a worthy option. This fitness watch can track steps, distance, calories burned and sleep. It also has a large display to show notifications from your smartphone.
While the Apple Watch Series 2 is a decent watch for runners, it's no match for the Garmin Forerunner 235. This GPS watch can track runs and all-day fitness like steps and calories burned. It can also display notifications from your phone. But the highlight features are the long (one to two week) battery life, always-on display and waterproof design.
