The top 5 best fitness trackers (2016 edition)

Smartwatches
You want to know how to be more fit? I talked to c/net Dan Graziano to find out what gadgets can help. There are the top five best fitness trackers available today. At number five the Garmon Vivomove This might be the best fitness tracker out there that does not look like a fitness tracker. The Garmin Vivomove looks like a well-crafted watch. On the left side is a simple meter that shows you far you are rom your fitness goals, plus the tracker users a coin battery that lasts up to one year. And number four, the Fitbit Blaze. The Blaze also resembles a watch, but not in a classic sense like the Vivomove. The Blaze has a big display, but the design might not be for everyone. The Blaze also packs a solid four days of battery life on a single charge. Plus it ties into Fitbit's excellent smart phone app, which has good social elements that keep you motivated. And number three, the Garmin Vivoactive HR. This device is a good, everyday fitness tracker that should appeal to lots of people, not just athletes. The Vivoactive HR can track a variety of activities, like running, strength training, golf, and other sports. On top of that, the Vivoactive HR lasts eight days on a single charge. Battery life dropped to 13 hours is GPS is active. At number two is the Fitbit Flex 2. If you don't want your fitness tracker making a statement, check out the Fitbit Flex 2. The Flex 2 is the first waterproof Fitbit, a feature that many people have wanted in a Fitbit. The Blaze is tracker. On a little plastic pill that can be tucked into a wristband or other accessories. And at number one is the Fitibt Charge 2. The Charge 2 has an OLED screen capable of displaying fitness data, the time, and even some phone notifications. This tracker packs five days of battery life and of course ties into the Fitbit app we talked about before. The Fitbit Charge 2 is the best overall Fitbit of the bunch, and it's the best tracker for the average person. It seems like a new fitness tracker comes out every day. If this list changes, we'll let you know. Get some more top fives at top5.cnet.com, I'm [UNKNOWN] and I'll see you online. [MUSIC]
