We love our activity trackers over here at KindHealth, and we’re constantly trying to learn about what wearables are on the market. After doing a little research, we found some great affordable options that everyone should check out.

Fitbit Blaze
Not only does this sleek wristband have all the features that a common Fitbit has- activity tracker, sleep tracker, heart rate monitor- it also offers music control and call, text and calendar alerts from your smartphone. Choose from a series of stylish bands, including leather and stainless steel metal links, and a Blaze’s battery charge will last you about five days. Wareable.com picked it as the best overall activity tracker of 2016. Cost: $199.95

Misfit Shine
If looks are your thing, the Misfit Shine not only offers a unique circular-shape interface in a plethora of colors, the modular design also allows you to wear on places other than your wrist. The Shine also tracks cycling, sports and because it is waterproof, it can track laps in the pool. The best part of this mod device? The Shine will set you back only $69.99.

Garmin Vivoactive
Garmin’s products might not be the sexiest, but they’re popular with athletes for their GPS capabilities and variety of features. The Garmin Vivoactive GPS tracks running, cycling, swimming and golfing, and offers all the features that the Fitbit Blaze offers (call, text and calendar alerts). However, the Vivoactive can last three weeks on a battery charge for the watch portion, and 10 hours on GPS mode. Cost: $219.99
