9 Fitness Trackers for All Your Fitness Needs

3. Pulsense


A wrist-based monitor, Pulsense ($129.99) tracks your heart rate and sleep, records steps and counts calories. The minimalist display uses a range of 5 LED indicators to show which heart rate zone you’re in, so you can train at the appropriate intensity. This was great for me when I was trying to target a certain zone during a rowing workout, but most of my training is calculated around percentages of the weights I’m lifting, not my heart rate. So I would check the app after training to review my activity, but it wasn’t as useful during a session as it would be for someone who does a lot of cardio-based work.

I keep going back and forth on the display. While I like not having a ton of distractions, if a device is on my wrist I also like being able to check my stats right then and there rather than going the extra step of checking my phone. If I want to use my phone, I’ll wear a chest-strap monitor.

I do like that Pulsense calculates sleep quality using both heart rate data and motion sensing. For me, given the slim, low-profile band, this is actually a much better sleep tracker than it is a fitness tracker, as I could wear it to bed very comfortably.

    Wow, thanks so much for the extensive review! I currently have the polar loop – original – and absolutely love it. I use the heart rate monitor strap when I am exercising. It is my personal coach for sure! It pushes me to meet and then exceed my goal daily!

    Thanks again for the review, I love keeping up to date with the latest!

  2. Great information and I’m definitely looking into that Twister Tracker. 😀 I think my husband and I could really have a blast with that thing. 😀

    As for the tracker I use, it’s definitely Fitbit One. I love my fit bit since it tracks my steps, stairs, miles and hours of sleep. Some of these look amazing though, so I might look into something else…however I find if I have something that tracks too many things I get overwhelmed and stop using it all together. LOL. It’s definitely a less is more mentality for me. 🙂

    Thanks for the product review. It is always such a difficult decision for me to buy a product that there are so many variants of. I tried looking for products that have complementary things I’m looking for. I was struggling with sleep and needed a new pillow. While looking into that I found a company that sold both a sleep/activity tracker and a pillow that I heard was amazing. I got the 100series tracker and an adjustable pillow. https://rem-fit.com/ Both have worked so great for me. Good luck on your choices!

    Love these! Seriously, I may have an addiction to fitness trackers of all sorts haha! One that would rock on this list too is the ncredible sleep tracker, The REM-Fit Sleep Monitor. It’s an incredibly thin strap that lays across your bed, and while you sleep it monitors your heart rate, respiratory rate and motion. It analyzes all of the data from your sleep to give you a sleep score based on how long you slept, your heart rate, respiratory rate, motion and more. Then, you just tap on your sleep score in the free app and you can get a full account of the factors that make up your score. Plus it has an extra long lasting battery so you don’t have to plug it in each night. Just charge it up while you wash your sheets and you are all set. I highly recommend this. You can see more info about it at this link: Fitness & Sleep Trackers (https://rem-fit.com/) (Seriously the best sleep tracker I’ve found.) Huzzah to fitness tracking devices!
