The Samsung Gear Fit2 comes with inbuilt GPS, allowing you to leave your phone safely at home when you’re pounding the pavement. The curved display helps it wrap naturally around your wrist, making this one of the most comfortable trackers we’ve tried.

The Samsung Gear Fit2 is smart enough to know if you’re running, cycling, walking or on the rowing machine, and it’ll automatically track your activity. With the S Health app, you’ll be able to challenge friends and family, giving you an added incentive to reach your fitness goals.

Plus, it’s swim-friendly, so you can take it for a dip and not have to worry about removing it when you shower. In fact, it’s completely waterproof to a depth of 100 metres.
