Smartwatches and fitness trackers have come a long way since they were first introduced as an easy way to stay on top of your health and wellness goals. They’ve already become an integral part of many Canadians’ lifestyles, but if you haven’t yet jumped on board then one affordable option may be worth testing out.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $46
Considered as a “great alternative to [the] expensive Apple Watch” by many reviewers, this smartwatch comes with all of the features that you’d hope for in a fitness tracker. Not only does it monitor your heart rate and sleep metrics, it also tracks your workouts, calories burned, and provides call and message notifications.
Unlike some other inexpensive models, the Orit Fitness Tracker features a touch screen design that easily connects to both Apple and Android devices. It also boasts an impressive battery life that lasts up to 10 days on a single charge. It's also available in two colours: navy and pink.
What people are saying
Backed by a 4-star rating, this fitness tracker has ben praised for its accuracy, battery life and easy set-up.
“The heart rate feature, ability to adjust music, and see notifications all on my wrist instead of trying to utilize my phone while running are so nice to have,” reads one five-star review. “It was easy to pair to my iPhone and a great alternative to the expensive Apple Watch when I'm not picky about brands or having all the bells and whistles. Great value for its price!”
“Really surprised with the quality of this watch at this great price,” reads another. “Battery of this watch is amazingly good and lasts more than 10 days. All fitness sensors work perfectly fine but the sleep monitor in this watch is better than any of my other watches...Very happy with this watch.”
Since this budget-friendly watch watch doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles of some other smartwatches, it’s probably best for someone who is looking for simplicity in their devices.
“For those who just want the basics this is plenty,” says one reviewer. “You get notifications, but no response. There's the option to control music, and you can use the find-my-phone option—which is useful, if you're an idiot like me, and lose things right in front of you. All in all, it's been great thus far.
Since the biggest draw for this lightweight smartwatch is obviously its price, it’s a good option for those who don’t mind going without some features. The Orit Fitness Tracker offers all of the basics you would want in a fitness tracker, and might be worth checking out if you’re in the market for a new one.
