Please let us know what you think about some of these elusive fitness gadgets by commentingin the box below…


  1. Definitely some interesting machines on here, but I am more interested in the “watches” per say. I am kinda oblivious to how they work so not sure if they have to be worn against the skin, or does just having them on your person, say in a pocket, work? I would love “pocket watch” style, but have not seen anything like that so far in my searches.

    1. Hey James

      To the best of my knowledge these watches have to be worn on the skin for detection of heart rate, pulse etc… however; you bring up an interesting point regarding pocket watches that can track as well. I’ll do some digging as well and perhaps post a review about it if I’m successful.


  2. Hi there,

    I actually thought that Orange is the new black. I guess I was wrong. 😉 Those watches that you have listed above, do they count steps while you are swinging your arm? I had a smart watch before and it does that. Because of that, I couldn’t trust its metrics. It was not Fitbit though so Im hoping that this one is different.


    1. Von-

      I found that there is no tracker on the market 100% accurate; however most fitness enthusiast would agree that the Apple Watch tends to be most accurate. It’s the best all-purpose tracker I’ve used, and I’ve tried a few. I’d say the Apple Watch is about 90% accurate, with fitbit trackers a close second. To answer your question, swinging your arm on the these trackers will not count as steps – simply because steps is not the only metric used to calculate them.


  3. I train with kettlebells on a regular basis and I’ve always wondered if the fitness watches and wrist bands would work if placed on the underside of the forearm. It seems like it would, but do you know for sure if the heart rate monitoring would still work that way?

    1. Hey Casey… unfortunately I can only confirm one fitness watch capable of maintaining performance if worn on the underside of the forearm (Mio Link Wrist Mounted Heart Rate Monitor). I’m actually intrigued with this unit… maybe I’ll conduct a product review in a few short weeks.


  4. I think the Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch looks awesome and I´m thinking of getting it for my girlfriend for her birthday.
    Do you know if they are more colors available? Even though that purple, one looks really nice.
    She will use it just to brag about, so I was just wondering about the colors.

    1. Hi Kevin-

      The Fitbit Blaze Smart Watch is great for fitness… and comes in a variation of 5 different colors including: Black, Grey, Purple, Gold & Silver. You can’t go wrong with by choosing this as a birthday gift.


  5. Hey man,

    this is very informative about different treadmills. I am going to buy the treadmill and see how it is.

    It will do me good because I need to lose some weight. Thank you for guiding me to the treadmill.

    I wish you the best man! I think that you have some great content.

    1. Thanks Emmanuel-

      Treadmills are a trending product right now for weight loss… Glad to see you found value from the products we promote!

  6. I think fitness gadgets will continue to be on the rise as technology advances. There are so many things to quantify now that doesn’t require extensive blood tests or biopsies and such. As more and more discoveries are made on human performance and correlation to bodily functions and parameters, I think fitness gadgets will stay the new black for a long time to come.

    1. Wing… I totally agree with you. There are a plethora of new fitness gadgets out on the market now. Look out for part 2 of this article coming soon.


  7. All of these are incredibly awesome. I want at least one of these is my home now. But I am new school fitness that loves the old school style. I like writing out my meals and diet in notebooks. Plus i like to write out my work outs since i dont follow anyone set plan. easy to track reps and weight that way. just takes time to go through it all. Maybe I’m missing something and this tool is already out there?

    1. Hey Kurtis-

      I like how you mentioned “new school fitness that loves the old school style.” Believe it not, there is a fitness gadget out there for everyone… keep checking back and I’ll deliver an update on fitness gadgets 2.0.


  8. I get that fitness watches are really taking off but I am not sure they are for me. I find my self to be more old school. I am the guy that brings my notepad and pen to the gym and tracks everything down on my own. I like being able to go back and look at progress and dedication from writing everything out. But, I would love some of that nice fitness equipment in my home.

    1. Kurtis… I can’t be mad at you. Lots of people like doing things old school style. However technology has revolutionized how we do things now. Trust me… these watches are only the beginning!
