Nike+ FuelBand Pedometer Watch
$99 with free shippingEXPIRED
Lowest By: $31
Is It Worth It?: If you've been looking to get active, the Nike+ FuelBand could provide the incentive, as well as a $31 savings. This Editors' Choice pedometer watch tracks steps taken and calories burned. While CNET suggests that hardcore athletes look elsewhere, the reviewer was pleased overall: "There are a lot of people who could benefit from such a motivational tool, and the trophies, banners, and color charts from the Web site and app do go a long way toward spurring a less-than-athletic individual into changing up established patterns." It features an LED display, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity.
Samsung Gear Fit Fitness Tracker
Store: Supersales4less via eBay
Price: $184.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $14
Is It Worth It?: If you can't choose between a smart watch and a fitness tracker, then Samsung's Gear Fit could be the right fit for you. An Editors' Choice pick at $185, it's compatible with most Samsung smartphones and features a curved 1.8" Super AMOLED display, a heart rate sensor, and notification of emails, SMS, and incoming calls. Although most reviewers were left wanting more from this device performance-wise, The Verge called the Gear Fit's touchscreen display "gorgeous to look at: vibrant, colorful, and with exceptional viewing angles. It’s also easy to read outdoors — critical for a fitness device."
Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 Neo Watch
Store: AT&T Wireless
$149.25 plus padding with free shippingEXPIRED
Lowest By: $50
Is It Worth It?: Don't need anything more than basic fitness features with your smart watch? Then opt for the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 Neo, which includes a built-in heart rate monitor and accelerometer. It's worth noting that you won't be losing any major features by opting for this model over the more expensive Gear 2 (which includes a camera). "The Gear 2 Neo is in most ways identical to the Gear 2, only dropping the camera and the price," said Wired UK's reviewer. To get the Gear 2 Neo at the Editors' Choice price of $149, add it and two other accessories to your cart. (This screen protector 2-pack costs $5.) Excluding padding, you'll save $50 on this watch.
