The iFit Active fitness tracker is the easiest to use, because so many functions – including a large display — are right on the device. You don’t have to use your smartphone every time. Quickly to check your steps, distance, sleep, time of day and calories burned.
Input your calories, right on the tracker, as you eat throughout the day. The display shows your “net calories” score — the difference between calories burned and calories consumed – a negative number is your goal!
Sit too much throughout the day, and the iFit Active tracker band will prompt you to move with a message on the display and a gentle buzz on your wrist every 45 minutes.
The iFit Active tracker is versatile – wear it on your wrist, with the clip or just put the pod in your pocket. A range of colors are available to coordinate with your daily look. iFit Active syncs with your iOS or Android phone and automatically creates workouts for iFit-enabled fitness equipment to complete the daily activity goals you set.
Sold at Sears, Sports Authority, Walmart and other fitness retailers at $129.
