This is WT VOX top 10 cheap fitness tracker for 2015-2016.
1. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Xiaomi Mi Band 1S.
Xiaomi Mi Band – The cheapest and one of the best activity trackers on the market. Update: Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is now available. Check out WT VOX preview here.
The Xiaomi Mi Band is a water-resistant fitness tracker that measures your steps and sleep pattern. It is a cheap device with good battery life. At just $13, it undercuts other basic models like the Misfit Flash and the Fitbit Zip.
The last version of the app lets you receive notifications like incoming calls and emails. The Mi Band claims 30-day battery life. From my experience, it is underestimated. I am wearing one for almost two months now, and I have not changed the battery yet. This is impressive, given that the more expensive Jawbone Up24 does not last two weeks.
2. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Misfit Flash
This is a different tracker. With your Misfit Flash, you can control your Nest thermostat or sync with your Spotify playlist.
The Flash packs the same fitness tracking and the sleep monitoring “skills” of its expensive relative, Misfit Shine. Not only that but with this tracker, you can control your Nest thermostat. The tracker knows when you wake up and will adjust the temperature of your Nest as per your settings.
Misfit Flash can also sync with your Spotify playlist and with your Logitech sound system. That means you can now hit play from your wrist. More partnerships are on the way for Misfit.
The company wants to work with IFTTT (If This Then That) for example. The merger would expand its “tricks” by more than 160 products and services. Go and get it from Amazon.
3. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Withings Activite Pop
There is a saying that smartwatches cost a lot. But, is this right? Yes and no. For sure the answer is no with Activite Pop. “The Pop” keeps the classic minimal style of its dear brother, the Activite. Still, it is three times more affordable.
It is true, the used materials are less expensive. It has a rubber band instead of leather and the glass is not from sapphire. However, it retains that classic watch look we like so much.

Features-wise, is does what its dear brother does. It can track your steps and calories, and detects when you are swimming or running. It monitors your sleep, and the silent alarm will wake you up with just a buzz.
4. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Fitbit Zip
If you don’t like wristbands, you still can track your fitness activity. The Fitbit Zip clips to your pocket, belt or bra, which is handy if you don’t want another bracelet on your wrist.
The Zip can track your steps, distance and calories burned and suggests ways you can move more during the day. Just tap the screen to see how you are doing. Using the app, you can log your food, track your health trends and see the leaderboard of you and your friends.
You can also send your friends messages to encourage or show how far you’ve gone. You can buy it by clicking on the button below.
5. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Jawbone Up Move
The Up Move is a versatile little gadget and just like “The Zip” above, you can clip it to your clothes but also wear it on your wrist. It is cheaper than the Fitbit Zip and still, it does a lot. It provides you with activity tracking, steps, calories, distance, etc. It also covers your sleep tracking – with suggestions to help you sleep better.
It is like a smart coach, giving you directions on the changes you have to follow. Move more and live healthier.
Jawbone claims that the Up Move can read your moods and gets you up when it feels like you need it. The LED display tells you the time as well as your stats. One more thing. This little gadget is splash-proof.
6. Cheap Fitness Tracker – The Cuff
This is one of the very first recorded fashion-tech jewellery. The idea is to bring together different pieces, so you can wear it as a bracelet, brooch, necklace, or as you wish. It vibrates to let you know someone is calling and buzzes quicker if you leave your phone behind.

The Cuff is also loaded up with fitness skills. It can track your steps, or calories burned. It also keeps you safe. Just press it, and it will send an alert to your friends and family along with your location, and audio of what is happening at the scene.
7. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Razer Nabu X
$39.99 is a good value for a fitness band packed with features. This one is no exception. The red, green and blue LEDs are customisable, so you will know straight away what is happening. You can have a flashing green LED for incoming calls and blue for text.
You can even choose how hard it vibrates. Double-tap the bracelet and the LEDs will show how close you are to your daily goal. Unlike most of its kind, the battery lasts between five and seven days before you have to charge it again.
More than that, it is water-resistant up to 1m. Razer Nabu X is one of the most bespoke bands around. We hope Razer will release a version 2 with an HR sensor.
8. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Lumo Lift
The Lumo Lift is a posture coach. Once you attached it to your clothes, it will buzz when it detects you are slouching. It is helpful and discreet, clinging to your clothes with a magnetic clasp.
Lumo Lift is not just a posture corrector but also a fitness tracker. It will count your calories, steps and distance. Unlike most wearables, Lumo lasts five days on a single charge.
Better posture helps avoid aches and pains and gives you a stronger, more confident look.
You’ll have to pay $79.99 for one. But, if you buy more than one device you’ll get a discount.
9. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Fitbug Orb
The Fitbug Orb is a 24/7 device – aside from when you go to take a shower, or it rains outside – that tracks sleep, steps, and estimates how many calories you’ve burned.
The Orb will also track something Fitbug calls “the aerobic steps,” which are steps taken after taking an initial 10 minutes of continuous stepping.
The Orb lets you set fitness goals and manually log workouts and log foods. It is a useful feature if you go cycling or yoga as these are some of the activities that the device can’t track.
The Orb fitness tracker contains an ordinary watch battery that can last for up to 6 months before you have to change. You can buy one from Amazon for $29
10. Cheap Fitness Tracker – Sony Mobile SWR10
Sony’s SmartBand is a lightweight tracker. The device is easy to set up and has a companion app packed with features. The SmartBand is dust and waterproof and has great battery life.
The SmartBand lets you see whether you have been driving, walking, cycling or using public transport each day.
It will also measure your sleep cycle and will wake you up at the best time by vibrating.
