What activity trackers do?

Activity trackers come in many styles, shapes and sizes. They tracking your activity, fitness levels, sleep, and calorie consumption. By understanding these trends, users can monitor and adjust behaviors that influence overall health and well-being.

How do activity trackers work?

Most activity trackers monitor every detail of your day with sophisticated motion sensors. Activity trackers can automatically sync your information to PCs, Macs, and select Bluetooth 4.0/Bluetooth Smart Ready devices. Depending on the model, sensors will detect walking, twitches during sleep, and even heart rate. Data from these events is transmitted to a smartphone or computer via a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection. Whether you’re interested in your sleep quality or the number of calories burned canoeing, data from these events is literally at your fingertips with the tracker’s companion smartphone app.

How are activity trackers different from smartwatches?

Although, in some instances, both devices can tell time, activity trackers are primarily dedicated to monitoring biometric data and physical activity. Smart watches leap beyond fitness, enabling users to check email, answer calls, and much more.
