If you are still clinging on to your New Year resolution to “get fit in 2017”, let's give you an added boost of motivation by getting you to look all snazzy while pushing you to take small healthy steps each day. At least. Fitness trackers are not a new phenomenon but like I always believe a little bit of cuteness goes a long way...specially in boosting our morale on those days when we’d rather run to a pizza than the gym.
We’ve found you some that are stylish yet highly affordable.
1. BellaBeat LEAF
Shaped like a leaf, BellaBeat LEAF is charming and designed exclusively for women. It can be worn as a bracelet, necklace or even a brooch by clipping it on the shirt collar. Made with American ash wood and stainless steel, LEAF syncs with iOS and Android smartphones over WiFi. The primary function of LEAF is to inform you about stress patterns, movement, sleep and reproductive health. Forget diamonds, you'll want these smart jewelry pieces instead.
LEAF is available in five different colours & patterns and the price starts from Rs 8,089 and is shipped worldwide.
2. Misfit Bloom Necklace
Wearable tech is mostly about wrists, but here’s something you can wear on your neck as well! The Bloom necklace is a celebration of floral patterns usually found in nature and vaguely resembles a celtic pattern. It works as an accessory with Misfit Shine. Since it works with Shine, you’ll first have to pop it inside the Bloom necklace. This necklace works as a pedometer keeping a tab on your activities, steps taken, distance covered and calories burned. You can view your logs and progress on iOS and Android app.
Bloom necklace is definitely one of the nicest-looking fitness accessories. Buy MisFit Bloom Necklace for just Rs 5,995.
