Shopping for a wearable? Our best wearable deals will mean you are all good on the price, but there are also three main types to consider
A smartwatch offers apps and almost phone-like functionality, at the expense of battery life. Simple band trackers are the best bet for low-cost exercise monitoring and step counting. And if you want to train for a marathon, we recommend a GPS runner's watch. You'll find deals on all three kinds below.
In recent years people have become obsessed with counting their steps, monitoring their heart rates and using tech to get the most out of their workouts. And, this time of year has some great bargains for you.
Why not use all the 'new year, new me' chatter to update your old tech, or buy a cheap fitness tracker in the hope it'll spur you to go for that run you're always say you'll do.
At ShortList, we spend a fair amount of time trying out the best Fitbits, best Android smartwatches and best fitness trackers - all in the hope of finding our readers the best products, for the best prices.
