Connected fitness has been around for a few years and while there’s no point preaching to the converted, the benefits of measuring your activity, setting goals and achieving them through connected fitness products are very real.

We’re a lot more active than we used to be as a nation and the trend for healthy eating and getting in shape shows no signs of abating, but there are those of us who still need to really tap into our potential in what we can get out of our bodies. Whether we’re dedicated marathon runners or even just getting out the door for a brisk walk, these health and fitness products can make all the difference. Here five top fitness trackers and sports watches, all available at Harvey Norman, who have highly trained staff to help you with any query you might have.

FitBit Blaze

With advanced technology in a versatile design, this device is built to track your workouts, monitor your performance stats and gauge your progress. PurePulse continuous heart rate and multi-sport modes enhance exercise. All-day activity, sleep tracking, and call, text and calendar notifications help you to track your day. And interchangeable band and frames and customisable clock faces on the hi-res colour touch screen let you personalise your style.

FitBit™ Charge HR | Heart Rate & Activity Wristband

FitBit™ Charge HR
FitBit™ Charge HR

Monitor your heart rate automatically and continuously on your wrist to accurately track calorie burn, maintain workout intensity, maximise training and optimise health. Normal activity trackers only count your steps – this is fine but if you’re doing other exercise that is not step-based (weight lifting etc.) it doesn’t count them. With the Charge HR with built-in Heart Rate monitoring it can track all activity regardless whether it’s step-based or not.

Garmin Forerunner 15 GPS running watch

This GPS running watch is idea for a beginner runner, someone who is new to running, but wants to track their progress and activity. Forerunner 15 counts your steps and the calories you burn all day. When you upload your data to Garmin Connect, this allows you to monitor your progress toward fitness goals and see overall fitness trends. Forerunner 15 also reminds you when it’s time to move if you’ve been sitting for more than an hour. When you get that cue to move, just walk for a couple of minutes to reset the inactivity indicator.

Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS running watch

This watch is ideal for the advanced runner; for someone who runs more often and is keen to track all their metrics, including heart rate. Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges — and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app’s wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications.

Apple Watch Sport | 42mm Space Grey Aluminium Case with Black Sport Band

Apple Watch Sport features anodised aluminium cases with a silver, space grey, gold or rose gold finish. There’s also a wide range of interchangeable straps made from a variety of materials. Apple Watch has breakthrough technologies like the Digital Crown, Taptic Engine and Force Touch. Has up to 18 hours of battery life.
