It’s never been easier—or more important—to track your health metrics than it is now. And, there have also never been more options to do so. We combed through all the top offerings on the market, and rounded up our three favorite health trackers here. Read on to see our recommendations!
Apple Watch Series 6
At the risk of being boring, we have to say it: the Apple Watch 6 is the ultimate in health trackers. The combination of potentially lifesaving health and fitness features alongside Apple’s famously seamless user experience technology make the Apple Watch 6 one of the best smartwatches on the market. You’ll be hard pressed to find another device that can measure your blood oxygen saturation, make a phone call, and play your favorite song in one fell swoop.
While we love our Apple products, Part of Whoop’s appeal is that it isn’t a smart watch. You can’t check your email, play music, or answer the phone—and sometimes, that break from the grind is what we need. Whoop is also sleek, comfortable, and waterproof, and offers some of the most insightful and accurate personalized data of any tracker we’ve tried. Whoop “learns” from your body over time, so the longer you use it, the more accurately it will be able to calculate your personal baseline, and the easier it will be for you to target your optimum health.
BEST SLEEP TRACKER
Withings Sleep Mat
Want to know how you’re sleeping, but hate the feeling of something on your wrist or finger all night? The Withings Sleep Mat fits under your mattress and monitors your sleep from there, offering insights on sleep cycles analysis (deep, light and REM), heart rate, and whether or not you snore. It also has an option to link to smart devices in your home, and you can program it to revamp your morning or bedtime routine by adjusting the lights or thermostat.
