So you want a wearable device that can track your steps and sleep patterns and estimate how many calories you’ve burned… but you don’t want a standalone bracelet like a Fitbit and you don’t want a full-fledged smartwatch. Well, there’s a growing number of fitness-trackers that look like classic watches.
Withings has the Activité and Activité Pop. Sony’s developing the Wena Wrist. And now Runtastic has launched one of the most affordable watch/fitness trackers.
The Runtastic Moment sells for $129 and up, and looks like a standard wristwatch, but it can track your fitness stats and sync your data with a smartphone or PC using the Runtastic app.
The entry-level Runtastic Moment Basic and Fun have silicon straps and simple watch faces, while the $179 Runtastic Moment Classic and Elite have more refined designs with lugs for removable leather straps.
Each model is waterproof up to 300 feet, features LED notification lights, and tracks steps, distance, active minutes, and estimated calories burned. The watches can also vibrate to remind you to move around a bit if you’ve been idle for a long time.
