The old school pedometer is a thing of the past.  It's time to upgrade to the latest and greatest... a fitness tracker.  If you're looking to lose weight, increase your physical activity, or simply improve your overall health, a personal activity tracker can help you reach your goal.
The devices on the market today are much smarter, more accurate, and do a whole lot more than measure how much you walk. Used with a companion Web account or mobile app, they give you new insight into your lifestyle.

Activity trackers still count how many steps you take, but also keep track of the miles you walk/run, show you day-by-day how much physical activity you get, calculate the calories you burn, and some even collect data about your sleep patterns. Some sync with heart rate monitors and other devices to give you more accurate readings of what's going on with your body.

Design varies considerably. Several popular activity trackers look like bracelets and a few resemble watches, but there are also clip-on devices that are small enough to put in your pocket or clip on your bra.

It doesn't matter what your health goals might be: get moving or full fitness overhaul, using a personal fitness tracking device can go a long way toward helping you understand if the exercise and health habits.

Here are a few to consider:

Jawbone UP
