The Best Affordable Fitness Trackers

Fitness trackers are great companions for anyone that wants to live an active lifestyle. The common misconception is that fitness trackers can be expensive, but the truth is that you don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars to get equipped. In fact, there are a lot of affordable fitness trackers out there.

Affordable fitness trackers still come with great features that are sought after in high-end offerings. As long as you know where to look, you’ll never have to worry about getting a fitness tracker that’s lacking in the necessary features. Without further ado, here are some of the best affordable fitness trackers right now.

Fitbit Inspire 3

When it comes to fitness trackers, one name that quickly comes to mind is Fitbit. The company has a wide range of fitness trackers for all budgets. If you’re trying to save up, consider getting the Fitbit Inspire 3.

The Fitbit Inspire 3 is currently the best cheap fitness tracker you can get right now. Simple and plain looking, the fitness tracker comes with all of the necessities that you need for living an active lifestyle. Fitbit has ensured that the tracker is able to keep those always on the go, prepared without having to sacrifice any major features to keep the price at a good range. The result is an amazing barebones fitness tracker that will get you through a lot of activities and will help you reach your health goals in an instant. What makes this fitness tracker special?

Let’s talk about the key features of the fitness tracker first. The Fitbit Inspire 3 comes with a slew of amazing features, including a heart rate monitor and accurate workout tracking. It even logs your sleep stages too. These key features will help you keep track of the important metrics in such a small package. The only downside is that the Fitbit Inspire 3 doesn’t come with a built-in GPS, but that might be a given, considering that the fitness tracker is only eighty dollars.

The device also gives you access to Fitbit’s Active Zone Minutes metric, touch controls, and a whopping 10 days of battery life. All of the details that you’ll need to see are placed within a beautiful AMOLED screen which could very well be the biggest upgrade that this Fitbit Inspire has over its predecessor.

This fitness tracker aces the mark in a lot of aspects, and it’s easily a good buy for your money. It’s not as grand or as feature-filled as other Fitbit fitness trackers out there, but if you’re looking for a simple companion, this is more than enough.

Fitbit Charge 4

Fitbit is a gift that keeps on giving. They have another amazing option that’s well within the budget range of those who are looking for a cheap fitness tracker. That’s none other than the Fitbit Charge 4.

The Fitbit Charge 4 is a massive improvement over its predecessor. The device is one of the best that the brand has to offer. It comes with a lot of amazing features that make us wonder if it’s really an affordable fitness tracker to begin with. That’s saying a lot for a list featuring amazing, affordable fitness trackers. For starters, this is Fitbit’s first fitness tracker that comes with built-in GPS. This means you’ll always be safe, and at the same time, you’ll be able to keep track of your best routes using this simple device. This is just a small sampling of what makes this device so amazing.

This device also introduced the Active Zone Minutes, which allows you to keep better track of your overall health. Overall, the Fitbit Charge 4 does an amazing job when it comes to making sure that you have the right details you need to keep your health and your progress in check. It can be tough finding a device that provides just as many features at this price range, so it’s well worth getting. Aside from that, the Fitbit Charge 4 is very comfortable to wear. In fact, it feels like you’re wearing nothing at all when you have this device on your wrist.

You can control the Fitbit Charge 4 with an easy-to-use touchscreen that seems a little small at first. However, you’ll find that it’s actually pretty fun and intuitive once you get over the initial hurdle of using it.

The battery of the Fitbit Charge 4 can last for up to one week. If you’re using GPS, it can go for as long as five days which isn’t bad. Sadly, the Fitbit Charge 4 doesn’t have a built-in music player.


  • Price $125.70
  • Weight 1.06 ounces
  • Heart-Rate Monitor Yes
  • GPS Yes
  • Battery Life 7 days
  • Display 1.57 inch OLED

Amazfit Bip

Next up, we have another amazing device from the great minds at Fitbit. It’s the last Fitbit device on this list, but that doesn’t make it any less special than the previous ones. We are, of course, talking about the Amazfit Bip.

The Amazfit Bip is a compact and affordable fitness tracker that packs a lot of amazing features in one place. It’s surprising to see just what this device can do, considering how small it is. While it’s not a perfect fitness tracker, the Amazfit Bip does come with everything that you need to ensure that your jogging, cycling, and resting sessions are all accounted for. Besides, despite having a few flaws, the Amazfit Bip is still an amazing device that definitely outweighs its good with all of the bad.

The Amazfit Bip looks familiar because its design is very similar to the Apple Watch. It comes with a touchscreen that features all of the metrics that you need to make sure that you’re prepared for the training session ahead. The Amazfit Bip is compatible with your smartphone, so you can get notifications through it as well. On top of all this, the Amazfit Bip comes with a built-in heart-rate monitor, GPS, and GLONASS, which tracks workouts pretty accurately. Not a lot of other fitness trackers that are cheap come with GLONASS, so this is a good opportunity to try out the feature.

The heart-rate tracker of the Amazfit Bip is surprisingly accurate even when compared to the pricier Garmin Forerunner. Inaccurate heart-rate tracking is very common when it comes to cheap fitness trackers. However, the Amazfit Bip does the feature justice, so you’re getting a lot more for your money with this tracker.

One thing we can say that’s bad about this tracker is that the screen’s display might not be to the liking of some. It feels a bit too rustic, but luckily, that doesn’t affect performance.


  • Price $69.99
  • Weight 1.17 ounces
  • Heart-Rate Monitor Yes
  • GPS Yes
  • Battery Life 45 days
  • Display 1.28 inch TFT

Whoop 4.0

This is the first fitness tracker on this list that’s not made by Fitbit. The Whoop 4 is a stylish fitness tracker. Technically, the device isn’t cheap, as you’ll need to pay a monthly $30 subscription to get it. However, this is still a good price point in our opinion.

The Whoop 4 is definitely not for everyone. If you’re looking to find a simple fitness tracker, then this is probably the one that will spring to mind. The Whoop 4 doesn’t have a screen or built-in GPS. At first glance, it looks simply like a strap of leather that you’ll put on your wrist. This makes the Whoop 4 a bit more stylish as compared to other fitness trackers. In fact, the device is pretty easy to match even with your casual wear. Despite its simplicity, the Whoop 4 still does everything that you need to have when you’re looking for a fitness tracker.

The Whoop 4 does a great job when it comes to keeping track of your heart rate and recovery data. What it does, it does really well as the Whoop 4 provides very in-depth data that you can use to keep track of your performance very well. It features one of the most advanced trackers when it comes to heart rates. This makes the device great for professional athletes who are looking to supplement their training with data that they can use to further improve their performance.


  • Price $300.00
  • Weight 0.9 ounces
  • Heart-Rate Monitor Yes
  • GPS No
  • Battery Life 4-5 days
  • Display N/A

Wyze Band

There’s cheap, and then there’s dirt cheap. The most affordable fitness tracker that you’ll see on the market right now is the Wyze Band. While cheap, the device is still very capable.

The Wyze Band features a few keys and essential features that you’ll need in a fitness tracker. The $25 price tag might be enough to turn some people away, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that the Wyze Band is a poorly built device. In fact, it’s very capable when it comes to keeping track of your performance during exercise sessions. The device has a lot of amazing features, which makes it more than deserving to be on this list despite being as simple as it is.

The design of the Wyze Band is compact and very comfortable to wear. The display is an easy-to-read AMOLED display that can last a full week on a single charge. The device provides excellent running metrics, so it’s the perfect companion for joggers and even cyclers alike. What we really like about the fitness tracker, though is its display which is very easy to check out even when you’re actively running. From the looks of it, the Wyze Band doesn’t seem like it’s supposed to proceed at $25 at all. 

The device is designed to work with the Wyze app. You can use the app to view a record of a few important metrics, such as your average pace, calories burned, and even your BPM. The Wyze Band serves as an excellent welcoming device for those that are yet to try any fitness trackers. At such a cheap price, it’s a very interesting offer that’s hard to pass on.
