The Fitbit Zip is another so-called smart pedometer option. Unlike the Striiv, however, the Zip isn’t a stand-alone device—it works in conjunction with an app on your iOS device or your computer. This small, cute gadget comes in a variety of colors: blue, magenta, white, black, and lime green. The Zip tracks steps, distance, and calories, but does not track stairs climbed.
The Zip is a great, affordable device for anyone who’s got an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and who wants to track their movement throughout the day.
Great for: walkers, joggers, office workers
Not great for: hardcore athletes, stair climbers, people without an iOS device
Price: $60, Fitbit
