Watch Out! Fitness Trackers are Becoming High Fashion

Two rows of bikes in front of me was Laurissa, my spinning teacher. Clipped to the side of her sports bra was a piece of jewelry the size of a small brooch. It was silver and shaped like a leaf. “Why so Fancy?”, I asked her. “It’s a fitness tracker”, she said matter-of-factly.

The fitness trackers have taken another step forward. It started as a question of “if you will ever get one” to “when you will get one”, to finally “what accessory are you wearing that is discretely disguised as a fitness tracker”. The options are endless, see here for some that are suitable for even the smallest budget. Companies like Mobile Mob offer accessories like replacement bands to change the way a device looks or simply to replace a broken strap. Fitness trackers are no longer just for tech companies and sports brands. High end designers are getting involved in the renaissance. If you don’t believe me just take a look below.
