Keeping on the Trend Track

Whether you are a marathon runner, avid hiker or just a Sunday dog walker, you may have been tempted by the fitness craze that has gripped the nation. The wearable fitness tracker. We all know the ones we mean, they track your goal to 10,000 steps a day and monitor your sleeping habits through the ease of an app. But if you are anything like me then you might not have been as impressed with their fashion forwardness as much as their functionality. So for all the ladies out there that care enough to wear one but not enough to let it ruin their outfit, we have put together a selection of fitness trackers that allow you to monitor your steps whilst still looking stylish.

Fitbit Flex Bangle (£69.99, www.fitbit.com)

This beautiful bangle could easily be mistaken for a fashion statement rather than a sports accessory with its metal finish and colour options. However, the bangle is an accessory and doesn’t actually have the tracker included. In order to track your sporting activities you will need to purchase the Flex itself which will set you back another £69.99

Fitbit is well known to anyone looking for a fitness tracker, but unfortunately despite its interchangeable skins it is not best known for being a stand out fashion accessory.
