Fitbit is the global leader in wearables sales. There is a reason its trackers sell so well. They are simple to use, reliable, look smart, provide great vitals statistics and have an excellent app behind them. With Ionic going on sale in October, the company now has twelve different devices for tracking steps and calories. You can still purchase all of these, although some of the older devices have been superseded with new versions.
Garmin was an early mover and pioneer in the wearables market. For those who are very serious about tracking their athletic pursuits, the company sells a range of sports watches. Garmin’s strategy is centered on purpose-built devices for consumers who are interested running, cycling, swimming, golfing and more. For those who are simply looking to be more active, there is also an ever increasing selection of fitness trackers.

Yes, you can still buy a Pebble watch. The startup, which is credited for being one of the first companies to launch the modern smartwatch, was taken over by Fitbit just under a year ago. The deal saw the San Francisco outfit acquire its intellectual property, software and key personnel, but not its hardware.
The fate of existing customers was left in doubt following the acquisition, but Fitbit put some of these fears to rest. An update to the iOS and Android versions of the app was released earlier this year that ended the smartwatches’ dependency on Pebble’s cloud services.
Following its acquisition of Withings, Nokia has a range of connected health devices. This includes fitness trackers, WiFi scales, connected blood pressure monitors and more.
