The fitness bracelet market is constantly replenishing with new models. Previously, these were the simplest devices with a miniature display that could hardly do anything. But gradually, devices began to appear that could track a variety of physical activity. Now fitness trackers monitor not only the heart rate, some of them even know how to measure blood pressure! It is these devices that will be discussed in this article.

GSMIN WR11 (2019)
This fitness bracelet surprises even at the purchase stage. You will receive the device packed in a round box, as if you were buying shoe polish or some kind of canned food. Inside is a fitness tracker and documentation. The main advantage of the device is the color display. Partly because of him, the device received a very high price tag. It can also boast of synchronization with a variety of smartphones, even old devices based on Windows Phone are supported!
Coming back to the screen, its diagonal is 0.96 inches. Unfortunately, it cannot be called ideal. The fact is that the display may fade a little outdoors, especially on a clear sunny day. The rest is difficult to find fault with him. It contains all the information the user needs, including heart rate, time, date, battery charge and much more.
If we are talking about the battery, then it has a tiny capacity: only 90 mAh. This made the fitness bracelet extremely lightweight. At the same time, the device still does not require frequent recharging – connecting the mains adapter will be required about once every ten days. Or once a week, if you measure your pulse and blood pressure very often.
I must say that the device does an excellent job with the above tasks. But many competitors, if you try to determine blood pressure with their help, are godlessly lying. Interestingly, there is also an ECG function. And only she refuses to work correctly. Well, not a big loss! Adequate sleep monitoring will be considered more important to many.
The device can be sold with three different strap colors. All of them are dark, not striking. Someone will not even notice that a fitness bracelet is put on your wrist. The body of the gadget will delight you with moisture protection according to the IP67 standard. This means you can easily wash your hands without removing the fitness tracker. But diving under water in a gadget is not recommended. As mentioned above, the device turned out to be very light – its weight barely reaches 25 g. The control is realized in a sensory way, as in most other fitness bracelets existing today. Synchronization with a smartphone is carried out via Bluetooth 4.0. The display can show the name of the caller and part of the message contained in the notification.
Despite the high cost of GSMIN WR11 (2019), the device did not receive a GPS chip. It is for the best, because the navigation module is actively consuming battery power. Recording routes of jogging can be assigned to your smartphone, because it is also always with you.
- Very light weight;
- There is a decent moisture protection;
- A good vibration motor is built in;
- The display is color;
- Good accuracy when measuring pressure;
- There is a heart rate monitor and sleep monitoring;
- Decent build quality.
- On the street, the screen fades;
- Raw companion app
- The alarm does not track sleep phases;
- Not the most convenient charging attachment to the bracelet;
- High price.
Another fitness tracker with a familiar rectangular shape, with a silicone strap and OLED display. Its packaging is more standard – it is a simple cardboard box with a transparent insert. It makes it clear that the device comes with two additional straps in different colors. Perhaps this is the only reason why the device is not sold for a penny.
Unlike the model discussed above, the BIZZARO F550 screen is monochrome. Information on it is displayed with a resolution of 64 × 128 pixels. Not an exorbitant result, but for time, date and heart rate this is quite enough. Well, if you want to read messages coming to your smartphone, then it's better to get a smart watch.
Modern fitness bracelets often get some moisture protection. BIZZARO F550 is no exception to the rule, the IP67 standard is declared here. A wireless module Bluetooth 4.0 is hidden under the body of the device. To synchronize with a smartphone, you must first install a special application developed for iOS and Android. After that, the fitness bracelet will be able to display various notifications, and not just the measurement results. Receiving one is accompanied by a noticeable vibration, so it is quite difficult to miss a call and message.
Well, how does this gadget show itself if you do physical activity? From the very best side, but with reservations! In particular, there are some complaints about the heart rate monitor. The heart rate is measured correctly. However, the device does not know how to do this on an ongoing basis. You should not worry about this, only much more expensive wearable devices created by eminent manufacturers are able to measure the pulse 24 hours a day. As for the pressure measurements, then you will find a result close to the most accurate. This is good news! And there is also a calorie counter, which no fitness bracelet can do without. Sleep monitoring has not been forgotten either. In a word, it is difficult to find fault with the functionality. Unless you expect a high-quality step counter from the device. Alas, in this regard, the product is no different from any other cheap fitness tracker – the pedometer readings are far from the truth.
Like almost all gadgets considered in this rating, BIZZARO F550 has an alarm clock at its disposal. However, he is not guided by the phases of sleep, the vibration motor is activated strictly at a given time.
Somewhere inside the device is an 80 mAh battery. It would seem that the parameter is close to the battery inside the fitness bracelet discussed above, so the battery life should be similar. No matter how it is! Reviews for the BIZZARO F550 show that a full charge is enough for a couple of days of operation. However, it is possible that the unhappy buyers got a marriage.
The team of authors believes that this fitness bracelet is worth buying if you are not sorry for the money spent. The device turned out to be convenient and light, but it still has a number of serious drawbacks. If you know the bill for money, then it is better to consider the option of buying some other model, since our rating of the best fitness trackers with pressure measurement does not end on the BIZZARO F550.
- Very light weight;
- There is a good vibration motor;
- The set includes additional straps;
- Implemented moisture protection according to the IP67 standard;
- Sleep monitoring and heart rate monitor are present;
- Accurate blood pressure measurement;
- Relatively low cost.
- The display is monochrome;
- Short battery life;
- The alarm does not detect sleep phases;
- The pedometer lies a lot.
QUMANN QSB 08+
This fitness bracelet has an oval shape, like most of the competition. The device is easily inserted into the silicone strap, which can be black, blue or light green. The manufacturer of this fitness tracker decided to achieve a very low cost. Well, he succeeded, sellers ask for no more than 1600 rubles for QUMANN QSB 08+. But at what cost did the Chinese achieve this?
The savings are most visible on the display. And the point is not even that it cannot be called colored. The screen turned out to be extremely small, its diagonal is only 0.42 inches. Needless to say, even the caller's name does not fit here? And you should definitely forget about the text of the messages. It is impossible to find fault only with the touchscreen substrate of the display, which regularly responds to the user's touch.
The savings are also noticeable in the body of the device. It is waterproof, but only according to the IP65 standard. In fact, the gadget is not afraid only of rain. It is recommended to remove the fitness bracelet from your wrist even if you decide to wash your hands. Well, there is nothing to say about taking a bath or shower – it can instantly disable the device.
QUMANN QSB 08+ is perhaps the lightest representative of our rating. The weight of the device is only 15 g. Is there really a simplified battery inside? Indeed, its capacity is only 70 mAh. Therefore, the buyer does not need to wait one and a half to two weeks of operation from a full charge. By the way, charging takes place in the usual way – the gadget is removed from the strap and then inserted into the complete cradle.
What can this device do? Firstly, QUMANN QSB 08+ can be synchronized with a smartphone, for which it uses technology Bluetooth 4.2. In this case, the gadget will notify by vibration about calls and notifications. It can also be turned into a smartphone camera remote control. Secondly, the device allows you to monitor physical activity. It even stimulates the user by reminding him that he has already been too late. The heart rate monitor is able to work here throughout the workout. But it is better to set the metering on demand, in this case the battery charge will be consumed less actively. And the fitness bracelet can also measure blood pressure. But it's too approximate: many people will be unpleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the readings.
It remains to add that QUMANN QSB 08+ can be left on at night to monitor sleep. However, sometimes you still have to do this, because you need to charge this gadget sometime.
Before buying a fitness bracelet, be sure to check if it has Russian language support. The fact is that the first versions of the gadget did not understand the Cyrillic alphabet. Such a device will not even display the first line of the message that came to the smartphone, showing only the icon. But even a fitness bracelet supporting Russian language cannot be called thoughtful: a notification from any third-party application is displayed here with a single icon, which does not allow distinguishing messages in Viber from messages in WhatsApp.
- Low cost;
- Very low weight;
- Sleep monitoring implemented;
- Nice working heart rate monitor.
- Pedometer and pressure sensor are not very accurate;
- Short battery life;
- Not all fitness bracelets understand Cyrillic;
- Moisture protection is poor;
- Very small screen.
Most of the existing fitness bracelets now have an identical appearance. But sometimes devices like the FitCloud CK11S are born. This device has an atypical body, painted in bronze or silver. The thing seems fashionable, something similar could have been produced by a manufacturer of handbags and other women's accessories.
The device turned out to be quite large. On its face side there is a place for OLED – a display with a diagonal of 0.66 inches. Unfortunately, the rejection of the usual plastic affected the weight of the gadget, which reaches 28.5 g. And add to this the weight of the leather strap. As a result, the fitness bracelet will definitely be felt on the hand. However, he is still far from smart watches, which are much heavier.
This device is absolutely not afraid of water, unless we are talking about diving, as evidenced by the declared certification according to the IP67 standard. On the back of the gadget, you can see a special LED, with which the heart rate is measured. Sleep monitoring is also available to the user. Although it must be admitted that not every person agrees not to take off such a massive fitness bracelet at night. Finally, blood pressure measurement is also present here. However, the accuracy of measurements is questionable. Someone thinks that the fitness bracelet gives out completely random numbers, while someone assures that the device practically does not lie.
The rest of the device is not able to surprise with anything. It displays the name of the caller, and also provides an opportunity to read the text of the notification. Also, using a fitness tracker, you can remotely press the shutter button, which is especially important when taking selfies. Most unusual is the blood oxygen measurement function, but it certainly won't give you any truthful information.
Synchronization with a smartphone is done via Bluetooth 4.0. Why not the fifth version of the standard? The introduction of a modern wireless module would require additional investment. In this case, this representative of the rating of the best fitness bracelets would not have been sold for 3200 rubles.
The rather large dimensions of the device made it possible to place a capacious battery inside. To be precise, its capacity is 110 mAh. Many smartwatches can boast of this parameter! However, for some reason, the fitness bracelet refuses to function for any length of time. The manufacturer claims only 120 hours of standby time. This is ridiculous, because some competitors can be hand held for several weeks!
- Uses a large curved screen;
- Unique design;
- Not very high cost;
- Good moisture protection;
- Several color options;
- There is a pedometer and sleep monitoring;
- Very wide functionality;
- The strap is made of leather.
- The display is monochrome;
- Short battery life;
- Heavy enough weight;
- Measurement accuracy is far from ideal.
Jet Sport FT-7
This fitness bracelet is one of those equipped with a double layer strap. This allows the accessory to be two-tone. The top layer of the strap is black, while the inner layer can be painted red or some other color.
If you forget about the color of the strap, the rest of the fitness tracker is unlikely to surprise you with anything. And how could it be otherwise if they ask for less than two thousand rubles for the device? I am glad that the manufacturer did not save at least on moisture protection. IPX7 standard allows you to wash your hands without removing the gadget from your wrist. In theory, the device can also handle swimming, unless you want to dive. Still, it recommends leaving the fitness bracelet outside the pool. And why hold it on your hand, if there is simply no special 'Swimming' mode here?
The product has a familiar design. There is an LED on the back of this representative of our rating. With its help, the pulse is checked. Most often, the measurement result is as accurate as possible. An exception to the rule is measurements during an active workout, when the hand is sweating profusely. As for measuring blood pressure, in this regard, the Jet Sport FT-7 is much inferior to specialized medical devices. For the most part, it all depends on the age of the user. The most accurate results are observed in adults under the age of 40. Alas, this fitness bracelet will not work for older people, or they will have to do without such a useful function.
Basically, our selection consists of tiny gadgets, the screen of which displays only the most important information. Jet Sport FT-7 is perhaps the largest representative of this rating. On its front panel there is OLED – a display, the diagonal of which has been brought to 0.86 inches. The only pity is that it is monochrome. But on the other hand, such a screen is better read in the sun.
Even larger dimensions have an effect on weight. The fitness bracelet is felt on the wrist, especially at first. In the future, you remember about the device only in those moments when it starts to vibrate, notifying about an incoming call, a message received or the need to practice. There is a very capacious battery inside the gadget. However, it is still not enough for long battery life. Most likely, the processor and firmware are to blame for this. You will have to use the charger every few days.
What else can the Jet Sport FT-7 do in addition to the features discussed above? Perhaps nothing. You can only mark the possibility of remote control of the smartphone camera. Synchronization, by the way, is carried out through Bluetooth 4.0. Based on the name of the gadget, one would expect a GPS chip or something similar in it. Alas, the device does not have it.
The Jet Sport FT-7 is one of the most popular models on the Russian fitness bracelet market. And this is the case when buyers are mainly attracted by the price. They do not pay attention to the fact that the heart rate monitor and pedometer are regularly wrong. The main thing is that the device is durable.
- There is some moisture protection;
- Very low cost;
- Extremely large display
- Sleep monitoring is available.
- The screen is monochrome;
- Measurement accuracy can be very low;
- Short battery life;
- Not all copies support Russian.
This fitness bracelet is sold for a little more money. But 2200 rubles is not the amount that you will seriously regret if the device suddenly fails. Especially if it happens through your fault. The SMA B2 fitness tracker itself is unlikely to break, there are absolutely no complaints about the quality of its assembly. And the assortment also evokes joyful feelings: on sale you can find a fitness bracelet with straps of different colors, from standard black to bright orange.
This device includes a touchscreen display with a diagonal of 0.91 inches. It would seem an outrageous parameter! But in reality, the screen is very small, as it is extremely narrow. This is evidenced by its resolution, which is 128 x 32 pixels. As a result, the device is able to display time, date, current heart rate, but nothing more. Most often, secondary information is shown in the form of pictograms. If you want to take your smartphone out of your pocket as rarely as possible, then it is better to look at a wearable device with a slightly larger display.
The manufacturer of the gadget has declared IP67 water resistance. This means that rain is not a hindrance to the device. But before going to the pool, the fitness bracelet must be removed.
A good vibration motor is hidden under the body of this device, the effect of which is felt even in the confusion. The gadget also has a wireless module Bluetooth 4.0, which is used to synchronize with a smartphone. The battery is not forgotten, of course. Its capacity is 80mAh. Many of the competitors reviewed in this article with the exact same battery only last three to four days, and this is at best! As for the SMA B2 fitness bracelet, the manufacturer claims 360 hours of standby time. It is clear that the regular use of certain features will lead to a decrease in battery life. But in any case, you will not use the charger more than once a week. However, not in any. Some people complain about buying a defective SMA B2. Such a gadget requires recharging much more often. I am glad that this process is as simple as possible, the device only needs to be removed from the silicone strap, after which it remains to insert it into any full-size USB port.
Unfortunately, this model is not one of those that are able to provide the most truthful information. Least of all lies the pedometer, although someone will still have complaints about it. The heart rate monitor, for the sake of which such devices are taken, is a little more mistaken. Well, the measurement of pressure here is generally more a fiction than a really working function.
- Very easy recharging;
- Sleep monitoring available;
- Some moisture protection is present;
- A large number of color options are available;
- Low cost.
- Measurement accuracy is very low;
- Unpretentious monochrome display;
- Not all work stably Bluetooth – connection;
- A poorly functional companion application.
Smart Band M3
Another standard fitness bracelet in our ranking. It also has a rounded shape. The usual cradle with a short cable is used to charge it. Removing the device from the silicone strap does not cause any problems. The strap, by the way, can be of different colors. But much more important is the fact that the color display is here. As you may have noticed, most often cheap fitness trackers are equipped with a monochrome screen.
Continuing the conversation about the display, one cannot fail to note its large dimensions. The diagonal is 0.78 inches and the resolution is 128 x 80 pixels. In this regard, the device can be compared to the incredibly popular fitness bracelets from Xiaomi, which were not included in our rating due to their inability to measure blood pressure. All useful information is displayed on the built-in screen here, including the text of the notification from the smartphone.
Unfortunately, the device still has certain drawbacks. First of all, questions arise about the installed battery. How does it run out so quickly with a 110 mAh capacity? Is Bluetooth really spending energy so actively? No, this is done by a GPS chip that records the training route, as well as the running speed. Disable it, after which the operating time increases significantly. However, there is no need to expect records from Smart Band M3. In this regard, he still loses to more eminent competitors.
This model is usually used as a pedometer. But, as you already understood, she also knows how to measure blood pressure and pulse. The measurement accuracy is acceptable, but nothing more.
The main problem with Smart Band M3 is the prevalence of this name. In China, the original device is already being forged. As a result, you may stumble upon a model that suddenly got a monochrome display. Or a device without a GPS chip. Or a gadget that can't measure blood pressure. In short, it is extremely difficult to make a purchase of Smart Band M3. Fakes are identical to the original only in terms of water protection – absolutely all copies are endowed with it.
- Large, high-resolution display;
- There is a GPS chip;
- Sleep monitoring available;
- Synchronization with old smartphones is possible;
- Relatively easy charging;
- Implemented some moisture protection;
- Low cost.
- There are many fakes;
- Not very long running time;
- The measurement accuracy is not perfect.
INTELLIGENCE HEALTH BRACELET M2
The cheapest representative of our rating. You can buy this model for only 600 rubles! Although, of course, most online stores sell it twice as expensive. But even 1200 rubles is the amount that even many elderly people are ready to spend. What do you get for this money, how wide a list of shortcomings will you have to face?
Of course, a monochrome display is installed here. The technology OLED was used to create it. Therefore, the screen is energy efficient. Its diagonal is tiny, only 0.42 inches. The display shows notifications about received messages, but only in the form of icons, you will not be able to get acquainted with the contents.
Almost all modern fitness bracelets are capable of boasting at least some moisture protection. This one is no exception, as evidenced by the IP67 certificate. You can easily wash your hands and walk in the rain. You should remove the device from your wrist only before entering the pool.
A device with a silicone strap must be paired with a smartphone, which is synchronized with Bluetooth 4.0 LE. Otherwise, you simply will not be able to get acquainted with the history of your training.
The weight of the device is 20 g. This indicates the presence of a simple battery inside. Indeed, the battery capacity is only 70 mAh. However, this does not prevent the fitness bracelet from working for a sufficiently long time. The manufacturer claims that in standby mode, the charge dries up only after 240 hours! In practice, the result is still less. And if you regularly check your pulse and blood pressure, then the operating time decreases rapidly. Still, this fitness tracker lasts a little longer than many of its competitors reviewed in this ranking.
Well, what is the accuracy of measurements made by a fitness bracelet? She's not to hell. Almost any hand movement is perceived as steps. The heart rate monitor also lies, albeit much less. Well, it is generally better not to measure blood pressure here, especially if an elderly person is going to do this. However, what else did you expect from such an inexpensive fitness tracker? Is it worth buying it in this case? Complex issue. We would recommend taking it only if you do not agree to spend a hundred rubles more. In the end, the devices discussed above cope with basic tasks much better, and they ask for a little more.
- Decent battery life
- Sleep monitoring available;
- There is moisture protection;
- The fitness bracelet is very lightweight;
- Extremely low price.
- Inaccurate measurements;
- Very small display
- Only one strap color.
As you may have noticed, even the best fitness bracelets with a blood pressure function are far from perfect. In some of them, the readings of some sensors are shamelessly lying, in other devices the display fades, and still others have a short battery life. Why can't a fitness bracelet be born without flaws? Everything is very simple. Nobody will buy an expensive fitness tracker. If there is a decent amount on hand, then the choice will be made in favor of smart watches. It is from the manufacturer's desire to save money that many of the disadvantages found in the above fitness trackers arise.
