fitness tracker

A wrist-worn device that can detect some combination of walking steps, running distance, heart rate, sleep patterns and swimming laps. Fitness bands interact via Bluetooth with an app in a mobile device that configures the device and receives the wearer's activity data.

Smartwatch Fitness
Most smartwatches support some number of fitness activities via a health app. However, just as the smartphone combined phone, media player, camera and a raft of other devices into one, there may be little difference between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker in the future.
