Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Difference Between A Fitness Tracker And A Smartwatch?

A fitness tracker helps you keep track of your health and exercise by collecting data specifically related to your workouts. A smartwatch will have a more complicated interface and is designed to make connecting to your phone easier.

Both fitness trackers and smartwatches can overlap in terms of functionality, with many smartwatches having fitness tracker-like features and many fitness trackers are now able to connect with your phone to display notifications.

The overlap is such that for the latest models, the terms ‘fitness tracker’ and ‘smartwatch’ are interchangeable with few difficulties.

What Is A Smart Band?

The term smart band is used to describe a type of fitness tracker that is worn on the wrist. This kind of tracker does not have as many features as a smartwatch but is more than capable of delivering any information or data you need about your workout.

Their compact size and focus on sport mean that there are fewer distractions during your workout than you would have with a smartwatch, making them a popular choice for dedicated exercisers.

Can I Use My Fitness Tracker Without A Phone?

Some models of fitness trackers can be set up without a smartphone, allowing for completely independent use as any data collected will be stored in the watch itself.

If you can, it is always a good idea to connect to a smartphone as you will have access to more data - you will find that the data on a fitness tracker frequently gets overwritten as there is not enough memory - or more detailed information collection for your workout.
