Health Tip of the Week, Sponsored by Baton Rouge General: Choosing the right activity tracker

    Jheri Corb

    All activity trackers rely on the same core technology, but each brand has a unique design and function. To help narrow your options, the fitness pros at BRG Health & Wellness suggest:

    • Have a budget in mind.
    • Know what activities you want to track.
    • Where will you wear it? Try options like wristbands, armbands or clip-ons for your clothes.
    • Is the technology easy to use? Try the functions and set-up before you buy.
    • Is it compatible with your devices and apps? Be sure to check.

    Also, be sure to read reviews on any tracker that you consider and find out about warranties and customer support.
