Xiaomi Mi Band 2

If you’re searching for a cheaper fitness tracking option, look no further than the Xiaomi Mi Band 2. For less than $30, you’ll receive all the basics of a typical tracker, plus additional features to help you reach your health goals. It counts steps, measures distance traveled, shows calories burned, as well as records your sleep cycle and monitors your heart rate. The Mi Fit app for your smartphone displays this data in a clear manner so you can adjust your fitness habits accordingly. The wristband device can show notifications about calls, texts, and certain apps, and even remind you to stand up and move if you’ve been sitting too long. Not bad for such a low price point!

The Mi Band’s battery can last up to 20 days before needing a charge, and its comfortable, waterproof design means you can wear it in the water without fear of damage. Xiaomi’s fitness tracker is perfect for those trying to be more economical in their spending.
