January is a time where many people plan to get fitter for 2022, joining the gym and setting goals to walk 10,000 steps a day.
And if you make it to the end of the month without scrapping those plans, then you’re much more likely to stick to them long term.
Many people don’t want to fork out cash for tech if it’s going to sit in a drawer with a flat battery after three weeks - especially with Fitbits and Apple Watches costing upwards of £100.
But a deals expert has revealed six fitness trackers under £50 that are absolutely worth the money.
Tom Church, deal expert and co-founder ofLatestDeals.co.uk, recently became a new dad, and in a bid to avoid getting a ‘dad-belly’, he trailed out some of the best value fitness trackers to save money and hit your goals.
He said: "In 2022 I have some big fitness goals. I'm a new dad and getting three to four hours of sleep a night. My metabolism has dropped off a cliff and a sneaky dad belly is seeping through. I need to work out more and keep track of my activity levels.
"So we started looking into fitness trackers. There's so much choice it can be overwhelming, but if you're just looking to track calories burned, steps, with a timer and perhaps a log of your workouts, you don't need to be spending more than £50.”
Starting from £19.99, here are six bargain fitness trackers from Currys, Argos, Amazon, and Very that will help you hit your fitness goals this year.
Tom joked: "The only thing they don't do is get you in the gym. That's on you!"
