From a £30 Smart Band to the Apple Watch Series 5, eight fitness trackers that will help you hit you

If you're serious about making improvements to your health and fitness, then you need to make sure you're held accountable. By tracking and recording pace, steps, heart rate and other things that affect your fitness goals, you can ensure that you're progressing.

A smart fitness tracker is like wearing a personal trainer on your wrist and a lot cheaper as you only need to pay once and it will last years.

From checking your quality of sleep, counting your steps, playing music and delivering text and social media notifications, these eight trackers have some impressive features that will help you on your fitness journey.

Apple Watch Series 5 GPS And Cellular, £509

This is a fitness tracker for those who like to stay connected at all times. It enables you to call, text, stream your music or ask Siri a question whether you're out on a run, hiking a peak or swimming.

With the activity and health apps you can track indoor and outdoor workouts like running, cycling, and even high-intensity interval training with accurate and detailed metrics. You can measure your heart rate at any time and receive automatic alerts if it detects unusual patterns.

You'll also be alerted if the watch thinks you haven't moved enough.
