Super Chic Fitness Trackers That Don’t Look Like an Alcohol Monitor
Like jewelry, but better
Activity trackers are great in theory: They count your steps, monitor your sleep and make you feel like a healthier version of yourself. So often, though, they look like court-mandated monitoring bracelets. Not exactly the look we’re going for. So here are a handful of chic new wearables that secretly keep up with your health.
Fab cuff or workout motivator? We'll never tell. Mira bracelets ($169) come in colors like gold and rosé, but they don’t actually have to be worn as bracelets at all. The middle black disk can be slipped out and clipped onto your clothes when you’re in the gym. And bonus: The corresponding app also features a “Need Inspiration” button that tells you when you'll earn a glass of wine.

There’s currently a wait list for these babies ($120), which can be worn as a necklace, bracelet or brooch. In addition to tracking sleep and steps, the Leaf tracks your menstrual cycle and monitors stress levels by recording breathing patterns.
withings activite pop
This is just a normal watch, right? Nope. The Withings Activite Pop ($150) is a water-resistant tracker that monitors steps and swimming. Oh, and sleep. It has a silent alarm that wakes you up with gentle vibrations (aka the most zen way to start your day).
This guy definitely gives you your money’s worth. For just $70, the Misfit Shine tracks steps taken and calories burned, monitors sleep quality and goes with an app that has a daily food journal to help you make better choices.
You’re swamped at work, but that’s no excuse for being glued to your desk all day. A cool feature of the sleek Jawbone Up2 ($100) is that it periodically vibrates lightly to remind you to get off your butt and move a little bit. Also, its new, thinner design blends right in your bracelet stack.
