So here’s the thing about health: We all want to be healthy, but will never invest enough in personal health – not in terms of time, and certainly not financially! Somehow, we are all constantly looking for a shortcut to becoming healthy. Now, a fitness band may not necessarily qualify to be a “shortcut”, but it can most definitely be a simple way to incorporate fitness into one’s daily life. Afterall, if you are seeing how many steps you are taking daily, or how many calories you burnt, we’re sure you will be motivated to push yourself a little more.
But these fitness bands can sometimes be daunting for most of us, because of their price. For all the penny wise Indians out there (including me), TheHealthOrange decided to track down the best fitness bands that are easily available and most reasonably priced in India. We hope that they can help you burn calories without burning a hole in your pocket!

Best Fitness Bands In India – Our Top 7 Picks!
Xiaomi Mi Band 2
The updated version of Xiaomi Mi Band, Mi Band 2 comes with a range of added features that the earlier version lacked. The band comes with a heart rate monitor as well as a touch screen OLED display. Offering a battery backup of 20 days (no kidding), it lets you track and monitor your calories, distance covered as well as sleep hours using the Fit Band app on your phone (android as well as iOS).
Price: Rs 1999 on Amazon
Offering holistic healthy lifestyle coaching, the GOQii Life fitness band promises to let you have an overall balance of the mind, body and soul with its one of a kind technology. The band is endowed with advanced algorithms and motion sensors that will allow you to not only to track steps, sleep and distance covered, but also karma points, nutrition and overall lifestyle. It comes with a personal coach subscription too!
Price: Rs 1999 (with three months subscription of coach) and Rs 2999 (with 6 months subscription of coach).
Working well with the Healthifyme app, Yu Fit is designed and priced in competition with the Mi Band. It offers an OLED display that shows activity record, time and task reminders. You can track your steps, calories, and sleep, as well as hire fitness experts in line with your budget.
Price: Rs 999 (Sadly, it is almost always out of stock but keep trying!)
HealthSense PD-102 Pedometer Smartwatch
Not a fan of bands that are exclusively health oriented? Fret not! What if we offered you a regular looking digital watch that can monitor your steps and calories, among others? Yes, the HealthSense PD-102 Pedometer is a smartwatch that lets you do all this without making you look like a health freak! It comes with a large and clear display and is capable of storing information for up to 7 days. However, it lacks a heart rate monitor or mobile app support.
Price: Rs 1699 on Amazon
Enerz Go Fit
The Enerz Go Fit lets you analyse your sleep patterns and offers data about the quality of your sleep. With data storage of 7 days and battery backup of 2 weeks, this band is definitely worth its price. The band’s accuracy is much higher than Yu Fit. However, it is not waterproof.
Price: Rs 1149 on Amazon
Intex FitRist Pulzz
An upgraded version of the first FitRist, this band is way more stylish and not only comes with a heart rate monitor, but also with a larger touchscreen display, camera/mp3 control, notification alerts, and alarms, among others. Another unique feature of the Pulzz is that it comes with a hydration reminder, something not found in many fitness bands. The only drawback is that the mobile app is a little buggy, but with so many features at such an affordable price we can’t complain!
Price: Rs 1799 on Flipkart
Offering the technology for counting calories, recording sleep time, tracking steps and distance covered among others, Noise Trace is one of the most affordable fitness bands that looks like a traditional watch. What’s more is that it’s perfect for our Indian monsoons, as the band is water resistant and comes with 6 days of battery life.
Price: Rs 1499
