Top affordable wearables with a heart rate monitor

Digit Expert | 02 Feb 2020

When wearables first became available, several features such as heart rate monitoring were exclusive to the premium devices. Today, this has changed with affordable wearables that offer premium features. One of these features is heart rate monitoring. As the name suggests, heart rate monitoring tracks your heartbeat and gives users vital information. Here’s a look at some affordable wearables that pack a heart rate monitor.

Xiaomi Mi Band 4

The Mi Band 4 features a colour AMOLED display. It also features swappable bands. The company claims that the device is 5ATM water-resistant, which makes it quite useful while swimming. In addition to tracking your workout, the device can also track activities like swimming. The device’s heart rate monitor can track the user’s heart rate all through the day and give them their average heart rate. It can also track the user’s heart rate continuously during any workout, which in turn helps the user better understand how intense the workout was. It can also track your sleep and give a score based on your sleep pattern. Xiaomi promises a 14-day battery life for the Mi Band 4, which means that users don’t have to worry about charging the device regularly.

Amazfit Bip Lite

The Amazfit Bip Lite sports a 1.28-inch always-on display that features a screen, which helps improve the display’s legibility in sunlight. The wearable weighs just 32g, which is good news for anyone who doesn’t want a heavy wearable. The device offers sleep tracking and can show how much and how well you sleep. It can also track outdoor activities like cycling or running. It offers a 45-day battery life, which is very impressive and more than what most wearables offer. The device also has the ability to monitor the wearer's heart rate. 

Honor Band 5 

The Honor Band 5 is available in three colour options, so users can choose the one that best suits their style. The wearable also offers an AMOLED display that ensures vibrant colours and deeper blacks. The heart rate tracker offers users the option to track their heart rate all day and learn their average heart rate. It can also track their heart rate during a workout and give them additional information. The band is water-proof for added convenience while swimming. It also features sleep tracking as well as step tracking. Honor claims the band has a battery life of up to 14 days.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3

While Xiaomi may have released the Mi Band 4, the Mi Band 3 is still a very viable option for those on a tight budget. The device features a monochrome OLED display which can show you the time along with notifications and messages you receive on your smartphone. The heart rate monitor in the device can show users their average heart rate, while also giving them vital statistics about their workout. Speaking of workouts, the device is capable of tracking various types of indoor and outdoor activities. Xiaomi promises up to 20 days of battery life which makes it a tempting option for those who hate the thought of having another device that needs to be charged frequently.
