- The Charge HR
We jumped straight to the Charge HR and left out the basic Charge because for the sake of 20 quid, the added heart rate monitor is a must have. Along with all the standard features that the previous fitbits come with, the Charge HR goes one better than these by incorporating a continuous heart rate monitor. This useful tool monitors your pulse using an optical sensor on the back of the wristband.

This includes call notifications, current heart rate, time/date, steps and calories burned to name a few. For a day to day activity tracker that includes a heart rate monitor you can’t really get better than the Charge HR for the price.
