Runtastic Orbit 630 wideThere are plenty of fitness trackers in the market at the moment from manufacturers such as Fitbit, Jawbone, and Samsung, but if you’re looking for another option that you add to your shopping list, perhaps Runtastic’s Orbit could be worth taking a look at. For those unfamiliar with Runtastic, they are a company who has made apps designed for fitness.

These apps includes running apps that can track your distance, pace, and etc., and they have also dabbled in wearables such as GPS watches, armbands, heart rate monitors, and so on. However if you wanted something sleeker and more compact, the Orbit might just do the trick for you.

The Orbit will allow the wearer to track their steps, the amount of calories they’ve burnt, sleep patterns, and is also waterproof up to 300 feet, meaning that if you wanted to count the calories you burnt while diving, the Orbit will be able to do that for you. The Orbit will also come with features that nudges you into activity, like vibrating in the morning and vibrating when it detects you have been inactive for too long.

According to Runtastic, the Orbit will feature a battery that will last seven days on a single charge and will also be accompanied by the Runtastic Me app. The app allows users to set their goals and the app will help provide recommendations. Priced at $119, the Runtastic Orbit fitness band is available for purchase, so if you’d like to learn more or get your hands on one, head on over to their website for the details.
