I’ve been tracking my daily steps with a Fitbit Charge for about half a year now – Sometimes accidentally leaving it at home when I anticipate a day with little activity.

While I don’t think that the black band negatively affects my outfit, it doesn’t add much style to it either. After doing a quick online search on stylish fitness trackers, I was surprised by the wide range of fashionable options available.

In my opinion, the following are a few of the most stylish devices for men and women currently available.

Stylish Health Trackers for Men

1. The Metropolitan+

This activity tracker just recently hit the market in October. It has the standard features that you would expect from an activity tracker, but it has a huge advantage to its competition: You don’t have to charge it!

2. Wellograph Wellness Watch

This elegant watch is available in a silver satin body, black chrome or white pearl set against a genuine leather or black nato strap. It can monitor your exercise, heart rate, sleep, and take a live pulse reading.

Stylish Health Trackers for Women

1. Bellabeat Leaf

Not a watch person? Then the Bellabeat Leaf might be the best option, as you can wear it as a necklace, bracelet, or simply clip to any clothing item. This simple yet stylish health tracker helps you monitor your activity, sleep quality, stress levels, and apparently understands your menstrual cycle.  It’s currently available for pre-order and expected to begin shipping in late January 2015.

2. Mira Fitness Bracelet

The setting of the Mira bracelet is available in five colors, including gold and rosé, and can easily be interchanged. The opal is removable and can be used as a clip similar to the Bellabeat when you work out or don’t want to wear a bracelet.

Looking at some of these options, I wonder if I should update my Fitbit Charge?
