Available in several different colors and models, the device’s technology tracks user’s steps, distance traveled, hours slept and calories burned, making it easier for travelers to determine how far they walked while sightseeing, log the amount of calories consumed and monitor the quality of their jet-lagged slumber.


With Fitbit’s ability to sync to computers and smartphones, users can easily track their progress, exercise and sleep patterns through graphs and charts even while far from home.


Wristbands range from $59.95 to $99.95, depending on the model. Options include the Fitbit Zip, capable of tracking steps, distance and calories burned; and the Fitbit One and Fitbit Flex, with all of the Zip features plus the ability to track floors climbed, monitor sleep quality and wake users with a vibrating alarm. Fitbit Flex also allows users to set personal goals.
