You don't need to spend a small fortune on a fitness tracker to get the job done. Some of the most efficient wearable devices on the market cost around $30, not the hundreds of dollars the industry leaders charge for their products.

Cheap, yet powerful

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Fitness Tracker

The Mi Band 3 by Xiaomi packs a bunch for about 1/9th the price you'd pay for the most expensive Fitbit tracker. Offering a real-time display, the band shows exercise duration, mileage, heart rate, and more. Best of all, it's waterproof up to 50 meters. It also features an all-day health management system that includes a pedometer, sleep tracker, and a sedentary reminder. Weighing just 20g, the Mi Band 3 measures 17.9x46.9x12mm with a 0.78-inch black and white OLED panel.
