When it comes to a wearable device, you don't want something that's only going to do one thing. If you're going to invest in and wear a fitness band, then shouldn't it also tell you the time? The good news is that there are plenty of fitness trackers that do just that. From Fitbit, Garmin, and others, our savvy selection of the best fitness trackers out there with time displays makes it easy to keep up with both your fitness statistics and the time of day.

If you want our recommendation

All of these fitness trackers let you view the time as well as your fitness stats. Given that Fitbit has been on top of the fitness band game for forever and a day, the Fitbit Inspire HR (opens in new tab) has become a popular choice and is a good mid-range option. Though not quite as advanced as the Charge models, the Inspire HR features the sensors to do what it needs to do at a much lower price than Fitbit's more advanced trackers.

If you're looking something a little more advanced, the Fitbit Charge 4 (opens in new tab) comes top of our list as our overall Staff Pick. It does the same things that the Inspire HR does, monitoring your heart rate, tracking activity and sleep, and offering specialized activity tracking modes. Still, it has a bigger display, which better presents the time, as well as up to seven days of battery life, as opposed to the Inspire's five days.

If having to have a brand name on your wrist doesn't bother you, then you can save money with the excellent Xiaomi Mi Band 4 (opens in new tab). It's an affordable option that offers the same useful features as more expensive models, including heart rate monitoring functionality, and it gets a gorgeous AMOLED color display.
