The $99 Fitbit Flex is among our favorite wrist-based health monitors. Unlike the similar Jawbone Up, the Flex works with Android and iOS, and the Bluetooth compatibility means you don't need to manually dock it for data transfers. But if you can spend a bit more, step up to the newer Fitbit Force, which adds a full OLED screen and doubles as a watch.

The good: The Fitbit Flex is a simple way to track steps, sleep, and calories. The Flex's strap design makes it light and comfortable to wear. It also offers handy Bluetooth syncing, and Fitbit’s platform gives plenty ways to analyze your stats.
The bad: Clasping the Fitbit Flex’s strap shut is tricky. Direct syncing is only available with the iPhone, the Samsung GS3, and the Galaxy Note handsets.
The bottom line: A long list of features and a comfortable fit make Fitbit’s new Flex the best fitness tracker you can buy.
