Fitness tracking on the cheap
The $59.95 Fitbit Zip smart pedometer is affordable, easy to use, and tracks the steps you take plus calories consumed. Though its clip-style design makes it easier to misplace than wristband gadgets, the Zip offers access to Fitbit's deep data-analysis tools. The device also syncs over Bluetooth to iPhones and Samsung Galaxy handsets.
