Step counters have been available in many forms for years, but only now with a new generation of accelerometers have they been as accurate and useful.
As a cheaper alternative to the Fitbit Ultra, Fitbit have announced the new Fitbit Zip at £50
You can see your progress on the device by tapping to scroll through the three stats available or at home it will sync through a small USB dongle. It also works with Bluetooth to sync with your smartphone.
You can then upload your data to your Fitbit Account to track goals, add activities and compete with friends.
The Fitbit Zip is available in 5 different colours with a silicon cover to match, it’s splash proof but not submersible so it can handle sweat and splashes only. It runs on a small watch battery that should last around 6 months.
