Our 10 Top Fitness Tracker Watches for Women

Here are our picks for the 10 top fitness tracker watches for women to help find the best one for you or that special woman in your life.

Which is the best watch for fitness tracking for women?

Women ask themselves this as they try to find out what the best fitness tracker watch for women is when they look for one for themselves or that particular woman they hold dear.

Unfortunately, getting the answer to that is easier said than done.

That’s because a lot goes into women’s fitness.

Most want to lose weight, but some also want help with upgrading their exercise routine, working out more, monitoring their health and keeping a healthy weight.

There are fitness tracker watches designed to achieve specific fitness goals, but narrowing the options down can be difficult since not all women have the same experience level.

So we took the guesswork out of the equation by listing what we found as the 10 best fitness tracker watches for women right here. We’re sure among these is the one with the features that will let you or your special someone crush your fitness goals.

Luxe with Special Edition Gorjana Bracelet

Fitness tracker watches usually feature silicone wristbands. That’s because such wristbands are durable, water resistant and easy to clean. But they aren’t exactly stylish. Not Fitbit’s Luxe.

This limited edition fitness tracker watch for women comes with a bracelet as its wristband, made by famed American jewelry retailer Gorjana, making it quite chic. But if you aren’t into that kind of look, you can easily swap it out for the pink silicone wristband the fitness tracker watch also comes with. If you don’t like that either, there are other options you can choose from.

To help you achieve your fitness goals, the Luxe can count the steps you’d take, track the miles you’d cover, log how many exercise sessions you’d do per week and more.

Battery life: Up to 5 days

Water resistance: 50 meters

GPS: Yes, connected to your smartphone

Steel HR Hybrid Smartwatch

Since it looks just like a regular watch, you can say that the Steel HR Hybrid Smartwatch by French consumer electronics company Withings is the exact opposite of Fitbit’s Luxe. That makes it perfect for fitness enthusiasts who want a fitness tracker watch that’s a bit more low-key. But it’s no slouch when it comes to helping achieve your fitness goals. It has several features made specifically to let you do just that:

  • Tracks your activities, like the steps you’d take and distance covered
  • Measures your heart rate
  • Gives you a “sleep score”
  • Health Mate app that lets you dig deeper into your fitness stats

Battery life: Up to 25 days

Water resistance: 50 meters

10 Inspiring Self-Care Quotes for Moms and What They Mean

Here are our 10 top quotes about self-care for moms and the meaning behind each to inspire mothers the world over.

There are those who would say December is the time of year moms are busiest. Aside from work and taking care of their families, they need to find the time and energy to prepare to celebrate the holidays. That means decorating their houses, making the food and getting everyone ready for the relatives to arrive.

It’s lovely—no matter how tiring it is—especially when you see the joy on your loved ones’ faces as they enjoy everything you’ve done for them. But it can be really draining. Some even forget they need to keep practicing self-care no matter how busy they get.

Self-care is when you take time to do things that benefit you emotionally, physically and mentally. Those include getting enough sleep, eating healthy and exercising.

We know you have responsibilities as a mother, but that’s no excuse not to take care of yourself. So you always remember, here are our 10 picks for truly inspirational motherhood self-care quotes and their meanings.

“Self-care has become a new priority – the revelation that it’s perfectly permissible to listen to your body and do what it needs.” — Frances Ryan

Frances Ryan is a British journalist, author and activist for people with disabilities. In 2021, the charitable organization Shaw Trust named her one of the UK’s 10 most influential disabilities activists. Global Citizen, an advocacy organization dedicated to ending “extreme poverty” by 2030, called her “a prominent voice for people with disabilities in the media.”

Frances tells women not to be ashamed to tend to their needs. Nothing is more important than making sure their well-being is taken care of. Who better to do so than themselves?

“Self-care is never a selfish act—it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others.” – Parker J. Palmer

Parker J. Palmer is a prolific American author, educator and activist focused on issues in education, community, leadership, spirituality and social change. He has published 10 books and many essays and poems. He’s also the founder and senior partner emeritus of the Center for Courage and Renewal.

Some women think taking care of themselves is selfish. They believe doing so makes them appear as if they’re more important than others. Parker debunks this. He rightfully says they themselves are the best gift they can give to others, so they must take care of themselves.

“Learning to love yourself is like learning to walk–essential, life-changing, and the only way to stand tall.” — Vironika Tugaleva

Also known as Vironika Wilde, Vironika Tugaleva is an Ukranian poet, spoken word artist, life coach, visual artist and vocalist. She is also the author of the award-winning book The Love Mindset and The Art of Talking to Yourself.

Instead of being ashamed to take care of themselves. Vironika tells women to be proud. Not only is it necessary, it can even change their lives for the better. Once they learn how to take care of themselves, their quality of life will surely improve.

“You are beautiful and worthy of good things, and if you don’t believe that, nobody will.” — Rachel Hollis

Rachel Hollis is an American author, blogger and motivational speaker. She has written 3 self-help books, including Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing.

Some women are so ashamed to take care of themselves they think they don’t deserve any kind of help. Rachel assures them they are. In order for others to realize this, they need to show them by taking care of themselves. Only then will others realize they’re worthy.

“Be kinder to yourself. And then let your kindness flood the world.” — Pema Chödrön

Pema Chödrön is an American Tibetan Buddhist, an ordained nun and the principal teacher at the Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia. She has written several dozen audiobooks and books, including How to Meditate: A Practical Guide to Making Friends with Your Mind and Living Beautifully: With Uncertainty and Change.

As Pema so succinctly put it, true kindness comes from within. It can only manifest if we take good care of ourselves. Only then can we be kind to others.

“You aren’t doing “nothing” when you choose to put your wellbeing first. In fact, this is the key to having everything.” — Brittany Burgunder

Brittany Burgunder is a certified professional life coach (CPC), specializing in eating disorders (ex: anorexia and bulimia). She is also a best-selling author. She wrote Safety in Numbers: My Battle with Eating Disorders, her first book published in 2016 that chronicles her struggles with having had an eating disorder and recovering from it. Her book is proudly included in the Gurze Salucore Eating Disorders Resource Catalog, the most widely used resource in the eating disorder field since the 80s.

As Brittney’s life experiences prove, women need to safeguard their health. The only way to protect it is by taking care of it.

“You are worth the quiet moment. You are worth the deeper breaths and you are worth the time it takes to slow down, be still, and rest.” – Morgan Harper Nichols

Morgan Harper Nichols is an American Christian musician, songwriter, mixed-media artist and writer. Although she’s autistic, she has positively influenced people all over the world with her art.

Living in such a fast-paced world, many think we need to keep up to do well or not be left out. Morgan makes us realize we don’t have to. There are things in this world that can only be appreciated by taking a break from time to time. Don’t get so caught up with the hustle and bustle that you can no longer experience the simple joys of life.

“There is enough time for self-care. There is not enough time to make up for the life you’ll miss by not filling yourself up.” — Jennifer Williamson

Jennifer Williamson is an accomplished political figure. She is an American attorney and a former Oregon state representative. She served as Majority Leader from 2015 to 2019.

Despite working in such a demanding field, Jennifer makes it a point to practice self-care. As she pointed out, all women can do it if they want to. They’ll never be able to make up for all the times they didn’t otherwise.

“In my own deepening understanding of myself, I find my capacity to serve others is deepened as well. The better I am at self-care, the more genuinely nurturing of others I am able to be.” — Mary Anne Radmacher

Mary Anne Radmacher is an artist and a writer. She has been writing since she was a child. She conducts workshops on living a “full, creative, balanced life.” She teaches internet writing seminars and works with individual clients.

Since she educates people, Mary Anne understands she needs to be nurturing to make her students’ minds and hearts open up to her. She has found that she needs to take good care of herself to do so. Women will become better at taking care of others by doing the same.

“Taking care of myself doesn’t mean ‘me first.’ It means ‘me, too.’” – LR Knost

LR Knost is an award-winning author of several books on “gentle parenting,” including Two Thousand Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting Through the Ages and Stages and The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline. She is the founder and director of Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources, a children’s rights advocacy and family consulting group. She is also the editor-in-chief of Holistic Parenting Magazine.

Care shouldn’t just be given to others. Like LR said, women should also include themselves. That’s the only way everyone can be taken care of.
