The most affordable of the lot, the Actxa Spur is the training wheels’ equivalent of a fitness band. Actxa first produced the Stride as a free step counter for the Health Promotion Board and the Spur is its jazzed-up, upgraded version. It supports heart rate monitoring through six heart zones: Relax, Warm Up, Fat Burn, Cardio, Intense and Max, and shows you the duration spent in each zone in a handy coloured chart on the app. While you can’t swim with it, it’s able to withstand sweat and lasts up to 10 days in between charges.
The verdict An entry-level, easy-to-use activity tracker for basic day-to-day tracking. Best for the tech-adverse lot.
