Exercise is like paying taxes or office holiday parties: awful, but you gotta do it. Here are 13 wearable fitness trackers that will help you achieve your dreams of climbing up a flight of stairs without losing your breath.

1. Garmin vívosmart HR+

Not only does this bad boy come in some swanky colors other than black, but it tracks more than just steps, too. You can swim, bike, or watch a stressful movie with this thing, and it’ll accurately track your heart rate for all of it.

Garmin vívosmart HR+ Regular Fit Activity Tracker, available at Amazon, $129.92

2. Wesoo K1 Fitness Watch

For not only the health but the budget-conscious. The Wesoo isn’t packed with features, but it’ll track your steps and will yell at you if you sit still for too long. Listen, some people like that.

Wesoo K1 Fitness Watch Activity Tracker Smart Band with Sleep Monitor, available at Amazon, $29.99

3. Fitbit Charge 2

Fitbit’s the big name in fitness trackers, and for good reason: its sleek look makes it one of the more fashionable trackers out there (you can swap out the band, too), and it even connects to your smartphone so you won’t be distracted from your workout when your buddy texts you about that one good SNL sketch from the other night.

4. Misfit Ray

The Ray is, in a word, gorgeous. It looks like something a rich, virtuous Star Wars character would wear. Its minimalist design and plethora of features via its smartphone app will make you want to hit the gym, if you can believe it.

Misfit Ray Fitness + Sleep Tracker, available at Amazon, $38.99

5. Moov Now

Versatile and weird-looking (in a very cool way), the Moov Now can be worn on your wrist or your ankle. If you want to do some boxing, you can even wear two of ‘em and it tracks that, too.

Moov Now 3D Fitness Tracker & Real Time Audio Coach, available at Amazon, $59.85

6. Apple Watch Series 3

Of course, the Apple Watch is for more than just fitness, but if you want to go all-out on features and don’t mind the price tag, you’ve got a great workout tracker right here. The Apple Watch tracks steps, flights of stairs, swimming, you name it. You can talk to it, too.

7. Moov HR

For the super-serious fitness junkies out there, this thing attaches to your torso and measures everything from your heart rate to how many calories you burn. It connects to most smartphone fitness apps and delivers real-time data and goals. It’s like wearing your own personal trainer!

8. Fitbit Alta HR

All the features you’ve come to expect from Fitbit, packed into a smaller, slimmer body. Cute.

9. Fitbit Ionic

The Ionic stores over 300 songs on top of doing everything else you’d expect from a top-of-the-line smartwatch. That means you can leave your phone at home and achieve total enlightened focus, like some kind of ripped Buddhist monk.

Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch, available at Amazon, $269.95

10. Garmin vívosmart 3

Classic design, no-frills, and even tells you what your “fitness age” is. That sounds horrifying and is something I would frankly never want to know, but then again I consider walking anything more than 3 blocks a grueling adventure.

11. Motiv Ring

This thing is just nuts. All the perks of a fitness tracker stuffed into a freaking RING. Up your game, all you chunky silicon watches.

Motiv Ring Fitness, Heart Rate, and Sleep Tracker, available at Motiv, $199

12. Samsung Gear Fit2

Yes, even Samsung has a fitness smartwatch. It’s got a nice big screen, because this is Samsung we’re talking about.

13. Polar A370

Designed to be worn every minute of every day, so that you may become an ultra-efficient cyborg with tremendous calves.
