With cardio-focused trackers in abundance, the team behind Gymwatch is looking to muscle in on the burgeoning wearables market with a sensor that measures strength and motion, meaning it could prove more useful for those looking to gain weight rather than lose it.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the Samsung Gear Fit, a workout tracker with some smartwatch features

Flyfit is an ankle-band fitness tracker

Fitness trackers are all the rage at the moment and there are plenty of options from which to choose. The vast majority of trackers strap to your wrist, but would there be any benefit to strapping a one to your ankle instead?
