Best fitness smartwatch

Tipping the scales

eufy by Anker Smart Scale P1 with Bluetooth

You can manually enter your weight into Google Fit, but this scale can do it for you. It also calculates more than weight. It can estimate your body fat and water percentages, as well as your muscle mass and other measurements. Since getting all that data is as easy as stepping on the scale, you get a more accurate picture of your health over time.

Not only is the Galaxy Watch Active 2 more affordable than ever, but it's also an excellent fitness smartwatch for Android owners. If you're not a fan of Wear OS, this is a great alternative.

RayTour Tape Measure for Body Measuring

If you're aiming to shed some inches around your waist, the best way to track that is with a tape measure. This one from RayTour is inexpensive, but it's retractable, so you get the perfect measurement without any extra clutter. While's no specific place in Google Fit to enter waist measurements, you can easily keep a journal entry with your progress over time.

Bring your phone

Tribe Running Phone Holder Armband

Perhaps you're not interested in buying a smartwatch. An armband is the best way to keep your phone in place during a workout. This one features a reflective strip, so you remain visible in the dark. It will fit all the latest phones with screens that are between 4 and 7 inches. Finally, there's a small pocket for your keys, debit card, or other small accessories.

Play some tunes

Jabra Elite 85t True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

If you're like most athletes, you need some tunes to keep you moving. Jabra's Elite 85t earbuds will do just that. These are wireless earbuds, so you don't have a cord running down your back. Pop them back in their charging case at the end of your workout, so the earbuds themselves should always have juice. The IPX4 rating means they can withstand some water splashes and dust, but proceed with caution.

Keep it charged

AINOPE Fast Car Charger, 36W Dual Port Quick Charge

While this Google Fit accessory isn't so much for your workout, it is for immediately before and after. You won't be doing much fitness tracking if your watch is dead. Worse yet, you won't be able to listen to music with dead Bluetooth headphones. You can charge up your gadgets before and after a long workout with this charger from AINOPE. You even get dual charging ports for double the power.

Compact power

Anker PowerCore 5000 Portable Charger

Again, dead electronics are of no use to you. But, if you're planning to run a mega marathon, this portable battery is perfect for bringing along with you. It's compact, so it can easily fit inside your pocket or running belt. While it may not offer the fastest charging speeds out there, it'll be more than enough to keep you and your gadgets going throughout the run.

Best Google Fit accessories: Time to get fit

Tracking key aspects of your health and fitness doesn't have to be difficult. You can make this task much easier with the right tools. Between a fitness smartwatch, a smart scale, and a good old-fashioned tape measure, you should be well on your way to monitoring your progress with Google Fit. If you're a beginner and a smartwatch is too big of a leap, you might want to start with a fitness tracker instead.

The Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 is still one of our favorite Wear OS watches out there with GPS, NFC payments, heart-rate monitoring, and multi-day battery life. If the battery dies during a workout or as soon as you arrive at the gym, you can count on the ANKER PowerCore 5000 Portable Charger to bring it back to life in no time. No matter what your workout routine looks like, the TicWatch Pro 3 is one of the best Wear OS watches with Google Fit.

If you're leaning toward a fitness tracker and want to save some serious bucks, you should consider the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 Smart Wristband. It's light, compact, and affordable. Most importantly, it offers the health and fitness tracking features for a great tracking experience, including 30 sport modes, activity/sleep tracking, heart-rate monitoring, blood oxygen monitoring, and more. This is an ideal option for beginners who want to learn how to swim before jumping into the deep end.

It's worth noting that these are just a few of the best Google Fit accessories you can buy that make it a breeze to track your progress. Google Fit is one of the most popular fitness apps out there, and with the right accessories to go with it, you'll be able to track every detail that matters to you.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
