Smart wearables devices are on the rise these days, and we can think about numerous brands when it comes to buying a fitness band and activity tracker to keep a check on our health. Most of the fitness trackers these days come with a built-in heart rate monitor and sleep tracking features. Not just that, some of them can also be worn during a swim and show how many calories you have burnt throughout the day. On the occasion of International Yoga Day 2018, we walk you through some of the affordable fitness bands at different price brackets under Rs 10000. Here is the list:
Affordable fitness bands under Rs 10000
Soulful Sonic V08 (Rs 9999)
This one happens to be one of the most unique fitness bands we have seen so far. Activity tracking aside, Soulfit’s Sonic V08 also doubles as an earpiece to make / receive calls over Bluetooth. Once paired with your handset via an app, you can configure and choose to receive notifications and alerts etc. It has a heart rate monitor to keep track of your health. However, it lacks waterproofing capabilities because of its two-in-one nature. If you are willing to splurge on a fitness tracker that costs Rs 9999 and lets users make phone calls, Soulfit Sonic V08 is the option to consider.
