Do you know that the fitness tracker given out by Singapore’s Health Promotion Board for their National Steps Challenge Season 5 is developed by a home-grown, Singapore company, AXTRO?
AXTRO Fit 2 is developed in collaboration with Health Promotion Board and eligible participants started collecting their free trackers from various events and collection points starting from 27th September 2019.
My son Asher and I exercise regularly and both of us are wearers of fitness trackers. Currently, I switch between a Xiaomi Mi Band 4 and a Fitbit Versa depending on the occasion while Asher recently switched up from a Fitbit Ace to a Fitbit Inspire HR.
Similar to the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 and the Fitbit Inspire HR, the AXTRO Fit 2 comes with a heart rate tracker, longer battery life than a smartwatch and with a basic colour screen. The design is really functional and focused on it’s purpose as a fitness device rather than fancy elements. The litmus test is that it should be durable, easy-to-use, weather resistant and do not need to be charged frequently.
If you are not particular about brand, the AXTRO Fit 2 delivers decent performance compared to its pricier competitors at just S$19 a set. It is without a doubt, value-for-money. The set comes together with a easy-to-use magnetic clip-on charger whereby you can charge your device directly by snapping it on.
If you are interested in something more elegant and slim, you can check out these activity trackers for people with small wrists.
