The Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker is a great way to get that New Year’s resolution to adopt healthier habits back on track. The Fitbit can provide just the nudge many need to make better choices throughout the day, whether that means taking the stairs to hit your step goal for the day, or opting for the iced tea instead of the milkshake because you know you’ll be logging what you ate later on (logging feature is optional). The Fitbit One is very small, yet feature-rich. Not only can it track your steps, calories burned and progress toward goals you can set yourself, it can also track the quality of your sleep and wake you with a gentle, silent vibration against your wrist each morning at the time you choose. Currently (as of 4/7/16) rated 4.5/5 stars across over 11,000 reviews and priced at $79.87.
