LifeTrak Brite R450
If you’ve ever used a gym treadmill, you know LifeTrak. They’re the makers of the steel heart rate handles you find in gyms everywhere, so it makes sense that heart rate measurement is at the core of all its watches. The Bright R450 has a classic sports watch aesthetic and tracks steps, sleep, and, uniquely, how much sunlight you get, encouraging you to get outside more often. Its athletic functions are limited to chronograph, and heart rate measurement is not continuous, which could be a drawback for some. But for those smartphone holdouts, the watch shows everything on screen so you don’t need an app to use it.
