As fit­ness gad­gets and smart­watches merge, it is easy to over­look the ad­van­tages of straight­for­ward, fo­cused de­vice. This sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Vivofit ac­tiv­ity and sleep tracker adds au­di­ble alerts, im­proved smart­phone sync­ing, and a timer for more ac­cu­rately track­ing your calo­rie burn dur­ing ex­er­cise. It’s wa­ter­proof to 50m and has a bat­tery that lasts a year so you rarely need to take it off. An im­proved clasp en­sures it won’t dis­lodge eas­ily. A range of cov­ers de­signed by Jonathan Adler ($45 for three-pack) gives fash­ion­able choices while the abil­ity to pair it with a heart-rate mon­i­tor chest strap adds func­tion­al­ity.
