    Best under £30 fitness tracker 12th Apr 17 at 4:05 PM
    Just want something reliable which tracks steps, mileage and displays time. I bought a Letscom one and it only recorded about 40% of the steps I do. I always do 12-16k steps on workdays and yesterday it recorded 5.8k

    Also needs to support iPhone and easy to charge

    Sorry, can't answer the question as asked. How do you know you do 12-16k steps? Why not continue using whatever gave that figure?

    For what it's worth, I'd probably save more money and get a better one.

    I work in the fitness industry so have seen/used many on the market and unfortunately, you seem to get what you pay for - anything less than around £60 is usually pretty unreliable in my experience.

    I like Polar products - they are typically the most accurate and have a great build quality. Garmin aren't bad but I don't find them as user friendly as the Polar products.

    Doesn't meet the under £30 - it's £40 but have you considered the Withings Go?

    I used my mates polar and it was horrible to use. He used my Garmin and got on with it great.

    I quite liked my Misfit Flash

    Well Below 30? well you can get but it won't have quality which is quite necessary if i were you I would prefer to buy a product which actually is cost-effiecient and also quality at the best!
    I'm using ""Misfit" and it is been great cost me around $80 and it sure to not compromise with quality and it has been 7 months since I've been using and it never gave me issues.
