Lumo Lift Posture & Activity Tracker 
The Lumo Lift Posture & Activity Tracker is leading the demand for fitness wearables with its posture-correcting coach, according to Argus report. It's not a wrist-worn device, but a small sensor you clip to your shirt.
The tracker uses biomechanics monitoring sensors to track angle displacement and recognize when you start to slouch. When you do, the device gently vibrates to remind you to straighten up. The idea is those reminders will improve posture over time and decrease the risk of back pain.
In addition to its posture coach, the Lumo Lift records steps taken, distance traveled, and calories burned. You can access all of this health data through a compatible app for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.
The Lumo Lift retails for $79.99.

A start
The Apple fitness apps are complex and not intuitive the way most of their products are. There is room for a lot of data but im not sure much of it is useful. But it is a start.

Garmin Vivoactive
I would add the Garmin Vivoactive to this list which does everthing that the other Garmin devices do and adds GPS capabilites for running cycling walking etc etc.  It also has a battery life of up to 3 weeks.   Works well with my Android phone to synch activities and load apps
