If you’re in the market for a fitness tracking wearable, it’s not easy to determine which one is best. Especially with the wide variety of new fitness wearables, smart watches, pedometers and trackers available to consumers. The best approach is choosing a tracker that suits you and your goals. That’s where the Basis Peak Watch comes in.

Does the Watch Fit The Goal?

Since the BodyBugg and BodyMedia devices (as seen on the Biggest Loser), there’s been almost no attempt for the fitness tracking niche to develop a wearable that tracks calories lost based off of body heat. Heart rate and pedometers work, but are still simply a formula and ultimately a “guestimate.”  Since a calorie is a measure of heat and energy, a heat sensor is the most accurate and real-time measure for tracking calories burned.

This was ultimately the motivation for picking the Basis Peak Watch first for a RundleFit Review. Workout Anywhere is a highly effective and efficient training program for delivering quick, all-level, fat burning workouts with a minimal time equipment. Our success with members rivals even the most famous of fitness programs, thanks to our innovative approach to metabolic circuits and HIIT training.

The Major Fitness Tracker / Wearable Dilemma

The problem with most fitness trackers is, they’re not accurately designed for tracking the process of burning body fat calories. Ideal fat loss is the combination of great nutrition and quick, high intensity workouts (think CrossFit, Insanity and Workout Anywhere). Most fitness trackers and smart watches are a super pedometer giving calorie readouts, but these calories can be both glycogen, fat, and muscle stores. For ideal physique transforming results, the goal should be to promote lean muscle mass, while reducing body fat. Think sprinters over marathon runners and no, most will not get big and bulky from HIIT workouts.

Since most pedometers generally don’t give our quick fat burning workouts proper credit (due to a focus of tracking steps and mileage, but not calories burned) and our HIIT, or high intensity interval training workouts can performed in the confines of a living room or even a hotel room, we generally give off a low reading with some trackers.

However, the results from our team member’s success stories speaks volumes. For this reason, this review and a couple more fitness tracker/ smart-watch reviews will focus on only those that have the heat sensor (Peak Basis Watch is the only one) and a heart rate monitor.
