Indoor workouts at gyms have been something many of us have avoided for more than a year. But these are starting to open back up — a way to take our fitness routine out of a bedroom, hallway, or the street. A great fitness tracker can help people stick to a new routine and amp up their workouts. These six are ones to consider that work anywhere you're breaking a workout sweat, including your favorite gym.

Apple Watch 8 Series offers 18 hours of battery life

The Apple Watch is now in Series 8 and better than ever. The new bigger, and better design boasts a blood oxygen sensor, an app, a heart sensor, and automatic workout detection. If you forget to start the watch but start a class, you'll get a little haptic buzz on your wrist to start recording it. This smartwatch also has built-in cellular, so you can call, text, and stream even if you don't have your phone. (Although there is an extra monthly fee for this feature.) Plus, the Apple Watch 8 is swimproof, ideal if you're lucky to belong to a gym with a pool. It has a new running form analysis feature and a new swimming stroke detection feature, which will be helpful. However, the newest part of the new Apple Watch 8 has a faster dual-core processor for improved performance. This makes the watch faster and more responsive, especially when working out, and it tracks your vitals in real time.
