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 as well. These six are ones to consider that work anywhere you're breaking a workout sweat, including your favorite gym.

Just announced in April 2021, the new Venu 2 from Garmin can calculate an estimation of your fitness age, by taking into account your age, resting heart rate and body fat percentage (taken from a smart scale) or BMI number. From there, you'll get advice on how to improve your fitness and lower that statistic. There's also something called Body Battery Energy Monitoring, which tracks your body's energy levels throughout the day in a bid to help you find the best times for activity and rest. This could be useful to work out when best to go to the gym, and when you should stay home.

This data is presented on a circular AMOLED touchscreen display, inside a 45mm case and you can select various colors including blue, black, pale gold, rose gold, silver and slate, with a strap to match.
