Wearables are equipped with technology that's worn on your person, hence the name. These smart electronic devices can be incorporated into clothing or worn on the body as accessories like smartwatches and fitness wristbands/ fitness trackers. Here are five of the best wearables on the market today: 


The all-new Galaxy Watch Active2 comes with a bigger customizable touch screen and touch bezel, and gives you precise health insights while keeping you fully connected. It tracks walking, running, cycling, rowing, swimming and more, while also featuring elliptical training mode, dynamic workout mode and a running and breathing coach function. $300 samsung.com


The Apple Watch Series 5 is the heavy weight champ in smartwatches. It improves on its predecessors with an always-on display, a new sleep software suite, and an impressive ECG monitor. $400-$750+ apple.com


The ultra-lightweight COROS Apex PRO Premium Multisport GPS Watch offers 40 hours of full GPS battery life, which is 14% more than its "little brother", the original COROS APEX. It comes with an enabled touch screen, it’s rated waterproof up to 100m of water, and includes a barometer, altimeter, compass and offers 24/7 blood oxygen monitoring with altitude acclimatization assistance. $500 coros.com


The durable and lightweight Fitbit Charge 3 isn't a drastic change over its predecessor, but the new small tweaks make it one of the best everyday fitness trackers you can buy. It’s equipped with a bigger display and offers 7 days of battery life. It features All-Day Activity Tracking and Calorie Burn, 24/7 Heart Rate Monitoring, Automatic Exercise Recognition for all types of sports and Fitbit Pay, so you can grab that low-cal beer at your local bar after your run. $150 fitbit.com


The COROS SafeSound Urban Helmet is a cyclist's must-have because it has a built in EOSS Sound Platform, which streams audio and lets you take phone calls on the go. It's compatible with map applications too, offering turn-by-turn directions while streaming your audio. Its integrated tail lights on the back make you more visible than ever, and it rounds it out with an SOS Emergency Alert System that detects any impact, sending an exact mapping of your location to your COROS App emergency contacts while the LED tail light flashes S.O.S in Morse code for anyone nearby. $200 coros.com
