Fitbit Force and Flex

Who makes it: Fitbit

What it costs: $130 (Force), $100 (Flex)

Why we like it: The fitness-band field has exploded with Nike, Jawbone and a host of others jostling for wrist-share. Our favorite for the moment is Fitbit, which provides the best combination of functionality (tracking steps and monitoring sleep) and technology (constant iPhone connection via low-power Bluetooth). The Flex is smaller and waterproof; the larger Force can't be worn in the shower, but includes a tiny screen so you can monitor your stats without having to pull out your phone. It tells time, too.
