How To Choose Fitness Tracker for Small Wrist

Might not technical as it sounds, but you should always consider the following aspects or features while choosing the right fitness tracker for your wrist.

Wrist Size

Of course, it going to be the deciding factor, since the people with comparatively smaller wrists, should always consider the size first. Now ideally, knowing your wrist size would be the key factor here since you don’t have your tracker hanging around while you’re working out or running.

Now generally, under 6 or 6-inch wrist is considered small, and goes well with the diameter cases of 34 – 38mm. 7-inch to 7.5-inch is considered average, and suits perfectly with 38 – 42mm diameter cases. And, above 7.5-inch or 8-inch wrist size is considered big and suits with 44 – 46mm diameter cases or more.

Although this is just for the people who are conscious about their wrists and wants a tracker which fits their wrist perfectly. There’s no universal rule that they should only go with the smartwatches or trackers which fall under these criteria. You can choose whatever you like, but not at the cost of your comfortableness.

How to measure your wrist size

If you don’t know about wrist size, you can find out by following these 3 easy steps.

  1. Rotate your forearm outward until your palm is facing up and open your hand. This is when your wrist is the largest.
  2. Place the end of the measuring tape in the middle of your wrist width.
  3. Wrap the measuring tape around your wrist and read the measurement.

Display Size

Although fitness trackers are meant to have a smaller or minimalistic display as compared to smartwatches. That said, even if you have to choose the watch, then going with a 40mm or smaller watch case would be the ideal move here since you don’t want your wrist weighing down.

Strap Size

Since you are looking for a tracker for smaller wrists, so make sure to check the maximum and minimum length of the straps. Plus go with the one which has an adjustable strap, as you won’t find any difficulty in adjusting it through those holes no matter how small the wrist is. Remember, you might be wearing it to sleep as well, so make sure it fits perfectly.


It won’t be a problem if you’re going with regular fitness trackers, since they tend to have a very smaller display, and no proper screen, which makes them lightweight. But if you do have to go with smartwatches as well, then try going with the one which doesn’t put the burden on your wrist.

Other features

After all, you’re going for the fitness tracker, which means you’d want to track your fitness activities. Having heart rate and sleep tracking is very important these days, as you can have insights into your health. Sport modes, daily activity tracking, built-in GPS, and exercise recognition are some of the important features you’d need in tracking your fitness or outdoor activities.

Along with this, getting smart notifications, listening to music, downloading third-party apps, and easy wireless syncing of fitness stats, and water resistance to some extent should be there as well.


Depends on what kind of fitness tracker you choose, and since there’s a lot of variety in the wearable market these days, you can find fit for under 200 bucks. This again depends on the features and the type of tracker you’re looking for.

Battery life

If the company claims that the tracker can last for 5-7 days then it might go on for a couple of days with moderate usage or more depending upon the user, and you should go for it.


Can people with tiny wrists wear a fitness tracker?

Yes, they can. Fitness trackers come in various shapes and sizes, which are meant for wrists of every kind.

Which Fitbit is perfect for small wrists?

Fitbit Flex 2 and Fitbit Inspire 2 come with no display or very minimalistic display respectively, which makes them good for people with small wrists.

Is there any difference between fitness trackers and smartwatches?

Well, it’s debatable since there is a lot of overlapping features between these two. But generally, the smartwatch is considered the accessory of the phone, while the fitness tracker keeps track of your fitness activities.

Has Fitbit Released any smartwatches?

They have released some fitness smartwatches such as Fitbit Sense, and Fitbit Versa.

What are the best fitness trackers for small wrists?

Fitbit Flex 2, Fitbit Inspire 2, HUAWEI Band 6, Amazfit band 5, and BIGGERFIVE fitness tracker for kids are some of the best trackers for small wrists.

Wrapping up

There’s no doubt that the above-mentioned trackers are some of the best trackers you’d find in the market. That said, you should go with your gut while choosing the tracker for small wrists, as there’s no point in choosing anything which is not comfortable for you to wear. So, go with the one which suits your wrist.
