Looking to finally start -- and maintain -- a fitness regimen this summer? Exercise trackers, also referred to as activity or fitness monitors, have been all the fuss lately. You know, those bracelets and clip-on devices that people wear to track how many steps they've taken, the distance they've traveled, and the calories they've burned throughout the day. The latest offerings can even distinguish between exercises such as a normal push-up and a triangle push-up. Of course, those cost a pretty penny. The best cheap devices still give wearers the insight of seeing their stats and push them to exercise a little more every day.

Cheapism.com has highlighted four top fitness trackers that cost less than $70. All the devices are water (i.e., sweat and rain) resistant and two are waterproof. They use Bluetooth to sync wirelessly with a mobile app and/or online interface and provide a more in-depth and long-term view of the user's activity. There's a definite bias toward Apple iOS devices, although some can sync with Android phones and may or may not sync with a computer. See Cheapism's chart comparing fitness trackers to be sure you have a compatible device.
