Smart watches for fitness

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Rafael and James conveniently forgot their shirts. But, look closely (I'm sure some of you already are): something else is missing on their wrists.

Some personal trainers told us they are considering muscling their way into one of the hottest news trends in fitness: getting themselves a brand-new Nike Fuel Band SE or the just-announced Adidas Smart Watch.

Adidas new smart watch comes with built-in GPS tracking, Bluetooth connectivity, and pulse-based heart-rate tracking.

For roughly half of the $399 Adidas price, Nike offers an activity tracker that tells you thing like how many steps you take during the day and how well you sleep at night. You wear it 24 hours a day.

Companies like Fitbit and Jawbone make something similar to Nike.

But the small wrist bands and watches are already creating some big competition.
