The Basis Fitness Tracker For Dads and Grads!

I received Basis Fitness Tracker in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

You know when you go on trips and you have that little souvenir that you grab everywhere you go? For some people its post cards, keychains, or shot glasses, for me it is magnets. My husband collects watches. Yeah, you read that right. Watches. Every time we go on an adventure he grabs a watch to remember it by. It is actually a really fun, although kinda pricy, little tradition.

In the last little while my husband and I have made a special effort to be more healthy. We have tried a couple of different fitness trackers to help us stay more aware of our movements. Each of us have a favorite for different reasons, but lately my husband has been frustrated with trying to wear one of his watches AND a fitness tracker. A few weeks ago in frustration he said, “I want a watch that functions as a fitness tracker, not a fitness tracker that tells me that time!”  Knowing his birthday was coming up (you should be thinking Father’s Day or Graduation too!) I went in search of something that would fit his expectations, and I found a solution and so much more than I expected with The Basis Fitness Tracker.


This fitness tracker looks and feels like a watch, but includes some pretty awesome technology. In fact it’s band contains the most advanced sensors on the market, capturing heart rate patterns, motion, calorie expenditure by activity, multiple sleep stages, including REM—even perspiration and skin temperature. All you have to do is wear it!


It syncs wirelessly to your smart phone or can connect via USB using your computer to collect data and track your movement and habits. My favorite part is once you have collected all your data, The Basis will actually help make suggestions on how to reach you goals! It analyzes your data and gives you small steps to take in your daily routine to help change habits and behaviors. Whether it is extra sleep or more time spent exercising, The Basis can help you get there.



My husband was so surprised with this gift and is loving it! He wears it all the time and gets lots of compliments on his “watch”. As a watch lover he loves that the attention comes first as a beautiful watch and then more surprise when when people find out what it really does! This tracker has all the bells and whistles you need in an easy to use format! It is the PERFECT gift for your dad this Father’s Day or a great Graduation present for your favorite grad! The Basis fitness tracker is $199 and can be found here.
