5 reasons why the Fitbit Inspire HR is perfect for the fashion-forward

Can be great accessories!



It is the time of wearables! Though smartwatches with built-in fitness tracking are all the rage, there are still the stylish and fashion-forward who prefer pretty bracelets, watches, and accessories to a smartwatch staple.

This doesn’t mean you have to turn your back on fitness wearables though. There are a few fitness trackers out there that will definitely agree with whatever your personal style is and the Fitbit Inspire HR is one of them. Here are a few reasons why.

It already looks cute in lavender

The Fitbit Inspire HR has this pastel lavender option and it’s muted enough not to be too eye-catching and pretty enough not to be too boring.

It also does not scream “sports trackers!” which is a general concern we ladies have when it comes to wearables.

The straps are made of silicon so you can definitely wear them anywhere without ruining it.

There are other beautiful strap options

If lavender isn’t your jam, there are a number of other options to choose from. My favorite is this gold mesh strap that gives the Inspire HR that more formal vibe.

The options don’t stop there: There are leather straps, floral prints, patterns, and even more colors.

Unfortunately, not all the straps are available in all Fitbit countries. Nevertheless, the choice is there if you can get to them.

It doesn’t eat up that much arm real estate

The fact that this tracker isn’t too bulky means you have space on your arms for other accessories!

Layering jewelry is an option and your classic analog luxury watch (yes, a statement piece, I know) can still go on your other wrist. It’s an arm party!

You can also change the watch faces

Though the Inspire HR doesn’t do watch faces as complicated as the Fitbit Versa’s Bitmoji faces, there are still options.

I love the attention to detail as tiny as this. I’m personally liking this minimal analog clock face because it doesn’t feel too cluttered with numbers.

You still get great fitness tracking functions

This tiny thing has 24-hour heart rate tracking, sleep tracking, activity tracking, and calorie burn tracking. It’s also waterproof so you can track your swimming.

The Inspire HR runs with the Fitbit app. Connecting it to your phone means you’ll be able to get customizable smartphone alerts and connected GPS so you can track your runs. What I especially love is the built-in female health tracker that integrates your period tracking into your overall health stats. Battery power is pretty good, too, lasting me four to five days on a single charge.

The Fitbit Inspire HR retails for PhP 6,290 in the Philippines and SG$ 158 in Singapore.


Global Sources: Sustainable Cases



At a show like Global Sources iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but what caught our attention are companies with a commitment to sustainability.

Shenzhen Bobotel Technology

Take Shenzhen Bobotel Technology for example, who makes eco-friendly cases made of wheat straw — a biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic.

They can make cases for your iPhone, Samsung, or Huawei phones, in any color you desire. Each case starts at 90 cents at a minimum order of 50 units.

C&V Global

Guangzhou-based C&V Global offers similar products, too. The company has been certified by the Global Recycled Standard.

They have iPhone cases made from recycled plastic waste. In its purest form, it looks like a simple, clear jelly case but it can come in a variety of colors in both matte and glossy finishes.

They also make biodegradable cases made of wheat straw or bamboo fiber and thermoplastics. These cases can be engraved with your favorite pro-environment slogans as well.

The product decomposes naturally after two years if you decide to discard them. You can buy the cases through CTunes.
