Best Non Bluetooth Fitness Tracker

Best Non Bluetooth Fitness Tracker – There you have it, my list of the best fitness trackers you can use without Bluetooth in 2020. Note that some of these fitness trackers are not completely non-Bluetooth as you might need to connect them to your smartphone via Bluetooth at some point for syncing to ensure you don’t loose any of your fitness tracking data.

That said, syncing is completely optional but important if you want to keep track of your fitness progress on a long term. There are also some completely non-Bluetooth fitness trackers on this list like the IGank fitness tracker and the Mijaowatch fitness tracker and if you don’t want any form of Bluetooth at all, then consider getting any of those to trackers.

OVERVIEW

If you just need something very basic, then checkout the pedometers from OZO i listed above. They a re great for steps counting and nothing more unlike the other trackers that can track things like heart rate, sleep, calories burned and so on.

Best Non Bluetooth Fitness Tracker – BUYER’S GUIDE

However, I think it’s important to briefly talk about why you might want a fitness tracker or Fitbit that doesn’t have bluetooth connectivity.

First of all, Bluetooth, is just another form of RF radiation, which is a type of EMF radiation. Bluetooth is a technology and a frequency that allows devices to maintain data connection and transfer data in real time. It does this by sending packets of data back and forth between the device, and a Bluetooth receiver usually in a phone or computer.

Some may argue that most Bluetooth devices emit less radiation than the government regulatory agencies safe standards for SAR (specific absorption rate) ratings, however, there are a few problems with this.

First of all, many experts feel these standards are FAR from what is actually set. They were decided on in 1996 (and haven’t been changed since!) long before most of the technologies we use today were even around.

If you read this post I wrote about EMF radiation and fertility, I have a section that goes into details about just how off these SAR standards probably are.

One of the main problems is that the researchers that provided information to the FCC when these standards were being set, only focused on the fact that Bluetooth is non-thermal and non-ionizing.

However we now know that even non-ionizing radiation can have negative impacts, especially in close proximity over long periods of time (like in the case of a fitness tracker or smartwatch).

I know I’m going off a bit more than I planned to in this article, but it’s important to know the potential dangers.

If you’ve read many of the articles on my websites, then you probably have a better understanding of the health risks of constant exposure to electromagnetic radiation. These health effects go far beyond skin irritation and rashes but can actually cause significant damage to the human body given enough time.

The bottom line is that even fairly low amounts of EMF radiation like we are exposed to from Bluetooth devices can have negative effects, especially from prolonged exposure.
