In this article, we’ve listed the best budget fitness trackers that you could buy in Nepal right now. Fitness trackers (aka fitness bands) have made our lives a lot easier. And while keeping track of health may have become easy because of such devices, buying the perfect one for you is a different story altogether.

You can go for a full-fledged smartwatch or maybe a modest fitness tracker. Or instead, you can choose one from the now trending budget fitness trackers. So in this article, we’ll be talking about the best cheap, budget fitness trackers (fitness bands) you can buy in Nepal. Let’s begin.

Best budget fitness trackers in Nepal:

7. Amazfit Band 5

Taking the seventh position on our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal is the Amazfit Band 5. If you didn’t already know, Amazfit’s parent company Huami also manufactures Xiaomi’s wearables which include the Mi Band 5, 6, and other newer modes. And the Amazfit Band 5 is pretty similar to the Mi Band 5 which is no longer in Nepal.

Anyway, it features a 1.1″ AMOLED screen with a peak brightness of 450 nits. Just like its previous iterations, Amazfit has installed a 2.5D reinforced glass and anti-fingerprint coating on this one too. And as you’d expect, this panel is extremely vibrant with great contrast and plenty of brightness to be visible in outdoor situations as well. As for health tracking, the Amazfit Band 5 includes an SpO2 sensor for logging your blood oxygen saturation levels.

Built-in Alexa

Now, even though none of the fitness trackers is a substitute for a dedicated medical device, Amazfit Band 5’s SpO2 monitoring is still a decent indicator of your health. Moreover, it has 24/7 heart rate (PPG heart rate sensor), 24-hour sleep, step, stress, sports (11 in total: walking, yoga, cycle, jump rope, swim, freestyle, etc.), and women’s health (menstrual cycle, ovulation phases) tracking.

Besides this, it also has Amazon Alexa built-in. Although you won’t be able to make phone calls on this, Amazfit lets you get your answers, translations, or set alarms via Alexa. The Amazfit Band 5 boasts an incredible battery life too; 15 days under normal usage and up to a whopping 25 days under battery-saving mode. And this fitness band fuels up using Amazfit’s magnetic charger in a little over an hour.

Amazfit Band 5 - Color Options

Okay, while the Amazfit Band 5 is certainly a competent entry-level fitness tracker, it’s best that you expand your budget and get something newer instead. Like the Amazfit Band 7, Redmi Band Pro, or other ones that you’ll come across later in this list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal. Not only do they look much more modern than the Band 5, but their feature suite—including health and fitness tracking ones—are a lot more mature as well.

Amazfit Band 5 Specifications:

  • Display: 1.1″ AMOLED panel, 294 x 126 pixels resolution

  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 4,400

6. Mi Smart Band 6

Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 - Black

The next entry in our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal is the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 (or Mi Band 6). As other manufacturers shift to a bigger form factor in their newest fitness bands, Xiaomi followed suit as well. Compared to the 1.1″ screen on its predecessor, the Mi Band 6 has a bigger 1.56″ AMOLED display. Despite this, both of them are packaged in a similar body.

This means that Xiaomi has gotten rid of the top and bottom bezels to accommodate a bigger screen. While this big screen sure does look nice, the cramped layout means it doesn’t quite solve the issues with the smaller display on the Mi Band 5. The font size in notifications and other menus is quite small and it’s relatively less readable compared to say… the Honor Band 6 or numerous other options that you’ll come across later on this list.

SpO2 monitoring

Despite this, the system text, animations look quite sharp here and colors pop out quite nicely as well. Another upgrade in last year’s Mi Band is the inclusion of blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring. While it doesn’t support continuous SpO2 tracking, it can record your SpO2 levels overnight. Besides this, the Mi Band 6 can keep track of your heart rate, stress, and sleep quality as well.

As for exercises, this fitness tracker supports 30 fitness modes in total, including ones like HIIT, basketball, zumba, pilates, and more. And it can automatically recognize and start recording 6 workouts on its own too. Mi Band 6 packs the same 125mAh battery that’s rated to last up to 14 days in normal mode.

Mi Smart Band 6 Specifications:

  • Display: 1.56″ AMOLED panel, 326 x 152 pixels resolution, 326 PPI
  • Dial shape: Elliptical
  • Body: 18.6 x 12.7 x 47.4 mm, 12.8gm

  • Compatible with: Android 5.0, iOS 10.0 and above

5. Honor Band 6

Honor Band 6 - Sandstone Grey

Moving on, the Honor Band 6 takes the fifth spot in our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal. Now, it is quite similar to the Huawei Band 6 below, so I’ll be keeping this short here. The Honor Band 6 arrives in a similar build as its Huawei counterpart, but this one has a slightly inferior design language.

While the Huawei Band 6 has a metallic finish on its polymer fiber frame, the one on the Honor Band 6 is plain plastic—and there’s a rather off-putting “Honor” branding on the left frame as well. But since that part won’t be the center of attraction when putting on this fitness band, it’s not that big a deal.

On top of this, the Honor Band 6 is 5 ATM resistant as well. As a result, you can wear it even during deep dive swimming sessions without a care in the world. Plus, the band can even track your swimming workout. Talking about workouts, this can track 10 of them in total—including automatic detection of 6 workouts. These include indoor and outdoor running, indoor and outdoor walking, rowing, and elliptical machine.

No 24-hour SpO2 tracking

Compared to the Huawei Band 6 which boasts 96 workout modes, this is a pretty small number. Yet, it is crucial to understand that Huawei’s wearable basically records the same health metrics in all those 80+ miscellaneous workouts. However, it does bring a couple of crucial features like all-day SpO2 monitoring and newer TruSleep 2.0 that the Honor Band 6 lacks.

Honor Band 6 Launched Price Nepal Fitness Band Tracker

Fueling this budget fitness tracker is a 180mAh battery that is rated to last up to 2 weeks. Under regular usage, you can easily squeeze out 10 days of endurance from this thing. Plus, the Honor Band 6 also supports fast charging which takes its battery from 0 to 100% in under 50 minutes.

Honor Band 6 Specifications:

  • Display: 1.47″ AMOLED panel, 368 x 194 pixels resolution
  • Dial shape: Squarish
  • Body: 25.4 x 11.45 x 43 mm, 18gm (without strap)
  • Strap: Proprietary silicone strap (removable)
  • Battery: Up to 14 days endurance; 2-pin POGO pin charging (magnetic)
  • Connection: Bluetooth v5.0
  • Compatible with: Android 5.0, iOS 9.0 and above
  • IP Rating: 5 ATM water-resistance
  • Sensors: Acceleration, Gyroscope, Optical heart rate, SpO2

  • Colors: Meteorite Black, Sandstone Grey, Coral Pink
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 6,490

4. Redmi Smart Band Pro

Redmi Smart Band Pro - Black

And taking the fourth position on our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal is the Redmi Smart Band Pro. This is the first Redmi-branded fitness band to officially arrive in the Nepali market. And it’s quite a capable fitness tracker as well. You can keep track of over 110 exercise modes here; including the basic ones like running, walking, cycling, and pool swimming, all the way to yoga, trail running, and more.

And it can automatically record walking, running, and treadmill exercises as well. It’s got a nice suite of health-tracking features too. Redmi Smart Band Pro supports 24-hour heart-rate monitoring and it can also alert you if your heart-rate level is abnormally high or abnormally low. Besides this, there’s also stress, sleep, female health tracking, and breathing exercise support.

No all-day SpO2 monitoring

Unfortunately, it can’t automatically keep a log of your blood oxygen level all through the day. In the current day and age, that’s quite an important omission. So if you want 24-hour SpO2 tracking, then you can check out other entries on our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal instead. Getting to design, the Redmi Smart Band Pro looks pretty basic for a 2022 fitness tracker. And it doesn’t help that the band is available only in a single black color option.

Anyway, while there’s no dust protection here, it is 5 ATM water-resistant up to 50 meters deep. Redmi Smart Band Pro also sports a nice 1.47″ AMOLED display with an incredible 100% NTSC color coverage. And apart from its sharp pixel density, this fitness band can also stay plenty bright outdoors thanks to its 450 nits max brightness. When it comes to watch faces, Redmi gives you over 50 options to choose from here.

Redmi Smart Band Pro Price in Nepal

That certainly isn’t a lot compared to what competitors like Huawei, Honor, and Amazfit offer for their fitness bands, but that selection should grow over time. And I gotta say that Redmi’s available watch face options are quite nice too. This fitness band promises two weeks of battery life under typical usage—or up to 20 days under power-saving mode via its 200mAh battery. And it fuels up via a regular 2-pin magnetic POGO connector.

Redmi Smart Band Pro Specifications:

  • Display: 1.47″ AMOLED panel, 368 x 194 pixels resolution, 100% NTSC
  • Dial shape: Squarish
  • Body: 24.45 x 10.15 x 42.05 mm, 15gm (without strap)
  • Strap: TPU strap (black)
  • Battery: Up to 14 days endurance; 2-pin POGO pin charging (magnetic)
  • Connection: Bluetooth v5.0 (BLE)
  • Compatible with: Android 6.0, iOS 10.0 and above
  • IP Rating: 5 ATM water-resistance
  • Sensors: 6-axis (3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope), PPG heart rate, Light
  • Functions: Alarm, Calories Burned, DND, Heart Rate Monitor, Notifications, Sleep Tracking, Step Counter, Sports Mode (110), Blood Oxygen, Women’s Health
  • Companion App: Mi Fitness (Android | iOS)
  • Colors: Black
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 6,199

3. Huawei Band 6

Huawei Band 6 - Amber Sunrise

Now, the bronze medal in our list of best budget fitness trackers goes to the Huawei Band 6. It is actually quite similar to the comparatively cheaper Honor Band 6 above—and also the Huawei Band 7 that you’ll find later on this list. And considering everything you’re getting for the price, this is easily one of the best budget fitness trackers in Nepal right now.

From its bold design to other perks, it outclasses much of the competition by a long shot. It sports a wide, large 1.47″ AMOLED display for excellent visibility and readability. So every UI elements are much easier to read and comprehend here, while navigating through swipes on this comparatively wider screen is also quite easier. Not to mention, the color reproduction and brightness levels of this screen are fantastic as well.

Premium build quality

Anyway, it has a fairly premium build quality too. This polymer fiber watch frame brings a metallic texture that feels quite nice. It also has a button on the side to wake up the screen or trigger the menu. Huawei also promises up to 96 workout modes on this fitness tracker. However, besides the 10 professional modes, all it does on the remaining ones is track your heart rate, calories burnt, and classify the stress of training.

Huawei Band 6 Color Options Design Display

And like most other fitness trackers, the Huawei Band 6 also supports automatic workout detection. Moving on, a unique feature of this band compared to every other entry in our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal so far, is its ability to record your blood oxygen levels throughout the day. More specifically, the Huawei Band 6 graphs your SpO2 level every 30 minutes all day.

Additionally, its TruSleep 2.0-powered sleep tracking can detect 6 major sleep problems and up to 200 suggestions to improve your sleep quality. In terms of battery endurance, Huawei says the band can last up to 14 days under normal usage. And it fuels up via a proprietary 2-pin POGO magnetic charger.

Huawei Band 6 Specifications:

  • Display: 1.47″ AMOLED panel, 368 x 194 pixels resolution
  • Dial shape: Squarish
  • Body: 25.4 x 11.45 x 43 mm, 18gm (without strap)

2. Amazfit Band 7

Amazfit Band 7 - Black

Likewise, the new Amazfit Band 7 takes the second spot on our list of best budget fitness trackers in Nepal. Compared to the Amazfit Band 5 above, this guy introduces a massive upgrade on the design front, While the Band 5 had this classic slim, narrow display, the Amazfit Band 7 gets a much wider 1.47″ AMOLED display instead. That translates to a roughly 112% larger viewing area here. So every UI element including texts, icons, and animations look much clearer on this fitness band.

Not just that, but the actual quality of its display is quite nice as well; be it in terms of sharpness, colors, brightness, or viewing angles. It also supports Always-on Display (AoD) and Amazfit says there are over 50 watch faces with matching AoD for the Band 7. As for the color options, you can find this fitness band in multiple finishes including black, beige, pink, green, and more. But not all of them have made it to the Nepali market.

Fluid Zepp OS

In terms of software, the Amazfit Band 7 runs on the company’s proprietary Zepp OS platform (do note that Amazfit’s newer smartwatches run on the updated Zepp OS 2.0 platform instead). With this, you can expect a well-designed software experience with fluid UI/UX responsiveness. There’s also an app store here that lets you install up to 10 mini-apps.

Amazfit Band 7 Price in Nepal Specifications Where to buy

When it comes to health monitoring, the Amazfit Band 7 covers most options you’d expect from a budget fitness tracker. From 24 hour heart-rate, SpO2, and stress tracking to sleep monitoring, it can do them all. And I find the one-tap measurement feature especially useful where I can get my heart rate, blood-oxygen saturation, and stress level reading with just one tap instead of having to individually measure them one by one.

Amazfit Band 7 is also pretty great at fitness tracking. The company says it can log over 120 different sports modes here, although the majority of them keep track of your heart rate, calories burnt, and other basic data only; instead of workout-specific metrics. Thanks to its 5 ATM water resistance, the Band 7 can also record your pool swimming exercises. Then there’s the PAI health assessment system, which encourages you to engage in daily exercise routines by assigning a score to your entire day’s health and fitness data.

And among the 120 sports modes, the band can also automatically recognize and record 4 of them. These include walking, running, elliptical, and rowing machines. As for the battery, the Amazfit Band 7 sports a 232mAh cell that promises up to 18 days of endurance on a typical usage pattern. And that number goes down to around 12 days under a heavy usage scenario with a lot of fitness tracking.

Amazfit Band 7 Specifications:

  • Display: 1.47″ AMOLED panel, 368 x 198 pixels resolution
  • Dial shape: Squarish
  • Body: 24.36 x 12.2 x 42.33 mm, 28gm (with strap)
  • Strap: TPU strap (16mm wide)
  • Battery: Up to 18 days endurance; 2-pin POGO pin charging (magnetic)
  • Connection: Bluetooth v5.2 (BLE)
  • Compatible with: Android 7.0, iOS 12.0 and above

  • Companion App: Zepp (Android | iOS)
  • Colors: Black, Beige, Pink
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 6,799

1. Huawei Band 7

Huawei Band 7 - Flame Red

Finally, the number one spot on our list of best budget fitness trackers goes to the newly launched Huawei Band 7. It is quite similar to last year’s Huawei Band 6 (which is still available in Nepal by the way), but kicks in a few extra features like Always-on Display support and slightly slimmer and lighter build quality. More importantly, Huawei Nepal has launched the Band 7 at a somewhat reasonable price considering how the Band 6 made its debut at an outrageous price of Rs. 9,490.

Anyway, Huawei Band 7 continues the legacy of its predecessors almost to a fault. By that, I mean how the company has introduced so few upgrades this time. From the display and battery life to all the health and fitness tracking it is pretty much the same as the Huawei Band 6. So while that essentially means Band 6 owners have no reason to upgrade to this, if you’re in the market for a new fitness band, this is definitely one of the best options available in Nepal right now.

First up is its spacious 1.47″ AMOLED display that is plenty sharp, colorful, and bright enough to deliver clear outdoor visibility. I would’ve liked to see Huawei add automatic brightness adjustment this time but that’s non-existent here. But the Band 7 does have this option that automatically dims the display at night when enabled. It’s not the most elegant solution out there, but I’ll take it.

Attractive color options

Anyway, it has a fairly nice build quality as well. Available in four color options, the Huawei Band 7 uses polymer materials for the case with a nice satin matte finish. For easier navigation, it has a button on the right frame with which you can wake up the screen, go to the homescreen, or launch the workout menu. Its strap is user-removable and you can also find third-party straps for the Huawei Band 7.

Huawei Band 7 Price in Nepal

As for fitness tracking, it supports a total of 96 workout modes—just like its predecessor. The band can also detect a few exercises including walking, running, and more on its own. And after you complete a workout, it gives a fairly detailed read of the session, including training load. But unfortunately, there is no built-in GPS on this fitness band, so you’ll need your phone for that.

Huawei Band 7 has got most health monitoring features covered. This includes all-day heart rate, stress, and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2). It can also send you an alert in case any of those values hit an abnormal level. And with TruSleep 2.0 algorithm, Band 7 can detect 6 major sleep problems and up to 200 suggestions to improve your sleep quality. Battery-wise, Huawei promises up to 2 weeks of endurance here. Just like in the Band 6.

Huawei Band 7 Specifications:

  • Display: 1.47″ AMOLED panel, 368 x 194 pixels resolution
  • Dial shape: Squarish
  • Body: 26 x 9.99 x 44.35 mm, 16gm (without strap)
  • Strap: Proprietary silicone strap (removable)
  • Battery: Up to 14 days endurance; 2-pin POGO pin charging (magnetic)
  • Connection: Bluetooth v5.0
  • Compatible with: Android 6.0, iOS 9.0 and above
  • IP Rating: 5 ATM water-resistance
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Optical heart rate

  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 7,990
