This advanced fitness tracker will track your daily steps, Calories burned, Distance covered, Active hours and Sleep pattern.

The best part about this fitness band is you will get a qualified personal coach and a certified doctor to review your data and to guide you to achieve your health goals. Along with these features, you will get basic features like call alerts, SMS and WhatsApp notifications and steps counter.

The step counter is very impressive with almost 90-95% accuracy of total steps you take. The battery back-up is amazing with an average of 15-20 days depending upon your usage.

You have an option to go for 3 months/6 months/1 year subscription for unlimited personal coaching sessions and certified doctor based on your preferences.

Overall The GOQii Life Fitness band is one of the best fitness trackers in India and certainly very affordable if you are a fitness freak who wants to a deep understanding of their active lifestyle.

Xiaomi Mi Band (Best for starters) 

Mi Band Smart Wristband for Android, iPhone and Other Smartphones...
  • Water resistant
  • Sleep-cycle smart alarm
  • Fitness monitor and sleep tracker
  • It can connect with your Android 4.4 or above smartphone
  • Battery can last up to 30 days

The MI fitness band from Xiaomi is the best one if you are tight on budget and would like to start making changes to your lifestyle by looking at your daily activities. It is one of the cheapest fitness band in India.

If you’re looking for a fitness band below Rs. 1000 then this is the best choice for you.

You will be able to use features like step counter, sleep monitoring, heart rate monitor, alarm clock, phone calls reminder etc. This fitness tracker will give you all the features that are available with other high-end fitness bands available in the market.

The battery life for this band is pretty good as it runs for approximately 5-7 days.

When it comes to the pedometer feature of this band it pretty much gives 80-90% accuracy for the number of step counts. This fitness band is considered to be one of the best pedometers for walking because of its wonderful step counter feature.

The heart rate feature of this band is not that effective and therefore don't pay much attention to the heart rate. 

The Xiaomi Fitness band syncs well both with all android and iPhones.

MI 2 band (Best budget fitness tracker)

  • For technical issues kindly contact toll free number 1800 103 6286

Xiaomi recently launched their MI fitness band 2 during the last quarter of 2016 with much better features than the original Xiaomi Fitness band. The new features include an OLED display which was not there in the first band. The step counter in this band is more accurate than the last one as they’ve improved the algorithm that only counts the steps and not your hand movements.

The company claims that the battery life is 20 days however my experience with this band is that it lasts 10-12 days which is pretty amazing. It connects well with all Android phones and iPhones.

The heart rate sensor is pretty accurate and for accurate results during the workout wear the band on the inside of the wrist.

It has the regular features of giving you notifications of your SMS, email, WhatsApp, etc.

Intex Fitrist Health Band

The Intent Fitrist is yet another good product from Intex and has the basic features of measuring your distance, calories and step counts and also sending notifications of your calls, texts, WhatsApp etc. Battery life is not that great as it will only last for about 5-7 days as per the company. As per my experience, the battery only lasted for 2 days.

The step counter feature or the pedometer is not accurate and gives false readings. This is something that the company needs to improve if they want to stay in this fitness band market otherwise. If you are looking for a Cheap fitness band below INR 1000 that can just connect with your phone and send you notifications when you should buy this one.

Finally in my humble opinion if you are interested in buying a fitness band to track your sleep patterns, steps, and other activities then I would not go for this one.

Conclusion

While there are a number of fitness bands available in the market these are the five Best Fitness bands below Rs. 2000.

My personal recommendation is you should go for either MI band 3 from Xiaomi or the GOQii (with a minimum of 6 months coaching).
