Being a Fitbit, the Ionic tracks steps, distance covered, calories burned in one day and also how well you've slept. It also tracks how many flights of stairs you’ve walked up, handy if you want to know how many flights of stairs a hill is equivalent to. The Ionic can remind you to move when you been sitting for too long as well.

The Ionic can be used for other activities than just running as it has personalised coaching workouts that guide you through specific exercises. It is admittedly a bit cumbersome to check how to perform each exercise on your wrist on a little display but it can help beginners in gyms.
