There are quite a few heart rate monitor fitness trackers coming soon to the market. I'm sure many of us (including me) are anxiously awaiting something that can accurately measure calorie expenditure, rather than relying on a pedometer.

Already on the market (or almost on the market) are some other watches/wristbands that might suit your needs, such as:

As ZOD has indicated, for a more accurate record of heart rate, the standard practice is to wear a heart rate monitor belt paired with a wrist watch receiver. Polar heart rate monitors are a leader in that industry.
