The Leaf Review: Smart Jewelry by Bellabeat

What is it: The Leaf by Bellabeat, smart jewelry that helps track your activities.

Price and Where to Buy the Leaf: Starts at $119 on Bellabeat’s website.


  • Can be worn discreetly—we clipped ours on to the side of our boot and it was unnoticeable, unlike traditional fitness trackers
  • Stylish design comes in silver or rose gold
  • Can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, or clipped on
  • Battery lasts for up to six months without charging
  • Wirelessly syncs with your smartphone
  • 14 day memory
  • Can set silent reminder and wake-up alarms
  • Tracks and analyzes your sleep
  • Monitors your activities (customize your goal for active minutes or steps)
  • Can set an inactive alarm to alert you if you’ve been sedentary too long
  • Includes breathing exercises to help you relax


  • Not water-resistant, although it can stand up to sweat during a workout

How the Leaf Rates:

      • Usefulness: 10/10. The Leaf is a great way to make sure that you’re getting enough physical activity throughout the day.
      • Value: 9/10. The materials are high quality, and this is a good price for a fitness tracker.
      • Portability: 10/10. Since the Leaf can be worn in so many different ways, you can conceal it if you want or show it off like jewelry. It’s also small and lightweight.
      • Cool Factor: 10/10. The design is unique and much cooler than other wearables on the market.

Final Verdict: If you want to track your activities and sleep, but hate wearing a rubber bracelet like the FitBit, the Leaf is a great and stylish choice.
