Fitness tracker & Wristbands

Adhesive solutions for the daily partner.



The inconspicuous fitness trackers, worn on the wrist, are an increasing feature of everyday life. They record physical activities and health-relevant data that can be collected and evaluated by an app. Modern electronics are integrated into these intelligent wristbands, opening the way to many possible applications. Fitness trackers are exposed to many external influences and are made from high-quality components. This has to be taken into account at the design stage.

What are fitness trackers?

Like smartwatches, fitness trackers, also called activity trackers, health armbands or wristbands, form part of the wearables category. Although many electronic wristbands have displays and among other things can tell you the time and date, they differ markedly from smartwatches. Their main task is recording physical activities, such as running distances and recording health-relevant data, like heart frequency. They evolved from simple step counters, which they have left far behind in terms of the scope of their functions and possible uses. In many fitness trackers, simple information can be read directly on the status display or an integrated display. The wristbands are normally connected wirelessly with the smartphone and transmit the data for further analysis to an app installed on the smartphone.

The sales figures of fitness trackers have chalked up enormous growth. In recent years, the sale of devices has increased many times over. Forecasts expect worldwide sales of 490 million wristbands by 2023.

Fitness tracker components and adhesive applications

The most important components in a fitness tracker are the numerous sensors for recording the various kinds of data. Sensors for position, movement, temperature, or heart frequency (optical sensor technology) are integrated inside the wristband or on the surfaces in contact with the skin. Moreover, many fitness trackers feature the option of alerting the wearer to a particular event by vibrating. Information can be displayed via display units like status LEDs or mini-displays. Other components of fitness trackers are the processor module, network module and battery.

All components are fully integrated into the wristband and the end product should be something that is comfortable to wear. Adhesive solutions are often used for the assembly of these components. Below you will find an overview of the most common applications for fitness tracker and wristbands:

  • Lens mounting
  • Battery mounting
  • Sensor mounting
  • Heat pipe mounting
  • FPCs mounting
  • PCBs mounting
  • Speaker mesh mounting
  • Deco/Logo mounting
  • Button fixation
  • Display lamination
  • Shielding and grounding
  • Covering

Hardware requirements

Fitness trackers are worn in everyday life, at work, or during sports and in part even at night-time. The wristbands should not hamper the wearer's activities and be comfortable. At the same time, the hardware has to work reliably and record the data desired without interference from external influences. Despite the many electronic components on the inside, the wristbands should be light, and comfortable, while also looking good. This results in a range of different requirements for the needed adhesive solutions.
