Hi All,
Any recommendations? Ideally I'd like to be able to track heart rate, blood pressure and potentially body fat percentage.

A sports watch won’t accurately track BF%

A sports watch won’t accurately measure BP

A sports watch won’t accurately measure heart rate, they vary from watch to watch depending on the sensor they use.

For BF% just buy a decent set of scales that measure this. The number won’t matter as much as the tendency e.g. numbers going up or down.

Heart rate, the top end watches have better sensors.

Blood pressure, this can only accurately be measured with a blood pressure cuff.

For body fat get a set of calipers - they're far cheaper and consistent. But your best measure is the mirror. Unless you're measuring something medical or doing bodybuilding comps to get to single digit % it's a bit of a con to focus on it in my opinion.

Loads of decent heart rate monitors which you get a band around the chest and a watch to display and download it. Think mine cost less than £50.
