FIG. 2 is a front view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a back view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 4 is a top view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 5 is a bottom view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 6 is a side view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 7 is an opposite side view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 8 is an off-angle view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 9 is a different off-angle view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 10 is yet another off-angle view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1.

FIG. 11 is an isometric view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 1 in a band-closed configuration, such as is formed when the ends of the band are fastened together, as shown; the band portions of the low-profile fitness tracker are made from a flexible material, allowing them to be flexed into the configuration shown in order to be worn.

FIG. 12 is an off-angle of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 11 in the band-closed configuration; and,

FIG. 13 is a detail view of the low-profile fitness tracker of FIG. 6.

The low-profile fitness tracker depicted in the accompanying figures may be worn on a person's wrist. The low-profile fitness tracker may include two wristband straps that are flexible to allow the wristband straps to form a loop.

Stipple shading is used in all of the accompanying figures to convey surface contouring and not texture. The broken lines shown in the drawings illustrate portions of the low-profile fitness tracker that form no part of the claimed design; dash-dot-dot boundary lines and rectangles indicate a transition between claimed and unclaimed subject matter. Surfaces that do not include stipple shading and are bounded, at least in part, by broken lines and/or dash-dot-dot boundary lines or rectangles form no part of the claimed design.

Claims

We claim the ornamental design for a low-profile fitness tracker, as shown and described.
