Do you have WiFi at home? That will be pumping out 000's times more 'radiation' than the low powered Bluetooth in fitness trackers.
Even your TV will be pumping out more.
It's unavoidable unless you live in a Faraday cage.

I very much doubt anyone would bother making fitness trackers without Bluetooth now, the chips are pennies to install.
