3 Smart Gadgets that will Help You Get in Shape
We’ve come a long way since clipping pedometers on waistbands was the trend. From smart watches to smart scales, new technology is helping get many people into shape. The technology has grown from clipping a small device onto your belt to having a wristwatch that tracks your steps, heart rate and how often you exercise and sleep.
The right smart technology will inform and motivate you. Once you decided that you want smart technology to help you with exercising, it’s important to pick the right device for you. Here are a few options consider when selecting a smart exercise gadget:
The Blaze was released in 2016 and It features a heart rate monitor, a step tracker, built-in exercise routines on the watch, and challenges to start with your friends such as the Work Week Hustle and Weekend Warrior challenges.
You can also switch bands on the watch to match your outfit for the day. It has a sleek decision and isn’t as bulky as the Fitbit Surge — an activity tracker that comes with a built in GPS to accurately track your run time and distance. There are other fitness tracker brands on the market too. Research the Garmin Vivofit or Nike’s FuelBand for more options.
Withings Smart Body Analyzer
Going to the doctor and weighing in can be one of the least enjoyable aspects of visiting your physician. The traditional way to weigh in requires just a step onto a metal platform to receiving a reading of your weight. The Withings Smart Body Analyzer is changing that though. This smart scale will not only display your weight but will measure your BMI (Body Mass Index), your body fat percentage, and will even tell you your body temperature.
That may seem like a lot at first, but once you start to utilize the options included in the scale, you’ll wonder how you were able to function before without them. The scale offers a bigger-picture version of your health and helps you reach goals.
Ever wanted to accurately track your heart and pulse rate? It’s possible to do so with an activity tracker but the results aren’t always as accurate as they should be. Purchasing a Pulse Oximeter is a great way to understand your pulse and heart rate and how it relates to your overall health. This device can plug directly into your smartphone and you’ll place a finger-trap shaped device onto the top of your index finger. You’ll be able to get an accurate read on your heart and pulse rates, whenever you want a reading, and those records will be documented in the mobile app.
Each gadget is meant to help you make better decisions about how you exercise. No matter if you’re training for a marathon or your next 5 day online poker tournament, these apps can take your game to the next level. Using smart health devices can boost your chances of reaching your goals and beyond.
