Technology is everywhere today, and the world of fitness is also not immune to the charms of technology! Fitness industry is suddenly seeing a revolution with everyone jumping on to the train of fitness trackers.
What are Fitness Trackers?
These trackers are wearable technology i.e. gadgets that silently work at collecting data about you. They count the number of steps you take in a day, the distance you walk in a day, they monitor your heart rate, they know whether you are climbing stairs or hiking up a mountain, they know how many hours you slept, was it sound sleep or not, they will even tell you how many times you woke up in the night etc.
Use of Fitness Trackers
These little gadgets collect data and send it to you on your smart phone. You can set alarms on your tracker app so that it will give you a little reminder if you have been sitting idle for too long and need to get up and start moving. They will tell you if you have a healthy heart rate or not.
Experts say that a healthy resting heart rate should be below 70. So if you have a higher resting heart rate, it can be improved with regular cardiovascular activity. Similarly, fitness experts agree that 10000 steps a day are good for heart health. Your tracker will help you in achieving this goal by monitoring your activity levels every day.
Fitness trackers are a good investment if you are really serious about improving your health and fitness. But finally, it is you who has to exercise and control your diet!
