Because January is the month most of us decide to fulfill our New Year’s resolutions about getting back in to shape, it helps that there are so many new and simple gadgets that can keep us on track and not give up on our goals before February.
One of the most important advancements in modern technology has been the development of products that help us actually get out and get active. Combining GPS, miniature computers and a host of feedback sensors, fitness trackers help you measure and monitor a wide variety of factors so you can see just how active you’ve been, and how active you need to be to reach your health goals.
Some of the best include:
- Basis Peak. This fitness tracker represents some of the most advanced and efficient technology on the market. It’s Android™ and iOS® compatible, and lasts about four days on a single charge of its lightweight battery. Not only that, but its sensors also automatically detect your activity, be it running, biking or even sleeping.
- Withings Pulse O2. Pocket-sized but powerful, the Withings Pulse O2 is easy to take with you wherever you go, easy to read with a bright LED screen, a finger sensor that monitors your heart and a wrist mount that can track your sleep. Perfect for anyone on the go who needs to know their fitness levels, but doesn’t want to be encumbered by bulky technology.
- Jawbone Up Move. This super-affordable tracker is a button-sized wonder that’s battery-powered and multicolored. It tracks your steps and feet, and syncs the information right to its custom app that you can easily access through your compatible smartphone. Not only that, but you can also log your meals, and challenge you with fitness goals throughout your day and workout.
Take advantage of these wonders of technology to help keep your fitness goals on track throughout 2015. If you pick one of these and stick with the plan, you’ll have to make a new resolution come 2016!
