Nothing stays the same forever. Not even the way that you workout! Some good workout clothes and a track used to be more than enough to stay fit. Nowadays, things are a little bit different. Technological advances are being used to make working out easier and more enjoyable. Plus, they can even make tracking calories a cinch. Some gadgets are pretty cool and others probably aren’t all that important. Here are some of the ones that will help you improve your workout:
Few fitness gadgets are making as much noise right now than The Fitbit. What is it? It uses 3D motion sensors to track the amount of calories you’ve burned throughout the day and even the number of steps you’ve taken. What makes this different than other calorie counting types of products is the fact that it can be worn at night. That means that you can find out how long you’ve slept as well as measuring the quality of sleep that you actually got. You won’t even have to waste time inputting all of that data to the computer. Whenever you walk past its ‘base station’ it will wirelessly sync the data for the day. Your online profile will be updated without you ever having to lift a finger! How do you use it? Just clip the Fitbit onto your waist or slip it into your pocket. As long as it is on your body, it will work just fine.
WiFi Connected Body Scale
You don’t always have to be afraid of the scale. In fact, the WiFi Connected Body Scale from Withings can actually help you reach your goals even faster. You can have up to eight people use the scale – and it will automatically remember who you are as soon as you step onto it! Why is this a good thing? You are finding out so much more than your actual weight. The scale itself will send the data to your smart phone or computer to track your weight and BMI. This makes it even easier to see what you’re gaining or losing. If you really want, you an also Tweet your results…but that is one option most people would rather do without.
Oster My Blend Blender
Smoothies can be a great way to start your day…but they can also be messy and time consuming to make. When you’re in a rush, this next handy gadget will be a lifesaver. What makes it different? It’s all about the portability factor. Start by tossing in your fruits and veggies like normal and blend to perfection. Once you have your smoothie ready, forget about dumping into a glass and cleaning out the blender. Instead, detach the blades, put a lid on the bottle, and take it with you. That’s right, your blender is the glass. This is perfect if you have a morning commute to tackle or you just want to save a little time.
There are so many fitness-boosting gadgets to try. To find the right one for you, think about what you need to achieve success. Is it tracking calories? Eating better? Communicating with others? Whatever it may be, rest easy. Chances are, there is already something on the market to help improve your workout.
