last five years, dozens of companies have rolled out scores of fitness trackers
and wearable tech that can easily transform your life, or at least how you
exercise and track your progress. However, it must be noted that not all brands
are noteworthy. Some of the many products are just hyped up and quite futile at
the prices they sell for. You need to pick gadgets that are reliable.

like a smart-band, has motion sensors tracking your movement. No matter what
you do, what kind of fitness routine you have, the sports you play or the
simple activities involving movement, you can measure your motions and get Nike
Fuel points. You can compare your level of activity with others. 10,000 steps

Charge HR takes the tech a tad further than the Fuelband. It doesn’t just
track your steps but also the effort you are putting in. How hard you are
working out, your heart rate and the calories you burn are accurately estimated
by the Fitbit Charge HR. You can also measure your heart rate when you are
sleeping or just lazing on the couch.
- There are stopwatches or running watches and
there is the Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS.
It is no ordinary running watch. You can schedule your training session, track
your performance, you can get tips and you get GPS to help en-route.
- If you don’t like to wear a watch or you don’t
think there is a need, then you would want to try Strava Run and Strava
Cycling. These are smart phone apps that can track your activity, plot the
route using GPS and can also keep records of your performance, while helping
you to improve. Whether you are working out in a gym, running on the beach or
cycling, these apps would be very handy.
- Regardless of the level of activity or the
fitness routine you have, you must watch your weight. Thus, you need a weighing
scale. Traditional scales are now archaic. We all know that what matters more
than the weight is the body mass index. We also know that sudden weight gain
and abrupt weight loss are both equally undesirable. The Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale can help you to track your weight,
observe changes and you can have your body mass index estimated. The device can
keep records of as many as seven people at a time. There is also an app that
provides you access to all the data and you can also manage the records.
