It comes as no surprise that as the population becomes more technologically savvy, that our workout gear would as well. If you have not seen a downloaded, seen or heard of a workout app, you certainly will now that you’re planning to hit the gym! Wearable technology is all the hype right now. Whether you are turning to your smart phone for the day’s fitness program or tapping your wrist to kick-start the beginning of your workout, gym routines have become more technologically integrated than ever before. Among some of the most adapted are listed below.
Don’t let this simple-looking wristband fool you. The FitBit Force is the latest in the FitBit family.
The wireless wristband keeps track of the numbe ros teps you’ve taken, stairs climed, number of minutes you’ve worked out in the day and even tracks your sleep. Available in a variety of colours and compatible with iPhone and select android phones, the LED screen displays the stats to keep you motivated.
Nike+ FuelBand SE – Limited Edition Rose Gold
Like FitBit Force, this chic limited edition wireless wristband helps you keep track of your workout and sleep. Unlike FitBit Force, this wristband only syncs with iPhones and is not quite as flexible on the arm. One of the few benefits is that it is sleeker, more fashionable. In addition to that, FitBit Force really takes into account running, stair climbing and walking, while Nike + Fuelband takes into account calories burned with other workout activities.
