Fitness tracking gadgets, activity trackers, portable heart rate monitors and so on are your best allies when you want to supervise your own physical activity – and especially its results. No matter if your goal is to lose weight, improve your running speed and resistance, build muscles or just keep your body in shape, these pieces of equipment help you stay updated to your performance levels. There are a lot of types, categories, and styles of fitness tracking gadgets, but today we will look at four different models which are said to be big hits this year.
1. Clip-on: The Misfit Flash Link
This small and portable gadget supervises your daily activities and sleep as well. It shows the number of steps, traveled distance and burned calories. It also syncs with your smartphone and lets you control a lot of things, from the music you listen to the slide presentation you have to show at work. The gadget also allows you to check your actual daily progress against your pre-set daily activity goal.
2. Pocket Watch: The Omron Digital Pocket Pedometer
The Omron digital pocket pedometer comes with six tracking modes and is able to monitor track steps, aerobic steps, time, distance, calories and fat grams burned, among others. The best part is that it monitors your steps be them vertically or horizontally. It can store seven consecutive days of information in its memory, but it resets if you want to keep daily accurate track of your steps. The best part is that it doesn’t need special apps or specific types of smartphones to work with.
3. Wristband: The Fitbit Charge HR
The products under this brand are known for their quality and the Fitbit Charge HR is such an example. It can monitor heart rate, traveled distance, the number of calories burned and the number of floors climbed. It also tracks your workouts and your active minutes and steps. It monitors your sleep and it syncs with almost all smartphone models in existence.
4. Sports Watch: The Mio Alpha 2
We couldn’t leave the sports watches outside the fitness tracking gadgets category. The Mio Alpha 2 is a true wrist watch with added benefits: it reliably monitors your heart rate and it accurately tracks your daily casual activities and your workouts. You can have real-time data collected about your steps, pace, traveled distance and burned calories. Unfortunately, it works only with its special app, although it is compatible with different types of smartphones.
What types of fitness tracking gadgets do you use? Is your classic phone chronometer enough, or are you going to invest in activity monitoring smart devices this year?
