Fitness and Activity Trackers - Tools For a Healthy You

"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body. It is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity" ~ John F. Kennedy.

Having a healthy body is considered as one of the most important goals that everyone should achieve. With all the food choices that are readily available in the market today, it can sometimes be difficult to choose the ones that are good for our health. We tend to compensate the eating of unhealthy food to exercise and burn those calories.
Being physically fit could be achieved by exercising regularly and keeping track of our body measurements. Technology has come a long way -- from the basic analog pedometer to the more advanced fitness trackers. Nowadays, different companies are offering a wide range of wearables that would be able to help and guide us in achieving our fitness goals. Aside from having the basic feature of counting steps, most of them can even track the calories that you have burned. Your heart rate and the distance that you have covered during your run or swim can also be tracked. Most of these fitness trackers are also sweat and water resistant up to certain depths. These wearables could also monitor your sleep cycle and even give you a nudge when you're seated for too long.
Most of these wearables also come with downloadable apps which you could use to pair and integrate with your iPhone or Android smartphone. Thru these apps, you could monitor and track your fitness progress, set new goals and even share your fitness data to your friends. Syncing of messages from your smartphone and call notifications are a few additional features of some apps.
With the variety of available wearables being offered by different companies like Apple, Fitbit, Jawbone, Xiaomi and other tech companies, it's still up to you to decide on which product best suites your need.
