There are lots of things that hold us back from having the health and fitness levels we can only dream about; not enough time, lack of motivation, stress, poor organization and simply not knowing what needs to be done in order to achieve the desired results. Luckily, the smartwatch was invented to resolve all of these issues!
The best thing about smartwatches is that you can easily transfer your daily biostats to your computer or an online health journal by using its wireless technology. It can communicate with the other devices and computers such as sensors, wireless headsets, or devices enabled with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or GPS.There are lots of different smartwatches out there so their abilities will vary. Here is just a taste of how to get in the best shape you have ever been in, using a smartwatch as your personal trainer…
Track your run
Start your morning with a light jogging and feed your path into the Smartwatch and it will show you the running time taken, calories burnt, your running speed and elevation stats on the screen. What’s even better is that you don’t need to take your phone for a run, you can listen to music from your smartwatch with wireless earphones. A smartwatch with SIM also means you can take calls while running – now that’s multi-tasking at its finest!
Ditch the stress
Don’t over exhaust yourself in training with the help of heart rate monitoring feature of this Smartwatch. It will tell you your heart rate reading in real time so you can stop when you think that you are overdoing the exercise. You can also use this to monitor stress levels. Stress is not only very bad for your health it can also stress can take you off course as while you are stressed you cannot think straight thus resulting in over eating or skipping plans to exercise.
Your smartwatch will tell you about your daily activities which we generally don’t count as exercise or calorie burner like counting our number of steps, distance covered while walking, calories burnt during the day etc. Just being aware of this can make you strive to do better each day. You can also compare your stats to other friends with fitness bands or smartwatches – enhancing the power of competitiveness can drive you towards your goals much faster.
Move it to lose it
Set your smartwatch sedentary reminder so it reminds you to get up and move around regularly; go for a walk, do some stretches or run up and down a flight of stairs – every calorie burnt counts! Try these exercises you can do without even leaving your desk.
Yes it matters because a sound sleep can do wonders for your health and improve your performance. Wear your Smartwatch while sleep to know the quality and quantity of your sleep. In addition, you can check your weekly sleep graph to know how much your lifestyle is affecting your health by interfering with your sleep.
These are just few examples of how you can stay focused to reach your targets. So, what are you waiting for? Just grab a good quality Smartwatch and improve your fitness routine!
