The Internet is no longer something that you browse on your PC to do research, online banking or to buy something from an eCommerce shop. Now, the Internet can be used to help you keep track of, and manage, other aspects of your daily life. For example, think about Alexa. If you fit sensors to your windows, which are linked to her, you can ask Alexa to check if these are closed when you’re not at home.
The wearable fitness technology market is another example of how the Internet of Things (IoT)-connected devices help you in your life. However, the challenge rears its head when you need to choose a device. From Apple to Fitbit, Garmin and Samsung, these wearable fitness technology devices all do pretty much the same thing. But which one is the best to choose?
In this article, we’ll have a look at some of the bestsellers.
Fitbit Charge 2
Topping the list is the Fitbit Charge 2. Amazon customers rate is number one in the following categories:
- Cycling Accessories
- Heart Rate Monitors
With its slim design, this piece of wearable fitness technology allows you to monitor your heart rate on an automatic and continuous basis. In addition, the Fitbit Charge 2 allows you to see how many calories you burn during a particular exercise.
As it has a connected GPS, this watch allows you to track your pace and distance as you exercise.
Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS Smartwatch
Next on the list is the Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS Smartwatch. This will appeal to people who like chunkier watches – but don’t let its boxy appearance fool you. While indeed being chunky, this watch is incredibly slim.
The Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS Smartwatch is incredibly popular as it offers users the option of tracking for a variety of sports. For example, its colour touchscreen is able to track swimming, running, cycling as well as golfing. As it is billed as a smartwatch, you can link it with your smartphone to still receive notifications even when you’re swimming laps in the pool.
Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker
Going again to Fitbit, number three on our list is the Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker. This fitness tracker can actually sense when you’re exercising, so there’s no need for any manual programming.
Other Fitbit models allow you to track your sleep and be woken up with a gently vibrating alarm – rather than being jarred awake by a loud alarm on your cellphone.
Fitbit Blaze Fitness Watch
This watch is the number one bestseller in the men’s smartwatches category. Available in black and silver, you can pop the face of the Blaze out and change out the straps.
Fitness smartwatches shouldn’t just be looked at as something there to tell you off if you’re not exercising hard enough, they should have other functions too, and can even be used to enjoy online gambling in Nigeria. Plus, they should be looked at as a way of motivating yourself to do better than your previous workout. If you have gym buddies who also have fitness smartwatches, you can use the data from the watches to motivate each other and get in shape at the same time!
