There are tons of new, revolutionary ways to track your fitness and health, from the various models of the Fitbit watch to the Apple Watch. Fitbands can make it super easy to make anyone extra motivated to reach their step goal or meet their calorie burn goal by the end of the day. Some fitbands may even come with the option to add friends and compete in daily or weekly challenges together for extra motivation!
With all this being said, it’s no wonder more and more people are sporting some sort of fitband and finding a new, fun way to stay active.
Is a fitband for me?
A fitband can be great for anyone who is looking to track their steps or how their body reacts to activity. Whether you’re someone who likes to head to the gym or work out at home, having a fitband on your person is a great way to keep track of your day. So, essentially, a fitband can be perfect for anyone!
Some of the best and most beneficial data a fitband can provide is your heart rate, especially when actively working out. A Fitbit will even tell you when you’ve reached peak fat-burning zone and peak cardio zone per your heart rate data. An Apple Watch can also monitor your BPM and has a Fitness+ subscription option so you can follow along with exercise videos (similarly to Fitbit’s premium subscription).
What’s the best option?
Aside from the Fitbit and Apple Watch, there’s Garmin, Huawei, Honor Band, Xiaomi, and many more. It really all depends on what you’re looking for – are you looking for something that won’t break the bank? Maybe something that is really just for tracking steps and nothing else? Or maybe you’re looking specifically for something where you can follow along with fitness videos. There are TONS of options priced at various rates with different features, so it’s best to do your full research before buying one.
Accountability is key
Fitbands are becoming the hottest way to get toned, fit, and healthy. By providing helpful data for your overall activity, internal health, and even sleep, you can better manage and reach your health goals – because it keeps you accountable. Learning this data can be a tremendous help with long-term success, whether you’re a professional athlete in training mode or just trying to tone up a bit at home. You no longer need to second guess if your workout was intense enough or if you were in the cardio zone during your workout – because your fitband will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know.
