Step It Up!
Have you seen the newest fashion accessory? Bracelet-style fitness trackers that log your day and night activity.
How many steps do you take each day? How many calories do you burn? How long (and how well) do you sleep?
Your fitness tracker can tell you.
This is a booming business. Dozens of wearable tracking devices are out there; each with distinctive styles and features.
Do they work? Yes, they track and report activity.
Will they work for you? Only if you use them.
And they are pretty simple to use.
- Keep the battery charged.
- Check the displayed information every day (either on the bracelet screen or on the accompanying computer app or website).
- Set realistic goals.
- Keep moving.
- Wear it!
Below are a few links to articles that describe, review, and rate some — but not all — of the trackers out there. Are you ready to “step” up?
