& Wearable Tech
In the past year I’ve become very involved in my personal health and fitness. Turns out you feel better when you take care of yourself. As a kid I always thought the phrase “you are what you eat” meant turning orange if I ate too many carrots. I’ve upped my carrot consumption and I’m proud to report I am not orange.
To help me along the way and keep track of my progress I bought a handy little piece of wearable tech called a FitBit. In its simplest form the FitBit is a glorified pedometer, but it does so much more than count steps like the “toy” you got in a box of Frosted Flakes. The FitBit has the ability to track your steps, flights of stairs climbed, water consumed, calories in and out, distance traveled and even your sleep. There are many other pedometer products available, you may be familiar with the popular Nike Fuel Band, but I chose the FitBit One because you don’t have to wear it on your wrist (I hate wearing watches).
