Let's face it exercise can be tough and to see real results you have to keep at it consistently and remain disciplined which isn't easy with all the distractions and comforts that modern living has presented us with. If you've tried your hand at maintaining your fitness, you will know exactly how easily motivation can dwindle especially when you do not see the results you want or you start strong, eventually becoming a stop starter, then eventually stopping altogether.
Well until the next burst of motivation hits. So how can we avoid this sort of stop-start fitness regime? Well, these days a little technology can go a long way, and fitness watches have become quite the must-have accessory for fitness enthusiast of a variety of different sporting codes and disciplines from running to swimming and more.
1. Firstly it's a Great New Toy to try out!
We all love a new gadget or toy, and a fitness watch is no different. Getting one will firstly get you in the mood to obviously try it out a few times, make use of all its features and see what you paid for, which is more than enough motivation to get your running shoes out of the closet on on your feet more than once a week.
2. It keeps track of your fitness goals
Obviously, it's main unique selling point is its ability to track your progress like the distance you cover, time, your speeds and such. Having these benchmark metrics can help you gauge how far you need to push yourself to improve in the beginning and what you are capable of reaching and maintaining once you've fully settled into a fitness routine. It's also awesome for setting micro-goals and tracking your achievements along the way to full fitness.
3. It monitors your heart rate
Checking whether you’re in the correct heart rate zone in relaxed and active states and comparing with your weight on the scale after a few weeks can determine whether or not you’re on the right track to your desired weight.
4. It lets you know if you have had enough sleep or not
Gone are the days of tracking the quality of your sleep meant sleeping in a lab with wires hooked up to you to determine whether you were in REM or NREM sleep; now fitness trackers can easily determine the quality of your sleep based on your movement during sleep.
Sleep is an instrumental determinate in the quality of your health and lifestyle and ensuring you get at least 3 full cycles of sleep in a night is pivotal to maintaining the energy you need throughout your day while giving your brain ample time to store and process everything that’s happened in the day prior!
5. When you are out on the road, it reminds you to drink at regular intervals
A Smartwatch isn't just about getting you to sweat more it also helps remind you that you need to replenish what you've lost by reminding you at regular intervals to stay hydrated you can get the most out of your body and your workout by avoiding dehydration.
6. It has an alarm to alert you to any event
The only person you’re truly competing against is yourself! Fitness trackers track your goals and your progress, psychologically encouraging you to walk more steps than you did yesterday; to run faster than you did yesterday; to sustain that peak heart rate for just a little longer for that intense interval training. Research shows that wearing fitness trackers – even if it’s just a basic pedometer! – can increase a user’s activity levels by 30 percent!
7. You can even take photo's of the scenery while out on the roadJust because you're breaking a sweat doesn't mean you can't take the time to enjoy the surroundings. Smart watches let you snap photos easily while on the go to sync to your mobile or desktop or upload to your social accounts.
8. Never miss a call or notification, for those of you who never hear phones.
For many, notifications are the main reason you'd buy a smartwatch. The ease of having them sent to your wrist and being able to identify their importance without removing your phone from a pocket or bag is invaluable. It simplifies your life, and it saves time - and time is important.
