If you could describe this past summer in the healthy living world in a couple of words it would be: Fitness Tracker. Man have they been HOT! There’s not a lot of places you can go anymore without seeing them on peoples arms. I love it. Seeing people take notice to their own lifestyle and making changes. High five folks!
For the past month and a half I have been wearing a brand new fitness tracker from the company Runtastic. It is called “Orbit.”
Of course when I first opened the box I thought it was adorable. It came with two bands (black and blue) and a pedometer wearing option.
I immediately put “the brains of the operation” in the black band where it has stayed ever since. I plan on trying out the pedometer type option soon but wearing it on my wrist is just so easy and fun.
PS: The bands come in other colors as well. So please feel free to match it with your outfit if you are stylish.
This fitness tracker tracks so much fun data. I’m going to share with you some of my favorites though in more detail!
Sleep- Obviously you can look at the clock and see what time you go to sleep and what time you wake up but this feature takes one less calculation off your mind (I mean really, who does math anymore when you have The Google). It also tracks your sleep efficiency.
Waterproof- You never have to take this band off (okay, that’s a lie you do have to charge it). When it is charged though you can wear it in the shower, in the pool, everywhere because it is waterproof!
Vibration Alert- One of my biggest problems is sitting too much. I’m constantly sitting at work. When I’m sitting too much the Orbit vibrates telling me to get my booty up and get moving! I love this feature because I really do get up and take a quick little walk.
The Orbit hooks up to an app through bluetooth, which is one feature I also absolutely love. I can get the easy quick details on my wrist but if I want to get them in more detail I can just look on my phone (which is also always by my side).
I love the idea of fitness trackers. I think that it is important to be aware of how much sleep you are getting, how many steps you are taking, how many calories you are burning and more. Knowing more about how your body works and your daily routine will help you live a healthier lifestyle and that is what it is all about. Living a better lifestyle… leads to living a healthier, happier life.
