Exploding onto the market in 2014, wearable technology has had its hits and misses. Wearable technology, or wearable tech, comprises of such things as smart watches which link to your phone and headsets for gaming however one strand of wearable tech that isn’t disappearing any time soon is the fitness tracker. Used to keep a record of fitness and health, users can input information such as the food they’ve consumed and the exercise or movements they’ve done and the device feeds back a result of calories burned and other goals relating to weight and fitness and so on. You can purchase these fitness trackers for under £50 and they are fantastic for many reasons.

If you have a goal you’re working towards, there’s no excuse as to why you fell off the wagon, so to speak. The device is right there on your wrist and you have access to it twenty-four hours a day. The device also provides a visual report so you can see just how you’re doing and gives you the opportunity to adapt your routine if needs be. Wearing a fitness tracker also cuts out the unnecessary messing around trying to figure out where it is that you are going wrong. Say for example you’re doing everything right but you just can’t seem to lose weight, the tracker will show you exactly what it is that needs changing. There is no guess work. It’s quicker than doing it all yourself.

They’re not obtrusive either. It’s not like you have lots to faff around with regarding your device. Once it’s set up, you’re good to go and because they’re small, it fits just like a watch or something similar. You can even wear some clipped to your waist under your work jacket for example. They’re usually quite a minimal design as manufacturers know that these devices are worn usually where they are able to be seen such as the wrist.

They’re great for keeping you going until your next gym session or meeting with a personal trainer, for instance. They’re constant, they’re with you all day so there’s no need to worry about forgetting to input some info because the device wasn’t to hand. Working with a personal trainer can be incredible but obviously the sessions aren’t daily. Fitness trackers are great for boosting your confidence and enthusiasm, just as a personal trainer would.
