Wrist Bands And Fit­ness Goals

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

One of the most com­mon uses of wear­able tech­nol­ogy will be ac­tiv­ity track­ers. They store data about you and an­a­lyse it us­ing smart­phone apps. The Nike Fuel Band, Jaw­bone Up and Fit­bit Flex are be­com­ing pop­u­lar in the US and other coun­tries. The de­vices typ­i­cally track you phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and tell you if you are reach­ing your goals. The Up for in­stance lets users add food and drink track­ing as well as to log in their moods. Th­ese also come with built-in alarms to wake you up and sen­sors that are good enough to gauge how much sleep you have had. Wear it for a cou­ple of months and you will have so much data about your­self that you will un­der­stand how to bal­ance daily rou­tines for a healthy life­style. The de­vices, which con­nect to smart­phones or tablets through Blue­tooth, also let you share your achieve­ments to so­cial net­work­ing site. Some other tech bracelets are able to flash smart­phone no­ti­fi­ca­tions.
