Fit­ness is My Wit­ness

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE - HWM

You wouldn’t want your rig­or­ous fit­ness rou­tines to be brought to an abrupt halt just be­cause of a lit­tle driz­zle now, would you? So, the higher the wa­ter re­sis­tance rat­ing your fit­ness tracker has, the less you’ll have to worry about one of na­ture’s el­e­ments ru­in­ing your stride. Suf­fice to say, a good fit­ness tracker is also one that comes with an ac­com­pa­ny­ing mo­bile app. Not just any oblig­a­tory or to­ken app though, but one that fea­tures a user-friendly in­ter­face, de­tailed in­sights on your fit­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, and most im­por­tantly, is able to work with­out a hitch. If you take your fit­ness met­rics very se­ri­ously, it would prob­a­bly be best for you to in­vest in a fit­ness tracker that has a heart rate mon­i­tor – re­gard­less of whether it’s built into the tracker it­self, or avail­able as a sep­a­rate ac­ces­sory. The pres­ence of a heart rate mon­i­tor also meant that it can cal­cu­late cer­tain fit­ness met­rics – such as the amount of calo­ries you’ve burnt – more pre­cisely. The proverb of ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ is one that’s equally rel­e­vant to fit­ness track­ers. There’s ab­so­lutely no fun in hav­ing a dic­ta­tor of a fit­ness tracker that’s more con­cerned about whip­ping you into shape, than keep­ing you up­dated with your so­cial life. Be­sides, your fit­ness tracker would be tremen­dously more ver­sa­tile and prac­ti­cal if it could dis­play your phone’s no­ti­fi­ca­tions. With re­gards to the bat­tery life of fit­ness track­ers, a good rule of thumb is that you shouldn’t need to charge it more than once a week with mod­er­ate use. Any­thing more than that, and it will feel like a chore – and we’re sure you don’t need any more of that in your life. The good news is, most fit­ness track­ers these days are able to last for at least a week be­fore need­ing a recharge.
