Top fitness technology trends
Wearable technology continued to rank as the most popular fitness trend for 2017, so keep an eye on updates from companies that offer smart watches, heartrate monitors, GPS devices and activity trackers.
If you are a serious runner, here is a wearable you don’t have to worry about losing: Under Armour Gemini 3 RE smart shoes have fitness trackers inside the soles. The tracker measures how ready your body is to run with a pre-run jump test, records running metrics and has Bluetooth connectivity to save your data to an app.
Fitbit is continuously updating its wrist-wear options, offering a slimmer design and also shifting focus in the Alta HR, which is a sleep tracker. It analyses your heart rate variability to estimate how much time you spend awake and in different sleep stages, allowing you to improve your sleep.
