What Is Fitbit, And Why It Is Your Fitness Companion
Technology is improving by leaps and bounds. You blink your eyes and there is something brand new that is invented or a newer version of something that's been popular all this while. One such piece of smart technology is the Fitbit, a smart device with one aim – making you healthy. So what exactly is Fitbit? Let us see.
Fitbit is a fitness product, a physical activity tracker first developed in California, USA. This device is to be worn on the body, either in the form of wrist bands or clips that can be pinned to your clothes on a daily basis through the day, even while sleeping. This is so that it can constantly monitor your daily physical activity, and motivate you to get busy and get healthy.
The device measures your heart rate, the amount of steps you take, if you are walking, cycling, or driving, your calorie intake, the amount of calories you are burning, your sleep patterns, etc.
You have to set a fitness goal for yourself in this device; say your goal is to walk 10,000 steps every day, so what the smart device does is, it tells you exactly how many steps you are taking. And if at the end of the day, you haven't achieved your target, the device serves a reminder to you that you haven't achieved your goal and that you are not taking your health seriously. Conversely, when you do achieve your daily goal, the device sends out a loud vibration to notify you about the same. This is, kind of, also its way of congratulating you on an objective achieved, if you think of it that way.
All the data that Fitbit creates on a daily basis is synced onto your computer system, where it is possible for you to compare one day with another. It also gives you all sorts of graphs, including monthly analytics showing you your progress through the month.
So, basically, Fitbit and other similar devices out there serve as your very own through-the-day fitness companion, pushing you to meet your health goals and making you want to live healthier.
So, are you ready to get fit with Fitbit?
