The innovative Jawbone UP24 is a bracelet that monitors your workouts, how you sleep and even tracks your diet through the downloadable app that comes with it. It doesn’t come with a screen, so you have to use the app, but Bluetooth makes sure it’s always connected to your phone for current updates.
Nike is always a good bet for the best sports and exercise footwear. The Nike TR1+ Trainers is another example of combining technology with the best brands to get an amazing way to monitor your workout.
These shoes contain sensors in the sole of the shoes which react to pressure from your foot’s toe, ball and heel. You’ll receive measurements about movement and weight spread on a downloadable app and be able to get real-time feedback on your body’s posture and movements.
Withings Smart Body Analyser keeps you motivated by analyzing your weight loss so it’s not as demoralizing as getting on the weight scales. Many people simply give up when the scales show weight gain (or same weight) after working so hard to lose it.
The Smart Body Analyser connects to your home WiFi network and provides more information than a simple number. You’ll be able to measure your heart rate, ambient temperature, body fat and even air quality to instantly see how your exercise performance is affecting your body.
This app will become the focal point of your workout regimen and does so much more than measure your workout routine.
You’ll also receive info from sleep trackers, your fitness bracelets and blood pressure through the app. Having all of the information in one central app helps you gain insight into how your body works.
Nike and Adidas have produced games to work with the Xbox Kinect through motion sensors.
You’ll need an Xbox console to play the games, but you’ll have the added benefit of the motion sensors to plan your fitness regimen and receive feedback on your performance. It’s a fun and easy way to exercise in your own environment.
Experiment and do some online research to find a technological innovation that would be fun and informative for you to use.
There are so many now available that you shouldn’t have any trouble choosing.
