It’s that time of year, and new year’s resolutions are on the top of everyone's mind! The most common goal? To get fit by exercising more, which can start with tracking your fitness activities while monitoring your progress and results.
To better understand your health, here are five digital apps and devices that can keep you digitally connected to your activity progress and connect directly to your VITALL account for real-time data tracking.
So grab your mat, your running shoes, jump on that bike... and let’s go!
From smartwatches to trackers, Fitbit has a whole host of different products to track your movement, steps, and overall health. You can see your daily progress in realtime, as well as trends over time, monitor your sleep and heart rate, and even connect with other Fitbit-ers to help you stay motivated.
Fitbit’s main goal is to keep you moving and put your overall health at the forefront.
With Garmin, you can track any sports activity - golfing, swimming, hiking, cycling, running, and more - with products that are made to keep up with the lifestyle you’ve chosen. Garmin watches, bat swing sensors, GPSs, and even golf club trackers are all designed to improve your game. While the Fitbit encourages you to move, Garmin products are designed to track and help you fine-tune your skills.
Another product similar to Garmin, Polar offers products like smartwatches and heart rate sensors designed to take your training to the next level. Polar is “like having a personal trainer on your wrist” and is perfect for those seeking to tackle a triathlon, step up their cross-training, and prepare for more intense sports.
If you’re looking for a hardcore fitness push, Polar will be your best friend.
Designed by athletes for athletes, Strava is a phone app that’s used most by cyclists and runners, as it uses GPS data to track progress. Strava also incorporates social network features so you can share and connect with other athletes around the world.
The best part about Strava is that most features are free, meaning it’s a great app to get you started before investing in other devices like Fitbit or Garmin.
For those with diabetes who want to better manage their health, iGlucose is a complete care system that gives you immediate results and a real-time data dashboard. iGlucose allows you to double-check that your health is optimal before starting any physical activity.
Each of these apps and more sync to your VITALL account so that you’re able to monitor your health and wellness in a holistic fashion. And - what better time to start moving than now. Here’s to a healthy new year and keeping your fitness resolutions!
