Working out? Getting fit? Trying to lose weight? Let technology help you with your efforts! The same science that has put a man on the Moon is today working for you, helping you not only get leaner, but also be healthier and fitter. Here are three of the most useful gadgets for your workout
that can help you in your quest for a better, healthier life.
While most people consider them little more than pocket-sized entertainment centers, smartphones can do way more than that. With an array of sensors, they can detect your speed and elevation, report the distance you have ran and the (approximate) number of steps you have taken. Smartphones are also helpful beyond that, though – they are able to play music. Research has shown that listening to music while jogging, running, or working out can help athletes feel less pain, be distracted, and overall perform better.
Smartphones are helpful in keeping your body fit, but they are also invaluable for a sound mind. They are, indeed, an entertainment center, allowing you to be distracted from the daily madness what we call life. If only for a few minutes at a time. Many people love to spend their time playing casual games on their phones – games like the slot machines you can find at the Royal Vegas Casino. The Royal Vegas has an amazing collection of slots available for mobile play, offering its users a quick, accessible way to be distracted on the go. Whether they choose to play them for fun, or for real, slot machines help Royal Vegas players all over the world escape the madness for a while.
Smartwatches / Fitness Bands
Wearable devices, such as the smartwatches and fitness bands popular today, have their own set of sensors that help you in your quest for fitness. Aside from your speed and location, they can measure your heart rate, correlate it with the rest of the data they gather, and tell you how efficient your fitness routine is. They also track your sleep, often helping you find the cause of feeling exhausted all day long.
The number of connected devices helping you get fit and healthy is continuously growing. Among them, you can already find Wi-Fi scales, smart skin patches to measure your UV exposure, smart beds that track your sleep and adjust their parameters to your needs, sports bras with track your activity, pocket-sized pulse oximeters, even smart water bottles that can add a variety of nutrients, vitamins, and trace elements to your water based on your level of activity. All this is already available, and the future will bring even more smart devices that will help us be fitter, healthier, and happier in the long run.
