Consider me late (ok, very.) to the convo on the “activity tracker”… I just couldn’t get my head around the way they looked. I.e. ugly. But, progress is being made on the aesthetic front so let’s talk about that.
Wearing it gives me the mental re-think to take the stairs or to park in the furthest spot in the lot… I’ll even sneak in a late night walk to get my count up. I especially LOVE the sleep monitor, it details your night via the 4 phases of sleep; light, deep, REM, and even those pesky wake ups!
Alas, Yves, there is an even better looking device out; the MIRA. Designed for the elite of style-minded users, this modern piece has an interchangeable wrist “cuff” offered in a variety of finishes, (think ROSE GOLD!) into which you pop a dark, oval “gem-styled” monitor that keeps you in-the-know. Downside; it’s limited to reading only steps and calories, no heart rate, sleep or fitness suggestion. But hey, it looks awesome!
Never to be a hardcore user of this tech genre, I do find it engaging to track my daily movement. It’s a small thrill when I’ve eeeeked past my goal and a kick in the ass when I haven’t.
