These days, getting fit conjures images of hard-ass fitness junkies screaming at you to carry a tire up a sand dune, or simply reminds you of the overpriced (and underused) gym membership you bought as a new year’s resolution.
But thanks to the Fitbit One, now we can all carry a personal trainer, dietician, lifestyle coach and motivational guru with us 24/7. Clip it to your pocket or belt and it logs all of your daily activity. The advanced accelerometer tracks the steps you’ve taken, stairs you’ve climbed, and calories you’ve burned; it’ll even monitor your sleep patterns!
Improved clip stays securely fastened
But the real magic happens when you upload all of this data. Saved on your private account, you can track your activity over days, weeks and months. Fill in your personal details and it’ll help you to work out your BMI, set fitness goals and even manage your diet. Keep it updated with the meals and snacks you’ve eaten and it’ll give you up-to-the-minute diet and exercise advice, helping you reach your goals.
Available in Black or Burgundy
The Fitbit One has a brand new App and is easily used on your mobile device, so you don’t even need a computer. It will also synchronise with similar apps and programs that you use, like MyfitnessPal, RunKeeper, Lose It!, Endomondo and Microsoft Health Vault. Fitbit now even has its own Android App, Apple-bashers rejoice!
So what are you weighting (sorry) for? For the same cost as a few hours with a fitness instructor, you could have access to all the advice you need to reach your ideal fitness and stay there.
