As I was finishing up a workout a few Sundays ago, I got off the treadmill feeling pretty accomplished only to realize I wasn’t wearing my Fitbit. ARG! I immediately felt defeated. Now having no record I completed a workout, it’s like it never even happened! This is the effect wearable technology has on us. It gives us a feeling of accomplishment with the ability to visually see the work we have achieved in an exercise bout or in a day’s time. It gives us motivation and a basis for comparison against the day before or the week before, pushing us to work a little harder, and on that Sunday it made me realize the importance of having the ability to track the work I had done. But for all of these motivational factors, just how accurate is your smart watch? When it tells you your peak heart rate was 174 bpm, was it? Did you actually get 12,000 steps in yesterday, like it said you did? What about those 2,200 calories burned? Maybe the bigger question is, does it really matter? The answer is yes...and no.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
