Are Fitness Trackers Worth The Money?

If you are wondering whether wearable fitness trackers are worth the money, you might have come across a few of them. Initially, people used to wear smartwatches as fitness trackers. However, today we can use our smartphones for this purpose. Some people even use wristbands to track any fitness-related metric.

Therefore, it is really necessary to evaluate whether fitness trackers are worth your hard-earned money or otherwise.

Top Reasons Fitness Trackers Are Worth The Money

Behind each and every purchase we make, we always have a need or purpose. Herein, in our case, you’ll need a fitness tracker for different purposes. And the major question here is; does fulfilling these purposes make fitness trackers a good buy?

Let’s see:

1. Counting your steps

A fitness tracker can count the steps on your behalf. It’s seemingly not possible for people to count their steps while running for a long time. Herein, these devices are making the impossible, possible.
Every fitness tracker has an accelerometer which helps in measuring the changes in speed and direction. Through this feature, the tracker can accurately count the number of steps you make and also take measurements of your movement.

2. Measuring other movements

There are other sensors in the fitness tracker that enable it to track your movements. The sensor works with the gyroscope to figure out if you are sitting, lying down or standing. On the other hand, there is a barometer which determines the atmospheric pressure and altitude as well as measuring the number of stairs you have climbed.

With the presence of a tiny GPS on the fitness tracker, you can easily track your location or record your route while riding or trekking.

3. Checking your health status

The heart monitor found in most of the trackers is designed to check your pulse when working out or at rest. Other monitors can also detect the temperature of your skin and then combine all data to tell you how hard you are working out.

LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR review

LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR review

I’ve always been a very health oriented person and I’ve always watched what I eat, took regular exercise and maintained what I always thought of as a healthy lifestyle. However, over the last few years I’ve noticed that I’m not as fit as I once was, or should I say as fit as the people in my social circle. For some reason, most of my friends seem to be fitter, sleeker and in more control of their day to day fitness levels then I have been. I decided that I must be doing something wrong and after much deliberation decided to ask my friend Sarah her secret and where I was going wrong. She told me a fact that truly shocked and surprised me. Sarah told me that the secret to her success was a fitness tracker.
I actually could relate to that, as I remember my big breakthrough in health, was when I started to use Garmin vivosmart (the first generation, already discontinued; now replaced with Garmin vivosmart HR). It did bring me the discipline in regular exercises as well as a trackable monitoring of my health-way progress.

Why choose the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR

I still love Garmin, but I also reach to other alternatives. Often because of pricing, but lately as well because the quality of the “cheaper end devices” is amazingly good. 
Many folks say that they use the fitness tracker app on their mobile phones and that’s enough for them. Well, they usually use it during their weekend walks on not regular bases. I have to say I do enjoy independent unit which is always on me and can be used while I live in tropical countries, especially during rainy seasons, when I get unexpectedly soaked during my walks. 
My friend Sarah shares my opinion. Also, she has a fitness tracker called LETSCOM. At first, I have to say, I wasn’t sure if I’ve never heard of it before. When I asked her to show me, that’s when she held out her arm and showed me the sleek and stylish looking Fitness Tracker HR (heart-rate) LETSCOM.

Huawei Watch 2 Review

Review on GPS Smartwatch – Huawei Watch 2

Huawei Watch 2

GPS Smartwatch – Huawei Watch 2

The Huawei Watch 2 (link to Huawei Watch 2 on Amazon) promises to stand out and make a difference to the wide range of fitness-focused smartwatches on the market in 2017. Our Huawei Watch 2 review aims to show you what to expect from the second generation smartwatch designed and manufactured by Huawei.

The gadget has been announced by Huawei on Sunday, 26 February 2017. While the first generation of the Huawei smartwatch was targeted to the fashion conscious, the second generation focuses more on fitness and exercise.

Design

When it comes to design, the Huawei Watch 2’s Sports variant is distancing from the fashion-focused original Huawei Watch. That doesn’t mean that the Huawei Watch 2 is not an attractive wearable gadget. However, the product features a generic sporty smartwatch design instead of the traditional watch’s silver stainless steel body. The Huawei Watch 2 comes with a double chrome design and a plastic body.

The circular display is fairly large at 1.2-inch. With a height of 12.6 mm and only one case sized 45 mm available, it may look a bit awkward and bulky on smaller wrists. At 57 g, the Huawei Watch 2 is quite heavy compared to the second-generation Apple Watch that comes at 45 g.

According to Huawei, the ceramic bezel used on its second generation smartwatch is six times harder than stainless steel. While still being relatively lightweight, the ceramic bezel ensures that the sporty gadget is resistant to abrasion. The mirror-finish bezel is also quite resistant to scratches.

The Huawei Watch 2 provides a comfortable fit around the wrist, as its lugs are lower than other smartwatch models on the market. This also provides better stability during heart rate monitoring.Huawei Watch 2
