Benefits of Fitness Gadgets and Wearables. 1. Hands-Free Experience. Fitness gadgets and wearables are hands-free.

Meaning you can track your fitness and sleep experience without the hassle 2. Self-Awareness. Unless you know exactly how many. Most of the fitness gadgets and wearables lack annoying cords and are hands-free. This gives you a hassle-free experience and better tracking, both during fitness and sleep.

The hands-free feature will definitely improve your overall fitness experience. To be precise, technology is involved in almost every segment of our lives. And yes, technology is big in fitness too. That’s why we need to tell you about five benefits of wearable technology in fitness.

Progress monitoring. Wearable devices send data (statistics) to a device owned by a business to keep track of your progress. For example, if you want to keep track of your steps, sleep pattern and calorie. Fitness gadgets and wearables are hands-free.

Meaning you can track your fitness and sleep experience without the hassle of annoying cords, or holding something throughout your workout. Being hands-free improves your overall experience. Self-Awareness.

Gadgets like the Garmin Vivoactive HR help to track your heart rate. This is very useful when you’re trying to train in the 70 to 90 percent range of your maximum heart rate (MHR). You can calculate your MHR by subtracting your age from 220. For example, if you’re 30 years old, your maximum heart rate will be 190 beats per minute.

While it’s often said that wearable tech is not that accurate because of GPS limitations, when it comes to monitoring your heart rate, sleep and activity, these gadgets are pretty accurate. Gadgets like the Garmin Vivoactive HR help to track your heart rate. This is very useful when you’re trying to train in the 70 to 90 percent range of your maximum heart rate (MHR).

The advent of wearable technology revolutionaries’ in the health and fitness industry has numerous benefits to boast of –. Empowered Individuals. Wearable technology allows individuals to be in charge of their health by making use of the real-time data provided by smart devices. The Financial Benefits of Wearable Fitness Tracking Devices Wearable fitness tracking devices could offer financial benefits for employers and employees alike. Whether it is a wristband or a smartphone app, wearable healthcare tracking devices give consumers useful data to measure their wellness and progress toward their health goals.

Wearable technology provides us with the ability to monitor our fitness levels, track our location with GPS, and view text messages more quickly.

  • Top 10 Zone is one of the best creators for tech video compilations, i actually created my channel called cool tech gadgets and news to show even more latest tech gadgets and news, come check it out and i will always follow back!

  • I, among others I am sure, don’t want my smart watch to be like a toxic partner! I don’t want it to tell me when or how to drink or eat or walk or anything. My smartwatch use case is probably using it in my daily tasks instead of carrying a 6 inches smart phone.

  • Nice ����
    Hope some company wise up and make one that can be charged with Type C wire, so we dont have to carry a weird Crab charger to charge the watch, wireless charging is nice, but still need a simple direct charging

  • Hello guys do you really want to have a healthy and healthy fat-free body thanks to the possible methods and the fastest ever start now through this link:
    https://12e67ew7em2jyk9jpkpg-o8x1t.hop.clickbank.net/

  • The sensors are the same type, but they are made by different manufacturers and therefore the accuracy of each sensor is different. I think the strongest company will be the one the will succeed of creating a good eco system.

  • Great video Kait! What about infrared saunas like Sunlighten or Saunaspace? Obviously pricy, but many benefits. Curious to hear your thoughts!

  • I am interested about the red light therapy. Let us know if you notice any improvements. I am also interested in the full body red light. Thanks!

  • I have a bio strap. I was shocked how 2 glasses of wine impacts your sleep and recovery. Raising Resting HR and lowering your HR variability and lowering your O2 levels while you sleep. Very valuable tool.

  • You’re spot on with the smart scale and inaccuracies with lean muscle and body fat. I almost bought garmin scale like yours but I opted for the Nokia/withings version instead. The connectivity to phones and watches is nice as well. The body fat is way off. All the machines that use electric resistance to measure body fat are inaccurate. My scale reads sky high body fat. I’m 6’0 tall, 190lbs male with a six pack and it routinely says I’m between 21 and 24% body fat. Even the expensive taneeda scale at the gym measures the same way and gets the fat % wrong. Weight is very accurate. I’ve compared it to a much older digital scale and they match. I’ve also compared to an old fashioned analog scale. They’re all pretty accurate for weight.

  • If there is a future of wearables, it’s in health and fitness only. There should be more sensors added to see blood glucose proper blood pressure monitoring high lows not just pulse and others. That’s it, they need to stop wasting time with gimmicks. I’m still waiting for Apple Watch to enable ecg in my region so I can get it for my parents.

  • A beautiful girl living in Australia with a Canadian accent. You have been making some really practical videos without getting overly technical which is great!

  • One thing I always wanted for a smartwatch/wearables to have is additional security by becoming a 3rd if not 4th authentication tool. As an example, what if when you login to your Windows, iOS/Mac OS, or Android device, you’ll also receive a notification on your wearable to either allow the login to push through, input another set of pins or code, or put it a certain distance of the device to proceed. Isn’t that a useful feature?

  • a watch is good for telling the time and things, good to be able to set alarm and stopwatch, a smartwatch maybe add remote control for some functions for the phone and basic notifications, more is not a big deal. and the watch is good looking, comfortable on the wrist, not costing so much that I will have to worry about it. And not have to worry about it’s battery life. Some functions on the Apple Watch makes me don’t want to own it. The health stuff is okay, your phone can remind you for most things. And most people should learn to monitor on their own senses about their health, don’t waste one of the most powerful “compuster system” we are born with.

  • I remember people where gloom and do about wearables and smart watches as far as 3 years ago now I have noticed that almost everyone on the bus and train have smart watches on there wrist.

  • I love your video and your setup of your channel structure you inspire me to make my channel better just start out thank keep up the work

  • Do you still use that Oura ring? If so, can you share your experiences with it? If not, why not?

    Also… Don’t you use different glasses these days?

  • I can’t believe almost no tech outlets covered the new Garmin Vivomove hybrid watches. They seriously just upped the game for all smartwatches…it costs $500 for the luxe version tho ����

  • What about blood pressure monitoring? I’ve seen a few companies show this off as an optical sensor without the need for a pressurised cuff link around the wrist. Also there is research to suggest we may be able to do glucose monitoring without piercing the skin. Then there is body temperature monitoring, sweat salt level monitoring, UV monitoring, and even radiation monitoring. I think weave only just begun in the wearable market.

  • I just can’t bring myself to give the google AI overlords that much data about my health. My body tells me all those things automatically anyway, plus I find those things take you away from the natural signals your body sends. Very interested in red light therapy for Canadian winters though.

  • Yeah…I’ve been using the clunky orange uvex safety glasses…I wear prescription glasses so I have to have something fit over them. Wish “they” would make prescription blue blocking lenses��

  • I’d be interested in hearing an update about the Joovv light. It’s so pricey I balk at getting one but I’m really curious about the benefits particularly for my mom and her chronic back pain (help with water retention and the acne I just can’t seem to shake wouldn’t be bad for me either. If it really does what people claim it does). After all feeling good is priceless.

  • Hey kait I’m losing so much weight fast like in 1 week I lost 5lbs just switching to all meat is that normal?? My face is slimming and my belly I love it I want to go down but I’m losing so much so fast I never lost so much weight getting off fruit and veggies I had no idea it was making me fat

  • Take a Medical Grade ECG, Just by Touch, Anytime, Anywhere in only 15 seconds, send it your or our Doctors by Click of a Button, and within Minutes find out reason of your Chest Pain.

  • This is very useful video. Here is a lot of Health & Gadget thats i first seen. Wow amazing! Thank you to Video maker for creating this video. If u want to live well, everyone need to Health coverage. The most popular Health coverage service Is AIA in WHole USA.

  • Bioelectrical impedance, which is how scales and other home devices measure body fat, has a margin of error of up to ±10 points! That’s points, not %; so if the scale says you are 15% body fat, you could actually be anywhere between 5% and 25%!
    Bodpod is much better, but even that modality has a non-trivial margin of error (±3 to 5 points).
    I used to be a stickler for bf%, now I think of it as just a number that correlates w appearance and circumference measurements at a given weight ��

  • i present you the iplug! simply insert into your rectum and through our smartphone app it will measure everything you need to stay satisfied!

  • I enjoy your content Kait. You seem like a real genuine person. You’re my main inspiration for eating a more animal based type of diet. Keto/carnivore as you have called I guess. ��

  • I more or less agree that there probably won’t be that much more innovation but one could still see it very differently. Simple step tracking has been around for decades and for the longest time there was just that. The last few years have been pretty accelerated in that regard, with highly usable pulse, much better activity and sleep tracking as well as ECG. So in a way we are in the golden time right now.

  • Can the watch determine if am fapping? Am guessing that they should incorporate this motion movement in the watch algorithm cause that’s the only exercise I do and it gave me a health heart rate and remove my anxiety

  • I have a fitness watch (much smaller that yours) I got off eBay for next to nothing. Just an easy way to monitor a few things.
    I’m still extremely skeptical about red light therapy but I’ll keep my eye on the situation to see if it’s Real or Internet Science.

  • I absolutely love blue blockers. I have the yellow and red lenses buy Truedark. I have a red light therapy device, as well and it is by Truedark. It is a larger one comparable to the size of the joovv mini, but I got it for half price on sale

  • Been kinda tempted by my friends garmin stats haha!
    I’m not a big techy. BUT. This video info is also.. tempting = D
    Something about wearing electronics is also.. unappealing.
    I think I would have benefited from his a lot when I was sick, 
    & people with POTS measuring heart rate and sleep.. Hmmm

    Thanks for the video!

  • The youtube comments on the Engadget videos are always such a mess, I wonder why they even enable them. Jeez people, you are the absolute worst. Good solid video though.

  • Cute glasses! I have the Dave Asprey Tru Dark glasses and really like them. Have you ever tried the Dr Mercola grounding mat? I like to use that once in a while as well as the Bulletproof spiky sleep matt. If you can only get one get the spiky mat, it hurts so good. lol Also Salt lamp for your night light by bed and the Dr Berg stress tool. Body rollers are great too. Oh, and how about the Tom Brady anti inflamatory sleeping shirt? Wearing it now. Oh, the Lief heart rate variability monitor is great too and it has many educational levels built in and is a very precise tool for phone app that goes with it. Have not had Oura ring or heart math so if you already have those, not sur the Lief would add a lot more but on it’s own it is great.. You put this attatcjable rubber thing over your heart and it vibrates when you should be exhaling. Feels really cool. Great customer support too. Cheers Kait and hope you had a great time in Austin ��

  • #2 is talking about something called Body Boss, but is listed as “BionicGym.” #3 is saying it’s called Acto Fit, but it’s listed “QLIPP” which is #4 (and not titled) I’m not sure how easy/hard this fix is, but thought I’d let that be known.
