Health Hacks For Your Fitness Tracker
Keeping track of your daily, weekly and even monthly movements is as easy as checking the time, thanks to the latest wearable tech innovation.
TomTom shows you how you can use your wearable device to hack your own health, prevent life-threatening illnesses as much as possible and save money on doctors’ visits while you’re at it.
Monitor your heart rate
Being able to measure your heart rate throughout the day isn’t just a great tool to have during high-intensity exercise – it’s also a good indication of illness, letting you know when your body is taking strain and encouraging you to take action before a trip to the doctor becomes necessary.
Make sure you’re getting enough sleep
Considering that we spend a third of our lives sleeping, the importance of a good night’s rest to overall health and wellbeing goes without saying. Sleep deprivation can cause memory problems, depression, an increase in pain perception and a weaker immune system, which can easily be prevented or managed simply by tracking your sleep using a fitness tracker.
Count your steps toward a healthier lifestyle
Not only are step counters a great motivational tool to promote physical activity and fitness awareness, they can also assist with stress relief, lowering blood pressure and stimulating bone density improvements simply by encouraging you to walk more.
Increasing cardiovascular activity is a great way to build a stronger heart and lungs, and is particularly beneficial for those with high cholesterol and blood pressure. Using a fitness device to monitor the number of calories burned in a day can help anyone keep track of their cardio activity.
Know your body inside out
Understanding body composition is a great way to help determine the state of your overall health and wellbeing, which promotes weight loss, improved heart health and an overall better quality of life. Having this valuable information on hand puts you in control of your body, helping you maintain an ideal Body Mass Index and in so doing manage blood pressure levels, reduce joint, hip and back pain, improve blood circulation and even improve glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.
Get in shape, improve your fitness and keep your health in check with the help of one stylish device!
