Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Fitness Tracker?

Without understanding or properly utilizing the many things a fitness  tracker can monitor, you’re essentially paying for a glorified wall  clock.


The step-counting function on a fitness tracker includes all movement from walking to the bathroom to running a challenging marathon.

Your fitness tracker is using information you’ve given it combined with heart rate to generate an estimate on how many calories you’ve burned doing an activity.

Depending on the fitness tracker, you’ll likely be able to view a variety of sleep stats including restlessness and if you’re getting  light or deep sleep.

When working out, you want to see your heart rate getting high, because  it shows you’re exerting yourself and can help long-term with blood pressure control.
