High tech is changing the world and that includes how consumers approach fitness. In many ways, tech is drawing people into a healthy lifestyle that otherwise might not engage. What is some of the hottest fitness tech out there today?
If you target is body fat during your workouts than put the Sculpt Scanner on your wishlist. As the name suggests, the Sculpt Scanner scans your body to measure fat percentage both overall and locally. It also measures the quality and strength of your muscles.
You purchase the scanning device and it pairs with an app. The Sculpt app takes the data from the device and uses it to create tailored workouts.
Even water bottles are smart these days. The Ozmo Active smart bottle syncs with a mobile app to ensure you are staying properly hydrated. It tracks not just water but your favorite drinks, too. When you forget to drink your water, the app sends you a friendly reminder. It will even vibrate if it has been a while since you took a sip. It has Bluetooth connectivity and a USB rechargeable battery.
Activ5 is a combination device and app workout system. You apply force to the device to simulate different exercises like the chest fly or rows. They even have a program for Pilates yoga positions. The device measures how much force you are exerting and sends that information to the app.
The workouts come in five-minute segments and you do as many as you want during the day. It’s a clever choice for someone that is hesitant to do strength training.
MyFitnessPal is more of a movement than just a tech app. The brand offers both fitness tracking apps and a calorie counter. It is intuitive, too, which sets it apart from other options out there. The calorie counter is available online or on a mobile device so you can always keep track of what you eat. MyFitnessPal also works with many mainstream tracker devices such as Garmin. You can also download the MayMyRun or MapMyRide apps to see the exact route you traveled.
