Summer is coming, but are you ready? Did you even get into fitness tracking? If you’re like me, you spent the coldest months of winter hibernating at home with minimal physical activity. Now that the weather is finally warming up, I’m feeling inspired and want to make some healthy lifestyle changes for a fresh start this season. Check out these fitness tracking apps and tech that will help you feel more confident and summer-ready.
Apple Watch Series 4
A smartwatch like the Apple Watch Series 4 is great for being more cognizant of your activity level. This watch inspires you to live a healthier life by providing in-depth metrics on your workouts, monitoring your heart, and help manage your stress. Plus, it lets you challenge a friend with an activity competition for some extra motivation.
Samsung Galaxy Watch
The Samsung Galaxy Watch seamlessly integrates with your Samsung phone. It has a built-in GPS, altimeter, and barometer so you can still track even when you're off the beaten track. It acts as your own personal training by measuring your heart rate and tracking activities when you're exercising.
