Nifty Gadgets to Keep Your Fitness Regimen on Track

These nifty gadgets will keep your New Year fitness resolutions on track

Apple Watch Series 7: The device supports a wide range of workouts and tracks vital stats Apple Watch Series 7: The device supports a wide range of workouts and tracks vital stats

Fitness Companion

Be it to jump-start your fitness routine, help you track your workout or keep an eye on your vital stats, the Apple Watch does it all. It’s great at recording workouts, guided breathing sessions, measuring ECG, heart rate and even blood oxygen levels. Supporting a wide range of workouts including walks, jogging, swimming, yoga, core training and Tai Chi—to name a few—the activity rings show the day’s activities at a glance. What I love the most is when the watch reminds me to walk a little more to complete my day’s goal. The Breathe app is great for mindful breathing and relaxing, something I use a lot when I am stressed. The blood oxygen measurement, heart rate monitoring and ECG are bang on (despite this not being a medical device). Unlike most bands that automatically record sleep cycles, this one doesn’t. Instead, it helps you in developing a healthy sleeping pattern by suggesting you set up a sleep schedule, activate sleep mode and wind down (to reduce distractions and help you relax). But mind you, the Apple Watch works only with iPhones.

If you’re not a watch person, then consider something like the Fitbit Charge 5. With close to seven days of battery backup, it can track around 20 workouts and body stats in real-time. It also comes with built-in GPS, stress management, 24x7 heart rate monitor, SpO2, etc. Just like the Apple Watch, this measures your ECG (but via an app). The device is comfortable to wear as well, even to track your sleep. It works with both iOS and Android.
