Make the Most of Your Workout with These 7 Fitness Gadgets

When it comes to the challenge of physical fitness, it’s no secret that all of us need as much help as we can get. For most, finding the motivation to begin or continue a fitness regimen is more difficult than the exercise itself. There are ways to overcome this hurdle: fitness gadgetsActivity monitors.

Fitness gadgets vary in their appearance and functionality, but for the most part, they revolve around making your workouts more enjoyable, tracking your progress, or simply helping to motivate you to be more physically active. There are 5 general categories that fitness gadgets fall into:

1) Fitness Trackers

2) Heart Rate Monitors

3) Pedometers

4) Running GPS units

5) Sport watches

We will take the time to go over the benefits and drawbacks of each of these gadgets to help you decide which of them is right for your needs. Without further ado, here are our choices for the best workout gadgets on the market today:

1) Fitness Trackers

A fitness tracker, or activity tracker, is a device or app that identifies and analyses your activity to determine general fitness. They come in many shapes and sizes, but most are found in the form of wristbands or integrated into watches. They also come as smartphone apps, although these are notoriously less complicated and less reliable. Fitness trackers operate by accounting for your overall fitness every day – steps taken, calories consumed, heart rate monitoring – some even account for how much sleep you get and how restful it was by tracking your heart rate and movement during evening hours.

PROS:
  • All-in-one solution for tracking your fitness regimen.
  • Great for tracking general fitness (nutrition, exercise and sleep).
  • Most gadgets are very fashionable and can be multi-purpose (watches, phone apps, etc.).

CONS:
  • Can be a bit expensive (generally fairly priced).
  • Different gadgets have different functionality, so read the fine print of a device before you buy it.
  • May not be your ideal fashion choice.

Editor’s Choice: Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker

The Fitbit One is an introductory clip-on fitness tracker which keeps track of your general fitness throughout the day based on your movement. Its features include:

– Steps and activity monitor

– Clock display

– Sleep monitoring

The Fitbit One is on the basic side of fitness monitors, but it is a great place to start if you are beginning your workout regimen. It will help you determine your general fitness level and how well you are sleeping every night, which will give you clues into how to better pursue your fitness goals.

Final diagnosis: Great beginner’s device. Can be easy to forget or lose due to size.

Editor’s Choice: Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband

The Fitbit Flex is a middle-of-the-road fitness tracker. It has most of the functionality of its more expensive and complex cousins, but at a better price. Features include:

– Activity monitoring

– Progress updates

– Sleep monitoring

– 5 day battery life and water resistant

For the everyday person, the Flex is our selection for the best fitness tracker on the market today. It has a ridiculous 5-day battery life which beats the competition by several days on average. It is also one of the only devices in this category to be water resistant, which means it can be used just about anywhere. It is very fairly priced and contains most features associated with a top-level fitness tracker. The only drawback we found was its look, which is pretty basic to say the least. However, if you want, you can accessorize it with a series of Fitbit attachments

Final diagnosis: Perfect mid-range fitness device for any user.

Editor’s Choice: Fitbit Charge HR Wireless Activity Wristband

The Fitbit Charge HR is one of the newest activity trackers out on the market. It is an all-inclusive activity tracker with all the fixings:

– Heart Rate monitor

– Steps taken, stairs climbed, calories burned and workout summaries- Connects to your smartphone to give you call notifications and caller ID- Connects to the Fitbit App- Tracks sleep duration and quality

Any one of these factors would make the Charge HR a great workout gadget. However, putting them all in one wristband makes training and fitness analysis easy, motivational and fun. The best part about this device is that it keeps you accountable for your actions during your fitness regimen. You will always know whether or not you are meeting your fitness goals, and can adjust your workouts accordingly.

Final diagnosis: On the pricey side, but has tons of features to make it worthwhile.

Overall, fitness trackers have the ability to give you an all-in-one solution to physical fitness analysis and can provide you with motivation to work harder, eat healthier or simply keep you on track when you are considering giving up your workout routine. We strongly suggest looking into them as a way of supplementing your fitness regimen.

2) Heart Rate Monitors

There is no secret to what heart monitors do: they measure your heartbeat throughout the day to determine how much work your body is doing. As far as fitness gadgets go, heart rate monitors are among the least effective pieces of technology because they can inaccurately deduce the impact your workouts are having on your overall fitness. For example, elevated stress can cause an increase in heart rate which these devices can mistake as physical activity. That being said, if you want a simple instrument to measure general health and wellness, there’s nothing wrong with starting off with a heart rate monitor.

PROS:
  • Very easy to use
  • Simple to understand
  • No additional technology required

CONS:
  • No added benefits such as goal tracking
  • Notoriously inaccurate for overall fitness
  • Very low on the motivational scale

Editor’s Choice: Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor

The Polar FT7 is our pick for the best heart rate monitor on the market because it goes above and beyond what traditional heart rate monitors reveal to you during your workout. For example, this device allows you to input your body height, weight, age and gender to give you real-time analysis on your workout’s effectiveness. This also allows it to identify what form of exercise you are performing and what energy pathway you are improving (i.e. burning fat or improving cardiovascular fitness). Finally, it is a cheaper alternative than complete fitness monitors, making it a great starting gadget to help you improve your physical fitness on a daily basis.

Final diagnosis: Great fitness device for beginners. Accurate measurements and easy to use.

3) Pedometers

Pedometers are another very basic form of activity monitoring that help you determine your general level of fitness throughout the day by tracking your steps on a daily basis. While they have been on the market for some time, pedometers have taken a back seat to fitness trackers due to their limited comparable functionality. In other words, most fitness trackers do what pedometers do, as well as track calories in/out and sleep effectiveness. That being said, pedometers are still a great tool to help motivate you during your fitness regimen and help give you a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day.

PROS:
  • Easy to understand
  • Helps motivate your workouts

CONS:
  • Doesn’t help with nutrition or sleep effectiveness

Editor’s Choice: Garmin Vívofit Fitness Band

The Vivofit is a terrific piece of technology that gives any user the motivation to improve their fitness level. The thing that really sets this device apart from its competitors is that it tracks your average daily fitness level and proposes a series of attainable goals for you to reach. In other words, the Vivofit operates as your own personal trainer from the comfort of your own wrist. Every day, you will be shown what your daily goal should be based on what a healthy lifestyle would entail. It is then up to you to ensure you reach your daily goals. The Vivofit also functions as a watch and can operate for as much as a year without a battery charge. Additional features such as online apps to help keep you motivated and track your progress are also available.

Final diagnosis: Terrific piece of fitness technology. Great for beginners who don’t have a pre-planned fitness regimen.

4) Running GPS units

Running GPS units were created with joggers in mind. These fitness gadgets operate by tracking the distance and time of your jog to calculate fitness factors such as calories burned, running speed and distance traveled. They are extremely accurate and really help you manage your running schedule. On the downside, they are very one-dimensional in that they do not help you with nutrition-based fitness goals. They are also inefficient at tracking daily exercising since sitting still for hours (while at work, for example) can skew your final numbers at the end of the day. Regardless, if your preferred method of exercise is running, these gadgets are perfect for you.

PROS:
  • Perfect for joggers and runners
  • Very accurate data analysis
  • Very motivational to keep you exercising

CONS:
  • Doesn’t help with nutrition or sleep effectiveness

Editor’s Choice: Garmin Vívoactive

Garmin’s Vivoactive GPS Watch stands above its competitors for several reasons:

– It has built-in sports tracking software, to directly identify your activity metrics based on established norms for your favorite activities- An extended battery gives you 3 weeks of usage time without a charge- App integration gives you the ability to formulate future workout regimens and track your progress day after day

We are particularly impressed by the sports integration since most GPS watches stop at simply tracking running distance and duration. The Vivoactive takes it a step further by giving you options for tracking your fitness through baseball, football, soccer or even golf games, making it a perfect all-in-one solution for your fitness needs. If you are a swimmer, the Vivoactive tracks your lap times. If you are a runner it will check your heart rate and running speed. It can even track physical exertion during rock climbing. We are very impressed by this piece of technology and highly recommend it for regular athletes.

Final diagnosis: Ideal for regular athletes. More than most beginners need, but great if they intend to use it over the long term.

5) Sport Watches

Sport watches take a different approach to physical fitness by tracking an individual effort and comparing it to past attempts. For example, you might use a sport watch to time your 5k run time and then compare your next 5k run time to it. Sport watches are water and shock resistant, making them an ideal choice for marathoners and triathletes where every second matters. Most sport watches also feature heart rate monitors and calories burned during a workout, with some featuring programmable height, weight, age and gender features. They are ideal for those looking to compete athletically or for fitness buffs looking to beat personal bests.

PROS:
  • Perfect for competitive athletes
  • Great for challenging yourself
  • Ideal for running competitions

CONS:
  • Normally only used during a workout
  • No functionality for sleep or nutrition

Editor’s Choice: Fitbit Surge Fitness Superwatch

The Fitbit Surge lives up to its “superwatch” title. This device combines the strengths of pedometers, heart rate monitors and running GPS units and adds cool features like music control, sleep monitoring and best time comparisons. It is as close to an all-inclusive fitness gadget we have ever come across, and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take their workouts to the next level. The one problem we have with this piece of technology is its cost. It is more expensive than most exercise gadgets we reviewed but we feel that this cost is offset by the fact that you don’t have to purchase different devices to get a complete fitness helper in one compact watch.

Final diagnosis: If you can afford it, get it. You won’t be disappointed.
