How a Smartwatch Can Help You Get In Shape

Imagine having a personal trainer strapped to your wrist as you work towards your fitness goals – does it sound a bit far-fetched? Not with the bevy of advanced smartwatches available today, such as the iTOUCH Air from iTOUCH Wearables. Boasting constant reminders and fitness tracker apps, such a smartwatch can help you get fit easily while creating new healthy habits that last.

In this blog, we’re going to cover some of the amazing features of the iTOUCH Air – such as activity tracking, calorie counter, distance tracker and pedometer – and how they work together with secondary features like a sedentary reminder to get your body up to snuff. Before we begin, let’s go over some fundamental aspects of a smartwatch with regard to how they are helping fitness enthusiasts “step up” their game when getting in shape.

The average person takes about 4,000 steps a day, and by using features like built-in pedometers, more health-conscious folks can monitor their steps and try to increase them to burn calories. Have you ever considered taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or getting off the bus one stop early to walk the rest of the way? It all adds up.

Consider this, as well: According to scientific research, everyone should try to increase their steps to 10,000 a day, and having a Bluetooth smartwatch count these steps is ideal, because it’s always on the wrist and recording every step.

Enter iTOUCH Air

Designed for today’s connected, on-the-go lifestyle, the iTOUCH Air smartwatch boasts step, calorie, distance and sleep trackers to help you monitor your health while camera and music remotes make leisure time more enjoyable. Meanwhile, notifications, calculator and sedentary reminder features have you covered during the work day, while a sleeker, more rounded and lighter overall structure as compared to its predecessor brings additional benefits and functions.

How Products Like iTOUCH Air are Changing the Fitness Circuit

An advanced smartwatch offers the following benefits:

Sleep Monitoring

Sleep monitor apps on smartwatches monitor your sleep patterns, and assess your sleep-wake cycles to determine how restful you’ve slept. In turn this will help keep you health conscious even when you are not awake.

“Move It” Reminding

The sedentary reminder feature on smartwatches like the iTOUCH Air reminds us when to get up and get moving. As we mentioned in the beginning, having a personal trainer strapped to your wrist, reminding you to get up and move regularly, will help you create good habits – especially if you work behind a desk.

A Challenge

Use the stopwatch and timer functions on smartwatches to challenge your best times, which is particularly useful for runners and joggers.

Getting Lost in Music

The iTouch Air smart watch can help navigate the music on your phone; in fact, numerous studies have shown that music has a major impact on how effectively we work out.

Now, you might be thinking, this all sounds great…but can’t my smartphone do it all? The truth is, while smartphones can run fitness apps, many of the health and fitness apps of a smartwatch are built into the watch itself – this means they will be more accurate. Further, a smartphone requires reaching into your pocket and stopping what you’re doing altogether, while a simple flick of the wrist is all it takes to get readings or monitor your progress with a smartwatch.

Indeed, the future looks brighter than ever for products like the iTOUCH Air.
