Is anyone using wearable technology for step counters?
Does wearing these watches help motivate you?
I use the misfit shine. I have had mine for 3.5 years and love it.
I just bought an inexpensive one, Jawbone Up Move and am very happy with it and yes they are a great motivator.
Just to add my husband has just had a kidney transplant and a birthday so I've bought him the newer version of mine which is a misfit ray to help him slowly build up his steps as he works at getting active again. He likes seeing the sleep side of it as well, I can already see that he is checking his stats to see how he is doing. So for some it is a great motivator.
My a cheap one does exactly the same as everyone's I was shocked when I compared
What's the name of your piece of kit please as I would much rather start with something that is cheaper....just in case I can't use it....and yes I'm old!!!! X
It's come up as a day day band on my phone
Thank you....I will try to buy one ..x
Flossie i have a fitbit bought it out of avon i think it was 40 euros it counts calories burnt distance kms how many steps and how much sleep i aim for 10000 steps or more i use it every day to keep me motivated i have got into the habit i want to know what i have achieved throughout the day. Iam not very good with gadgets but this is very simple to use when apps are mentioned i have not a clue. Good luck they are well worth it.
I got mine off site called wish 12 Il have to look for name for you
Yes please I would really appreciate that x
I have an app on my phone which is good but you must remember to have your phone with you at all times
Thanks to all who took the trouble to reply I'm really grateful. Hopefully after Easter I will get one and let it put me to work....xx
to be up to 10 minutes by now, but not yet. Mind you, even 6 minutes gets the blood flowing and warms...
and general “dont feel up to it”. All can be helped with a little stroll out the door sometimes. Happy...
