New Fitness Gadgets You Can Expect to See At Fitness Expos
January 25th, 2017 by Brian Zinkel
Gadgets are great. They are fantastic motivators, especially when it comes to losing weight and becoming more active. Considering the fact that less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day, and only one-third of adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week, it looks as if Americans need a little boost when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Music can be a great motivator during exercise. It’s great for almost all sports except swimming. But now swimmers can listen to their pump-up playlists while in the pool with this little device that clips onto their goggles and uses bone conduction audio to play music. With this technology, there is no need for clumsy earbuds in the pool, and it will make all music louder and clearer underwater.
Checking your activity and heart rate can be challenging while cycling. Not anymore with the Sportiiis, which clips onto your sunglasses and gives an innovative Heads Up Display so you don’t have to stop what you’re doing to check your heart rate. Instead, it has different colored LED lights to alert you when you have reached a certain level, followed by voice prompts for more motivation.
iSp02 Pulse Oximeter
Made for serious sports enthusiasts, this device syncs with your iPhone to help track your blood oxygen levels, pulse rate, and Perfusion Index. While it is not intended for medical use, this gadget can be especially helpful for those athletes who travel a lot, as it provides a portable monitor for coaches to analyze.
This little guy is great for helping cut down your portions when willpower simply isn’t enough. Known for helping to reduce your eating pace, this fork will vibrate when you are eating too fast. It can be synced to your smartphone, where you can see how many forkfuls you are eating a minute.
