Fitbits are all the rage in the health industry, and for good reason. There are many fun and healthy benefits to owning one, and you would be surprised at how many different features it has! Valley has 10 reasons why you should invest in one.
It really does encourage you to work out. Through competitions, such as “Workweek Hustle,” you and your friends challenge each other to get the most steps. Be prepared for schemes and dirty tactics to rack up those steps. You’ll even be able to know the distance you walked that day.
Track Your Heartbeat
You can track your heartbeat. This comes in handy when you are working out, so you can reach your target heart rate. It also is useful to know your heartbeat in times of stress to calm yourself down.
The sleep tracker leads to better sleeping habits. You can not only see how long you slept for, but also how many minutes you were “restless” or awake for throughout the night and when.
It’s a Watch!
You’ll always have the time and date on your wrist.
Count Your Calories
You can track water intake and caloric intake, which is especially advantageous for weight loss strategies. Another benefit is being able to record your weight and set goals.
And, Say Bye-Bye to Calories
See how many calories you burn everyday and during workouts.
Fitbits feature how many minutes you are active each day and adds those minutes up at the end of the week. You can challenge yourself to top last week’s number.
It’s comfortable to wear. You barely even know it’s there!
Counts the Climbs
It registers how many flights of stairs you climb every day. It’s always fun to see how much you’re actually doing for your body when you don’t even realize it, especially when you have third floor classes.
Owning a Fitbit Leads to a Healthier You
Whether you’re athletic or not, anyone can enjoy the benefits from a fitbit.
