As the public becomes more concerned with health, wellness, and reducing the time they sit, companies like Fitbit are capitalizing on this “quantified self.” Activity tracking devices are everywhere you turn. According to a recent investigation by Canalys, over 7 million devices were sold in the first quarter of 2015. What started as a fad has now become a lifestyle change – people want to know how much they move (and sit)!
So – with all those devices out there, how should you go about choosing one that will meet your needs? It can be overwhelming looking at all the functions and features, so it’s best to take time to investigate what works best for your personal needs. There’s no sense in buying a device with a heart rate monitor if you have no plans to use it!
