How to lose weight with wearables
The buzz phrases today are “being healthy” and “healthy living.” Everyone wants to be healthy and lose weight TO live a healthy lifestyle, but no one quite knows the one-size-fits-all way to do it.
One factor that most scientists can agree on is that being overweight is unhealthy. Obesity is linked as a major contributor to multiple bodily issues, including but not limited to wear and tear on bones, injuries to organs, and medical conditions such as diabetes and heart problems, which can be serious and life-threatening.
In general, most people don’t want to be obese or unhealthy. They don’t strive to develop deadly diseases or overuse their body. In fact, many people will fall for just about any gimmick or “guaranteed” way to lose weight, making the weight loss market a multi-billion dollar industry.
Yet the only tried and true way has always defaulted to good old exercise. Wait! Don’t be scared! The good news is you are living in a world of scientific-technological breakthroughs, where healthy weight loss can be as simple as the accessories you choose to wear.
There is a simple recipe to weight loss that scientists have agreed on – sleep, exercise, enjoyment, and diet. Enter: the new era of WearableO, the smart accessories to help you on your journey to weight loss.
Did you know that if you are having problems losing weight, it could be because you are actually not getting enough sleep? Quality sleep is scientifically shown to equal higher productivity throughout the day, resulting in more calories burned and exercising your muscles more frequently.
In the past, you only knew if you were not getting enough sleep because you laid awake throughout the night hours, staring at your alarm clock, counting sheep, or trying one of the many other various techniques to put yourself in the right state to doze off, but ultimately dragging to your first of many cups of coffee the preceding day. Now, however…there’s an app for that.
The sleep tracking market is expanding at an astronomical rate, and there are many avenues for you to choose from to determine whether you are actually getting the quality sleep you need for your brain and body to be functioning at their peak rate.
Sleep trackers now range from those that detect changes in sleep patterns like muscle jerking and seizures for those families and caregivers who worry about their loved ones while they are sleeping, to the trackers that can soothe your nerves, detect fatigue and change in your sleep patterns, and track your sleep patterns to determine when you have had just the right amount of sleep, at which point it will double as an alarm clock and wake you up. So just think, sleeping can help you lose weight!
One of the most important aspects of ensuring weight loss is consistently measuring your body weight and BMI (Body Mass Index). While this can be tedious and sometimes disheartening, current technology devices are now available to help you to make this become an easy everyday task.
By now you have probably heard of the weight loss product Fitbits. This product line carries multiple items to help you track your body weight and mass, display your weight statistics and your progress trends in easy to read graphs and charts and sync your stats wirelessly and automatically to your other devices, including your smartphone.
Fitbit trackers and apps are easily and fashionably wearable to ensure that every move you make is monitored and your activity is adjusted accordingly, providing you accurate and timely information and results, without being cumbersome to deal with.
You can visibly track your progress, record your daily workouts, set a monthly calendar to give yourself goals to work towards, log the lists of food you have eaten, record your calories, and even earn badges for good work as you go!
Fitbits are water resistant and rechargeable, running on LCD batteries. Generally, they recognise multiple users and can store multiple accounts. You can compare the products available to find your perfect fit from the Zip, One, Charge, Alta, Blaze, Surge, or Aria that are currently available.
It is just as important to schedule in time for your leisure activities and hobbies throughout the day, but in our busy schedules, this is often difficult.
Scheduling your exercise time to be as effective as possible can help free up the time to do things we actually enjoy, thus alleviating stress from our lives and helping us to live a healthy lifestyle.
The combination of exercise and relaxation is a hard one to tweak to just the right amounts, but there are ways to help you schedule your exercises to be as effective as possible with minimal work.
Strenx by Gymwatch is a sensor that analyses your workout and determines where you can adjust what you are doing for peak effectiveness.
Designed to improve your strength training scientifically and precisely, this product will help you to be able to work smarter, not harder. While you are exercising, the app analyses your execution and movements, making sure that you exercise correctly and stress your muscles at just the right level of effectiveness but to ensure that you do not hurt yourself.
This not only keeps you from injuring your muscles, but also can cut time from your workout that you can use for your leisure time, yet you are still working at peak efficiency to result in optimum weight loss without working harder than you need to. Who wants to exercise if what we are doing is not actually doing anything for our bodies?
Overall Weight Loss
Working in combination with your diet, getting the right amount of sleep, tracking your activities, taking time for yourself, and maximising your core exercise training programs can result in optimum weight loss.

Living in today’s technologically advanced world, each of these steps to healthy living and weight loss are literally right at your fingertips.
