Counting steps was a good start, but fitness trackers have evolved tremendously over the years – with all the new bells and whistles you practically have a personal trainer strapped to your wrist. And in some cases, a guardian angel.
Time has proven that these gadgets aren’t just a passing fad, but a trend. It’s time to double down on fitness trackers – and here’s why.
Wearables are now loaded with so many additional features you’d think you were 007. Take it from tech giant Apple, the reigning king of smartwatches – their version has a heart-rate sensor, built-in GPS, is water resistant, and able to sync with Apple’s Health and Workout apps.
But Apple also heard the public’s call for versatility, so in addition to monitoring your health and measuring workouts, users can also receive messages, sync playlists, or have Siri set reminders – guaranteeing you won’t miss a beat.

It Could Save Your Life
Dennis Anselmo, a 62-year-old builder, was rushed to the hospital when his Apple Watch registered his heart rate at more than 210 beats per minute (bpm) – normal is approximately 55-75 bpm. Doctors discovered a severe blockage in his arteries – he was mere minutes away from suffering what would have likely been a fatal heart attack.
And Paul Houle Jr., a high school senior and football player, had a similar experience when his Apple Watch clocked his heart rate at 145 bpm – not unusual for an intense workout, but it continued for hours. Turns out Houle had rhabdomyolysis – a syndrome that can cause sever kidney damage if untreated.
