A Smart Way to a Healthier Lifestyle
The rise of smartwatches and wearable technology like the Apple Watch and Fitbit are transforming healthcare in an entirely new way. These devices have allowed people to take charge of their physical and mental well-being, right from their wrists!
Advanced features available on smartwatches are capable of tracking more than just steps with various built-in sensors to monitor and record heart rate, sleep, activity, and more. Smartwatches can prompt you to stand up after a long sedentary period, remind you to do guided breathing exercises and sometimes encourages healthy competition using built-in features for competing with friends, which makes it fun! The latest edition of the Apple Watch also includes blood pressure and temperature monitoring, which can help with fertility planning and could be available as soon as next year.
Research shows wearing your smartwatch on a daily basis, rather than taking it on and off, helps form healthy habits. Keep this in mind if you’re looking to add wearable technology to your healthy lifestyle!
