Working out has quickly become a high-tech activity. People are incorporating all sorts of high-tech gadgets and apps into their physical fitness routines. These tech additions certainly make working out more fun, but they also serve to improve health and well-being.

PEDOMETERS

Slap on a pedometer and it will keep track of the number of steps you take in any given time period. You can attach a pedometer to a loop on your pants or shorts. You can also clip it right onto your pocket or waistband. Some pedometers will provide additional information such as altitude, METs, calories burned and intricate charts/graphs to analyze your activity levels.

FITNESS WEARABLES/MONITORS

Aside from pedometers, there are several cool fitness wearables on the market. From smartwatches to heart rate monitors and beyond, modern day fitness tech can gauge just about everything about your body and exercise performance. Wearables can track your running or walking speed, heart rate, rate of acceleration, sleep quality, distance covered, calories burned, steps taken and beyond. Collected information can then be synced up to a connected device.

CALORIE COUNTING APPS

Burning more calories than you consume is critically important to maintaining a healthy body. If you eat a ton of calories and fail to burn the same amount or more throughout the day, you will gain weight or at least plateau.
