Healthy Gadgets

What gadgets are you using to track your fitness. Here’s a good list form over at TechCrunch. Here are mine, and some I’ve retired:

  1. FitBit - small, accurate, easy to carry. Doesn’t do cycling well but great for everything else.
  2. MyFitnessPal (app) brilliant tracker and food logger
  3. Garmin Edge 500 (for the bike) – brilliant and essential for tracking rides
  4. Strava (app) great for tracking rides. Garmin does much of the same for me but this is a handy back-up.

Retired:

  • Nike FuelBand: too big and bulky. Not accurate. And I lost it.
  • JawboneUp: Liked this. was a 1st generation unit and lost faith in it after all their issues with it.

So, there you go. What are you using to track your fitness progress?

    Hi andy,

    Just got the new generation of Up a couple weeks ago. So far so good. The sleep tracking is really interesting.

    Cheers,

    David

    Hi Andy

    Given the name I’d imagine you’d be using this – although not so sure about how it would look in the boardroom ;)

    Good piece here too:

    Me? I’m suffering from years of neglect so going back to basics – walking/running with some great tunes to keep my spirits up – the notches on my belt buckle being the ultimate fitness tracker!

    Cheers,

    David.
