10 Reasons to Gift Fitness Tracker During Coronavirus

Here are the top ten reasons to gift your loved one a fitness tracker during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Inactivity, without a doubt, can lead to a variety of health and personal problems, such as weight gain, the onset of chronic and acute illness, and even low productivity at school, work, and everyday life. On the other hand, continuous action will help to avoid and even reverse many of these problems. Running, biking, or even fidgeting in your seat can all help to improve a person’s overall health. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to withdraw socially, fitness trackers will help us keep on track with our fitness goals! Not to mention, moderate physical activity boosts your immune system and protects you from illnesses and viruses.

Fitness trackers are becoming more common as a way to keep track of your progress. Wearers will monitor steps, calories, distance travelled, caloric intake, and even heart rate and sleep, depending on the tracker. Some also have GPS monitoring to keep track of your distance and speed. Although fitness trackers may seem to be a waste of money for those who already have athletic motivation, they can be the “ghost you” you’ve been looking for all along!

Personal accountability

Unless the software that comes with your fitness tracker allows you to share your progress on social media. The only person you’re competing against is yourself! Fitness trackers keep track of your goals and success, mentally inspiring you to take more action today than yesterday, run faster today, and keep the high heart rate for that intense interval training just a little longer. Wearing a fitness tracker – even if it’s only a simple pedometer! – can increase a user’s activity levels by 30%, according to research.

Individualized objectives

Maybe you’re a season 5k runner who wants to branch out to the 10k and half-marathon distances. Maybe you haven’t even gone for a walk around the neighbour hood since you graduated from college. In any case, most fitness trackers provide workouts, tips, and attainable goals for you to set. Before completing a half-marathon, you should be able to run at least a 5k and a 10k. If you want to run a 5k but have been sedentary, there are couch-to-5k programs that can get you running 3.1 miles in as little as eight weeks.

It’s all about you!

Let’s face it: going to the gym causes a lot of anxiety. Going to the gym can be intimidating for many people, whether they work out regularly or haven’t worked out in a long time. “Am I doing anything correctly?” Are they keeping an eye on me? Most of us have wondered, “Will I be laughed at?” at some point in our lives.

On the other hand, fitness trackers are a “crutch” in the sense that you can rely on them and tune into them to ensure you’re working out for the right reasons. When you’re anxious, your fitness tracker and where you are in your goals can be a great focus, whether you work out at home, in the park, or at the gym.

Monetary Motivation

Many fitness tracker models cost more than $100 at retail. For certain people, it’s a lot of money for certain people to pay for a small band that wraps around your wrist and shows details that most athletes don’t need to know to stay motivated to work out. However, this is a part of the psychological support. If you’re going to spend the money on it, you may as well make the most of it.

Up-to-date Weight-loss Tool

You might not note the gains (or losses) you’re making in your weight-loss target because you’re so busy striving to beat and maintain your records. Alternatively, you may. Regardless, monitoring your activity levels, noticing if you’re in the right heart rate range, and comparing your weight on the scale after a few weeks will help you figure out whether you’re on track to reach your goal weight.

A Group’s Dynamic

Although personal motivation is the most important aspect of physical activity. Many people, often enjoy the benefits of sharing their workouts on social media. Many fitness tracker apps encourage you to connect with other trackers in your area, form exercise groups, and participate in challenges.

Incentives Encourage Workplace Engagement

Fitness is no longer a personal pastime or habit. Employers are offering many benefits to encourage workers to embrace and sustain a healthier lifestyle. Employees at Richardson Software, for example, we’re told that if they took one million steps, they would be reimbursed for the cost of their exercise tracker. They were taking advantage of every free time they had to walk. Oscar Insurance Company began a program in which workers were paid $1 for each day they met a target in measures. If your business isn’t already on board with these benefits, try to persuade them! Having healthy workers also saves money for businesses!

Variety of Trackers

With so many fitness trackers on the market, a curious shopper will easily figure out which features they want most on their tracker. If you know the distance of the trail you usually hike, GPS may not be required; similarly, if you have a watch and can track your heart rate yourself, the heart rate function may not be necessary. They’re customizable at this stage!

All you Require in a Single Package

You’re all set and ready to go once you’ve decided what features your fitness tracker should have. There’s no need to open an app or worry about running out of battery if you have several apps open because most trackers can automatically sync tracking activity to your phone through Bluetooth. If that isn’t possible, some trackers can be manually plugged into a device via USB to upload data.

Many trackers can be kept running every day – and even all year – with only a nightly charge or plugged into a laptop.

Also, Get Some Rest!

Tracking the quality of your sleep used to necessitate sleeping in a lab with wires attached to decide if you were in REM or NREM sleep; now, fitness trackers can easily determine the quality of your sleep based on your activity while sleeping.

Sleep is a critical factor in the quality of your health and lifestyle. Getting at least three complete cycles of sleep each night is essential.  For sustaining the energy you need during the day while still giving your brain enough time to store and digest all that happened; the day before!
