Fitness is a huge part of my life. I’m always looking for new and innovative ways to improve myself since I’m trying to get more fit. So getting a Nike FuelBand SE was an easy decision. There are several fitness bands on the market but what stood out most for me was the LED display where I can easily check how many calories I’ve burned, the amount of steps taken, the time and several other stats and messages.
Now that I’ve played with my new gadget for a few days I see how addictive it can be -but in a good way! I set my Nike Fuelband to alert me every hour to get moving. There have been several health reports that sitting for hours can shave years off your life so I feel its important to be active and move as much as possible. Once my alert goes off I stretch or walk around; when I’m at home I do some jumping jacks. It’s amazing how much we sit! I know that many of us work in an office or behind a computer for hours but that is still no excuse not to get moving.
The Nike+ FuelBand SE has Bluetooth connectivity for continuous syncing to your iPhone which is my one of my other favorite gadgets. It also allows social connectivity with other Nike+ users. You can also publish your stats to Twitter or Facebook if you want to show off a bit. 😉
The Nike+ FuelBand SE measures all your movements and translates them into points. You can earn “trophies” which is inspiring for anyone into a little friendly competition. The fitness band tracks activities, such as runs, bicycle rides, soccer games, yoga and sleep. When you reach your goal, the LED lights illuminates and a message pops up to congratulate you.
I’m loving mine so far and if you’re into fitness and (I hope you are )then getting a fitness band just makes sense. Getting (and staying) in shape is not easy and this particular fitness gadget gives me a little more motivation to keep moving, inspiration to reach a new goal and a congratulation for my hard-earned workout.
