Happy first day of October lovelies! Remember how I said here that I’m finally making progress with finding balance with my health and fitness? Well, here are a few of the changes I’ve been making:
1. Eating more vegetables
2. Prioritizing sleep
3. Walking and Running more, thanks to the help of my Vivofit 2!
See that WALL-E-like device on my wrist? That’s the Vivofit 2. It’s an activity tracker that records the wearer’s daily steps, distance covered, kilojoules burnt, and also functions as a watch. It syncs with my Garmin Connect Mobile app so I can keep track of my fitness progress. Whether it’s walking, running or dancing, the Vivofit 2 is a serious prompter! I’ve been wearing my Vivofit 2 for over 2 months now and absolutely love it. It’s changed my life! I find it very motivating to see the number of steps taken each day, and am not satisfied until I reach the goal. Whenever I get to my step goal, the Vivofit 2 beeps to congratulate. But if I don’t move for an extended period of time (say if I sit on my butt for an hour), it will also beep to remind me to walk. It’s like having a personal trainer on the back of my hand!
I’ve tried other wrist trackers before but what I love about the Vivofit 2 is that I don’t have to charge it every night! It boasts a battery that lasts for a year. Thanks to Garmin’s recent collaboration with Jonathan Adler, a globally renowned artist and designer, the Vivofit 2 is now also available in a range of stylish accessory bands. Fashion-conscious fitness junkies can now track their steps in style from the sofa to the streets! Wearable technology becomes wrist adornment!Have I piqued your interest? If so, here’s a nifty video about how the Vivofit 2 works. You can find out more about the trusty little device [HERE].
