January is the perfect time to work off some of that Christmas excess! There’s no better way to get motivated than with a Smartwatch.
I have had my Apple watch for two years now and I love it. Even though I am not the slightest bit competitive, It does motivate me to keep an eye on the activity app. Perfect for seeing how many steps I’ve completed or to give me a kick up the backside when I’m not moved for the last hour! It’s also perfect for recording walks or runs, something which I enjoy doing most weekends.
In January adverts and programs are very much dominated by fitness and exercise and it’s easy to put extra unnecessary pressure on yourself. The best way to look at it is positively, just do as little or as much as you feel comfortable with. Start gently if you’ve not exercised for a while and build it up gradually. Sadly there is no quick fix and it’s might get harder before it gets easier.
There are several online apps which can be Linked to smartwatches so another great tool for motivation. When I first took up running the only thing holding me back was me but now I look back on my watch and my activity app and I can see how far I’ve come. You too can achieve your goals.
Whilst smartwatches can be pricey they are a good investment and much cheaper than a year’s gym membership. Watches come in a price range to suit most budgets so why not see if you can find one to help you stay fit and healthy.
