Gone are the days of untangling your headphones from inside your gym bag and scribbling down your best guess at calorie intake in a notebook. Recent strides in technology have led to some seriously cool health and fitness tools that can serve as handy support systems to help you become the best version of yourself.
Apple Watch Series 4
The Apple Watch has taken the world by storm. Telling time is just the beginning of this watch's full functionalities. The Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 can track your daily steps and heart rate as well as stream music to your headphones so you don't have to exercise with your iPhone in your pocket. Th Series 4 specifically also connects with the Nike Run app for seamless data syncing. If you have a friend that owns an Apple Watch, you've most likely heard them talk about "closing the rings." With three circles for Move, Exercise, and Stand, the Apple watch lets you set specific activity-related goals and reminds you to complete them throughout the day.
Have your headphone cords ever gotten in the way of your workout? No more tucking those pesky wires into your shirt between sets. Apple AirPods are those small, wireless white earbuds you keep seeing in ears all around the gym. With 5 hours of listening time, you can get almost a week's worth of workouts out of one charge. They turn on automatically by sensing when they're in your ears and pause when you remove them. Just ask Siri to turn up the volume or make a phone call.
