3 Gadgets That Support Your Healthy Lifestyle

It’s summer time and you should be out and about: enjoying the warm weather, communing with nature, maybe getting some exercise. Right? Well, sometimes life isn’t just that simple, and we know it! Maybe you have pressing work duties that hold you hostage indoors, maybe you have the time but lack the will power and commitment to just go out and get healthy. Maybe you have a bit of technological addition that keeps you fixated upon shiny mechanical baubles, in detriment of getting some good old physical activity, which is all-around good for body and mind.

Whatever your excuse might be, you will no longer have valid reasons not to stay healthy and active – not after reading this post, since it’s a best of both worlds kind of deal. We’re introducing you to some of the hottest modern gadgets that you can actually rely on for support in your quest for improved health and  fitness. Hopefully, this will encourage you to cut out on the sedentary lifestyle and start getting more endorphines into your system (no… not your computer system – your actual body, indeed).

Well then, let’s see some recommendations that you may find intriguing:

Wii Fit Plus

This one, you’re probably familiar with, right? The video-game/personal trainer combo from Nintendo, which has earned much praise and acclaim in the past couple of years. Truth of the matter is, the Wii Fit really is a divine gift for people who don’t seem to have the inclination or availability to get out and exercise. Sure, it’s just a video game and it will only take you so far… but still, it’s fun, enjoyable, and simple enough for anyone to get into. It comes with a good assortment of exercises, and the software does a decent job at evaluating your physical condition and helping you improve upon it. If you want to get in the habit of physical exercise and you don’t feel comfortable going out jogging just yet, this is one of the  best ways to start!

Body Fat Analyzer

One of the best ways to convince yourself that it’s time to get healthy is being aware of your body condition: not just your weight, but your fat composition as well. After all, being healthy is not just a matter of weight, but rather it’s about having a proportional distribution of muscle mass, body water and fat. Well… thanks to these innovative body fat analyzers available on the market, you can now get that kind of reading from the comfort and privacy of your home. Even better, once you input your age and height, these machines will even calculate the number of calories that you should ideally lose daily, as well as keep track of your progress over time.

GPS Watch

When you’re ready to actually go out and get some proper physical exercise, jogging is probably one of the best options available. You can do it almost anywhere, you get to explore your surroundings while you do it, and it will provide you with a sense of accomplishment and natural high, especially if you keep running regularly. With a GPS watch, it’s even more fun! These devices won’t just recommend directions, but also keep track of your chosen routes; they will record your pace, speed and performance for future reference, and even allow you to upload your accomplishments on-line to compare with your friends’, and you can even send and receive jogging routes over the Internet. When you feel like taking your running to a whole new level, you need to get yourself of these gadgets!

We hope this article served as inspiration. Now, how about getting up from that chair and stretching those muscles for a little while? But before you do, make sure to hit the comments box below and tell us how you feel about these articles, alright?

    Never thought a video game could support a “healthy” lifestyle.

    I would still recommend the Wii Fit over jogging though.

    Great article, Pedro, especially for bloggers who tend to sit in front of their computer all day and get out of shape and lazy.

    This article has motivated me to get up and walk around…:)

    The thing about exercising is that it feels like a chore just until you get into it… then you realize it’s actually liberating and even exhilarating.

    Take it from a former mouse potato who’s turned endorphin junky: it’s amazing how much better you will feel in your mind when you start moving around more!

    Hey Pedro,
    I think I’ll go for the body fat analyzer 🙂 it’ll keep reminding me of the extra weight I need to shed in case I gain, if not to hit the gym regularly. Its truly for people who sit in front of the computer or sit in one place for hours. The GPS watch however sounds complicated to me but maybe it’ll be a good companion since I jog.

    Can’t really use a Wii since my neighbours would disagree on the level of noise i’m allowed to make, but a GPS watch is an interesting idea since i jog almost every day and a little exploring would prove interesting.

    A gps watch and body fat analyzer seems to be awesome gadgets to have..

  11. Pedro Cardoso

    Yeah… those GPS watches are amazing! I only started running a few months ago, so I’m holding back not to purchase one of these on a whim… but as soon as I can jog a few miles non-stop, I will surely be treating myself with this gadget. Some models even look pretty slick and can be used as normal wristwatches. Cool stuff!

    Can you recommend some books or journals on this topic, which you personally like to gain knowledge about general health issues. Plus i think every body who is interested in fitness, should have body fat analyzer and gps watch
    or if he/she is on tight budget then at least analyzer is must have.

    Thank you

    I have Wii fit plus. It helped me a lot. I gave it to my parents and they will use it to lose weight.
    It’s a fun way to work on your shape and learn to keep your balance.

    The gps watch is a great idea. I use a cario app on my droid when exercising. It’s great for tracking my distance and speed.

    The Body Fat analyzer is useful in determining our current fats. It doesn’t mean that being thin you do not have fat. There are thin people who died in high blood pressure attach because of their fats. So this is very useful in all cases.

    This is a great review! Keep fit, have fun. And please, don’t smoke while you’re at it. I once went to a Wii promo a few years back when the Wii was still new. I love how kids could potentially be getting exercise from their video games, how much, I have no idea. I was wondering why Wii don’t take the green step by powering their console with the kinetic energy of the player but hey, that’s another ballgame altogether. My TV went up in smoke last week so I’m planning to buy a huge 46 inch one and probably get Wii along with it. Anyone knows where I can get some kind of a promo code for a discount or something for both a Wii and a TV?

    Great Blog! I really love to play Wii Fit Plus and my Just Dance 4 in my Xbox. It helps me burn calories 🙂 People should try it sometimes. It’s pretty great. You play while exercising!

    I agree that sometimes we just have a thousand and one excuses as to why we are not outside leading a healthy lifestyle. Some of us are really lacking of free time, whilst the rest of us simply want the easy way out. Plastic surgery is one of the many easy ways out that I was talking about and people are willing to spend thousands of dollars just to stay beautiful. However, what we tend to forget is that a beautiful exterior does not necessarily guarantee a healthy interior. That is why we still need to exercise to be beautiful from the outside and within.
