I have something to admit. I’m not a huge fitness nut. My older sister? She’s a total fitness nut. And I phrase it that way mostly because she’s flat out crazy, even if she won’t admit it. Me not so much. The fitness part I mean. I’m plenty crazy. But getting healthier is a goal of mine. Now that I have a daughter and she is old enough to comprehend these things, I want to set a good example. Part of that is eating right and part of it is exercising. But part of it is being able to keep track of what I’m doing.
And while there is no magic bullet for the first two, there are definitely tools to help with the third, and two of those are the new Jawbone UP2 or UP3 at Best Buy. These are not you run of the mill fitness trackers that tell you how many steps you took during the day. That’s so last year. First track your activity, from running a marathon (so not me) to chasing your 5 year old around the grocery store (yeah, that’s me). Then when you are asleep (you know, because you are exhausted from chasing your five year old around) it will actually track and chart your sleep cycle and resting heartbeat. That data goes into Smart Coach and actually gives you suggestions on how to improve your sleep. Add in the calories you burned from chasing your kids around and the dog and cooking dinner and carrying 50 loads of laundry up and down the stairs and bringing up that 40 pound bag of dog food and now you actually have a complete picture of your health and Smart Coach will again make suggestions. A ton of super smart technology bundled into a tiny little package that you can wear all the time. Sign me up.
