Looking to get in shape? Turn to tech.

Techstination feature for Friday, December 30, 2016

If getting in better shape is among your resolutions, turn to tech for help.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.   For millions of people wearable tech that can track your steps, heart rate and sleep…has become a way of life.    And from personal experience I can tell you the motivation from trackers can be very effective.    Fitbit has just updated the Charge 2…with new software allowing users to pause and resume workouts…and get a new tachometer style visualization of heart rate zones.   The Charge 2 also offers feedback for guided breathing sessions designed to help you relax.    Senior Product Marketing Manager Michael Polin…

“I think what’s so unique about Fitbit is the community that we’ve built.  There’s a social element of that.  There’s a comradery among our users.”

You can find the Charge 2 for under 120 dollars.   On the higher end, TomTom is out with the Adventurer featuring GPS…heart rate, 3 gigabytes of built in music storage in the watch….which connects with included Bluetooth headphones.     You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
