As the clocks go forward and nights become lighter, the thought of getting out the house to exercise will hopefully become less of a daunting challenge. To help you along the way, we’ve taken a look at some of the latest fitness tech on the market, from smart apps to track your steps, to wearables that monitor air temperature.
Wearable tech today helps us feel closer to our bodies, to our accomplishments, setbacks and for some, these gadgets are a source of constant motivation to achieve new personal goals. With meticulous tracking capabilities, offering almost full-body performance monitoring, these could be an ideal partner for your Versaclimber workout.
In a world where ‘screen is king’, the Moov Now stands out from competitors because it has no screen. Instead, the device is controlled solely by its dedicated app, which, according to Techradar’s recent review, is one of the ‘most accurate’ and ‘clearly displayed’ on the fitness market today.
The app contains a series of workouts, from ‘7+ minute circuit training’, run coaching and boxing rep-based training, to drills including press ups and crunches – all delivered verbally by the app. Why not try these to spice up your interval training sessions on the Versaclimber?
Mobvoi Ticwatch E
For rougher, more intense exercises, the Ticwatch E acts as a robust training companion. Built to support hikers, long-distance walkers and skiers, this brand is new to market, at a cost of £145.99, but has taken off with those seeking the best preparation for a physical challenge.
Many sports wearables today rely on users carrying their phones with them at all times, sometimes limiting movement or even leading to a damaged phone screen. The Ticwatch E gives you independence – this watch doesn’t require your phone to be in close proximity to accurately track your progress.
The beauty of this device is its ability to track both leg and arm activity independently on its 1.4” display screen. A drawback to other devices is inaccurate step tracking, incorrectly combining the legs and arms movement leading to misleading results: the Ticwatch combats this by providing separate trackers allowing users to follow their progression closely.
Garmin Vivoactive 3
Last but not least on our list, is the Garmin Vivoactive 3. The most interactive, and expensive of the three, at £259.99, the Vivo keeps track of a wide range of physical movements – from wrist heart rate, stress and step tracking, to sleep monitoring, intensity minutes and floors climbed.
The Vivoactive 3 also tracks the development of certain muscle groups through the sensors on the back of the device, sending your daily statistics back to your app to be compiled into tidy graphs. If you’re looking to track your progress, strap on the device and hop on the Versaclimber Home; built to primarily target muscle groups such as the arms and legs, or ideal for a full body workout.
However you choose to train, keeping track of your physical progress could help you attain your personal goals and provide you with a burst of motivation. Want to see how a Versaclimber can help take your fitness to the next level?
