Use the power of technology to get moving and motivated.
Trying new workout classes, drinking more water, leaping out of bed earlier—whatever your personal mission, there’s an app or gizmo that can help you stick with it.
1 For monitoring your progress and managing time
The ultimate accountability partner, the Apple Watch is meant to be on your wrist 24/7 and track nearly everything you do—so you can count on this savvy device to help you stick to your goals. Not only does the multi-use smart watch act as a fitness tracker that monitors (and offers helpful insights) on your heart rate, step count, activity minutes, and more, but you can also choose to receive calls, texts, calendar reminders, and any other notifications from your smart phone.
This new-and-improved version of the popular Apple watch includes even more advanced features like automatic workout detection and the ability to see five training metrics (of your choosing) in just one glance.
2 For hands-free reminders
Turn any fitness tracker into a health coach by syncing it with the newest version of the Echo Dot, Amazon’s completely interactive, customizable, and hands-free speaker. The feature lets you ask Echo’s voice assistant, Alexa, questions like “What’s my step count?” She’ll give a response along with a nudge. (“Take a walk, but don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.”)
3 For morning motivation
Wake up to guided meditations and start your day on the right foot with Meditation Studio, an Alexa add-on app that's compatible with any Amazon Alexa devices (like your Echo Dot, above) and free to download. No matter the time of day or your current mood—whether you're anxious, tired, unmotivated, or trying to fall asleep—all you have to do is say "Alexa, ask Meditation Studio to help me" and the voice activation will prompt you to choose between one of 500 guided meditations available through the app. We all know that a successful fitness routine starts with our brains, so give yours the TLC it deserves.
4 For smart cardio
Meet the Rookie Smart Rope, one of the most tech-savvy pieces of fitness gear we've seen yet. The adjustable jump rope offers an efficient way to get your daily cardio in and monitor fitness levels directly from the "smart rope", like the number of jumps performed and calories burned. It uses Bluetooth to bring insights directly to your smartphone through the corresponding SmartRope app that's free to download on your Apple watch and iOS or Android device. Plus, you can compete with other SmartRope users, complete guided interval workouts, and unlock rewards to make cardio more fun.
