    From Google Glass to Apple Watch to Mistfit wearables, there are many options to choose from when it comes to wearable tech. With various celebrities endorsing 24 hour fitness equipment, you can’t stop contemplating whether or not you need this type of health-monitoring tech that you can wear 24 hours to track your body fitness activities.

    In a new study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the author revealed that there’s no way to tell the difference between one wearable tech to another.

    Even if one unit has various options, no one knows how they impact the gadget’s effectiveness.

    According to said study, the 24 hour fitness tools, goal-setting and self-monitoring tools in those wearable tech gadgets were similar to the recommendations given by doctors and other healthcare professionals as regards to encouraging individuals to increase physical activity.

    But these body fitness gadgets are short of some proven successful strategies, like action planning, commitment and instructions on how to perform those techniques to achieve a healthier body.

    Researchers of that study also revealed that the success of these wearable tech gadgets were dependent on the users’ preferences and the unit’s functionality.

    Although most users of these wearable tech gadgets are utilizing them to lose weight, researchers added that these gadgets could also be worn to monitor recovery and quality of life of patients who just got out of the hospital.

    Health care professionals could use the data provided by a body fitness gadget to know or identify if their patients are at risk of performing specific exercises. They could also use the details provided by a wearable tech in finding out if the prevention and rehabilitation routines are helping the patients improve their quality of life.

    Among the many body fitness trackers you can find online, the Misfit Wearables’ Shine seemed to shine. It can last 4 months and it is waterproof. Thus, you can use it for swimming.

    This is a type of a 24 hour fitness tracker that values style more than its functionalities. It’s the most eye-catching wearable tech you’ll find.

    But it’s not cheap. You can consider it as a wearable jewelry that tracks your every movement.

    It is easy to set up with tons of options for a small sport band. When it comes to durability, Misfit Wearables is one of the most robust body fitness trackers on the market. I can take this when I’m swimming or singing in the shower.

    This is a smart wearable tech that doesn’t come cheap. It costs around $100. In addition to recording your exercise routine, this wearable tech can also monitor your sleep patterns. Although it has a learning curve, it’s a great gadget for your every day fitness activity.

    Wrapping up

    Wearable tech is indeed a useful gadget if you want to effectively monitor your fitness activities. It offers 24-hour fitness monitoring and it can help your doctor assess your body fitness. Most of these gadgets offer an online fitness tracker to further check your progress. This is especially true if you’re undergoing rehab.
