After my doctor’s appointment yesterday, I’m motivated to continue moving in the right direction in regards to my health. The biggest thing I have to work on is my weight and blood pressure.
These can be overwhelming to work on, but there are tools available to help keep people motivated. These tools come in the form of apps and activity trackers. While they aren’t required to lose weight, they do make things a bit more fun and efficient.
I’ve used many different activity trackers from Jawbone up, FitBit, Basis and the entire Samsung Gear series.
Most do pretty much the same thing. The main difference is the device’s corresponding app and how the app integrates or shares data with other third party apps like myfitnesspal.
Recently, Nokia sent me the Steel activity and sleep tracker. I’m going to be using this to see how well it works and use it as part of my daily weight-loss program.
It’s a very simple, yet elegant device. The watch itself is 36mm and a bit small for my liking, but what it does, it seems to do very well.
The corresponding Health Mate app is hands down the best app I’ve ever used to track my health. I’ve used trackers that monitor more things but the app is nowhere near as amazing or user friendly as Health Mate.
I’m going to begin using this tracker and follow up with a full review in the near future.
