Technology has done wonders for our world, as we can easily type a question into a search engine and receive an answer in a matter of seconds. It has also helped the fitness world, as wearable technology now can help you see the numbers representing how far you walked, how many calories you ate, how well you slept, and more.
Wearable technology helps you visualize your progress if you have to walk up the stairs to your apartment, or took a walk break at work. Apps on mobile devices give you the information your watch or pedometer measures instantaneously and can keep you motivated to work harder at reaching your daily goals. Katie Warchol enthusiastically admits that her FitBit ramped up her weight loss.
