Activity monitors are wearable devices that measure and record a person's level of activity. These devices measure multiple variables including heart rate, distance walked or run, calories burned, and even quality of sleep.
These devices can then transfer this information to a Smart Phone or computer wirelessly. The feedback from these devices can be helpful to motivate individuals to increase their activity. The devices also provide reminders (when the individual is wearing them) that they have been sedentary for too long of a period of time. The bottom line with all of this is that exercise has many physical and emotional benefits. If the use of one of these devices helps to increase your level of activity, then the investment will more than pay off in the long run.
