Staying fit and healthy has always been a top priority of mine since I was not fortunate enough to be born healthy, due to birth defects, which were corrected during my childhood. The doctors told my folks to “treat him just like a normal child now.” Oh, in the last few years, my wife introduced me to the Fitbit device, (a type of smart watch) since her company gives employees discounts on medical insurance if they are able to meet certain health goals. And by the way, the company product is called Fitbit.
The reason I told you about my childhood is that this Fitbit devices helps you greatly monitor your health and activities. I have worn one and it is pretty cool how it works. Well, with that said, let me introduce you to Fitbit, if you have not heard of such a device before. I will describe some of the types of devices they carry. Oh, one more thing – they also have a smart scale to help you keep the best track of your fitness needs.
There are three different types of devices in this family. I will list each ones functions and name and you can see which one would fit your needs and decide if you’d like to purchase one. I will start with a type called VERSA LITE EDITION. The functions are: Tracks Steps & calories, Sleep tracking, 24/7 heart rate, 4+ day battery life, Swimproof,15+ exercise modes, Real-time pace & distance, Notifications, Apps & clock faces, and Female health tracking.
