One of the best things about the fusion of fitness and technology is the ability to know when your workout is finished and how well you performed.
Whether your goal is related to time or distance, quantity of reps or quality of overall workout, real-time tracking data is a powerful tool.
For tracking to work, you first need an objective going in. Without a clear target in mind, you’ll be left wondering: Was that enough? Did I pace myself well? Could I, should I have done more?
Once the goal is established, you want to know precisely how you did – to quantify your progress. Digital tools make it easy to do just that. Whether it’s an UP wristband counting your steps or a Koko Smartrainer pacing each strength exercise and putting a number on your performance, you come away knowing how close you actually came to your goals.
Even if you weren’t perfect – and how many of us ever are? – the knowledge itself is satisfying. Data makes every workout more meaningful and relevant, so you always have reason to say: Mission accomplished.
