What’s New in Health-Tech: Keep Your Summer Fitness Goals on Track

Staying healthy is a worthwhile goal throughout the year, but becomes particularly important to Canadians during the Summer months. Maybe it’s because we’re more inclined to exercise outdoors in nice weather, or maybe it’s because we’re spending a little more time in a bathing suit… Whatever the reason, we’re ecstatic to see new health-tech devices entering the market to help all Canadians achieve their fitness goals and lead healthier lives.

If the techiest thing about your workout regime is a treadmill, don’t worry – you’re not alone. In a sea of new health-tech devices flooding the market, it can be difficult to select the right device which merits an investment of both your time and money. Here’s an overview of a few new devices on the market and how they may be able to help you achieve your fitness goals.

If you’re a brave enough soul to buy a “smart” scale, you stand to gain a lot of insight into your current bill of health. For example, the Nokia Body Composition Wi-Fi Scale measures “body fat percentage, body mass index, body water percentage, bone mass, and muscle mass instantly”. By connecting your scale to your home Wi-Fi, you can also take advantage of an automatic Bluetooth connection which synchronizes your scale with your smartphone in order to share nutrition tracking information. The best part – you can track your health stats over time to monitor your progress and help you stay on track.


2. Fitness Wristbands


By now, most of us have at least heard the term “Fitbit” – whether you own one yourself, or have seen one on the wrist of a neighbour or family member. What you may not know is that the company has released many new trackers with different features, ranging from basic step counting, to reminders to move, to on-screen workouts. Not sure which is right for you? There’s a quiz for that.


3. Sleeping Apps

Ok, you caught us – sleeping isn’t an exercise, but getting enough of it is a critical factor in your overall health equation. Fortunately, in recent years there have been many technological developments that enable you to monitor your sleep patterns more effectively, and improve sleep quality so you can wake up feeling more rested. The Sleep Cycle App is just one example of a sleep tracking app that will do this for you. By monitoring your sleep cycles, the app’s alarm will wake you up during your lightest sleep phase to make getting out of bed less painful in the morning. You can also track your sleep quality to identify and get to the root of any sleep issues you may be experiencing. Now that’s cause for sweet dreams.
