Technology is infamous for having turned us into couch potatoes and for having limited our worlds to small screens of iPads and still smaller screens of iPad minis and iPhones. But then there is this other side to technology that can totally contribute to keeping you healthy. Although little known of, there are gadgets that help monitor fitness if their features are optimized and a sunny view of the gadget world is taken. Of course, the gadgets won’t run on your behalf, but they sure can help you plan and organise your run.
There is plenty technology out there to aid your training regime and get your out and about.
GPS Sports watches
GPS sports watches record distance, time and pace so you can keep a check on your work outs. Some versions of these watches also include heart rate monitors, so you can conveniently keep a check on your cardio activity. What’s more, you can even see the route you have travelled, on a map. The rechargeable batteries make this gadget an apt running companion.
When it comes to meeting a time goal for a run, a pace calculator is the device to own. Pace setters help keeping a steady stamina throughout the race, if you want to maintain pace and keep strong all the way to the finish line and not lose towards the end because your energy reserves have been zapped due to lack of pace.
Marathon photography can be a lot of fun, specially considering the variety of emotions and outfits at display. There is such a mixed range of emotions to capture in a marathon setting, that it will add that much more depth to your pictures. However, it is also a challenging location to shoot in, so therefore it is very important to carry an apt camera and lens.
With so much tech and gadgetry to choose from, all you need to do now is get off that couch and make a lifestyle change.
