Invest in Your Health with a Smartwatch as Your Fitness Partner
It’s the holiday season, and that only means one thing: celebrations here and there with your different circles—colleagues, friends, family, etc. It’s the best time, indeed. That also means lots of delicious foods and drinks to share and enjoy. And we have to admit that we go all out during these times and can’t help but cheat on our diet. But don’t be guilty, you’re not alone.
Instead of feeling guilty, practice control and find the right balance. Be grateful, savor the moment, and when you finally have the time to burn those calories, do it with intent. Invite your partner or your friend. One thing you could change this New Year is instead of listing down your goals at the last minute and saying things that will only leave you feeling annoyed with yourself, be composed and have a fresh perspective and say that you are in control. Having a healthy relationship with your body and building discipline does wonders. Set limitations but not too much that it completely restricts you.
And to help you keep tabs on your progress, invest in a Garmin smartwatch as your lifestyle and fitness partner. Explore its features that will help you in your journey towards wellness.
Garmin smartwatch as your fitness partner
Instinct, one of Garmin’s GPS smartwatches, is built to break convention, conquer the elements, and endure longer by harnessing the power of the sun. You get to experience unprecedented battery life with solar charging. With how long the battery lasts, you can focus on doing what you love more and still have that fitness partner with you throughout the day. You can also train smarter with built-in sports apps right on your wrist and get notifications straight from your phone.
Sports and Workout Apps
If you’re into sports, with just a tap on your smartwatch, you can use preloaded activity profiles for surfing, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, and more! You can also check out workout apps including HIIT, yoga, cardio, and strength training. You can train indoors or outdoors. This smartwatch is built to be accessible and easy for you to use. You can also set workout reminders and interact with Garmin Connect.
Health Monitoring and Tracking
It’s important to know how your body is responding to your activities. Knowing the state of your body through the data generated by your smartwatch helps you be aware of your progress, the areas you need to work on, and what you need to lessen.
Instinct has a wrist-based heart rate that comes with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It allows you to gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater. It has Pulse Ox for altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring. A Pulse Ox2 sensor uses light beams to assess how well your body is absorbing oxygen. Stress tracking focuses on heart rate variability and is used to calculate your stress level score so you can see if you’re having a calm, balanced, or stressful day. Body battery monitoring energy optimizes your body’s energy reserves and uses heart rate variability, stress, sleep, and other data to determine when you’re ready to be active or when you need to rest.
Investing in your health with a smartwatch as your fitness partner is great, especially with the features it comes with. But you have to remember that what’s really important is that you have the commitment and determination to achieve your goals. It’s about your habits, building control, and having a healthy and clear perspective on your relationship with your body and mind.
Garmin empowers lifestyle through a wearable that advocates health and wellness to people from all walks of life and tells them it’s possible to keep working and training to beat yesterday. At the end of every day, the competition is within you. So invest in your health. Choose Garmin.
