What Technology Is Up And Coming In The Smart Fitness Industry


In this more high tech world that we are now living in the fitness industry seems to be at the forefront of innovative new technologies and how they can take your workout to the next level. At Simply Gym we take a look at the up and coming tech which can enhance your workout!

Smart Watches

Fitness watches, such as FitBit or Garmin are hugely popular due to their continuing expansion and developing technologies. The major plus of having one of these watches is the accountability which comes with wearing one. They make sure that you are hitting the targets that you are wanting to hit. Furthermore, the goals which are implemented on the watches can be specific for the individual. This means they are always specific for you and your needs. Some of the watches enable added features such as weather, texts or calls.

Smart Water Bottles

Though it seems one of the simplest things we often forgot to drink enough water during the day. It is important to drink water normally and during exercise because we are made up of 60% water! By ensuring you are drinking enough, it will keep both your skin and body healthy as well as helping to regulate your body temperature. Finally, it has been indicated that having sufficient water helps to boost your workout. There are now water bottles available which can alert you when you haven’t picked up your water bottle for a while, such as Ozmo, therefore keeping you on track to ensure you are in-taking enough water. On the other hand there is the possibility of getting water bottles with written intake indicators on them, saving a few pennies…….

Smart Headphones

Gone are the days when you have tangled headphone cable every time you reach into your gym bag. There are now a wide variety of smart headphones which use Bluetooth connectivity and offer wire free and sweat resistant solutions. These smart headphones can be either cheap, such as Sonys, or if you want a higher end option, Bose
