Making the Most of Your Fitbit

Wearable fitness devices can track your steps, distance traveled, calories burned and, sleep patterns. In this link, I am cited talking about the effect wearables can have on the obesity epidemic. It is not enough just to observe the data being recorded by these devices, but instead, to shift the paradigm of technology and fitness, users must turn the data into actionable information by creating a baseline and working towards a goal based on that baseline. Wearables can help people visual their goals and watch how small changes lead to even greater changes.
