I heard many people rave about their Apple Watch and share how much they loved it. I was skeptical at first. I had a hard time convincing myself to spend over $300 on a watch. And honestly, the main reason I wanted it was to play my music during my fitness classes at the gym. Seems like a silly reason to drop so much money on something, right?
I tried a few other products in hopes of achieving my need to play music from the watch, but none really worked so I finally decided to buy an Apple Watch,
While being able to control my music during class is absolutely amazing, I can’t believe how much I love the fitness features on my Apple Watch. I’m a little obsessed with tracking my workouts and my heart rate. I love all the data I can review and keep track of.
Another fitness portion I love on the Apple Watch is the “Activity” rings. I used to be obsessed with making sure I hit 10,000 steps on my fitness trackers. Since getting the Apple Watch, I have taken a step back from that and use the rings to focus on overall activity. Keeping track of calories and exercise has made me focus on more healthy habits than just getting steps. Plus, it’s like a game to close the rings each day, which makes it more fun.
Since using the Apple Watch, I’ve noticed I’ve been much more active and in to my fitness routine again. I motivated to workout or do something active so that I can keep my streak alive. Even if I’m taking a rest day, I find a way to get some activity in, even if that means just taking the dog on a walk.
There are so many other amazing features on the Apple Watch than just these fitness ones, but I have discovered that this is what I use my watch for the most. I’m so excited it use it at Zumba Convention this week.
