Looking to get fit and improve your health? Let technology help keep you on track

One of the best ways to stay healthy is to keep fit and exercise frequently.

If you’ve resolved to spend more time in the gym or train in the great outdoors, here are some great bits of kit to improve and track your workout.

It links to your smartphone and monitors your heart rate, day-to-day activity, and sleep pattern, while offering you on-screen workouts and stat breakdowns in an app. The smartwatch design looks more casual than other tracker bands, with a battery that lasts up to five days.
