An Activity Tracker is a good support tool on the way to a healthy lifestyle. You can carry the Activity Tracker all day with you, around the wrist (it also has a time and date mode, so you can use it as a watch). Because you take the Activity Tracker with you all day, you always have insight into the "basic" health measurements. That way you can easily read out measurements at certain set times of the day or during certain activities. The Activity Tracker works together with the Wearfit app. In the app you get an overview of all measurements taken.
The Activity Tracker provides insight into the current blood pressure. Which blood pressure value should be pursued depends on personal data, such as age, gender, height, weight, medication, etc. Factors such as exercise, whether a meal has recently been consumed, mood, and the current state of mind have an effect on blood pressure. Consult with a doctor, nurse or coach about what value should be pursued for you.
In addition to blood pressure, the Activity Tracker also provides insight into the current heart rate. When you want to measure the current heart rate and you want to , you must always bear in mind that the activity you perform affects the heart rate.
Oxygen saturation, indicates the amount of oxygen in the blood. This concerns the amount of oxygen that is bound to the haemoglobin in the red blood cells. The higher the saturation, the better.
The pedometer measures the distance that is then covered. A guideline of 10,000 steps per day is often used. This corresponds to approximately 7 km (depending on the step size). It is a well-known fact that sufficient exercise benefits health. A daily portion of exercise ensures that one stays fit and also ensures that various diseases are prevented.
‘Calories’ are the measured value in which the energy that the body gets from food is displayed. The Activity Tracker provides insight into the calorie consumption; how many calories the body uses. This value depends on body measurements (height, weight) as well as the activities that one performs. Someone who sits still all day needs fewer calories than someone who is busy all day. How many calories are needed per day is personal. In addition to the amount of calories you consume, it is always advisable to also pay attention to the type of food you take in. For example, there is a difference between 2000 kcal of vegetables, fruit, dairy, etc. and 2000 kcal of fast food. For advice on this you can contact a GP, dietician or personal coach.
The Activity Tracker measures the duration and quality of sleep daily. Good sleep is needed to recharge body and mind. The body recovers, the muscles relax and the memory is saved. You prepare for a new day. In contrast, poor sleep (poor quality, too long or too short) increases the risk of developing conditions such as diabetes, obesity, depression and stroke in adults. Naturally, daily functioning is also adversely affected.
