That is really good and I agree, the apps and everything we have access to makes it so much easier; however, I definitely think the tools have been around long enough and if someone were looking to "get fit" then making an excuse that they were waiting for an iPhone iWatch deal is just silly.I've been using a fitness tracker and apps since last Christmas, and lost half half of the weight I wanted to loss. Keeping track of all the food I eat is the biggest help there. Sure I could do that without the technology, but it makes it easier.
I think the iPhone 6 will keep track of more things concerning your health WITHOUT a watch.Curious if you guys are overweight and are awaiting a gadget to help you get you off your butt
Sometimes technology motivates people
I don't think the quotes I'm seeing above are really representative of people who "get it" in terms of the role technology can have in improving our health. Yes, it is not a magic bullet. Yes, people will have to put forth some kind of effort on their part. But every hurdle that can be cleared is one less for them to trip over as they travel that path.You have to be motivated/want yourself to lose weight, a watch or an App isn't going to magically fix it.
People that will benefit from it likely haven't tried anything else. It wasn't until I got my iPhone that I started counting calories with an app. Its not that I was overweight I was just more concerned with what I was eating (carbs, fat, protein). I could have figured it out manually.That is really good and I agree, the apps and everything we have access to makes it so much easier; however, I definitely think the tools have been around long enough and if someone were looking to "get fit" then making an excuse that they were waiting for an iPhone iWatch deal is just silly.
Assuming bluetooth. 200 feet, but more realistically 50 feet reliably. I don't think it would be designed to work without near immediate access to the device its connected too.I am already in the "superior" category in the fitness assessment. I will be a senior this fall under Kinesiology. So as a future p.e instructor and Coach i will find this iwatch pretty useful.
That way i can leave the phone in my gym bag and just carry the watch in practices. Only thing that concerns me is the range of bt for receiving text messages.
I would also like for it to include different profiles so more than one person can use it
I agree. If they are as big as other iwatches you will be constantly beating your precious watch on every thing you walk by. Devices worn by humans will always take a beating.I think not. You can't go swimming with a gadget in your hand and these mobile products don't last long enough to live an active lifestyle.
