There are three primary uses for Fitbits to enhance your beauty — one is to improve your fitness, the other to improve your sleep, and the third to track your hydration levels. However, there’s a new dimension – you no longer have to walk around counting your steps while looking like you’re about to do a triathlon. What’s been on the market to-date is not exactly the perfect accessory for a business suit or little black evening dress, but that’s all changing.
Fitbits for Health
Fitbits are essentially wireless-enabled wearable technology devices designed to measure data such as the number of steps walked a day (10,000 steps is the standard goal set), heart rate, quality of sleep, steps climbed, and other personal metrics involved in fitness. These high-energy, ultra-effective activity trackers are basically used for everything from cardio training to sculpting, strength plans, boosting metabolism, melting fat, and discharging calories.
Fitbits for Sleep
It’s no secret that getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night is ideal and an important part of one’s beauty regime. No matter how many expensive products you layer on your face, lack of sleep shows and for extended periods is not healthy. Skin gets dehydrated, puffy bags appear under the eyes, and sleep disorders may signal other health problems. Fitbits have a sleep-tracking feature, which gives you a report of your sleep every morning: the number of hours asleep, bedtime, wakeup time, and even sleep quality. It also helps you figure out a daily bed time with a 30 minutes reminder that it’s time to start wrapping it up for the night so you don’t regret another late night the next day.
Fitbits for Hydration
Another great beauty-beneficial use of Fitbits is the hydration tracker that makes it easy to record water intake with a quick add option of 250ml, 500ml or 750ml on the app. Making a point of drinking at least 8 glasses a day keeps one’s skin and body looking great. Even if you cannot keep up, the app makes it convenient to record your water intake with just a few taps on the screen.
It was only a matter of time before Fitbit producers realized that women didn’t want to wear high-tech looking gadgets to important business meetings or evenings out. Several companies have come out with incredible sleek Fitbits with everything from lighter designs in uber-cool colors to clip on covers that look like jewelry featuring everything from etched floral motifs with exquisite detail to bracelets with bling and standout cuffs for a modern, bohemian chic look.
