Future of fitness trackers

There are a gazillion fitness apps in the industry, which is why we’ve consolidated a guide to help you find the one that suits you best. These apps and accessories have now become an integral part of a fitness enthusiast’s life, which is why, be it in the form of smartwatches, activity trackers, fitness bands or calorie counting apps, they are here to stay and will continue to evolve to be the next best thing.

This explains why brands like Samsung and Microsoft are currently in the spotlight. So far, Microsoft’s health app was a closed platform; but, not any more. It plans to open the mobile health app to count your steps and monitor the calories you burn, which will be logged in, and backed up on Microsoft’s cloud. The data will be collected with the help of the sensors in your phone. In a couple of weeks Android, iOS and Windows phone users can avail of the revolutionary app, which requires no band or physical accessory to give you a 360 degree experience.

On the other hand, Samsung has just applied for a patent for a lightweight, super-slim fitness tracking band that will concentrate on health. Synced with your smartphone, it’s more about comfort in the minimized proportions with this one.

Also, only recently we sounded you off about Jawbone’s UP4, which helps you make cashless payments (like a credit card), while being a functional activity tracker. With so many advancements in both technology and design, the world of fitness continues to excite and have us waiting with bated breath.
