How to Properly Use Your Fitness Tracker Data | Man of Many

Like we said earlier: it all began with the steps. The truth of the matter is that it’s insanely easy not to get enough steps in every day, especially when so many of us work at computers for hours at a time. Sure, the little things like walking from work to your car add up, but usually fall short in terms of meeting daily targets.

Track Your Steps

If you’re trying to lose weight, there are no two metrics more valuable than calories consumed and calories burned. And while the G-SHOCK Connected app can’t perform some sort of futuristic calorie scan on all the food you’re eating, it can accurately determine how many calories you’re burning a day. In other words, you cover the calories consumed, and the G-SHOCK Connected app will cover calories burned. The rest is just mathematics.

Count Your Calories

What began with steps could very well end with a full-blown training routine. To that end, the G-SHOCK GBA800 has you covered. Featured on the gadget is a 1/100-second stopwatch, which can store up to 200 lap-time memories and up to 10 target time alarms. Use the stopwatch for elapsed time, lap times, and lap/split time switching.

Get Your Train On

The key to proper fitness is a routine or regimen, period. That doesn’t mean you can’t cheat on the weekends, or take the occasional day off. However, it does mean that you should nail down a pattern and stick with it. In other words, if you’re going to take a day or two off, make that part of the pattern by taking those days off at the same interval every week. By firmly establishing a routine, your mind and body will follow suit.
