My vivosmart HR+ has been a total lifesaver! I absolutely love using the Health App on my phone to track my daily steps, but there's one catch – when I switched back to working in retail and eventually started working from home, I realized I wasn't always carrying my phone with me. So, a bunch of my steps weren't being counted. It was quite frustrating, to be honest.
But you know what? My Garmin came to the rescue! It's been doing a fantastic job in the meantime before I get my hands on an Apple Watch.
UPDATE: I actually managed to score an Apple Watch using the rewards points on my credit card! Now, I'm completely in awe of the seamless connectivity between my watch and my phone. I can even answer calls without actually knowing where my phone is. Trust me, it's a real game-changer, especially when I tend to misplace my phone quite often. Thanks to the nifty phone finding feature on my watch, it's no big deal anymore! (I wrote a blog post about it here
Here's the thing – I've noticed that on the days I don't wear my watch, I tend to be way more sedentary. But with this amazing watch, I've got a built-in reminder to move function that's fully customizable to keep me active throughout the day. Plus, it syncs with my phone, so I never miss any important notifications. Back when I was working in retail, this feature was a lifesaver because it would discreetly let me know if something urgent popped up without interrupting my flow.
But here's the real kicker – whenever I have my watch on, I find myself challenging my own steps record. The rush of dopamine I get when I hit 10,000 steps is unbeatable, and let me tell you, the celebratory notification I receive is icing on the cake! And you know what's even better? Every once in a while, it tells me I've doubled my daily goal. Talk about an amazing sense of accomplishment! Whichever smart device you choose, having a wearable is a game changer.
