Is A Fitness Tracker Really Worth It?

Fitness trackers are all the rage right now, but are they worth your hard earned money?

We all know that the future of fitness trackers and technology wearables is bright. So what is it, why are people hopping on the bandwagon of fitness trackers? Are fitness devices worth it? These are great questions and topics you should consider before your purchase. The answer is going to be unique to every single person. To determine whether or not a fitness band is a good investment for you, we have a few questions to ask. 

Worth It For What? 

So, if you are considering buying a fitness wearable, what do you want it to do for you? What would make it worth it for you? Each person has different needs when it comes to their health and fitness journey. While many features will carry over to a benefit for many individuals, features will make or break the worthiness of investing in a fitness tracker. You will want to think about which features will make it worth it for you, what will keep you engaged, checking in, and focused on improving your health for the long-term? Sure a new gadget is fun, but what will make you keep coming back each day?

What Is Your Objective? 

Are you a techie looking to admire the latest gadget? A fitness fanatic looking to calculate your every move, or someone who has begun their healthy journey? Answering this question will help you determine which fitness tracker may be the best fit. Prices range from under $20 to over $500 depending on what you want it to do for you. Are you a marathon runner looking to track your runs, a swimmer, a weekend warrior looking for accountability? You can see how each person will have different needs when it comes to which fitness tracker will best suit you. Once you have determined a fitness tracker is worth it, we have an excellent comparison tool to help you find your perfect fit. 

What Are Your Goals? 

It is pretty obvious that we support the use of fitness and health devices here at inKin, it is what our platform is about. However, our goal is not to convince you that you need a fitness tracker, our goal at inKin is to keep you using your fitness trackers. We all know getting a new gadget is fun for a few weeks, maybe months but then what happens? We take it off, and it lays on our nightstand for an unspecified amount of time. 

Thus, our goal is to provide a platform that is fun, engaging, and rewarding to be a part of, a bigger picture. So yes, we do believe a fitness tracker is worth it, no matter where you are in your journey. More importantly, we want to see you succeed in your endeavors that bring you to purchase a fitness tracker. We would like to rephrase the question to you, which fitness tracker is worth it? There are so many options to fit plenty of daily lifestyles. So find the one that works for you and jump on the inKin platform with both feet.  Or even simpler: if you are not sure if a fitness device will be a good investment, try free Moves pedometer or start with Fitbit and Withings apps to test the waters. We are a community ready to support your journey, bring your friends, family or co-workers and start some friendly competition while you improve your health! How can that NOT be worth it?
