If you are anything like me a couple of months before you are about to embark on your holiday, you start to ramp up your fitness routine in an attempt to be your best for your holiday, only to have it all unravel whilst you sit poolside sipping cocktails.
I mean I try whilst I am on a family holiday to go for a walk along the beach or do some laps in the pool. But I always come home a couple of kilos heavier.
So for our latest family holiday to Bali I tried to keep track of my efforts.
To do this I went to the Mobile Zap fitness category and looked through their selection of smart watches and smart bands.
Now at this point I would really suggest you do your research prior to buying a smart fitness device. Consider everything that you will be doing and whether your smart fitness device can match your needs.
I didn’t and chose the Sony Smart Band. To start with this smart band requires the latest Android 4.4 to use all the features (I only have Android 4.3 and was not able to fully use this smart band).
The other problem with this smart band is that it is only water-resistant not water proof so I couldn’t use it whilst in the pool, therefore not giving a true indication of all my activity.
Plus it needed to be charged every couple of days thereby not measuring my sleep every night.
However I could count my steps as we strolled along the beach.
And add my activity when we went on a cycling tour through central Bali.
As I said, this was my error in not doing enough research prior to choosing the Sony Smart Band and assessing whether it would meet all my needs.
However Mobile Zap have plenty of other options so just have a look around.
It was interesting to note at the end of the holiday that whilst I walk to the shops and along the beach most days it is not enough to keep those cocktails and the delicious buffet breakfasts from adding on a couple of kilos.
Of course now that I am back home, I am using the smart band to ensure I reach my 10 000 steps a day to knock of those kilos quick smart 🙂
How do you stay fit while travelling?
