Recently I did a review on the Fitbit Surge and I thought it would be a good idea to review the app as well since it is where you can actually see the data that is collected by your Fitbit.
The Fitbit app is available on IOS and Android and if you don’t own a smartphone, there is also a desktop dashboard that you can install and use.
Once your Fitbit has synced with the app or dashboard, it easily lets you see the all of the stats that are available in an easy to read format. You can also track calories eaten by imputing the food that you’ve eaten and you can track how much water you have to drink to meet your daily goals.
For the goals you can either create them yourself or use the default goals that the app provides you. You can also connect with other Fitbit users and add them as friends to easily share results among each other. The Fitbit app also easily syncs with other fitness apps that you have on your phone that you’ve already been using. I personally use My Fitness Pal to track my food and that is then connect to my Fitbit app and they work together.
I haven’t found any flaws with the app at all and I highly recommended it. It works very well with the Fitbit devices (as it should).
If you guys and gals are anything like me, there’s something that makes a workout even more satisfying when you can see stats at the end. It gives us something to look at after a long workout and something for us to compare ourselves to in the future. The Fitbit Surge is what I use during my workouts and everyday life.
The Fitbit Surge is a great product but it does have a few downfalls that I’ll get to in a minute.
- GPS tracking for outside runs and hikes
- Heart rate monitoring
- Tracks steps, stairs and other daily activities
- Automatically detects when you begin doing an activity
- Long Battery life ( I get around 6 days with everyday regular use)
- Notifications of texts and phone calls when linked with smartphone
- Can be used to control music
- Tracks your sleeping patterns
- Syncs via Bluetooth to the Fitbit app
- Can be somewhat uncomfortable to wear if worn with long sleeves
- Is somewhat bulky
- Its steep price of 329.95 Canadian
For the most part I’m very happy with my Fitbit and I think it has really pushes me to perform when I’m working out. It pushes me to do just five more minutes of cardio or to do just one more set when I’m lifting. I can’t imagine my workout without it!
Just a quick blog update for you guys and gals. I’m getting into exam time for my university courses and that might mean that there are some days that I simply don’t have the time or mental energy to think of something to talk about. It’s only going to be for the next few weeks and then we’ll be back to normal.
Thanks for following my blog and I appreciate all the feedback that I recieve!
When I made my last supplement order, I decided to order one of these protein bars to try and I absolutely loved it! Not only is full of protein but it’s also gluten free. The perfect after workout snack!
They make six different flavours. I tried the chocolate peanut butter cup and it was really tasty. The only thing I wish was different is that the peanut butter taste isn’t very strong and I really love the taste of peanut butter so I would like that flavour to be stronger.
This isn’t an everyday treat though because of its high fat content and its steep price at 3.71 Canadian a bar but it is defiantly a delicious and healthy treat to be enjoyed occasionally!
I had a logo designed for the blog over the last couple of weeks and I just recieved the final copy. Let me know what you guys think!
Taking a multivitamin is probably the most important thing you should take whether you’re trying to lose weight, build muscle or just live your life. The body needs certain vitamins and minerals to function properly and if you are deficient in any of them, you’ll often feel tired and unmotivated.
I take Centrum for men but you can take anyone that you like. There are multivitamins that are tweaked for body building and exercise but their price is not worth the difference. Living a healthy life is largely about feeling good and a multivitamin a day is worth it. I use to have no energy and I had a really hard time getting going in the mornings so I started taking a multivitamin and I’ve noticed a lot of difference in how I feel.
If there is one thing that you should take for sure if you’re not going to buy any other vitamin or supplement, take a multivitamin. Just because you feel ok without them doesn’t mean you can’t feel great with them!
I’ve recently gotten to that point where when I step on the scale like I do once a week, I’m not seeing results in weight loss anymore. Even though I know I’m getting results and gaining muscle, it still can be somewhat discouraging when you still see a bit of fat on your body that should be going away and the number on the scale isn’t changing anymore. That doesn’t mean the fat isn’t going away, it just means that I’m building muscle as fast as I’m losing fat. The scale isn’t everything and you should take measurements of areas like your stomach so you have other things to base your weight off of.
I also went to the gym early today because one of my morning classes was canceled. It was a totally different experience because of the different people who are there in the mornings. If I didn’t like sleep so much, I would probably like going to the gym even more in the morning because the people who are there then are just working out and doing their own thing. They’re not obnoxious. They just want to work out and that’s what I liked the most.
