So You Bought Your Fitness Tracker. Now what?
If you’ve recently bought a fitness tracker, chances are that you’ve run into a problem or two using it. If you haven’t, the rest of us hate you and your perfect world. Some of you will also be wondering, “How the hell do I use this thing?”, which is also an acceptable question. Those that are super tech-savvy and need 30secs to know the ins and outs flawlessly, don’t worry we hate you too. I’ve seen many questions, thoughts, and concerns for our wearable tech. Together I’ve compiled a list that will hopefully alleviate some of these questions.
1 – Check your settings. There are a lot of fitness trackers out there. A lot. There are also a lot of people. People of all sorts of shapes and sizes. Given that fact, not every fitness tracker will work for you like it does for someone else. If you find yourself with one that isn’t working exactly as you want it to, what should you do? You can certainly return it and get a new one, but that doesn’t always solve your problems and is a hassle. So before you run back to the store, try checking the settings. One setting you can easily tweak is the dominant/non-dominant hand setting. Almost every tracker will have that option.
If you find your tracker to be too sensitive or not enough, you can try messing with the settings to find your sweet spot. For myself, I have the settings set on the dominant wrist setting even though I’m wearing my Fitbit Charge HR on my non-dominant hand. Ideally you won’t need to tweak the settings, but unfortunately, you’ll find that some trackers don’t always behave the way you want them to.
2 – Set realistic goals. Most fitness trackers come standard with the 10,000 steps a day goal. I don’t know about you, but for me when I first started that goal was much too high for me to reach (Yes I know I was lazy, but you gotta start somewhere). A lot of people that buy a fitness tracker do it as motivation to finally get off the couch. Staring at your step-count not move for hours at a time will do that to you. However, for some people, it’s not a realistic option. Finding yourself only hit 5,000 steps can be a bit depressing when you’re seeing yourself miss your mark every day.
Luckily, most trackers come with the option of editing that goal. Instead, try setting it to 6,000 or 7,000 and try to reach for that. You’ll be rewarded with all the encouragements your tracker likes to throw at you when you hit your goals, which hopefully will inspire to push on ahead. Sure most people will tell you to just “man up” or “tough it out you lazy slob!” (Thanks dad!), but the reality is that this behavior leads to a lot of people quitting. Sometimes taking baby steps towards improving yourself is the best way to go rather than getting frustrated and quitting altogether. Everyone is different and everyone moves at a different pace and thankfully there are options for both sides.
3 – Pay attention to anything you have to manually turn on/off. This is a long one, but it’s still important. While many trackers like the Fitbit Charge HR do sleep mode automatically, a lot of trackers don’t. Many have it to where you have to manually push or hold a button to activate sleep mode. Is it annoying? Definitely. Oftentimes while wearing the Vivosmart, I would find myself forgetting to either turn on sleep mode or turn it off, leaving my sleep tracking data to be super funky and completely incorrect (No Vivosmart, I did not sleep for 16 hours straight!).
Even though it is a bit of a hassle, try to get into a habit of turning sleep mode on and off before you sleep and after you wake up. Same goes for tracking specific exercises. On the Fitbit, you can hold down the button and it’ll start a stopwatch, logging all activities during your workout. If you’re like me, you tend to forget you turned it on and then when you go check your activity on the app, you suddenly find yourself in the middle of a 3-hour workout session. Remembering to do all of these things manually is an annoyance, but an annoyance that can be easily remedied.
4 – Calibrate your stride. You just ran 5 miles, you’re proud of yourself and you just tweeted to the whole world about your accomplishments! You feel great! Then you look at the accompanying MapMyRun app and turns out you only ran 3.5 miles. What happened? You didn’t input your stride length. Unfortunately, most people will skip this part when you’re inputting your personal info in your settings because most people don’t know what their stride length really is. Your fitness tracker will try to calculate it for you based on your height and weight, but that’s not always accurate.
There are a few ways you can do this and they all pretty much boil down to walk/run a certain distance and divide by the number of steps. So say you walked ¼ of a mile (1,320 feet) and it took you 450 steps, you would divide 1320/450 to equal 2.93 feet or 35.20 inches (multiply by 12) per stride. Try this multiple times as well for best accuracy and use the average number. So where should you do this? If you own a treadmill, you can do it right inside your home. If not, you can go to your local track, which is always ¼ mile.
If you don’t have access to any of those, then crank out the tape measurer and you can do a much smaller version counting out 10 steps. Walk 10 steps, measure the distance and divide the distance by 10. It won’t give you the most accurate of readings, but it’s better than nothing. If you don’t have a tape measurer, a treadmill, a local track or park, then all hope is lost for you, my friend. My condolences.
5 – Join a community. Seriously, just do it. Not trying to rip off Nike, but if there’s one thing that pushes people forward, it’s beating your friend into submission…by beating his step-count. (No violence!) One of the best things that most companies include is that you can join others and hold competitions and challenges. I have a few friends who also wear a Fitbit and the added competition makes it a great motivation tool to get you moving. When you see Suzy beating you by a few thousand steps, you bet you’re going to get off that couch to try and catch up (Seriously? Suzy of all people is beating you?). You really can’t go wrong in joining one. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone!
8 – Be honest. Seriously, don’t be that guy. Try to be as accurate as possible when it comes to input your weight, height and daily food intake. Don’t shake your arm like a mad man for 10 minutes just to get your step count up. Don’t pretend you’re 6ft tall when you’re really 5’10”. Don’t I know when you’re competing, sometimes it makes you do crazy things. We’ve all been there. This time though, don’t do it. Don’t be that guy! I can’t stress that more, especially since we live in a world of hyperboles and superlatives. Like the cliche says, “You’re only hurting yourself” but in this instance it’s true. Your fitness tracker is there to motivate you to be more active, not turn you into that guy that cheats at Monopoly.
