Benefits of Wearable Technology In Benefiting Your Fitness Journey

Apr 21, 2021

From Smartwatches To The NEW MZ-SWITCH, We’ve Got You Covered

There’s no doubt that we all live in a digital age that continues to advance (sometimes faster than we can keep up with), in which purchases are processed or accounts are activated at the touch of a fingerprint, text messages are delivered to our watches, and home electronics, appliances and sound-systems are controlled by the sound of our voice. And that’s just a few examples. And while much is said about the pitfalls of our growing addiction to all things electronic, we can’t minimize the wealth of benefits, particularly when it comes to wearable technology.

Many people in the modern world are now connected to a smart wearable device that helps them in monitoring their health and fitness to enable them to live a healthier lifestyle. I don’t know about you but I’m determined daily to close all 3 of my Activity Goals on My Apple Watch (Move, Exercise and Stand). The wearable technology enables individuals to monitor and keep track of their fitness journey from their mobile devices or cloud-based technology. The motion sensor technology in wearable gadgets can take pictures and sync them to your device to help you track your fitness through your mobile gadget.

Wearable technology uses rapid digitization in the modern world to enable you to manage your health and physical fitness. The availability of technology-backed and real-time data from the wearable devices helps its users to tap into their physical fitness. At FITNESS PROJECT®, we recommend various wearable devices to our members because of the convenience and accuracy of the raw data from wearable devices. Most notably, we have members that LOVE our MyZone-themed classes and challenges designed to help them monitor and earn Myzone Effort Points (MEPs) for every single type of physical activity thanks to the integration of both ECG and PPG sensors.

From smart watches to safety trackers, and now even NEW wearable technology like the MyZone Switch that you can wear on your chest, arm or wrist, we look at the advantages of wearable technology, and how we can harness them for our own health and wellbeing.

There’s little doubt that with the advancement of technology comes a huge increase in convenience for anyone who opts for wearable technology. While in years gone by popping out of the house to grab a coffee would have involved everything from a fitbit to a phone and wallet, these days you can sometimes do it all on one device.

Progress Monitoring

Wearable devices send data (statistics) to your device to keep track of your progress. For example, you can track your steps, sleep pattern and calories, etc.. Wearable Technology syncs with your smartphone and even Fitness Apps like the FITNESS PROJECT APP via Bluetooth so that you can see and analyze statistics before, during and after sessions. As an athlete, it’s always good to be able to actually see how many steps you’ve taken or how many miles you’ve run. If you’re trying to lose weight, you’ll easily see how many calories you’re burning through various workouts. On top of that, many wearables monitor your heart. Therefore, if something were to happen to your heart, you’ll know because these devices will alert you.

Motivation Boost

Almost fifty percent of those who begin a fitness program drop it after six months. These figures are not something to brag about. This usually happens due to lack of motivation. But, thanks to fitness tracking devices, you won’t wander off the path towards your fitness dreams. According to many studies, fitness tracking devices stimulate a hefty increase in fitness and physical activities for their wearers. These devices make workouts seem less like chores. Instead, your fitness routine looks like a game or fun activity.

Health and wellbeing

Few could dispute the fact that wearable technology often inspires a healthier life. Via wearable technology, you can do everything from monitoring your heart rate to keeping track of your menstrual cycle and tracking your step count – all of which give wearers the ability and know-how to increase their levels of health and well-being.


A wide variety of wellness apps and mobile health monitors are empowering individuals to monitor and analyze key health indicators like heart rate and activity and stress levels, and by promoting healthier lifestyle options, many are inspired to make healthier lifestyle choices. The innovative way self-tracking devices monitor not only an individual’s fitness journey, but overall health concerns such as sleep and diet are certainly shaking up the healthcare industry and by providing people with a more personal experience in terms of fitness and diet, there’s little question over the fitness benefits of wearable technology. Interested in learning more about the MZ-SWITCH, stop by the front desk at FITNESS PROJECT and learn about the world’s first interchangeable exercise tracker for the gym, outside and in the water that lets you monitor your heart rate on your chest, arm, or wrist.


The safety aspect to wearable technology is an integral benefit of the advancement of electronics, and it’s certainly true that some state-of-the-art wearables are potentially life-saving. Some even work by sending a notification to your next of kin as soon as you press a button, while some of them can even call the police on your behalf, without you needing to have a phone in your hand.

Although wearable technology offers a variety of benefits, the best way to get the results you are seeking is to join a gym that has a variety of fitness offerings to keep you inspired and motivated on your journey to being your best, a gym like FITNESS PROJECT, where you can get full access to our clean and beautiful facilities filled with top-of-the-line equipment, fitness experts leading cardio and strength classes, and a weight selection that would make any lifter envious!
