Let’s proceed to the list of the easiest fitness trackers to use without phone for seniors. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice. Scientific American defines a fitness tracker as a gadget that “allow[s] us, mere untrained mortals, to gauge what only doctors used to measure.” All types and brands of fitness trackers count steps, including the Health app on your iPhone, but now there are so many options for the different things fitness trackers can manage. Unsurprisingly, the more expensive trackers tend to have more functions and durability. For example, there are trackers that can monitor heart rate, perspiration, body mass, sleep quality, and even blood oxygen levels. The more functions they offer, the higher the price generally is.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two of the easiest fitness trackers to use without phone for seniors from their list.
The first one is Garmin Forerunner 235. Functions: GPS for distance measurement when running, optical heart rate sensor, steps tracking, calorie tracking. This has a heftier price tag, but you can be sure it’s packed with great fitness functions. The Garmin Forerunner 225 was popular in 2015, and this sequel is even better. The band is more comfortable and it has a sleeker design. It’s also water resistant, which is great for washing your hands or getting caught in the rain. The second one should be Microsoft Brand 2. Functions: step counter, heart rate, calorie burn tracking, sleep tracking, great companion in any sport (e.g. golf, gym, cycling, running). With 11 sensors to track all your fitness goals, both seniors and millennials (and everyone in between) are bound to find this a treasure. According to Tech radar, this has “a barometer to measure altitude and track stairs and hills climbed, plus an accurate optical heart rate sensor, 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS, ambient light sensor, skin temperature sensor, UV sensor, capacitive sensor, microphone and a galvanic skin response sensor.” Definitely deserves a place on our list of easiest fitness trackers to use without phone for seniors, right? The battery lasts for two days, perfect for anyone who might forget to charge it occasionally, and the interface is user-friendly. If you want an all-around fitness tracker, this is definitely one to check out.
