Health Management – Everybody knows a good fitness tracker can help you manage your fitness program. It monitors your workout, your gum sessions and time running.

But did you know most fitness trackers can be used to manage your health too?

With features such as Sleep monitor, Blood pressure and heart rate you can measure and manage your health very efficiently.

Sleep Monitor – Health Management

Sleep Monitor

Sleep is critical to your health and wellness. It is well know a good nights sleep help you function better in all parts of your life. Decision making, and brain function are proven to be far better after a good night’s sleep.

On the other side, when you don’t sleep so well you have the reverse effect. Some have compared the state you’re in after a lack of sleep to being under the influence of alcohol. All your cognitive skills are impaired through poor sleeping.

Sleep monitors are an important part of Health Management. They vary in the features they offer but the better ones offer basic features you need to manage your sleep. You need to look for the following features:

  • Sleep Cycle
  • Heart Rate
  • Inactivity Alert
  • Sleep time
  • Blood Pressure

A good night’s sleep has been scientifically proven to be beneficial to our health.

“Sleep affects almost every tissue in our bodies,” says Dr Michael Twery, a sleep expert at NIH. “It affects growth and stress hormones, our immune system, appetite, breathing, blood pressure and cardiovascular health.” Research shows that lack of sleep increases the risk for obesity, heart disease and infections.

Inactivity Alert

The risk of being inactive doubles the risk of cardiovascular disease. It also increases the risk of experiencing anxiety or depression. Along with this is the risk of bowel and breast cancer as well as obesity and diabetes.

As you can see, having a inactivity alert in your fitness tracker will remind you to get moving.

Even if it is just stretching or just going for a walk, it is better than just sitting there doing nothing.

Heart Rate – Blood Pressure

We all know the wealth risks with high blood pressure but what about heart rate? Heart rate is very important when you are looking at aerobic exercise.

It is said when you exercise you need to lift your heart rate to a level and maintain it at that level for at least 20 minutes. You might ask what is that level. Well it is different for everybody.

My heart rate level for exercise is around 120 beats per minute but my son’s is more like 140.

The health benefits or regular aerobic exercise are wide-ranging. You can look at the list below to see exactly what they are

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better weight management
  • Reduce risk of heart attack
  • Lower blood cholesterol
  • Lower the risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Strengthen bones, muscles and joints

As you can see the benefits of regular exercise are extensive. This does not mean you need to be a marathon runner or an elite athlete. It can be a simple walk around the block, taking your pet for a run in the park or playing with the kids.
