Pair a smartphone with the right accessory and student-athletes can get an edge when it comes to getting the most out of their health and fitness routine.
These gadgets can help athletes train better by informing them about their diet and sleep patterns and suggesting new goals to move forward. They can also play music in the sweatiest conditions to keep student-athletes pumped and protected.
Having a fit support system can help give student-athletes that extra push. With the Garmin vívofit activity tracker, not only can student-athletes track their physical exertion and sleep habits, but they’ll also gain access to an online community through its compatible app. Athletes can spice up their workout by finding new running or biking trails, plus challenge friends and get suggested new goals.
See stats at a glance right from their wrist on vívofit’s display, plus get alerts when sitting for too long. It’s adjustable and water-resistant.
This wristband and supporting smartphone app help track movement, distance traveled, eating habits, calories burned and sleep patterns. The water-resistant band is slim, stylish and comfortable.
Flex is designed to be worn around the clock, and its battery stays charged for up to five days. It’s great for helping set fitness goals, and sharing accomplishments with friends can help motivate a student athlete to do more.
Don’t want to wear a wristband? Recording fitness progress is easy with this convenient tracker that clips easily on a belt or clothing. It tracks steps, distance run and calories burned, and with its compatible app, a student athlete can log meals, set goals and share triumphs. Even compete with other Fitbit users to help stay motivated.
