Data is crucial for any part of business. It allows you to track wins and losses, as well as gain insight into areas for improvement, expansion, and growth. If you consider fitness to be the business of your health, you can use data to understand many aspects of your overall well-being. Over the past decade, fitness technology, more specifically data tracking, has become a booming industry as individuals are taking their health, wellness, and fitness more seriously.

Enter fitness trackers. Fitness trackers are wearable technology that enables you to measure several distinct health factors, such as heart rate, steps taken, sleep quality, and a multitude of other exercise and workout data.

The FightCamp Trainers are experts when it comes to wearable tech, but with so much available, it’s hard to know where to start. Here they break down some of the more popular options for fitness trackers on the market today.
