Get Fit With Wearable Tech

It’s time to gear up for spring . . . and track your progress.


Fitbit Flex, a wristband activity tracker ($99.95 each), is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 technology, which enables you to track your steps, distance traveled, calories burned and sleep cycle and sync your progress with Apple and Android devices.

What are those awesome futuristic lights, you ask? The five built-in LED indicators monitor daily activity levels, with each light representing 20 percent of your goal.

Even more useful, you can set the band to be your alarm clock. It gently vibrates to wake you, which is much better than a jarring iPhone ringtone. Welcome to the future.
