Link love (the #fittech edition)

NZMuse - Link love roundup with awesome reads from the week

I’ve always resisted applying any sort of structure to my running, or exercise in general.

But for the past few weeks I’ve been living life with a smartwatch and sticking to a running schedule.

Why? I’m helping a friend’s company test out their technology – and between the hardware and the app, I’m kinda hooked…

It makes sense, really. I’m an Obliger (according to Gretchen Rubin’s Four Tendencies) and so having a routine/schedule to commit to, plus the gamification and points accumulation, actually works for me.

I’m particularly fascinated by the data on my sleeping patterns – the proportion of deep sleep hours vs light sleep hours, and the poor broken graph that pops up on particularly troubled nights.

I’ve also downloaded an app called Seven, which gives you 7-minute workouts you can do at home, and just might change my life.

What’s your approach to working out – structured or not? Does fitness tech and data tracking interest you at all?

    I just started using the 100 push-ups app. A structured plan is helpful but I’ve never used an app. Before kids, classes were the best way for me to get that structure.

    I do have a fitbit from a work fitness challenge and it’s interesting but I don’t really do anything with the data.
