So this is a two part series. Part One is the before my Apple Watch and Part Two is after. This is so that I will be totally unbiased afterwards and give a true account as to whether or not I truly needed it.
My sad and lonely wrist is Apple Watch-less. I'm into fitness and so far I've managed to make ends meet by using other means. For example, I run and I have to wear my huge iPhone 6+ on my hip. I can't even wear out on my arm it's so big. Not a biggie I found this ultra cool fanny pack like bag I wear on my hip. I call it my Kangaroo pouch, but really it's a running belt. I got it at Amazon, check it out here, you will love it!
My Gear Beast waist belt has been my partner in crime in keeping up with tracking my fitness. I can't possibly think of being able to do it any other way. I usually wear it all day just to get an accurate reading of how active I was that day. It helps with counting calories too since I know how many calories I burned with my daily walking and exercise.
Overall I am not completely thrilled with my way of tracking my fitness this way. Wearing it under a coat wasn't so bad but now that the hot weather is coming I don't see how I can keep wearing it. Maybe on a long hike it would still work. I can't say I haven't managed to find a way and continue to but all I know is that my fitness tracking is limited to only when I wear my phone around my waist. I know I'm much more active than what my phone tells me but I have no other way of knowing.
A cheaper alternative would be to buy a fitness band, many are sold for around $100 bucks, why not go that route? Because! There's an even better way and I can't wait to try it out. I dream of the day I get it and of how it will be able to make my life better and compete... Or not. We'll see...
Part Two. To be continued...
