Wearables to Enhance Your Health and Wellbeing
Where there was once a watch, there is now a tracker for health and fitness on many a wrist, as a reported 1 in 5 people own a wearable.
Technology is advancing at a fast rate and so are your wearables – here are our recommendations for those that are worth the investment:
Upright Pose: The wearable is placed upon the upper back and held tight with a skin safe sticker that allows your posture to be monitored throughout the day. When you begin to slouch, hunch or sit unevenly it will vibrate to remind you to sit upright and correct your posture. This wearable takes posture awareness to the next level and is great for people who sit down for long periods of time at work. Connect with their App for your results.
