I really have everything I need to be fit: A gym membership, my iPhone 4S, lots of workout clothes, my running shoes, swimsuits, and, when the weather gets warmer, my bike. Still, I'm daydreaming about a few things that might help me achieve my goals. These are all in the nice-to-have-but-not-essential category:
Lose It! Premium ($39.99)
I have been using Lose It! for a while now, and would love to give the premium version a spin. I haven't been able to find out a lot of information yet, but the premium version offers meal tracking, new goals, and integration with a lot of popular fitness gadgets. I haven't bit the bullet yet, just because I'd like to see a review or get a trial to make sure I'd really use the new features.
Polar H7 Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Sensor ($62.37)
I have a Polar heart rate monitor but I barely use any of the features because it's too difficult to set the heart rate target training zone or readjust things like my weight and age. I was just thinking that it would be easier to have a strap that could send to an app on my iPhone, did a search, and found this. I will probably buy something like this if and when my current HRM gives up the ghost.
Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker ($99.95)
Believe it or not, I'm just as interested in the sleep tracker as in the activity tracker, which is why I'd like the One and not the Zip. I know that several other bloggers, including Shauna, use the FitBit and like it, and I have heard great reviews of it on Fat2Fit Radio.I am a little afraid of spending $100 on something that is so easily lost, but I think having a step counter like this could motivate me to get up off my butt a little more.
Withings WiFi Body Scale ($159.00)
I have a Tanita body-fat scale that I got when I was 39. I know this because that's how old it still thinks I am. It works fine, and is probably just as accurate as any body-fat scale can be. But it isn't cool and wi-fi integrated, like this one is. This is definitely low on the priority list but it just seems like a cool thing to have.
Anything I've missed? I am not really much of a gadget girl, so something has to seem really innovative and useful to get my attention.
