Aside from pushing myself to cook more at home, one of my resolutions when I first moved to the Lion City was to get into a fitness routine. It wasn't easy, I have to say. I started really slow and it was only when my sister got engaged and we were months away from her wedding that I found the real motivation to go to the gym regularly and to aim for my weight loss goals. After her wedding, the holiday feasting began and I tell you, the struggle to get back to my 3x a week gym routine was hard and real. Luckily, I will always have Paul and my friend D who will always motivate me to go and work out. Add to the fact that I discovered indoor cycling and I've been so in love with it for more than a year now. That's true love and commitment, you guys. :)
Aside from the heart rate monitor, I like the sleep monitoring function. Believe me, for the longer time, I thought that I was sleeping just fine. It was when I started wearing the Fitbit Charge HR that it's showing me that throughout my 8 hours of sleep, I am restless half of the time. That's quite alarming, isn't it? It means that I basically just fall into deep sleep for 4 hours. No wonder I'd sometime wake up with a terrible migraine or I'd feel so exhausted even after sleeping. Eventually, I started to take more notice on my sleep and tried several ways to improve it. Sleep is really important and I don't want to make this the reason that will cause me to fall sick later on in life.
Lastly, as the watch is synced with my phone, every time I get a call and my phone is in my bag, my watch would gently vibrate and the name of the caller would come out on the display panel. That is just so cool as this makes sure that I don't get to miss any call ever again. I think I have to give these to "some people" in the family who never answers their phones. ;)
It has been close to a year since I've made the switch to Fitbit Charge HR and I'm really loving it. If there's one thing that I feel should be improved is the battery viewing option. For some reason, I have to open the app to see if my watch is running out of battery or not. Wish there'll be a way to view this on the watch itself to lessen the extra step of opening the app.
