So over this last week I got myself a FitBit charge 2 – monitoring my heart rate, steps, calories, sleep … I kept my lifestyle the exact same as usual. Going to and from lectures, the library, work.. had a night out – nothing out of the ordinary. But I used the Fitbit to be more aware of my health, and the affect of the activities on my body.
I made a vlog of the week just to show, that I literally just did my day to day routine, no extreme exercises or special foods. One negative though, when I was wearing it to sleep to monitor my sleep it did star to irritate my wrist watch ⌚️😣
Below I’ve pasted in my dashboard from the Fitbit app/website which is really easy to use and monitor.
