My Weekly Review (#5) – Smartwatches

My Weekly Review (#5) – Smartwatches

Welcome back! On this weeks recommendation, I’ll be talking about smartwatches, and more specifically why I love the Apple Watch.

I began dabbling in the smartwatch game a little over a year ago with a knock-off from Amazon. I had taken some time off from my usual workout routine and wanted something to track my daily steps, but I also didn’t want to pay $400 for an Apple Watch. It served its purpose for about six months before I received a Fossil smartwatch for my birthday. While the Fossil was exceedingly nicer, it wasn’t waterproof and was just a bit more difficult to actually track steps/exercise. This brings me to the Apple Watch I bought about a month ago, and I have to say it is beyond worth the money. You can get the prior generation (gen 3) off of Amazon for about $200, which is right about the same as the Fossil I owned.

Having the Apple Watch has almost made it fun keeping track of my activity again. Of course, you can have it set up for constant reminders to keep moving, but my favorite part is probably that when you see how close you are to your goals you want to put that extra bit of work in to close your rings. Not to mention it seems much more accurate than the knock-off smartwatch (surprise, surprise) and somewhat more accurate than the Fossil.

So for any of you looking to get a smartwatch I recommend doing some research to see which ones fit your goals and budget! Thanks again for reading my weekly recommendation. As always, please leave some feedback and give my page a follow so you can experience all of my content. I’d love to hear from all of my wonderful readers, so be sure to rate/comment often!

My Weekly Recommendation (#4) (6/11/19)

My Weekly Recommendation (#4) – MCT Oil

This week’s recommendation will cover something new that I have been adding to my morning routine, MCT oil. MCT stands for Medium Chain-Triglycerides and these fatty oils are easily digested by our bodies. I started adding MCT into my morning cup of coffee for a little extra kick to start my day, but since then I have learned that MCT oil has health benefits I didn’t even know about! These fats are great for fueling your brain in the morning but can also help burn extra fat, strengthen your immune system, and even help reduce Lactate for those of us with extremely active lifestyles. I currently use a vanilla creamer-based oil that goes right into my coffee, but there are many other types and flavors that can be put in (or on) just about anything. Since adding this to my routine, I have 100% noticed more energy as well as increased clarity, which has been great for getting some early morning writing in. So, if you’re looking for an extra pick-me-up in the AM, I strongly suggest looking into adding MCT oil to your diet.

Thanks for reading this weeks rec!
