With the advent of smartphones, personal gps and mass social-media integration, life-tracking habits and devices are becoming more and more common, if not the norm.
Los “smartphones” cada vez son más buenos que puedes conectarle casi cualquier dispositivo para medir y obtener información vital. Este es el caso del Breathometer , el primer medidor de concentración de alcohol en la sangre para “smartphones”.
If you want to track, monitor, and record all the details of your run, bike ride, swim, or other intense physical event, then there excellent devices on the market for your specific needs. For the other 23 hours of the day when you are walking to the office, sitting at your desk, going for a simple jog, walking the dog, and even sleeping then you may want to consider the Fitbit Ultra, Nike+ Fuelband, or Jawbone UP.
Get ready for a lot of Fitbit Ultra love, readers! After our less-than-satisfying experience with the Jawbone UP , I was eager to try another activity tracker, as, at the very least, the UP managed to peak my interest in tracking my daily activities.

This morning, Nike+ announced the Nike+ Fuelband , a device meant to be worn on the wrist that uses an accelerometer to track the user’s daily calorie burn, steps taken, time active, and NikeFuel earned.

If there’s one trend we’ve seen over the past few months when it comes to lifestyle tech products, it’s hands-down fitness and health tracking gadgets . Everyone is trying to come up with the best, most accurate, and yet easy-to-wear health and fitness gadget, and there is more than a handful of contenders. While I haven’t had a chance to check out all the gadgets yet, I did manage to get ahold of the BodyMedia Core Armband ($179) powered by IBM technology for some hands-on testing.
Wear your Fitbit One somewhere near your torso during the day.
