When it comes to fitness & yoga, a lot of “tech-forward” millennials are practising asanas with advanced wearables. Fitness trackers are especially useful to help beginners manage & maintain a fitness discipline, and reap the benefits of yoga & meditation.
Thanks to state-of-the-art wearables, you keep can keep a check on vital stats like that enhances your fitness & yoga sessions. Also, when we say state-of-the art we are referring to the PLAYFIT wearable range, just saying!
Asanas such as touching the big toes of your feet while standing up and going down with knees straight, and touching the back of your feet with your chest forward in seating position, immensely help your heart. You can try the PLAYFIT SW75 smartwatch that has a dedicated yoga mode. With this fitness tracker, your heart rate pulses and the blood flow through your nerves are detected. When you perform these exercises, it would read your heart rate in Beats Per Minute. This helps you understand how certain asanas can significantly stabilise your heart rate levels.
Planks and the pose where you keep your torso high up in the 90-degree angle while you stay in the push-up position, let you burn calories faster than many other exercises out there. The longer you stay in these positions, the faster you will do away with fat. Our PLAYFIT fitness trackers, have the nifty stopwatch feature, allowing you to conveniently time your asanas. You will be able to focus more on how long you are able to perform the exercise with any of these easy-to-use, lightweight wearables.
All our PLAYFIT wearables, PLAYFIT SW75, PLAYFIT 21 and PLAYFIT 53, have multiple features. These are adaptable to different activities. One interesting feature is the step count when you practice the art of yoga. If you think you have to stay in a stationary position during yoga, think again! The Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutation, comprises 12 poses to be done one after the other. You can do as many sets you want, given that you don’t get exhausted to the core. As the asana involves your feet moving continuously, any of these fitness trackers will calculate the accurate step count and show you the results instantly.
Tracking your sleep cycle gives you insights on hours of healthy sleep to remain active and healthy. Apart from that, it can also analyse the quality of your nightly slumber. You should know that your sleep is largely affected by your daytime activities. Yoga is a great stress buster and some of the poses such as legs up against the wall while you lie down or spinal twists largely help in giving you a sound sleep. While you may not know initially whether or not you are getting a night of good sleep, an advanced activity tracker (like ours, of course) will show you the difference.
You already know the answer to that. But if you sill want our “unbiased” opinion, the PLAYFIT devices are an innovative range of smart bands that can also be beneficial for you when you start with yoga sessions. They come with round-the-clock heart rate monitoring along with offering precise data on your fitness and activity rates. Moreover, you can use them for 15 days at a stretch before their batteries run out. In fact, the PLAYFIT SW75 comes with 14 different sport modes, including yoga activities.
You may want to be as far away from electronic devices as possible when you want to practice yoga. However, tracking calories you have burnt with a few asanas in real-time will make you want to do more, for sure. Tracking stats will also help you better understand the importance of yoga for your body.
