With the new year in full swing and January coming to an end, many of us are feeling the pressure to stick to our New Year’s resolutions. Life catches up with us, we get busy with work and other obligations, and our resolutions fall by the wayside. One of the most common New Year’s resolutions, to lose weight and get fit, is also the most frequently broken resolution. Statistics have shown that 1 in 3 people ditch their New Year’s resolutions by the end of January, and only 8% of people succeed at reaching their goals. But don’t let these numbers discourage you! Beating the odds and living a healthier lifestyle is more achievable with the growing availability of fitness technology. Smart watches and smartphone apps are practical resources to help bridge the disconnect between our healthy intentions and actual behavior, when willpower and internal motivations just aren’t strong enough.
Mondaine Helvetica No1 Smart Watch
Amongst the various fitness bands and activity trackers, the Mondaine Helvetica No1 Smart Watch offers the ability to set and track your goals daily without sacrificing style, making it easy to incorporate into your daily life. Taking the modern, original design of the Helvetica No1 Bold and adding the latest smart technology, Mondaine created a device with the functionality of an activity and sleep tracker in the sophisticated design of a Swiss analog watch.
Research has proven the best strategies for success include a proactive attitude with preparation, visualizing your goals, tracking your progress, and acute self-awareness. The features of the Mondaine Helvetica No1 Smart make it easy for anyone to employ these tactics and support wellness objectives.
Set your activity goals for daily steps, calories burned, and total distance with MotionX®, set sleep cycle alarms to maximize the quality of your sleep, and record how much time you spend in deep sleep, light sleep, or awake with Sleeptracker®. Setting resolute goals helps you to stay committed and to visualize your successes.
Track Your Progress
“If you can not measure it, you can not improve it” rings true for reaching your goals. Using data to identify plateaus and evaluate what is working and what isn’t is an effective strategy for improvement. Tracking your progress via the MotionX® app is also a valuable source of motivation and positive affirmation.
Once your goals are set, the watch displays the percentage of sleep, activity, and overall goals achieved throughout the day. Statistics of steps, calories burned, and sleep can then be displayed on a daily, weekly, or monthly overview on the app.
Carrying a "coach" with you directly on your wrist with "get active" alerts and tips for better activity and sleep provides a form of accountability, motivation, and mindfulness. These constant reminders and added support enhance your capacity to sustain motivation and increase the probability of success as you strive towards your goals.
