Health Tech Watch VR
In the past, health & technology didn't always mesh very well. Now luckily they are coming together to help us stay healthy.
When you got a routine that works, it's great. However, there are always going to be days where it is hard to stay motivated. Luckily, making it a fun game to compete can keep us moving, specifically with the following two:
- VR - games like Beat Saber on Meta/Oculus Quest VR can really get you moving. And since I have family & friends that have it, we can compete with each other as well.

- Watch - I was hesitant to wearing a watch again. Then my health insurance plan had a program where I could earn an Apple Watch for close to free, so I gave it a shot. I'm really enjoying it specifically for:
Friendly competition - you can add others that have the watch, so I've added family & friends so we can compete with each other. The watch uses rings to measure 3 areas - activity/steps, time standing, & time spent working out.
Tracking - it is great for all sorts of activities/workouts, like running, biking, & even helping to count pool laps.
Sleep - you can also use it with sleep tracking apps, which is helpful to stay on top of whether you are sleeping enough
Tied less to a phone - and the best part is not needing to have my phone on me all the time. I can quickly see & respond to incoming texts, check what's next on my calendar, the weather, download music to play on it, & it has apps that will even help me track my disc golf games.
