Wearable Technology For Health and Wellness
Constantly evolving technology is changing how we live our lives. From managing our schedules and social lives to tracking health and wellness, the average person in the 21st century relies on smart devices to help run their life. As technology improves, the features that are available to us today become more and more useful.
Technological improvements are not only making strides for better functioning devices, but also for better health. This article from Positive Health Wellness discusses eight ways that modern technology can help make you healthier, from the doctor’s office to your own personal health.

Of course there is the Apple Health app but there are other downloadable apps that specialize in tracking your health like Myfitnesspal for logging food and exercise, Couch to 5K to get new runners up and moving and Sleep Cycle to log sleep patterns.

These 6 wearables can change the way you live, workout and more!
