From steps to blood oxygen, there are more metrics you can track in your body than ever before. If you're an Apple user, there's no better way to do that than with an Apple Watch. That's because an Apple Watch and an iPhone work together to help you get a full picture of your overall health. Plus, the latest version, the Apple Watch Series 7, comes crammed with ways to promote and track your fitness, including a trial membership to the subscription exercise platform Apple Fitness+. And it's on sale Prime Day!
That's right, even Apple Watches are up for grabs. You can also expect deals on fitness equipment, cookware, mattresses, and dozens of popular beauty items during the retailer's big e-commerce holiday.
What’s more, experts say that tracking certain metrics, specifically heart rate, can be super valuable to help you get in touch with your body and live an active life. "Your heart rate is an amazing tool to showcase how your body's reacting to the individual workout, and it's a significant upgrade versus just going by 'feel,' which levels up the knowledge base around overtraining, lack of sleep, and other effects that aren't recognized by the average fitness consumer,"Joanna Stahl, trainer and founder of Go2Practice, previously told Well+Good. "The data is easily available, it makes you a better athlete, creates awareness and intensity around your workouts, and showcases your results to review, be proud of, and grow from."
There are other heart rate trackers out there, but nothing works quite as seamlessly with your iPhone as the Apple Watch. If you're ready to take the smart watch plunge, today is a great day to do that. Thanks to Prime Day, the latest Apple Watches are on sale, an event as rare as a total solar eclipse.
