What do you think of health monitoring?

Fitbit, step trackers, heart rate monitors, GPS running watches… what do you think about health monitoring? Do you find it motivating? Or just annoying? Me, I’m a serious data geek. I love having the numbers and being able to track my progress. Recently I saw a fundraising campaign for the coolest health monitor yet. It’s called Angel. The application possibilities are almost limitless. If they get the funding they’ll make it. I’m super excited. Check it out and tell me what you think.

    Nothing wrong with being a data geek! I use the Cyclemeter app on my iPhone for every bike ride — it records far more data than any sane person could ever want. The most important thing for me is my heart rate (the app announces my heart rate at set intervals during the ride). In addition, every morning I checking my resting pulse and blood pressure. I am 54 years old and my morning rest pulse is 48 — but when it starts approaching the mid 50’s I know it is time to take a day off from training.

    I love my Garmin 610 w/ heart rate monitor. I’m not a slave to the data. I feel that knowing my pace and heart rate are helpful for my training and racing.

      I love my Garmin too. I’ve recently discovered the built-in interval workouts, which really take the guess work out of it!
