Here's today's feel-good story:
Just by wearing a fitness tracker, you are more likely to walk up to 40 minutes every day and shed 2.2 pounds in just a few months.
This large study looked at 164,000 people all over the world who use fitness devices and found many benefits.
“Wearable activity trackers are effective across all age groups and for long periods of time,” said doctoral candidate Ty Ferguson. “They encourage people to exercise on a regular basis, to make it part of their routine—and to set goals to lose weight.”
“The other reported benefit is that WATs improved depression and anxiety through an increase in physical activity.”
