Is it worth considering a wearable device such as a watch or ring, or get into the data and insights from these health-related monitoring and tracking applications?
That’s what we get into in this episode, as we explore the impact wearable tech and tracking apps have had on Steve’s training, wellness, nutrition and day-to-day life over the last couple of years, and the potential of for this space over the coming years. The reality is, people have, and can continue to manage their lives, health and body shape without tech, data and added complexity. That said, does this new technology help you achieve your goals faster, more precisely and inform you in ways your basic intuition cannot?
