You Can Boost The Number Of Your Daily Steps By Wearing A Fitness Tracker, Study Shows

You should probably wear a fitness tracker if you want to increase your daily steps, according to a recent study. Brigham Young University researchers reveal that a fitness tracker can increase the amount of time spent walking even if the individual doesn’t look at the device. 

Wearing a fitness makes someone increase activity. 

Most importantly, study participants who wore activity trackers reported taking 318 additional steps daily compared to those who did not. It’s worth noting that this persisted even when the participants weren’t pursuing any specific fitness objectives or rewards and when they couldn’t see the tracker’s recorded step total.

BYU Marriott School of Business and study co-author Prof Bill Tayler said that People are programmed to react to things that are measured since when something is quantified, it feels important. So naturally, human behaviour will change whenever they have an Apple Watch or Fitbit because they wish to increase their activity. However, it’s useful for individuals to understand that simply being conscious that anything is tracking their steps makes them more active.

Actually, a little activity can make a big difference in your health. Moreover, researchers claim that anyone working in the healthcare sector or companies with a stake in the general welfare may find their work valuable.

Researchers enrolled 90 subjects in the study. 

For researchers to find people’s walking habits while wearing a fitness tracker, researchers wanted to know how much individuals were walking before wearing a fitness tracker or how those wearing a device walked compared to a group that was not wearing one. Researchers used the step-tracking feature in iPhone.  

Researchers accessed data from the smartphones of 90 participants who weren’t told that steps from the previous week were being considered. The data provided a baseline measurement that covered how much individuals walked before the monitoring began. Some subjects were given fitness devices without watchers, and some were not told what the study purpose was.

BYU graduate Chrisitan Tadje said that tracking and measurement preceded improvement. Therefore if you are looking for improvement, you need to track your progress.
