Leading a health lifestyle is rewarding. It’s even more fun when you can incorporate technology to keep you motivated, on track, and help you set goals. That’s exactly what the new Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear Fit do together.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is more than just a smart phone with the latest in technology and a kick-ass 16 mega pixel camera. It will become your healthy living companion.
For starters, the Galaxy S5 comes with S Health software. You can create a personal fitness tracker which will help you set goals and guide you through your daily fitness routines, quickly and consistently. S Health offers a plethora of exercises yo can do at the gym that are simple and easy to follow. It also tracks your walking distance, speed, duration, calories and more, especially important when cardio training.
Wearable technology is the latest trend for tech-geeks to fitness nuts. The Samsung Gear Fit automatically connects to the Galaxy S5, providing real-time updates, and tracking your progress. And just like the Samsung S5, it also has a built-in heart rate monitor. Sleep is incredibly important when it comes to healthy living and exercise, and the Gear Fit can track your sleep, including total motionless hours. It’s completely customizable, from being able to choose the background display design to the automatic messages you can program to reply to texts and emails right from your wrist! It’s a fun little gadget that where fashion meets function.
Back to the Samsung S5. On top of being able to accurately track and measure your fitness, it’s designed for active living. The hard-shell case is both dust and water resistant, meaning you can wear it running in the dessert or outside on a rainy day, without fear of it getting ruined.
There’s nothing like bragging when you’re pushing through a workout or enjoying amazing scenery while out for a run. That 16 mexa pixel camera is one of the world’s fastest HDR, auto-focus cameras available in a smartphone. Connected to the TELUS 4G LTE network, and you’ll be posting selfies like crazy that will make all your followers jealous they weren’t along side with you.
It’s fair to say that not everyone is comfortable with switching to a new device; it can definitely be intimidating. That’s where TELUS can help.
