I may be an "old dog" but I love new gadgets. I'm the "12 year old" family calls for technical assistance. The package arrived at my door (I received a photo from the delivery person) without a knock. Go figure. Proof they dropped it off if someone stole it? Duh, ring my bell!
By the time I went to bed several hours later I had my dark blue, gold rimmed gizmo strapped to my wrist. I woke several times during the night and I noticed a faint green sparkle of light emitting underneath the tech as it flopped a bit on my wrist. It has now been dubbed "Tinkerbelle" (Tink)... Hey, OKM, right up your naming alley!
My first impression.
Tink told me what time I went to bed and when I arose. I knew that.
Tink told me I had decent sleep. I knew that.
Tink told me how many minutes I was awake during my rest and when.
I knew that, too but how did Tink? How did my minutes spent DH fighting for covers or getting my pillow just right when I rolled over come to be a pink line on a navy background? Why do I have two thin lines between 1130 and 230 at which time I got up to visit the loo. I thought I was in a dead sleep! Was that when was scrunching my pillow for comfort? Tech. I need to look that up.
The step/mileage tracker logger matches my current Samsung app. Tink tells me I climbed 5 floors on my walk. That proves some of my walk IS steep. OK, I like that.
I think the calories burned is optimistic. It doesn't seem to take into account my age and slowing metabolism. Additionally I changed the max heart rates to achieve for exercise. I take so many danged meds now I'm lucky if I break 100BPM when I'm sweating bullets!
So, gang, we'll see how this goes and if it wearing this changes any of my behaviors!
