Many fitness enthusiasts will say that measuring the number of steps is meaningless, but the facts are not entirely true.
First, step statistics can prevent you from exercising excessively, especially if you are receiving high-intensity training or taking part in manual labor.
Endurance coach and fitness author Matt Fitzgerald said: “Your body can’t tell the pressure and other pressures of exercise. No matter what the pressure will put a burden on the body.”
Secondly, the fitness tracking device will remind you to stand up and do something every hour, which is really useful for small white-collar workers who work hard all day long. You know, sitting all the time can cause many physical problems.
Studies have shown that long-term sitting posture can cause us to suffer from chronic diseases. Even exercise can’t offset the negative consequences of long-term sitting posture.
